    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 add an "experience' like this

    and I can't help but think: "what sort of impression do I get when I see this in someone else's experiences?" The jury is still out.

    I don't want to sound "Braggy" Or something

    similar to that, but i've been told by a few people and Mensa alike that my IQ lays in the range of 133-140, i really don't consider myself all that smart and i don't really like to talk about my Intelligence Quotient, but since this is a group specifically made for that one...

    concepts. I've lost a lot of possible friends because of this. My problem is just that I'm always right. Judge me.

    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.

    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?

    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...

    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".
