Gifted Intensity

Be sure to check out this wonderful parent blog on some unique characteristics of gifted kids.  Life with Intensity

I'm reminded of this from Jim Delisle's Once Upon a Mind . . . 
  • Intensity of thought: Her mind is always whirring."
  • Intensity of purpose: "Once he makes up his mind to do something, he's not satisfied until it's accomplished."
  • Intensity of emotion: "She internalizes everyone anyone says about her."
  • Intensity of spirit: "He's always looking out for someone less fortunate who needs help."
  • Intensity of soul:  "She asks questions that philosophers have asked for centuries and gets upset when we can't give her definitive answers to them."
