[quote:Anonymous Coward 586188:MV85NjMyNjNfMTUwMjM0ODZfMUU2OUUxRQ==] [quote:Anonymous Coward 656642] .....By the way, all of my siblings were in GATE as well. Nothing exceptional about my parents. My mother is really good at art and my father is really good with math. Neither really did much with their lives. Do you guys find yourself [b]easily bored with what "normal" people find interesting? I don't watch much tv, unless it's documentary style programs (History Channel, National Geographic, etc)[/b]. My wife hates that. She says that I like "boring tv." I find it very interesting and am constantly looking for new things to learn about online. Here's another question. When you stumble across something that really interests you, [b]do you obsessively research it and try to know EVERYTHING about the subject[/b]? I do. I'll spend days researching info on something that has caught my attention...again...drives my wife nuts! :) What's weird is that I am the youngest sibling, none of my other siblings were in gifted programs. I was thinking of posting the same question about TV as well. Luckily my husband also finds the documentary style programs interesting. I, too, obsessively research a subject on a spur of the moment idea. Now, how many actually have a lot of close friends or do you feel somehow detached, not really close? I know many people who are still friends with people from childhood; my sister makes friends easily and still keeps in contact with people from high school. [/quote] I try to stay in touch with certain friends from the past, but that has turned out to be more of a text message to two people say Merry Christmas or a once per year phone call. I don't have any close friends really. My wife is my best friend and I'm comfortable with that. [/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?
