    I am in an existential crisis.

    .. Life in the whole scheme of logic, the analysis and the prodding of the deeper meanings of life... They're making me feel like whatever I do... There is no point. AND IT IS TRUE. For everyone will die. This justifies the fact that the best thing I can do now is to live life to...

    I'll Admit It!

    I am a relatively intelligent young woman. What's more, I enjoy learning things and am constantly trying to further my understanding of the world around me. And, you know what, I'm not going to apologize for it. Just because I'm good at "connecting the dots" doesn't...

    I'm the dumbest smart guy you'll ever meet,

    or is it the smartest dumb guy? I'm never sure but even though I can draw you maps of a molecule I sometimes can't perform simple tasks like opening doors without injury. Other times I can think if how to add simple numbers but can reprogram and rebuild your computer. Weird?

    It's Not Enough

    When it comes to school, I am smart. Math is simple for me, Science classes bore, I'm better at speaking than my English teacher (who sounds like a hill-billy -_-), and I easily get A's on my essays. I'm not trying to sound boastful or arrogant, I'm just trying to explain myself...

    I think many people think they are intelligent

    but don't know how to look at the facts. They'll take one source and use it for gospel in their arguements rather than searching for all veiw points. An intelligent person will see many facts and then form an opinion rather than see a fact to simply have an opinion.

    I was often accused of being intelligent. My grades in school; grade school through college, were mostly B's. Sometimes I managed A's, other times I got C's. Anyway, people often described me as Smart, highly intelligent, and several other things that translate to intelligent...

    Personally, I believe IQ is not a legitimate

    form of intelligence, its more if a guideline than anything else as there are many forms of intelligences that cannot be measured with by "IQ".

    Not Quite Sure What Qualifies

    I've taken a couple online IQ tests and one in my Psychology class in high school and I've scored about 140 on all of them. I'm not sure I trust them that much because average intelligence is supposed to be 100 for my age. I don't feel comfortable thinking that I'm 7/5ths smarter...

    At Odds

    Sometimes I wish I could just be stupid, so I'd be happy, but I could never betray my thoughts like that. Because, when you're intelligent, you just don't belong. Nobody pays you much attention. They don't bother to see if you're coping, to see if you're doing okay. No, they...

    There is an intelligence that is "book smart," and can repeat lots of information, and then there is an all around intelligence with common sense, I think. I am not book smart, but I "get things" that others have to have explained to them again and again. Also, I find that people...
