I Am Intelligent But Airheaded

    Tests

    I was tested several times because I didn't fit. I was found very intelligent. And I'm clever for several things as languages or sciences. Yet, I'm so goofy, so distracted that I look like an idiot. I'm not very easy in the crowd and with talking to people I don't know, so I pass...

    The Big Bang Theory

    I am not where I would like to be intellectually. On the inside as I watch myself on a day to day basis and analyze my decisions, I shake my head. It seems as though I fail to comprehend many things that I feel I should know. I read a quote once that said “in your teens you...

    Perfect Title For Me..

    If there's one way I could describe myself, it would certainly be intelligent but airheaded. I'm not a genius, but I do have smarts, but apparently they are mostly only booksmarts, because I did really well in school and I always score well on tests, including IQ tests. But when...

    I Am a Deep Thinker, But Also a Scatterbrain

    i think of deep subjects all the time.  i don't like mundane everyday, run of the mill topics.  i contemplate life and living, death and dying, everything in between and then some.  i'm beginning to embrace philosophy and art and all those noble pursuits more than...

    "street Smarts"?

    I am intelligent, no doubt about that.  I have a 3.8 GPA and a full ride scholarship to the university.  Unfortunately, I am lacking in the common sense area.  It's funny how that happens, right?  I got so tired of people making fun of me for...

    Some Of These Could Describe Me Perfectly

    I’m a space cadet – I’ve never been much in tune with my external environment. I guess some people interpret that as having nothing going on upstairs, but it’s actually the opposite...there’s so much going on in my head that adding much else to...

    I Am A Fraud

    Since as long as I can remember, people have been telling me that I am smart, intelligent, and so on. You would think that this is great. I mean people respect you, they value your opinion, and at least you are not living the life of a failure. Yet, still on the...

    Space Cadet..

    I'm almost always completely spaced out.  My mind is constantly off in another world, I get preoccupied with random thoughts, I can't think straight at times, and I definitely can't focus on pretty much anything that I'm supposed to be doing.  Once I percieve something...

    Smart Guys Are Dumb Sometimes

    I literally possess a genius level IQ. Lest this be misconstrued as bragging, let me point out that it's only a few points above that line. So yes, I can legitimately lay claim to the "g" word, but I can also do some outright dumb things. Car keys? Don't give them to me. They...

    People Underestimate Me.

    I've always had this problem of people always underestimating me because of my "airheaded" moments. I'm that type of person who didn't do well in high school because I didn't try whatsoever, but I somehow got into a great school because of my essay, and I am now doing very well...

    I Am In Fact A Fecking Idiot

    I certainly like to think I am intelligent. I'm no genius, but intelligent. I am fairly certain this is debatable to those around me. The vast majority of the things that come out of my mouth are, well, pretty stupid, the vast majority of the time. I've been known to do equally...

    It's Not That I'm Ignorant

    I've always been smart.  I have never tried very hard in school but somehow have always managed to pull off A's, even now in college, and graduated high school with honors.  However, I'm a total ditz.  My head is always in the clouds and so I am not very observant...

    I get straight A's in AP classes (okay, so maybe an A- in Trig at the moment, but seriously, it's still an A) and all my friends think I'm extremely smart, and I know for a fact I am. I comprehend things faster than most people and take new information in like a vaccuum (except I...
