High Achievers, Gifted Learners, or Creative Thinkers

High-Gifted-Creative.jpg

Which one describes you?

Re: High Achievers, Gifted Learners, or Creative Thinkers

Are you sure? I do not think there is an intersection of these

I am a gifted learner.

I would like to see a few more categories.

There is no claim that everyone falls into one of these three

Re: High Achievers, Gifted Learners, or Creative Thinkers

Could be a lot of people do not fall into any of those categories and it is just a personal opinion. I like C, I guess I am a small creative thinker.

Not in this context, C means the last choice.

Re: High Achievers, Gifted Learners, or Creative Thinkers

The exercises do not apply here. I meant the last choice, "Creative Thinker,"

Re: High Achievers, Gifted Learners, or Creative Thinkers

The main reason I knew I would do science even before knowing anything was my belief that science is for intellectuals and humanities for softies (I was young...).

It's stupid that I used to think this for them, but softies are people who have less of an intellectual capability.

It is common among intellectuals to develop big heads.

Bobbym is definitely in the last category. I started in the first category but wanted to be in the last!
