Can You Hear the Flowers Singing? Issues for Gifted Adults.
Lovecky, Deirdre V.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v64 n9 p572-75 May 1986
Attempts to delineate some of the positive and negative social effects of traits displayed by gifted adults. Five traits (divergency, excitability, sensitivity, perceptivity, and entelechy) seem to produce potential interpersonal and intrapersonal conflict. Unless gifted adults learn to value themselves and find support, identity conflicts and depression may result. (Author/ABB)
