The Best Resources for Gifted Adults | Crushing Tall Poppies
Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see. Schopenhauer Photo: Nicole Meldahl. How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most. Stephen Covey. Gifted adults need coaches, therapists and mentors who can help them understand. Helping gifted, talented, and creative adults understand themselves, their gifts, and to live life more fully is my passion. Helping people understand and appreciate gifted, talented, and creative adults is my mission.
There has been comparatively little focus in the literature on the characteristics and social and emotional needs of gifted adults. Using observational data, the author attempts to delineate some of the positive and negative social effects of traits displayed by gifted adults. Five traits divergency, excitability, sensitivity, perceptivity, and entelechy seem to produce potential interpersonal and intrapersonal conflict. Unless gifted adults learn to value themselves and find support, identity conflicts and depression may result. Emphasis on self-growth through knowing and accepting self leads to the discovery of sources of personal power.
