"are you thinking about hurting yourself or anyone else?". (Some counselors act like the correct answer to "how are you doing?" is "perfect". all other answers are wrong, and the punishment for a wrong answer is 5150.) "How does that make you feel?". (That is ...

That’s not necessarily the case…..though many “gifted” people happen to be neurodivergent. I agree with you. "Gifted" is not yet officially defined specifically enough to have any significant implications per se You can't separate nature versus nurture Merely being great at something, doe...

If you say "ever" and there is one or more times, then the answer is "yes".

If there are zero times, then the answer is "no"
