The Gifted Adult: A Revolutionary Guide for Liberating Everyday Genius Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Are you relentlessly curious and creative... extremely energetic and focused, yet constantly switching gears... intensely sensitive, able to intuit subtly charged situations and decipher others' feelings? If these traits sound familiar, then you may be an Everyday Genius — a gifted adult of unusual vision who breaks the mold and isn't afraid to push progress forward.<P>Psychologist Mary-Elaine Jacobsen draws on a wide range of groundbreaking research and clinical experience to demystify what it means to be a gifted adult and shows America's Everyday Geniuses how to identify and free their extraordinary potential.<P>Filled with practical guidance and an in-depth personality-type profile for rating Everyday Genius, this revolutionary work unlocks our understanding of the unique personality traits that accompany unconventional intelligence. This book is the long-awaited bible for gifted adults and those who know, love, and work with them.
