    I Am Sometimes Unsure Of Myself

    I am intelligent. I have been told that my whole life by my parents, teachers, and other adults. I know I'm intelligent. I have doubts sometimes. I'm afraid of appearing dumb, when I'm not dumb at all. I actually scored second out of 100-200 kids in a high school entrance exam...

    Knowledge Is Only Useful When Applied, Knowing How To Apply It Is Intelligent.

    I feel like the school system has lead many children to waste a lot of possible intelligence because they are not taught how to apply what they have learnt. The facts we read about in text books may be interesting and such, although those are not significant in the real world...

    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?

    A Lump

    My 14 year old grand daughter is enrolled, in a Police program that educates teens on local procedures. She made the local papers, as it shows a picture, of her, wearing dark sunglasses and trying to walk a straight line, in front of a cop (to simulate drunkedness).  It...

    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...

    I Believe There Are Only A Couple Of Types Of Intelligent People

    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...

    So I've Been Told...

    Back in my early childhood, I had many adults claim I had the intelligence of a grown man at 13 years old. The fine folks on the web often mistake me for a middle-aged man, older than what I actually am. I guess this implies intelligence! The funny thing is that I don't see...

    I like to believe I am an intelligent person.

    School might get rough at times but my highly developed brain knows what it can take and what it can't. So staying positive is my way to go and striving for the best is my goal.

    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've always been a very intelligent individual.

    In primary school, I was a candidate to skip a year because I wasn't being challenged. They said that I wouldn't handle it socially, and they were right. High School was a breeze! So much so in fact, that I always left my homework to the last minute and passed. I never studied...

    I consider myself to be intelligent.

    I think of intelligence as something God gave you when you were born. Knowledge is what you learn, and wisdom is knowing how to use your intelligence and knowledge properly. By "properly" I mean for the betterment of those with whom you come into contact.
