The Confusing Life of Being Too Different

Abstract [en]

This article aims not at theorizing or reporting empirical results. It rather endeavours to practically help extremely gifted individuals who have discovered that the world does not necessarily function as expected. This tends to create confusion and self-doubt. Based on solid research, however, suggestions are made on how to possible lead a reasonably happy life in a paradoxical world which is not always so appreciative of intellectual brilliance as one might think. Importantly, in order to cope one first needs to understand why being extremely gifted is not always welcomed. Such a framework is therefore suggested. The empirical research in which reasoning and argumentation are built are listed in the reference list for further self-study.
