    If Only More Young People Would Understand This.

    Child and teenage culture assumes that those with minority lifestyle choices cannot be trusted, are likely to prove uncooperative, are immune to shame and other social sanctions. And so those who happen to be out of step are quite vulnerable to verbal and physical abuse. Until...

    I was enrolled into the Gifted Program

    when I was in the fourth grade (considerably late given the criteria). It was strange at first given that my IQ was a mere 145 with little to show for it compared to the 150+ IQ's of my peers (those 5 points make a massive difference by the way). I realized later on that I was...

    Why Gifted Appears Weird...

    I just loved the name of this group when I searched 'gifted'... When you "get it" long before the person who is telling you a story is even half through telling it...when you can "skim" an article and get it...when you start laughing before the joke is even...

    Separate School

    I go to a gifted school, so I don't deal with anything at school, obviously.  But since I'm very verbose (I know some people who go out of their way to be verbose- I hate that, but I don't do it intentionally, so why dumb it down?) it's very common for people to 'compliment' my...
