4. They generate a great quantity of ideas and solutions to problems

5. They have a well-developed sense of humour

6. They have a great deal of curiosity, which makes them question everything

7. They usually worry about the problems of the world

8. They adore reading

9. They like complicated board games

10. They are leaders

11. They persevere ( they concentrate on a task and persist until they finish it)

12. They have a high level of self-judgement, demand much of themselves, and tend to be dissatisfied.

  • Quite a few of them. But whether they are gifted or not is not so important. The main thing is that they live a happy fulfilling life and perhaps make a positive contribution to society.

  • None of my children scored full marks. Might not be gifted but sure are special to the parents.

  • Even a child suffering from down syndrome can be a gifted child in his/her own way. I read of one such boy here who is gifted in painting. We may be gifted but if it is of no use if we misue/abuse our gifts.
