If you have 75% of the below attributes (and be honest) you are probably a gifted person.

[ ] Are you a good problem solver?
[ ] Can you concentrate for long periods of time?
[ ] Are you a perfectionist?
[ ] Do you persevere with your interests?
[ ] Are you an avid reader?
[ ] Do you have a vivid imagination?
[ ] Do you enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles?
[ ] Often connect seemingly unrelated ideas?
[ ] Do you enjoy paradoxes?
[ ] Do you set high standards for yourself?
[ ] Do you have a good long-term memory?
[ ] Are you deeply compassionate?
[ ] Do you have persistent curiosity?
[ ] Do you have a good sense of humor?
[ ] Are you a keen observer?
[ ] Do you love mathematics?
[ ] Do you need periods of contemplation?
[ ] Do you search for meaning in your life?
[ ] Are you aware of things that others are not?
[ ] Are you fascinated by words?
[ ] Are you highly sensitive?
[ ] Do you have strong moral convictions?
[ ] Do you often feel out-of-sync with others?
[ ] Are you perceptive or insightful?
[ ] Do you often question rules or authority?
[ ] Do you have organized collections?
[ ] Do you thrive on challenge?
[ ] Do you have extraordinary abilities and deficits?
[ ] Do you learn new things rapidly?
[ ] Feel overwhelmed by many interests/abilities?
[ ] Do you have a great deal of energy?
[ ] Often take a stand against injustice?
[ ] Do you feel driven by your creativity?
[ ] Love ideas and ardent discussion?
[ ] Did you have developmentally advanced childhood?
[ ] Have unusual ideas or perceptions?
[ ] Are you a complex person?

Now, before you answer these, be honest.  I've asked people some of these questions and they say "Oh yea, I love to read" and then I ask "What was the last book you read?" and I get an answer from months ago.  If you use "I don't have time to do X but I still love to do X" then the answer is, no, you don't love to do X. You may LIKE to do X but if you "love it" you have time.

So a blond with a half a brain would have at least 75% of these attributes?

As for me, I am not gifted, even if I come close to it but after seeing what Draginol said about some of the answers such as the math one, I don't make the cut.
