This study aimed at analyzing creative problem-solv-ing (CPS) styles of gifted and talented students. The study was conducted as a quantitative study. The study group of the research consisted of 151 students 77 girls (51%); 74 boys (49%) who were enrolled in sci-ence and art centers in Ankara in the 2019-2020 aca-demic year. Sixty-five (43%) of students were talented in academics, 44 (29%) talented in music, and 42 (28%) talented in the arts. Data for this study were collected using the "Creative Problem Solving Styles Inven-tory". Data were analyzed using χ2 (chi-square) test, Cramer's V coefficient and descriptive statistics. Find-ings of the study showed that gifted and talented stu-dents in the process of the CPS preferred conceptual-izer style, generator style, optimizer style, and imple-menter style respectively. No relation was found be-tween students' CPS styles and their gender. Students' CPS styles differed according to their talent areas (general-music-art).
