207: But I’m Not Really THAT Smart

I’ve been hearing a lot more comments lately along the lines of “I relate to your work, but I’m not really gifted.” In this episode of Embracing Intensity, I discuss why gifted folks might not recognize their own gifts and some resources to explore if you suspect you might be gifted.

But I'm not really THAT smart!

  • My own experience and why I actually believed it despite underachievement.

  • 3 of my favorite books & resources to explore potential giftedness.
