Is This ME?

Do you struggle with keeping quiet and being exuberant with ideas to make things better?  Do you see patterns, connections or solutions that seem obvious and yet others wonder where you are coming from?  Are you expected or expect yourself to settle on one career and yet so many things interest you?  Are you excited easily and also hurt easily?  Do you have lots of energy?  Do you often feel out-of-sync with others? Do you have a vivid imagination and are driven by your creativity?  Do you often question authority?  Do you need periods of contemplation?

These characteristics have been identified as a person with extra intelligence (Kuplers & Van Kempen) or gifted (Jacobsen or Streznewski or Silverman).  The key is you have high ability and are multitalented.  We need to understand ourselves to overcome the frustrations we experience with limiting our expression of our potential.  We are driven to be who we are, but have established strategies to fit in and not be noticed.  Yet, the spark remains within that wants to be fanned so that we can be a contribution.  Let’s do that today!
