What The 16 Personalities Look Like When Gifted

Giftedness is a trait associated with a higher general ability to learn quickly, to hold multiple options in your head at the same time, to see more nuances and depth in objects and sensory experiences, and to effectively manage your emotions and attention. It is also associated with the capacity to formulate accurate models of reality, memory recall, retention, and how easily you can access and systematize information. And all of the 16 personalities can become more gifted by becoming more conscious, and more individuated, and by developing their skills and abilities. Let’s talk about how each of the 16 personalities can become more gifted.
