Gifted and talented students are unique individuals. Therefore, this study has focused on measuring aspects of emotional intelligence, leadership, and personality types, as well as the need for activities to help build positive characters among the students. The study involved a total of 142 gifted and talented students using the IKEM MEQI instrument created by Noriah (2004) to measure emotional intelligence, the Big 5 Personality Instrument by John & Srivastava (1999) to measure personality types, and two aspects of leadership: Leader Attributes created by Rorlinda (2016) and Leader Mindset constructed by ELMI-Noriah (2014).The results of the study show that the overall level of emotional intelligence is ranked high (3.912). However, for the components of emotional awareness, empathy, self-control, influencing others, conflict management, and communication, the levels are moderate. The leadership variable in the leader attribute category also shows a high level overall, but the self-monitoring component remains at a moderate level. Furthermore, the leadership variable for the leader's mindset category shows a high level, but the components of recruits, placements, and relationships with peers are at a moderate level. Finally, the personality type variable shows that openness personality is at the highest level. The study's correlation analysis indicates a significant relationship between emotional intelligence and the leadership (attribute) of the leader, emotional intelligence with the (mindset) of the leader, and emotional intelligence with the personality type possessed by gifted and talented students. For the regression analysis, the factors contributing to emotional intelligence are personality extraversion and neuroticism. For the leadership component (leader attributes), the factors contributing to emotional intelligence are ethics, values, and collegiality.
