“If there is one word that makes creative people different from others, it is the word complexity. Instead of being an individual, they are a multitude.”

That is a quote by Creativity researcher Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi that reflects that it is not always easy to host a kind of overdose of talents: Often one career direction is not a sufficient outlet for one’s creative thrusts. And being basically uncommon may impede the finding of proper peers as a guide or reference for personal maturation.

This complexity of high ability, multitalented and creative people shows up in many ways, such as having – and often being challenged by – many interests and passions.

Dr. Nida H. Garcia, a researcher in Industrial Education Management, considers that the true essence of being multi talented lies not in fame or success but in what multi talented individuals have become because of their talents.  She found by capturing the experiences of a group of multitalented high school students, the Powerful G’s in the life of multitalented students namely: the Greater Self, the Greater Good and the Glorious Divine. These powerful G’s reflect valuable life lessons that can positively influence and direct human actions to deal with the daily challenges of life effectively and to live life meaningfully.
