“Gifted people are like zebras, wonderful and indomitable animals,” said psychologist Jeanne Siaud-Facchin. Psychologists define intelligence as a general mental ability for reasoning and solving problems that integrates a range of specific mental abilities. It can be seen as the mental glue that binds together all these abilities. But what’s it really like being very intelligent?
Having these skills is a gift, but it can give rise to a feeling of inadequacy, of being permanently out of place. This film shows the goals and difficulties faced by gifted people during their life and particularly at school. From a constant feeling of being ‘different,’ to problems relating to their peers or having specific emotional needs that others struggle to understand. We hear from gifted adults and children and examine some of the common misunderstandings and prejudices about intelligence. Does a huge intelligence create an exacerbated sensitivity? Are gifted people more fragile because of their intelligence?”
We also explore the latest neurological research on how the brain and intelligence work. A celebration of Zebras, in all their complexities and diversities.
