Uncomfortably Gifted

I’m starting this blog to talk about the predicament I’m in and the predicament many gifted people I know are in.

We are burning out. We might burn like flames in high school, when doing everything and going far above what’s expected for one’s age is actually rewarded, then we go to top colleges and either pull through or don’t, but as the societal vice tightens on us, it becomes uncomfortable to be so gifted. We also develop fatigue and autoimmune problems. Could there be a developmental or genetic link? What is wrong with us? Why are we not achieving our potential. No, why are we systematically underperforming compared with people who were less intelligent?

Does society have no use for us? What is happening?

I am going to explore these topics in this blog. If you are interested, please subscribe!
