Rainforest Mind (i.e., Scanner, “Gifted & Talented,” Multipotentialite)

I have a “Rainforest Mind,” a term coined by Paula Prober (the link goes to her Twitter account). People with rainforest minds like to learn about many different things. You might also have heard the term “Gifted and Talented.”

Rainforest minds perceive and think about the world differently. If you’d like to find out more about this trait, please investigate some of these sources below.

  • Even though it was an advertisement for The Discovery Channel, their “Boom De Yada” video sums up my interests nicely.

Gretchen Rubin’s “Four Tendencies”

I happen to be a Questioner. I’ve found this framework to be a useful way to think about my own behavior and the behavior of others. The other three tendencies are upholder, obliger, and rebel. This framework takes into account how each person reacts to expectations, both from within and without.
