One of the characteristics of giftedness is the ability to think in different ways and at a high level.

One of the biggest secrets is just to use the skills you have to your benefit.  If you think in pictures (or movies) then use those to help you remember what you'd like.  If something is linear and logical, convert it into an image or a diagram that you can remember.  For example, if you want to remember how to spell a word, instead of focusing on the individual letters of the word, consider instead the shape of it.  Make a picture of the word and remember that instead of the linear parts.

You're good at seeing the big picture, so focus on that and then, if you have to, zoom in on the smaller parts!

I'm a visual/spatial learner, but I'm also very good at spelling and grammar.  I use my visual memory to make pictures of how words look.  I don't memorize rules.  I just have a very good visual memory for what I read.  I go on what looks or sounds right to me, and I'm usually (but not always) right, unless a misspelling or mispronunciation is so ubiquitous that I've internalized it without knowing that it's wrong. 

 

Incidentally, I would never have been indentified as a gifted child because my talent is rather lopsided.  I struggled with math terribly until I got a very skilled teacher in 8th grade.  But I was a voracious reader and a very creative writer.  I was also good at art and music.  Looking back, I know I would have done a lot better as a homeschooler.
