So I wondered about the link between the two because I am on of those multi-talented teenagers who just recently unlocked his abilities.
One of which is feeling out vibrations which has made me more of a sensing type of person but I still have my intuition that takes part most of the time...I just "know" things
I'm talented and gifted in the way that I think, strategy takes up most of my mind in this sense I'm being the INTJ mastermind because of the wizard like focus,creativity and curiosity I extend into my projects and the such.
But at the end of the day I'm just a high school grade 11 teenage boy who wants to succeed...
I have these extraordinary abilities of which came out of nowhere around the time of my diagnosis and I'm still using those abilities to prosper ,although recently I had an exceptional spiritual experience in which I met the source of all things otherwise known as God...
To maximize my strength and prowess I need your help, to prosper I need your help, to become successful I need your help...I know I'm fixated allot on myself E4w5 here when I'm depressed Im an E4w3
INTJ,INFJ ,INTP, ENTJ? would probably be the closest of types I can guess myself in since I have High Ni,Fi,Si and moderate Te
Heres the link to my spiritual experience I think you might find it interesting The divine calling
Someone once told me this and I wondered if any of you can give me more advice in this direction
Are you sure your problems stem from being gifted? It seems like there are many other things going on with you and you're attributing them all to giftedness. There are plenty of happy gifted people. My professor got his PhD at age 21 and was so gifted that Princeton wanted to hire him. He leads a happy and fulfilling life. If kids these days think it's hard to get into Princeton as a student, it's astronomically harder to get in as faculty. In my department there's this guy whose IQ is way above mine. I don't know how high it is, really. My IQ (145-155) is too low for me to be able to gauge him, but if you make me guess I'd say 170-190. To give you an illustration, he's in his third year of college and he just turned 19 (I'm 22...). Once, a group of us got together to do a homework problem for Algebraic Number Theory. We looked at it together. Two minutes later, he figured it out, quickly explained it to us, and left. We got bits and pieces of it when he explained it, but not the whole solution. So it took us an additional 30 minutes to figure it out. The time differential between us and him is simply staggering- none of us are dumb people. Another one of my friends, who is miles smarter than me, took a class with him and said: "I finally understand that there's a large and irreparable gulf between my abilities and his". He's one of the kindest person I know and generally lives a pretty happy life.
Without knowing anything about you, from one gifted (INTJ) person to another (and trust me I've struggled with many of the same issues. I'm not sure I'm done struggling even now) here are some tips:
1. Unhinge your personal identity and your sense of self worth from your intellectualism. There's more to life than that, which you'll figure out as you get older. Just from your post alone it's painfully obvious how much of your self esteem rides on this. This is a long and slow process, but this is crucial.
2. Laugh at yourself. Stop taking everything so seriously. Your language is super dramatic. Way too dramatic. Nothing in life is really that important. Don't overfocus. The sooner you realize that, the sooner you'll be able to enjoy the process. When I had to play the piano and my pride was riding on being better than everyone else at the instrument, every minute was like torture. Now I love it. Just an illustrative example.
3. Develop perspective, in other words, seeing outside of yoruself. You know what your post reads like? Someone who is a bit self obsessed. I say this with the best of intentions. Going out into the world, caring for someone else, supporting someone else's goals, hell even just gardening will get you into a much better frame of mind. There's a story about a veteran who had PTSD. He was about to commit suicide and was making plans. Then before he could do it, he rescued an abandoned puppy from the trash heap. Suddenly caring for the puppy took over his mental energy- he decided he couldn't die yet, because the puppy needed him for at least a period of time. But by caring for something else, he overcame his depression and found a new will to live. Right now you're stuck in your own rut. You're navel gazing and it's eating you up. As a 5w4, I can't be alone with my mind for a long period of time. It's fucking depressing. Devise ways to get away from your mind.
I used to think I'm super smart too and that it causes me troubles etc. I sometimes regret majoring in math because I'm by far not the smartest here. But in another sense I'm grateful. I tell people it helped me see how high the sky can go. I had never met people this smart before, in my life. I thought I was lonely at the top. It was humbling, a bit devastating and a relief to know that I'm not at the top, and never will be. Now I no longer feel so special, but because I don't, I feel much freer to enjoy life, because I stop feeling like a colossal failure every time I fail to meet some overly high expectation I've set for myself, knowing there are some heights that are just out of my reach.
(Oh. I just realized you're an Enneagram 4w3. Now that explains your particular fixations. Well, what I said stands. Develop your type. Don't indulge in it.)-Persephone
please I need all the help i can get thanks!
