Prof Joan Freeman talked about Gifted Children Growing Up.

For 35 years, I scientifically compared identified gifted children with carefully matched non-identified gifted and also random children (n=210), each triad in the same school class. There were statistically significant differences between the identified and the non-identified gifted. Over time, the gifted faced distinct problems of e.g. vocational choice and acceleration.  Personality often directed reactions to chance.  I will introduce a few of the sample to show how their lives worked out.
