Being gifted is usually associated with high scores on an intelligence test (> 130). Besides high intellectual ability, also motivation, perseverance, creativity and social factors play a major role in the manifestation of giftedness. As illustrated by the model below.
Not all gifted automatically find their way through life. Many have problems related to giftedness, such as underachievement, depression, loneliness, anxiety, learning problems, mood swings, irritability, feelings of inferiority, work related problems or other issues. Many gifted individuals who find out later in life that they have an IQ> 130 experience a kind of mourning process, ‘what would have happened if I had known otherwise?’
Although many gifted manage well in life, they sometimes need extra help. I am gifted and highly sensitive myself. As I work from strong intuition, I show you, the factors that have contributed to your problems with clear instructions to improvement. My experience as a gifted is a great advantage, especially considering that gifted individuals in therapy indicate that they actually lead the conversation. They outtalk the therapist, keep control and never come to experience their feelings, pain and sorrow. The understanding remains off and everything stays the same.

Gifted students are more imaginative and emotional
A study conducted at the University of Florida shows that gifted students tend to have more active imaginations than average students, and gifted girls are almost twice as likely as gifted boys to prefer imagination to practicality. Furthermore, the study indicates that gifted male students more often use their sense in solving problems than non-gifted male students. However, children with all different temperament styles can excel in school, especially if their parents understand how they solve problems and interact with others.
