Your Rainforest Mind is one of my all-time favorite books for gifted adults, and we had the privilege of having author, Paula Prober, join us for a group call to discuss her book! In this episode, we share highlights from the conversation and inspiration for other rainforest minded people!
We explore questions including:
What are novel strategies to deal with the "fried circuits" of over-excitability outside of the standard "good self care?"
How do you approach communicating your excitable nature in groups or conversations where you are afraid you might come off as dominating or "too much."
How do you self-motivate when you don't have external forces pushing you forward?
Feeling the suffering of the world and responsibility to fix it.
How do you deal with the perfectionism that often comes with giftedness?
