In the company of other people very gifted students feel not always properly understood. Some feel a brindled cow, which is staring at. Expect more that they sit with 16 years in the University, that they find a regular joke funny. Very gifted students are exposed to different prejudices.

Other gifted people have a very long period of puberty and ask yourself: I don’t grow at all? The self-doubt – and also the doubts of others against the background of deep inner knowledge is a striking problem”or the intuition: I know that I can do something special or: I know that I can do something particularly well. Often lack the insight or even the courage to the next step – to next question then: but what? Or also: who can help me with this? The problem: Intellectually gifted people are often subtle sensitive. You can not always help themselves. You ever seem like sleeping beauty, waiting to be liberated. Freed from shyness and inhibition. Hochbegabungs forums, in which gifted feel relatively free are useful.
