Balanced research and practice
From extensive life stories of around 100 probably highly gifted (145+) clients during the last 20 years, a specialized career coach for the gifted made a first attempt to distill what may characterize highly gifted adults.
A general profile for this very diverse group could not be formulated. However, it was possible to articulate 16 remarkable characteristics, life themes or life events, that in combination of 5 or more, may point to highly giftedness.
This may help to (self) diagnose the possibility of highly giftedness. It may also help to explain life events and to find ingredients for a life purpose. It gives new perspective for aims in a job or own business that fits this very rare and sometimes isolated group.
