[quote:AlkaliDesert:MV85NjMyNjNfMzQ5MTMwNTNfNDdENjlCRDE=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1855600:MV85NjMyNjNfMzQ5MDM2NDZfMTc0QTBCMUQ=] Part of the human experience involves a very heightened sense of importance. This is why you have the commonly occurring man made creation myths, and various accounts of personal diregard to one's own well being. Whether a high number of loons on the internet claim to have been 'gifted', is just further proof of this fantasy. Every one of us wants to feel like we are different or special, hence the consumerism blatant in American society in the form of personal identity through attire. It may be true that we have lost our sense of community to one another, but I would blame these thoughts of self importance, before technological advancement or appropriation of. I myself would like to remember a gifted class, although that is not the truth. The internet is a dangerous place because of the things we'd force ourselves to believe. [/quote] Why do you imply people participating in this thread weren't really in gifted programs? These programs included those with IQs (or other factors) in the top 1-5% of the population. In other words, MILLIONS of people in the US. Why is it hard to believe that a handful of these millions might happen to be involved with this thread? I was in a gifted program. It doesn't make me particularly special. Plenty of average to bright people in society function better than I do, and, like I said, all a gifted program means is that I'm in the top few MILLION in this country in intelligence-as-judged-by-IQ-tests. But it's a real part of my past. (In addition, internet forums by nature favor those who enjoy reading and writing, and tend to self-segregate due to subject matter and communication style. Therefore, some forums tend to have a much higher percentage of former-gifted-program participants than the general population.) [/quote]
