Intelligence test munich – practice for psychological diagnostics

In our practice, we have specialized in identifying talented children, adolescents and adults using modern psychological test methods and the to analyze the associated possibilities and restrictions extensively.

What is giftedness?

What exactly do you mean by giftedness? By definition, people with an IQ score above 130 are considered gifted. This means that cognitive performance is well above average. Only about 2% of the population meet this requirement. For many people, however, this property is not recognized at the right time or not at all. One of the reasons for this is that, besides the obvious advantages, a gifted talent can often bring with it a lot of impairments and difficulties in adapting. For this reason, it is advisable to carry out an extensive diagnostic clarification, as we offer you in our practice.

The giftedness diagnostics in our practice follow the Munich giftedness model (Heller, 2001), according to which, in addition to the actual giftedness factors (including intelligence, creativity, social skills), other components such as personality traits (including control beliefs, performance motivation, work behavior) are included in the complex construct of giftedness. Exam fears), environmental characteristics (including family and school climate) and performance variables (including school grades, sports performance, social relationships). In our practice, we do not limit ourselves to cognitive abilities such as intelligence, but also examine how the other components of the model are developed. This enables us to determine with our clients which personal and environmental characteristics could be beneficial and hindering the development of a gifted talent and how the personal potential may be better exploited.

Giftedness among children and adolescents

Often a talent is already apparent in early childhood. Highly gifted children can often read, write or solve their first arithmetic problems much earlier than their peers. Some of them are characterized by a remarkable eloquence, a particularly inquisitive approach to their environment or an exuberant creativity. All of these signs indicate a high level of cognitive ability, which should be encouraged as early as possible.

However, a talent cannot always be clearly identified. In many cases, highly gifted children also perform below average in the school environment. This may be due to the fact that they are simply underwhelmed in their daily requirements and therefore do not follow the teaching process with full attention. However, they may also find it difficult to adapt to the structures of everyday school life. Such children need a particularly individual one Promotion and support.

Giftedness in adulthood

Even in adult people, giftedness does not always bring advantages. Because of their exceptional talent, they are often unable to adapt to their professional or social environment to the extent necessary. The challenges of their environment are often in discrepancy with their own needs and development opportunities. They feel underwhelmed or overwhelmed or simply misunderstood by the claims made on them.

In many cases, highly gifted people are not recognized even in adulthood and are promoted accordingly. In the case of a talent, we are happy to help you identify this potential and develop adequate development opportunities.

High sensitivity / high sensitivity

Highly gifted people are often accompanied by a pronounced sensitivity. This is characterized by an extraordinarily precise perception, a more detailed and deeper processing of environmental stimuli than other people and a particularly precise long-term memory. However, this increased responsiveness to stimuli can also lead to restrictions in the everyday life of the person concerned, since not only positive stimuli, but often stress are also perceived as more intense. Highly sensitive people therefore need special attention and support tailored to their individual needs. The phenomenon of "synesthesia" is related to this.

Highly talented diagnostics in our practice

When diagnosing talented students, we always adopt an adaptive approach, which means that we tailor the selection and use of diagnostic tools to the individual talent profile of each individual client. If there are signs of a talent, it usually makes sense to start with a general one intelligence test perform. If this test procedure shows above-average values, these can then be analyzed in more detail using more in-depth survey procedures. In this way, the individual talent profile can be further specified and corresponding funding options can be worked out in more detail.
