I am an alleged genius who is growing up in a suppressive environment that should have strangled my development years ago; please explain how.
(or even geniuses, according to some tests of dubious practical value), however we grew up in a passive aggressive environment that gave rise to many emotional and social problems within us and our family members. According to "Growing Your Child's Intelligence" the following, countering theory is that "Genius indeed cannot "will out" in spite of circumstances, but must be developed, perhaps even created." But if that is true, my siblings and I should not be nearly as capable as we are now. I want to know whether or not this means I am simply mistaken or the theory is faulty.
