Our aim in this study is to determine relative frequency of depressionin Gifted Intelligence as compared with Normal persons.

IQ identification was performed by both Wechsler Adult Intelligence scaling and Ravens progressive Matrices.
Results: out of 90 Normal persons, 36 were depressed (40%) and among 56 Gifted Intelligence, 35 were depressed. (62.5%) In other words relative frequency of depression in Gifted Intelligence- with significant differences- is more.(p<0.05).
Conclusion: Although Gifted Intelligence have more ability in opposition to stress- because higher level of IQ-but in this study was observed that prevalence of depression in Gifted Intelligence is more.
