Oh lord this is refreshing.
“Giftedness” and ADHD are often side-by-side but not alwasy of course.
I was prematurely born – 6.5 months — another common factor. Just tossing it in out of curiousity.
IQ is either 134 or 142: My mother (whose IQ is apparently around 110-120) was smart and told us one of the scores was mine and one is my sisters, but she wouldn’t tell us which was which.
To this very day, my sister and I are convinced that the other one 142 but no, she really is the 142: I’m 134 as she can hang onto legal nitty-gritty details that just makes me start to spin.
quest on the past couple of weeks has been connecting some wikipedia categories to “what seems important to me?” and then to each other if they have a path. I’ve done this with Wikipedia articles before, but not with categories/subcats.
Anyway, what’s been bubbling to the top is INTUITION, OBJECT OF THE MIND, COGNITION, INTROSPECTION, COGNITIVE SCIENCE, EMERGENCE…
in fact it’s an earlier version of this project that made me realize once and for all YOU HAVE ADHD SWALLOW IT ALREADY and I joined some groups like this. I’ve avoided gifted circles because they’re “Not My Kind Of People” (too much like me in the ways I don’t like)
