What does your DNA tell about you?

Your DNA is the blueprint of life.  It determines everything from how you look to how you behave.  Understanding your genes gives you the ability to make better decisions in life by focusing on specific skill sets developed from your natural talents rather than taking on the ‘one-sized fits all’ approach to personal and childhood developments.

The purpose of our Inborn Talent Gene Test is to provide you with the knowledge you need to thrive in life.  When you are equipped with knowledge detailing your strengths and weaknesses, you know exactly what to work on without going through the painful trial and error.  Thus, the Inborn Talent Gene Test has become a very popular gene test not only for children and teenagers but also adults.

Nurture Your Child

“You cannot be anything you want to be. But you can become more of who you already are.” – Tom Rath

If you are a parent you probably know how hard it is to raise your children in the right direction.  Some may say it’s better to let children figure it out on their own.  However, using that approach, what are the chances of them becoming an elite in life?

By utilizing modern biotechnologies, we can predict your talents and traits to the genetic level, giving you the opportunity to become who you were destined to be and obtain success much earlier in life.

Happier Relationships

Most parents want their children to take on specific positions such as doctors, lawyers, or engineers as these jobs were highly regarded.  However, we are all created unique and are meant to excel in our own ways.

Since everyone is born with his/her own natural gifts and talents, the best thing you could do for your children is to accept them for who they are and develop on their natural strengths.  As a result, they will not only excel in life, but they will also be happier and highly fulfilled.

Thus, the Inborn Talent Gene Test is very much like a roadmap or compass to point your children in the right direction especially when they are confused in life.  As we all know, when children are young they do not have it all figured out, and that’s where the Inborn Talent Gene Test comes into play.

Introducing Inborn Talent Gene Test

The objective of the Inborn Talent Gene Test (ITGT) is to help parents identify their child’s natural talents and aptitudes that may not be obvious at a young age.  Giving your child a head start in proper nurture can maximize those aptitudes to the fullest potential. 

The ITGT covers 46 talents and traits.  The test reports comes with a Career Profiling assessed by our team of psychologists based on one’s unique abilities detected from his/her genetic makeup.  This profile can provide an individual with good educational and career guidance.  Expert Suggestions giving insightful details to help parents effectively nurture and develop their child’s character and talents are also included in the report.  We also provide a post-test consultation upon the receipt of the test report.

Genetic revolution

Dr. Robert Plomin’s Take on Genetics and Education

Nature Vs. Nurture - Which is more important?

BOTH are important! But NATURE first.

"We should understand our genes first, and then see how environmental influences go, so after we milk Nature as much as we can then we go back to Nurture." -James Watson, 2 times Nobel Prize Winner, American Biologist and Geneticist

Parenting No. 1

I’m not sure what my child’s talents are, but I will just use a series of trial and errors to find out.

Talent

High Talent

Environment

No Environment

Development

Hidden Talent

Result:  If nature never meets the right nurture, the genes won’t be switched on,  and there will be no development.  The gift will be repressed and become a hidden talent.

Parenting No. 2

I understand that my child is not good in piano as compared to his peers, but I will give him the best school and the best teacher.

Talent

No Talent

Environment

High Environment

Development

Partial- Outstanding

Result:  If we force our children to do things they are not endowed with, the effort has to be doubled, and there will only be partial development as there is no gene to switch on despite of much hard work.  Your child will  only stay at an ordinary level and that will affect his self confidence.  We want our children to rise above mediocrity.

Parenting No. 3

Knowledge is power. Now that I understand what my child’s innate talents are through the ITGT, I will guide him accordingly.

Talent

High Talent

Environment

High Environment

Development

Child Prodigy

Result:  If you have the nature and given the right nurture, you can become a genius!  It is no longer a question of Nature or Nurture, we should ask a more sophisticated question of whether we have a perfect match of nature AND nurture interaction in our child’s development.

How do you know if your child is gifted?

Children start exhibiting a variety of behaviours from a young age. It is also during this period of time that they require the most attention from parents, so that their potential can be discovered and further developed into real skill sets – which will benefit them later in life.

In fact, a research brief titled “The importance of communication skills in young children” by the University of Kentucky, stated that appropriate stimulation helps all areas of children’s development, while limited stimulation can significantly hinder a child’s development. So, whether your child grows up to be “gifted” may also be partially determined by your interactions with them during their early years.

Here are some tell-tale signs that your child is gifted:

Learning abilities:
Although all children have an innate desire to learn about the world around them, gifted children are able to do this with exceptional ease. Gifted kids have brains like mental sponges, and are able to understand concepts very quickly without much explanation. He or she is able to memorise new information very quickly and accurately.

Academic ability:
Gifted children demonstrate consistently good grades across different subjects and are able to understand all lessons learnt in school and complete assignments without much guidance. They usually have a clear understanding of their own learning processes and may resist methods introduced by their teachers or parents, preferring their own ways of learning. Gifted kids usually are able to tell just how much, and what kind of, studying they need to do to master a topic.

Communication:
Most children are able to form sentences and understand complex language by about the age of two. Gifted kids often reach these milestones earlier as compared to other children, and may even possess a larger vocabulary. Words that gifted children use are more sophisticated than those of other children their age, and they are able to express themselves clearly and argue their points eloquently using longer and more complex sentences. Many gifted children will have already acquired reading skills before entering school.

Curiosity:
Gifted children display a great curiosity about objects, situations, and events, and ask provocative questions. Gifted kids also tend to become highly focused in specific areas of interest and are avid self-learners. When asked questions, they often provide good answers. In fact, gifted children have a deep well of knowledge and seem to know more about the world around them.

Other characteristics
Gifted children also demonstrate a high ability in divergent thinking, and are independent and anti-authoritarian. They tend to need time to think, are highly adaptable to change, and thrive in a supportive environment.

Challenges faced by gifted kids:
Gifted children have relatively low tolerance for boredom, and may struggle in school if not mentally stimulated. Restlessness often leads to behavioral problems, and these children are often labelled as underachievers, or incorrectly diagnosed as “hyperactive”.

Another problem faced by gifted children is that because they often have different interests from their peers, they may often feel alienated in school. Gifted children may also face emotional stress and anxiety as they may have higher expectations from themselves, and may push themselves to attain unrealistic goals.

How do I really know?
It may be confusing at times to know if a certain exhibited behavior is a genuine trait of a gifted child. It is important for parents to identify and recognize any hindrance to your child’s learning process, so that the problems can be resolved with early interventions, before they become irreversible.

Given that every child is unique and special in his own way, it is not an easy task to distinguish a real talent trait and potential learning problem of a child by simply observing and guessing. Guessing is like trial and error. We can’t afford to gamble away our child’s future.

A practical way would be to go for the Inborn Talent Genetic Test. These tests can very accurately help parents to identify their children’s hidden talents – talents that may not be obvious at a young age. It also reveals some personality traits that the child may possess, judging from his or her genetic make-up, and help parents adopt the right and effective child discipline accordingly.
