Personal & social development for gifted adults
Finding out you are gifted is something that happens at one point in time; understanding exactly what that means for you, meeting other people like you, and finding belonging, adequate support, and encouraging social mirroring as a gifted person is a journey of a lifetime. InterGifted started as a social experiment in 2015, inviting gifted adults to gather all around the world in online community and via gifted-specific coaching, mentoring, and workshops. Those of us who created InterGifted and who still work hard to support it every day are all gifted, and we know the joys and challenges of being a gifted / twice-exceptional neurominority in a neuromajority world. We know gifted people need direction and insight from someone who gets how the gifted / twice-exceptional mind works. Learn more about what led Jennifer Harvey Sallin to start InterGifted, and about our organization, in her article Growing a Gifted Community.
Your unique cognitive profile
Getting an IQ score helps you with a number, but it doesn’t tell you how you process thoughts, organize your reality, handle your emotions, or best relate to people. We’ve developed online qualitative assessments based on our holistic model of intelligence, which help you answer the question not only of whether you’re gifted, but if so, how your own unique cognitive profile feels and works best for you. It’s all personalized to help you better understand yourself and take joyful action that nourishes your particular mind construction, with customized recommendations for ongoing support and personal growth. Learn more at our giftedness assessments page.
Giftedness integration, coaching & professional mentoring
We have built a collaborative network of coaches who are themselves gifted / twice-exceptional and who are trained specifically to support gifted adults in their giftedness integration, as well as personal, professional and social development, via online sessions. We also offer mentoring for gifted therapists, coaches and other helping professionals and developing leaders. Learn more about our coaching network and services at our gifted coaching page.
Courses, self-development groups & professional training
We offer online courses, groups and professional training opportunities for gifted adults. Learn more at our courses page. Jennifer Harvey Sallin also offers training courses for therapists and coaches (and other helping professionals) who want to learn to better support their gifted clients.

Belonging is a basic human need for everyone, gifted people included. It allows for the development, expansion and thriving of our social selves. We’ve created an online supportive community and specialized peer groups of over 800 gifted peers around the world. We connect around gifted self-development, social development and thriving in community. Learn more about our community.
InterGifted has partnered with our coaches to start important projects for gifted self-development and social engagement. The Gifted Mindfulness Collective, led by Kelly Pryde, is a community of gifted & twice-exceptional peers committed to a gifted-specific mindfulness practice and mindful personal growth and development. I Heart Earth, led by Jennifer Harvey Sallin, supports us in consciously engaging with the challenges of our times, most notably the climate and ecological emergencies.
Raising awareness about giftedness in adulthood
Many people falsely believe that giftedness magically disappears after childhood, or that if giftedness does exist, it just makes everything easier for the people who are gifted. We know from our own very personal experience that giftedness does follow us to adulthood, and that it doesn’t make everything easier. Our leadership, together with our community, are working hard to raise public awareness that giftedness in adulthood exists, and to make others aware of the specific needs of gifted people. We want to cultivate understanding, respect, support and resources for gifted adults. Learn more and help us spread the word via our blog articles, our videos, our community ebooks and our online presence.
InterGifted was founded and is directed by Jennifer Harvey Sallin, a gifted-specific psychologist, assessor and trainer. She’s supported by a team of gifted professionals who help her lead, manage, grow and support our global community. InterGifted is based in Switzerland, with coaches and community all over the world.
