That's fascinating!That is part of the WISC tests. I liked the block test. I did one six years ago (age 50) and remembered liking it at 6yo. (I went to some secluded test site, too, but I don't recall the details.)
Holy crap, really?!?Gifted + Autistic = Twice Exceptional [or 2E]. I work with a 2E specialist in another state and she has concluded that autistic IQ scores (gifted or not) are largely underestimated due to being timed.
I'm not sure we are talking about the same test, so don't know what you are referring to here.The specific test I am referring to, though there may be others similar, is a "substitution/translation" test.
Ah yes, crystallized vs. fluid intelligence. I suppose the timing of the tasks is testing your fluid intelligence. Yes, I think that my crystallized intelligence is higher than my fluid intelligence, which is why I do quite well in research or an academic setting where I can rely more on my acquired knowledge and long term memory, but not so well on timed IQ tests."crystal" intelligence, while actively translating you are using "fluid" intelligence, at least when you begin to be able to anticipate words.
Not really sure. I was identified gifted in my childhood, and autistic at 45. Having studied both (as an amateur), there are plenty of shared traits/overlap between them.Any "start here" recommendations?
This is definitely my next study blackhole.Not really sure. I was identified gifted in my childhood, and autistic at 45. Having studied both (as an amateur), there are plenty of shared traits/overlap between them.
I think it stems from similarities between asynchronous development & PDD. (My specialist tells me that there are some gifties who are not asynchronous.)
With 2E, the giftedness can mask the autism, while the autism masks the giftedness.I also was identified gifted somewhere in
I discovered that I was on the spectrum (whoah.. I've gotta re-examine this) at 48, last June.
I don't loathe the word itself, just the common reaction to it.(Snooow-flaaaake..)"Gifted" - I personally loathe that word. It brought me nothing but trouble in life
It is no more isolating than "autistic."
