Gifted individuals are those who have one or more abilities that are significantly overdeveloped. Giftedness as a feature influences all aspects of the life of gifted persons, including their sociometric status. Since the social position significantly influences the social-emotional development of the individual, which is a prerequisite for the realization of the full potential of gifted students, a graduate thesis examines the sociometric status of a gifted student in a class. In the literature there are two different views on the influence of giftedness on the sociometric status of students. On the one hand, scientists claim that giftedness contributes to the positive sociometric status of students, while on the other hand, scientists claim that giftedness causes the student's negative sociometric status. Determining the sociometric status of a student is necessary for pedagogical action in order to improve this status, if there is a need for it. Two gifted students were identified by the survey questionnaire. The results of the sociometric survey of the students in the class, determined by the sociometric questionnaire, show that one of the students belongs to the sociometric category of average students, according to the sociometric status, and the second belongs to the sociometric category of "class stars". According to research results, a student belonging to the average sociometric category has developed two relationships of friendship with other students of his class, while a student belonging to the "class star" sociometric category has not developed any friendship with his classmates. Two gifted students are in the relationship of ignorance each other.
