4. Here's a fact:
The intellectually gifted population often has trouble socially and psychologically.

I'm a teacher. I took extra certification in gifted ed from UCSD, which included a semester of going through case studies and statistics.

Intellectually "gifted" individuals often suffer from asynchronous development: intellectually advanced, socially/emotionally behind the curve. That, plus the plain fact that they don't fit well socially with people that can't relate to the way they think, put them at risk for lifelong social/emotional problems.

Just as you describe.
