The “Me” Behind the Mask: Intellectually Gifted Students and the Search for Identity « SENG

To be valued within a peer culture which values conformity, gifted young people may mask their giftedness and develop alternative identities which are perceived as more socially acceptable. The weaving of this protective mask requires the gifted child to conceal her love of learning, her interests which differ from those of age-peers, and her advanced moral development.

If this assumed identity does indeed bring her the social acceptance she seeks, the gifted child may become afraid to take off her mask. Gifted children and adolescents need the opportunity to work and socialize with others of similar abilities and interests if they are to grow towards self-acceptance.

The vast majority of people think that gifted children are the smart, advantaged students in an esteemed, sometimes seemingly elitist, special program at school—it’s a universal misperception.

Sequential thinking is step by step linear thinking over time, while spatial thinking is an holistic system where all knowledge is interconnected in space.

Auditory thinking is associated with sequential thinking and visual-spatial thinking is associated with spatial thinking.

It is influenced by hearing and language and an awareness of time. Visual-spatial thinking is the hallmark of creativity and visual spatial learners usually gravitate to the creative professions eg. art, design, architecture, computer programming, graphics, animation, physics.

Cet article est une tentative d’approche de l’importance de certaines hormones jouant le rôle de neuro-transmetteurs dans la chimie du cerveau des personnes à haut potentiel et ses implications dans leur vie quotidienne.
