"A small amount of definitive research and a great deal of naturalistic observation have led to the belief that intensity, sensitivity and overexcitability are primary characteristics of the highly gifted."
I believe it!
Then I guess that I should brag about it that I posses these qualities!
Does being gifted actually help a person in life?
I guess I've always presumed that it makes us more sensitive, smart, creative, and resilient.
Gifted people have those characteristics but it's unclear those actually help a person in life.
I wonder what makes you say that? And characteristics DO help people in life, in your opinion?
