An estimated two-thirds of the gifted people (IQ of 130 or higher) experience long-term and excessive workload, sometimes even resulting in burnout. The aim of this paper is to provide insight into the relationship between job demands and burnout symptoms and the moderating role of personal resources (i.e. psychological capital). With the Job Demands-Resources model, several hypotheses are formulated that we tested by data collected among 193 gifted employees.
