I Am Profoundly Gifted

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 100 People

    I am currently in middle school,

    and I find myself unable to relate to some aspects of stories told by other profoundly gifted people, like really intense bullying or dropping out. Maybe because I'm a girl? I am currently attending a gifted children's school, but it is not AT ALL filled with gifted kids...

    IQ of 153

    That has caused me to see most people as idiots (they are), but it's not such a big deal. At least it gives me an edge over the idiots at strategical thinking!

    Pompernickle, Jazz, and Whatnot?

    I'm PG, but I'm also a profound underacheiver. I don't really know why. Of course, I've read many articles about underacheivement in gifted individuals, but none are entirely satisfactory. The whole subject of giftedness is rather ambiguous. Anyway. My IQ is estimated at 178...

    I guess I should have known at the time I was

    gifted (different that most anyone else) when it was recommended by the school staff that I be skipped from the 5th grade to the 7th grade. Me mom, didn't go for it, and I remained in the 5th grade that year. Her instincts were good. I was in-mature for my age and still liked...

    School Was Hell, Finally Getting My Life On Track Again

    My brothers and sisters had been identified as gifted earlier, and my parents were a little bit scared by how much earlier I had reached milestones as a baby/toddler and at the level of math and reading I had achieved, so I was tested (stopped at about 200). I was always begging...

    Artistically Gifted

    As a boy, I’d gaze closely at the reflection in windows or mirrors to look at my face. Both the subtle and blunt hostility emanating from my peer group inevitably sowed self-doubt. What made school life even more irksome was trying to decipher what triggered this selective...

    Hello!

    Just the title of this group makes me feel better, although I am not sure how safe it would be for me to share my story. Nevertheless I thought it would be nice to join in and say hello :) P.s. I can see that people got a chance to read this but now you can see why I didn't share...

    Comes With a Price

     I was tested with an IQ of 149 at age 6, and later at age 12, tested again at 162.   I never experienced the severe bullying that others talk about, as I was put into a small Sub-School (I.E. a wing in a public school designated to gifted students) with other 'gifted...

    Very Gifted... And Then?

    I guess I am neither completely "profoundly gifted" (with an IQ of 155+), nor "normally gifted". This has however been sufficient to make me "different" and for people, even now that I am older and in the workforce, to notice now and then that I am 'so intelligent', despite my...

    Such Is My Life

    They say that in the case of a genius, there is often some prevalent deficiency elsewhere in the brain. While I am certainly not implying that I am a genius, rather, not, I am exceptionally intelligent. My brain deficiency comes in the form on unbalanced chemicals resulting in...

    Verbally Gifted, One Token Grade Skip, 12 Years of Public School Hell and Emotional Neglect

    I normally say I'm exceptionally gifted--I've estimated my IQ at about 160 on the old Stanford Binet that has the high ceilings and the possible 20 pt verbal bias, but that's just a hunch. I used to admin the forum Gifted Haven, which has now vanished from the internet. It bites...

    I will keep my initial story brief. In addition to being profoundly gifted (and not knowing it for most of my life, although all the signs were there, in hindsight), I am profoundly isolated (from others).

    The World'S One Crime

    My glasses are tinted red. All I wanted was to be left alone. Surely the interior of one's own mind constitutes the most sacred space in any human? An intrusion upon it seems a violation, an assault. This is how I have felt throughout my education. My mother says that by the age...
