    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...

    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...

    I Am A Multipotentialite

    OK, "profoundly gifted" may be a bit of a stretch. But I seem to have a fairly high IQ, I speak four languages fluently, I am a talented illustrator and painter, a singer, writer and lyricist. I was very good academically, I studied at Oxford University, got an M.A., landed a job...

    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...

    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...

    Hello To All Pg's

    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).

    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...

    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!

    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...

    I got recognized as gifted

    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...

    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...
