[quote:ArmchairObserver:MV85NjMyNjNfMzQ0NTI0OTFfRjNDNkNGNTY=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 19011623:MV85NjMyNjNfMzQ0NDkwNzZfMUU0OTcxMTY=] Every single person other than one I can remember was in our program is a college professor. The other is a librarian. Sounds like your group was given a little more. ;). There was something in the Gatto book about a select group being chosen to keep this system going. Everyone is given the dots, but not taught to connect them. This select group is given the dots and told specifically how to connect them. [/quote] Possibly because my specific group doesn't match the college professor profile by a longshot. I was listing the types of jobs for all the gifted I know, which spans multiple states and decades. Restricting it down to just who was in TAG with me eliminates the tech jobs and pharmacist. In this group, it'd be manager at a major corp, exec at a major corp (financial analyst), city planner, accountant at another major corp, detective (forgot one lol), and teacher. I'd list the major corps but that'd be awfully narrowing. I will say that when I say major, I do mean MAJOR. I'm the failure in the group but I'm fine with that, lol. :) We all have different measures of success. I just tend to do things that don't earn me a kooshy job somewhere, lol. Still interesting. However, I think that the professions really are going to vary wildly overall and change over time. I don't think it's as clear cut as some being shown the dots and others being shown how to connect the dots. I think professions are probably also going to be influenced by societal need. The youngest group I know are all in high tech except for one pharmacist. That could be skewed though because I met all of them through gaming. [/quote]
Were you ever removed, many times, from your regular class for "testing"?
Were you shown a series of high speed images on a television, not once, but many times?
Was the school psychologist selectively interested in you?
