“The Gifted Way” is a place for the thoughts, opinions and facts of gifted, creative and talented people and their lives.

It is also a path, leading to recognition, acceptance and enjoyment of the state of being a gifted adult.

I am Christopher J. Coulson, a gifted adult who works with other gifted adults.  So the thoughts I put up here are sometimes my personal observations and at other times are more professional reflections. Whatever their source, I hope they contribute to the widespread liberation of daily genius.

In my various roles as psychotherapist, counselor or coach it is my joy to work with gifted, creative and talented individuals. I collaborate with them as they design unique lives for themselves, cultivating their giftedness while minimizing the inevitable abrasions of being gifted in a non-gifted world.

    If referral by my stepdaughter weren’t enough, this photo would have sold me on subscribing. Perfect.

    Interesting, Cheryl, the picture itself encouraged me to explore the site further and subscribe. For whatever reason, the picture IS perfect.
    Thank you Christopher

  3. Dear Christopher,
    Those of us such as yourself who have become voices in the Human Potential Movement know the importance of people recognizing their infinite potential and the greatness of their creativity. You have a very inspirational blog here. I truly hope you know that the plethora of information you have added so far is just wonderful.

    We need more messengers like you, Christopher, who are willing to inspire others to use their creativity and their gifts to bring hope and positivity back to those who have lost sight of it.

    I truly appreciate your willingness to share the beauty of our uniqueness while communicating the importance of oneness, love, harmony, and truth.

    You have a great blog here. Keep it going.

    Yipee! and sorry… Hello Mr. Coulson!
    I am so very very happy to have arrived at your website and blog spot…. hmmm, at the moment, I am not sure what search words I was using when your wonderful website popped-up. ah, these are the moments that thrill me, to find such wonderful, and wonderfully designed, websites!

    I have spent about ten minutes speed reading your words. I will now be left frustrated that it may be a few weeks, until I can return… just an impossible schedule I am in the midst of. I shouldn’t even be taking this time away from my ‘not enough time’ to write this msg… nothing too important, just a whole lot of little things I must get off my ‘to-do list’… and will be recouping from eye surgery (no internet and no tv, but I have found a wonderful ‘puplic supported’ radio station :-)

    Anyway, I will ‘favorite’ you, Mr. Coulson, and I look forward to reading more of your wonderful writings and also what other people write.

    I would like to include in this post… a comment to CARMELLITA: I liked your post very much and when possible, I will check out ‘Human Potential Movement’.

    Lastly with this post, I will share these quotes:

    “Children are not things to be molded, but people to be unfolded!”
    “Inside a seed, is an apple… yet unseen.”

    Happy New Year 2012!

    Hello Christopher,
    I have found this blog to be so helpful, more helpful than any other literature or blog that I have come across! I keep going back to your post about living in a “stupid” world, because I really think you put a lot of truths about human nature in there, and it has helped me to understand why some people behave the way they do. Your post about gifted women was excellent as well. I Have come to suspect that being gifted creates as much of a challenge when looking for a partner as having a learning disability would, perhaps more! I would love to hear your thoughts on that.
