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?
