    I Always Was..........

    I easily understand whatever I set my mind to and excel at most activities I participate in. As a person, I am able to take control of my own situations and change my circumstances when I need to,which is why I believe myself to be smart. I am aware of the world around me and my...

    What Defines 'smart'?

    Most people think smart is all A's in school or being able to do something mathematically but I don't think that's smart sorry to all of you that take hours to study but really anyone can do school work. Most people might not find me the brightest because I can't find and graph a...

    May not be the smartest person,

    but when I put my mind to something, it happens. I can analyze a situation and tell you exactly why someone is doing something, and what's causing him/ her to act that way. I can look at all the aspects of a problem and come up with the most efficient and logical answer. I might...

    I Don't Mean to Brag....

    I really am smart. I have been in the AIG program since 2nd grade and I'm a straight A student. I am book smart, life smart, but if you ask me a random fact question I probably won't get it. My strongest subject would probably be math and my weakest would be social studies. I...

    Not Really A Compliment Anymore

    You know I hate it when people tell me I am smart. More and more I hate hearing that I am so super smart. There are really two reasons for this feeling. There are the times when I am told I am smart, then a few minutes later I am asked to fix something. Then there are the...

    Smart and Proud of It

    I am a very intelligent woman and I am not afraid to show it. I attended a "gifted" school growing up so I really didn't have to dumb myself down as alot of school children do to fit in. Even when I transferred to regular classes in High School I didn't hide it and I...

    My Iq Is 124

    So, If I am so smart why do I stay with a man that is so stupid? In more ways than one. Are we so insecure that knowing what we have regardless of whether it is good or bad we stay in a relationship because the unknown is too scary?

    People Who Proclaim "I AM Smart"

    It's been my experience that the people who say "I'm smart" in one form or another, usually aren't.  It seems to derive from hearing "you're a dumbass" frequently.  Maybe it would be more accurate to say they lack a certain amount of wisdom.  The Socratic story about his being...
