Asynchronous development has caused socio-emotional conflicts among Gifted and Talented Students when their social and emotional abilities do not develop in parallel with their intellectual abilities. Therefore, this study aims to identify and explore the socio-emotional issues faced, as well as the effects of the problems and the factors that influence them. The study uses a mixed-method research approach, involving a total of 217 students from Basic 1 to Level 2 at Pusat Genius@Pintar Negara, UKM. The instruments utilized for this study include the Student Socio-Emotional Stress (ITSeP) questionnaire, The Overexcitability Questionnaire-Two (OEQII), and the Multidimensional Perfectionism Inventory. The results of the study related to perfectionism recorded high scores for all components, with the self-perfection component scoring the highest (4.58) and the component for perfectionism towards others scoring the lowest (4.08). The results of the study related to overexcitability showed that the emotional component recorded the highest value (3.75), while the psychomotor component recorded the lowest value (3.13). Regarding the analysis of emotional stress, the justice stress component recorded the highest value (4.07), while the family stress component scored the lowest (2.29). Qualitative findings reveal that the factors triggering socio-emotional problems are influenced by personal personality, genetics, and the environment, ultimately affecting daily life. The implication of this study is that it can serve as a reference for parents, educators, especially counselors, to understand the socio-emotional issues experienced by gifted and talented students. The information acquired will help to plan appropriate strategies to improve the holistic development of students.
