My giftedness assessment with Jen clarified so much about myself that had confused me my whole life. First of all, I came to understand my lack of sense of satisfaction with so many things in life. And second, I came to understand how applying my giftedness to self-actualization rather than worldly accomplishments has made me confused about whether I am an underachiever or not really gifted at all. Our discussions helped me to finally see my lack of satisfaction and lack of focus on “worldly accomplishments” in a positive light, as a creative force for me. Now I know what to tell people who accuse me of being too exigent: that my drive for excellence is part of my own self-actualization journey, and it is a positive for me; and those who accuse me of not “accomplishing things”: that my focus is on self-mastery, not mastering external processes, and again, that is positive for me. Thank you so much Jen for the work you do in the world, and the positive impact you’re having on people like me who have struggled to find fitting support for their entire lives!
