A wonderful and thought-provoking article, Sue. Thank you! Too often, people seem to act as thought being gifted is something you outgrow at age 18. It certainly continues into adulthood and has implications for one’s life in so many ways. For those interested, I would recommend, too, the following books: Living with Intensity; Bright Adults: Uniqueness and Belonging across the Lifespan; and Searching for Meaning: Idealism, Bright Minds, Disillusionment, and Hope.
