That's another issue with this group of adults. Since the very beginning you get considered a kind of genius, you're taught you need to worry about different and "mature" things than anyone usually does. And that's when the word "anyone" comes. You're given the impression you're not "anyone else" anymore, but some kind of special brew it should not interact very often or trust others considered "normal" or "average".
These guys are told to exploit their potential at maximum (so they can be later exploited more than anyone else) while you see the rest of your classmates, familiars and friends having normal rules and expectations from the society. But sooner or later they will find out humans have different qualities when they're born and also develop many others during its life cycle. Only because a genius is a genius, it doesn't mean you won't learn, teamwork or depend on that people considered "average".
I can't say I'm a genius, but I lived a similar case. Someday these kids will wake up and realize while they have an unusual "quality", they also lack many others and frequently physical/social skills are one of them. But it's up to the person itself to realize that because these adults won't let you realize if given the chance.
They were born to make those adult's frustrated dreams become true. These adults (usually parents) are not evil, they only do what they think is better for these kids. Not realizing the damage it will bring later.
