One of the great gifts of being part of a GT sibling group with one markedly more PG member was that I learned very early on that I had intellectual strengths--but that there were others with more. And that that did not remotely affect the value of any one of us. Gifts are so named because they're not merit-based. I earned neither my natural gifts nor my natural weaknesses, so I have no basis for either self-centered pride or self-demeaning shame regarding them. I do, however, have responsibilities to use my gifts wisely, for the benefit of not only myself, but others, as well as to seek assistance from those more gifted in my areas of weakness.

And to reiterate, the value of individuals is in their humanity, not in the specific skills they do or do not possess.
