This partly explains why I’m bullish on Trump’s odds on PredictIt.
Reason, I think, why gifted children, as adults, often fall short in domains like elected politics is bc of their prudish early lives. They avoid the trials/turbulence of dating during their teenage years (and into their 20s). As a result, they never really acquaint themselves with the base realities of human nature. They lack the reference experiences that cultivate deep social awareness.
Hillary was a stereotypical gifted child. She’ll run a competent campaign, but she’ll never relate to the mob in the visceral way Trump can.
