Also Called

  • Genius Child
  • Gifted Child
  • Wonder Child/Wunderkind
  • Wakadaisho (若大将)

Capabilities

Child prodigies are often very young. They are mostly gifted with abilities and are able to perform them at the level of a highly trained adult in a very demanding field of endeavor. This is either because of a latent talent within the child or inheritance of the child's family line.

Applications

Associations

Limitations

  • Abusive or neglectful parents may use the child's gifts for their own desires.
  • Major stress placed upon the gifted child could cause apathetic and unstable mindset.
  • One may be seen as unnatural and maybe even a monster.
  • Others may be competitive against the child.
  • Others may not take the child seriously.
  • The child may want an ordinary childhood and to be treated like an ordinary child rather than a genius and/or a hero.
  • Unusual talent and potential does not make up for actual experience.
  • Lack of emotional maturity that comes with age may lead to overconfidence and arrogance among peers.
