Our Community



Since 2015, we have cultivated a dynamic online community of 900+ gifted adults around the world, where we explore questions and themes of giftedness integration, self-development and self-leadership together. Our members are conscientious, dedicated gifted adults who are actively learning about and applying their giftedness to their lives in creative and purposeful ways. In our community, you can meet other gifted adults who are invested in their personal and professional growth, and who are ready to connect with other equally dedicated and engaged gifted adults.

About our community culture

We meet on Facebook in a moderated secret group (learn more about this here), and group members also connect outside of our Facebook group for one-to-one and group connections. Our community is administrated by our director Jennifer Harvey Sallin. We've designed our community to be a positive, creative, inspiring and edifying space, and we moderate group interactions accordingly. You can ask questions and expect to get lots of helpful insight and feedback from our community members. You can also expect to make friends and find potential collaborators and other resources that will enrich your life even beyond the bounds of our group.

We have extended sub-groups, including a creatives' group, a business builders' group, and a group for highly to profoundly gifted people. These groups are open to our community members, once they've successfully integrated into our main community space. To learn more about how our community is structured and what our community culture is like, read our Frequently Asked Questions.

We also have a gifted mindfulness practice community for women via our Gifted Mindfulness Collective, which you can learn about here.

What our members say

Here are a few highlights of our members' experiences of being in our community, in their own words. You can read their extended feedback and hear from more members on our community testimonials page.

"The sense of community is unlike any other…it feels like home.

I come to InterGifted's peer group for recharging, insight, connection and inspiration. I particularly love the outpouring of genuine love and heartfelt, non-judgmental support and understanding extended to all who are struggling with some of the many difficult challenges associated with giftedness."

"Since joining InterGifted, I’ve discovered that it’s wonderful to connect when people get you, and when you can be your full self with them!

It took me a while to feel comfortable, but once I saw how open everyone is in this community, I felt safe to explore and express all that I’ve been keeping inside for a lifetime. I’m still surprised to see what a different person I’ve become thanks to simple friendships with other gifted people like me!"

"The InterGifted community has been a haven of support for me, and a continual source of inspiration.
Never before in my life was I able to find peers who understood me or encouraged me to keep growing beyond traditional societal expectations."
"If I could sum up my experience in Intergifted in one word, it would be: validation.
Validation of all the struggles I’ve had over the years, of how my gifted mind works and why it didn’t work well in the world I grew up in. That’s allowed me to discover how to create a world in which it does work well! It’s changed everything for me."
"What I really enjoy about InterGifted is the welcoming atmosphere and acceptance of all – internationally!
I love being able to hear similar ideas as well as different perspectives from not only the variety of individuals that are part of this group, but perhaps from the various experiences which can be part of different locations in the world. It feels like home."
"Finding InterGifted...has been an unexpected kind of homecoming.
To be able to talk about my own giftedness openly and without apology has brought about a whole new level of awareness...I feel like, in this secret world, I am invited to grow more fully into all that I am meant to be."
"Intergifted is one of the best things that ever happened to me."

How to know if you're ready to join us

You'll know you are ready to join us if you feel excited to learn more about yourself and your gifted mind amongst gifted peers, and feel ready to apply that knowledge to your personal development and self-leadership process. Conversely, if you feel resistant to or scared about the idea of being gifted, or even feel angry about the concept for any reason, it is not the right time to take this step on your journey. Furthermore, if you are struggling with issues related to social safety, depression, or other overwhelming negative emotions, you may need to work toward feeling safe and in a constructive space before joining us. If that's the case, we recommend seeking a gifted-specific therapist to support you where you are right now.

If you're not sure you're gifted, we suggest you start by reading more about what it is. A good place to begin is our article What is Giftedness?, which also provides links for additional exploration. We also welcome you to schedule a qualitative assessment with us if you'd like to explore your potential giftedness and learn about your unique intelligence profile.
