The current study aimed to identify the predictability of the positive thinking of the level of psychological well-being among gifted and talented students. This study consisted of (170) students, who were identified as gifted students and integrated into secondary schools in Abha city, Saudi Arabia. The descriptive and correlational method was applied. The Positive Thinking scale (developed by the researchers) and the Rosemary Psychological Well-being scale (translated and prepared by the researchers) were applied to the study sample. The results indicated that the levels of both positive thinking and psychological well-being were high among gifted students in Abha city. There was a statistically significant positive relationship between positive thinking and both the dimensions of self-acceptance and positive relationships with others with the total score of psychological well-being. In addition, the positive thinking explained 7.6% of the variation in psychological well-being, and the value of p was statistically significant at the level of significance (α ≤ 0.05). The study recommended the need for a counseling program to educate gifted students and their parents about the importance of developing positive thinking and its association with psychological well-being.
