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 finished being told...PEOPLE tend to think you're WEIRD! It's not that we are...it's just that our brains work faster, process faster and get to the point faster than some others, that's all. We need funnier comedy to entertain us, harder books to keep us enthralled and definitely stimulating conversations lest we feel a snooze coming on....

That was probably a really weird example of weird gifted, but hey, I'm gifted. Betcha wouldn't call me weird if you met me. ;)

"Born to be bored" might be a better slogan. Boredom is the cross to bear for the gifted.

Thats me to a T!! But going a little deeper..Im deeper.I feel more intensely ..physically, mentally, emotionally, sensually. I am hypersensative, and have intense esp..I am begining to love my gifts and who I am but only a couple of my close friends get me and understand. In relationships people want me back long after they hurt me..than they compare everyone to me based on how much I showed my love to a select few in my life. But all the while I rarely get a return half as sincere as what I give. <br />
Its a very frustrating thing, I feel very different, and most do not let themselves get to the level my mind, heart, and spirit reach...

I do the same things. I read fast, talk fast, only laugh if it's very funny, and think most conversations are slow and boring. <br />

So no, I wouldn't call you wierd!
