As gifted adults, we tend to experience the world with intensity, emotion and perception that are sometimes difficult for others to handle. And we can see the big picture, but oftentimes others don’t know what we’re talking about.

You can take a free version of this test and get a one-page report that will help you find out what it’s like to be around you. Some information you may know already, but there may be a few eye-openers in there for you as well.
Remember, to make this test most valid, choose one angle to measure yourself from – either from the way you are at home, or work or among your friends – and answer the questions from there.
