Being gifted is a trait that can be traced back to birth and seen continuing through ones entire life. Gifted individuals can also be noted as individuals who experience the world in a different way which can result in issues in the emotional and social sense.
Their minds are on a different level than their awareness of the environment and their bodies, sometimes there is a mismatch which other people pick up on, due to affect or posture or interpretations.
There are 7 areas of giftedness, so don't think that gifted means smart in everything. In fact, many gifted people have huge discrepancies in test scores between what is in their heads and how they get it out on paper either by writing or speaking.
Leadership is one area of giftedness which requires environmental awareness. But even those leaders who are visionaries and see the big picture often need to be surrounded by others to handle the details.
