Intellectual giftedness is an intellectual ability significantly higher than average. Gifted children develop asynchronously; their minds are often ahead of their physical growth, and specific cognitive and emotional functions often are at different stages of development within a single person. Gifted individuals form a heterogeneous group. Because gifted children are intellectually ahead of most of their age peers in at least one major subject area, they frequently require gifted education programs to reach their potential and avoid boredom. Gifted individuals experience the world differently and more intensely, resulting in unique social and emotional issues. The concept of giftedness has historically been rife with controversy, some even denying that this group exists. ...more on Wikipedia about "Gifted"

International High IQ Society is an Internet-based organization founded in 2000 by Nathan Haselbauer. The International High IQ Society was founded in the spirit of the urban academies and intellectual salons that first sprang up during the European Enlightenment. These communities of amateur scholars were devoted to the casual pursuit of the arts and sciences, and their members represented the learned professions, merchants, writers, and artisans. After flourishing throughout Europe and North America, many of these communities were displaced by modern research universities and influential government and private sector research foundations. Much was gained from this transformation, but something was lost as well. ...more on Wikipedia about "International High IQ Society"
