La ricerca si è focalizzata sulle manifestazioni emotive nei bambini durante il lockdown de-rivante dalla diffusione del COVID-19. Un caso particolare è rappresentato dalla popola-zione di soggetti plusdotati, che presentano spesso un’elevata e più intensa sensibilità emo-tiva. È stato proposto un questionario costruito ad hoc compilato da 126 madri che hanno risposto riferendosi ad ognuno dei propri figli (N = 225), sia con plusdotazione sia con svi-luppo tipico. La prima fase di analisi dei dati ha considerato un gruppo di bambini apparte-nenti a famiglie con almeno un figlio con plusdotazione (N = 162) e un gruppo di bambini con sviluppo tipico (N = 63). Dalle analisi non emergono differenze significative tra i due gruppi, sia rispetto alle emozioni, sia agli stati d’animo; tuttavia, ulteriori analisi che con-frontano i bambini con plusdotazione (N = 100) con bambini con sviluppo tipico (N = 125) a prescindere dalla famiglia di appartenenza, mostrano come i primi sembrano sperimentare maggiori livelli di apatia (p < .001) e di insofferenza (p = .016) rispetto ai pari normotipici.
