High, Exceptional & Profoundly Gifted (HEPG) Group
Giftedness is averaged to make up well less than 5% of the general population, and within that small number, there are subclassifications: mild, moderate, high, exceptional and profound giftedness. The latter three types make up only a very small portion of that less than 5%. The relatively little attention that is given to the experience and cognition of the highly, exceptionally or profoundly gifted is proportionally consistent with the incidence of the phenomena, but the unfortunate result is that the net is cast wide in the existing literature, services, and connection opportunities for gifted people. With various levels and concepts of “giftedness” often grouped together into a one-size-fits-all description, the highly, exceptionally and profoundly gifted are misrepresented in important ways. If you don’t know whether you are highly, exceptionally or profoundly gifted, or simply want to learn more about it, you can read more about it in this article.
We all know that a mildly or moderately gifted person can feel a strong sense of being an “alien” in a group of non-gifted people; so too can a highly, exceptionally or profoundly gifted person feel a strong sense of being an “alien” in a group of mildly or moderately gifted people (the same is true between profoundly and highly gifted too, and so on). Our peer group is aimed to help highly, exceptionally and profoundly gifted people around the world have access to one another for mutual support, co-creativity, and high+ level discussions.
We limit our membership to those who have engaged with us via a giftedness assessment, coaching, course, or our main community. We currently have a one-time entry fee of 150 Swiss Francs for joining our group. If you’d like to explore getting involved with us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
