[quote:PhenomAnonymous:MV85NjMyNjNfMTUwMjA5MDhfMzRFQTA1QUM=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 863003] Maybe if you see one of the tests, it will jar your memory? I remember everything but of course that is an inherited trait for me. We were also encouraged to read certain books. Do you remember going to the library, scrambling to get THE book before it was checked out? This was an effect that was totally created. I remember checking the same few books out and keeping them over due, just to see the other kids not be able to get them. Books that were encouraged were: A Wrinkle in Time, The Elephant Man (That was my personal favorite to withhold), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and any of the books from the Choose Your Own Adventure Series. [/quote] good call. i did read A Wrinkle In Time, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and as many Choose Your Own Adventure books that I could get. I never read Elephant Man. I do remember going to the library a lot. I vividly remember getting books on UFOs, the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and Beginning French. As far as the tests go, it's worth a shot. throw some tests my way and I'll see if I recognize any of them. I remember doing a lot of logic puzzles and shape puzzles as well as TONS of math and reading tests. The thing is, I don't remember doing any of these with a group of kids or in any special class. I remember the tests and the books and leaving class and talking to a number of adults (teachers and counselors) but no "gifted class". This probably wouldn't even get any attention from me if my mom wouldn't have told me I was in the "Gifted & Talented" Program when I was in school. [/quote]

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?
