This article explores the application of Dabrowski’s theory of positive disintegration focusing on the five overexcitabilities (OEs) to build an understanding of the intensities and sensitivity of gifted individuals. The five OEs and selected moral dilemmas were introduced to a group of gifted students in a three-week residential program. The objective was to build their understanding of their OEs and to explore the question of whether moral courage can be developed. The Loevinger-Wessler Questionnaire was used as a pre-posttest instrument to gauge the student’s growth toward autonomous behavior. Data indicated the students were able to demonstrate growth in their decision-making and autonomous behavior.
