Giftedness, Narcissism & Healing

Contrary to the impression gifted literature can often give of a necessarily wise, inherently “good” and morally sensitive profile, gifted people range all the way from “saints to psychopaths”, and can inhabit various expressions of all the spaces in between throughout a lifetime. Understanding narcissism and narcissistic wounding both at the individual and collective level, and how it interacts with but is distinct from giftedness, is essential for understanding gifted development, including gifted mental and relational health, throughout the lifespan. Jennifer Harvey Sallin explores all this and gives resources for further discovery and recovery in the article below.… Read More

Productivity, Potential, and Cultural Scripts: Making Room for Our Full Gifted Selves

The focus on productivity is important for certain tasks at certain times, but it’s only one part of a holistic expression of giftedness. If we conflate giftedness with productivity, we lose out on many rich aspects of our gifted selves, such as joy, rest, play, unstructured exploration and purposeless creativity. Trauma, culture and internalized ideologies can prime us toward a dysfunctional relationship with productivity, and thus with our understanding of our true gifted potential.
