    Your perspective and communication style are influenced by early wounds that made you feel alienated from others. You have to figure out your own way to make sense of the world and communicate needs and this can make you highly sensitive to those who struggle to communicate or express themselves.

    You can be creative and have a unique perspective on things. This is because in some ways, you have had to teach yourself how to make sense of information around me. You may have had traumatic or unsettling experiences with early schooling or may have struggled greatly to learn to read or express yourself.

    Your caregivers or teachers may have been insufficient to help you develop your intellectual gifts. As a result you may have had to learn to figure things out for yourself.

    Your mindset and communication style are easily influenced by your past wounds though you are typically able to be more empathic and helpful toward others who struggle with learning or reading difficulties.

    You have an unusual style of expressing yourself and may be able to use your intellect to connect seemingly unrelated concepts. This unique perspective sets you apart from others but also helps you win the respect and admirations of others.

    You are seen as a spokesperson and role model for others because of your ability to connect with people from all walks of life.

You are likely to start out life feeling insufficient in some ways related to your intellect or communication style.

    You may go to extremes before you learn to value your unusual problem solving process. Your communication style may seem unusual to some or you may feel compelled to speak or write about topics in an eccentric, shocking or otherwise unconventional way.

    With time and experience, you can come closer to healing your own wounds and finding ways to use your writing and speaking to reach others.
