"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid."

Highly intuitive kids are intuitive learners and thinkers. Their dominant trait of high intuition shapes how they think, learn, and perceive the world.
Having an educational experience that supports this style is key to these kids thriving in healthy ways, staying connected to and grounded in their intuitive intelligence, and becoming the successful future innovators and creative thinkers of their times.
All learners have unique strengths and weaknesses, and a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching doesn't cater to a student's individualism.

Intuitive Learners and Thinkers
Highly intuitive kids are intuitive learners and intuitive-style thinkers.
Most classroom curricula do not take into account intuitive learning styles.
This might lead to boredom in the classroom or engaging in typical intuitive-style thinking, including pondering his own big-picture ideas and making intuitive leaps in thinking to the end of the lesson (or even think they can).
They sometimes find instructive details boring and tedious.
Perhaps this boredom looks like attention deficit disorder (ADD) because the child isn't following the same linear, sequential learning steps as the majority of their classmates and is "off-point" on the given task.
Thoughtful consideration of the child's intuitive learning style can often help sift through this distinction.
If you adjust the environment or challenge the child in ways that are a better fit, the behavioral characteristics of the ADD dissolve.
This could help to separate out the boredom and poor fit issues from authentic neurotransmitter level problems.
In addition, requiring tweens and teens to take a personality assessment test like Myers-Briggs would help educators and school counselors determine each child's primary learner style so they can better meet each child's learning needs.
