    Giftedness is asynchronous development in which advanced cognitive abilities and heightened intensity combine to create inner experiences and awareness that are qualitatively different from the norm. This asynchrony increases with higher intellectual capacity. The uniqueness of the gifted renders them particularly vulnerable and requires modifications in parenting, teaching and counseling in order for them to develop optimally. (The Columbus group)

    Giftedness often comes with:

    – High sensitivity both sensory and emotionally (prone to sensory and emotional overstimulation )

    – Perfectionism (prone to anxiety and self-criticism)

    – High levels of empathy (prone to depressive feelings)

    – Increased levels of creativity (struggling to work ‘inside the box’)

    – Advanced reasoning and thinking abilities (a brain that never stops)

    – Advanced humor and language abilities (not speaking like peers do which can make them feel different)

    – Intense curiosity and appetite for learning (easily bored and intellectually understimulated)

    – Strong sense of justice (issues with friendships)

    – Ability for sustained focus (obsessive over hobbies, struggles with transitioning)
