    dumb? So many people message me and treat me like I have no common sense. For example some guy on here tried to "impress me" by saying he was in the army. He sent a picture and assumed I was retarted and didn't watch movies. He sent me a ******* picture from a movie called "Lone...

    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...

    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...

    Being smart isn't all it cracked up to be.
