    I wish I was smarter

    because I always procrastinate. I thought the class I took in college would help but it didn't. Are there any tips on how I could be smarter? I know it is a dumb question but sometimes I feel like I am the only person in the world that is dumb. I also want to know how to make...

    Being Around Honors Students

    I can't help but wish to be smarter because I feel so stupid around these incredibly smart people.  I feel like such a failure.

    Have One of Those Dwelling Minds

    I love to learn about new subjects, but 2 weeks later its gone. I have to keep a copy of everything because I can only remember the basic facts about events or people. Wish I could analyze better situations and think of every possible outcome for something. I try to piece the...

    Thinking Is Difficult

    I wish I was more intelligent. Intelligence pretty much defines how good I am at my particular job. My boss has a PhD in physics, and my immediate colleagues have first class degrees (4.0GPA) from good universities. I got a third (a minimal pass, maybe 2.0GPA?) and I am...

    I'm pretty smart

    objectively, I am very intelligent. But still wish I was smarter. Its just natural to want to be smarter, but you know what? More points of IQ don't help you become a better or happier person. I will attest to the truth of that. Really, I think its more important to work on...

    Smart, Yet Ignorant....

    I am smart, but sometimes I wish that I were smarter. I have really bad communication skills when trying to hold a conversation, or even just small talk, with people & because of this, I come off as stupid to them. Everyone thinks I'm ignorant because I...

    Some Things Would Be Easier

    I hate when people make me feel stupid. I have had many people put me down and try to make me feel like less. I may not be THAT smart but i don't think I am a complete idiot. I was taking a vocabulary test the other day and again i felt ridiculous. The teacher was reading the...

    Have You Ever Failed In School?

    "I wish I was smarter ~ when I was in H.S. I failed Physics with the 'F' and some how I didn't felt bad about it. But that grade did not effect me at all and some how actually helped me in LIFE. We all have failed or not as smart as the nerds that pass us by. Collectively...

    I'm not a genius, ans that's okay.

    I'd say i'm average smarts. I suck at math, but i'm pretty good with everything else. I catch on quick with anything technology/electronics related. I love history and biology. But I wish I was just able to learn quicker in some subjects or be able to work things out quicker...

    I had a beer with a friend of mine a few months ago. Part of the conversation went something like this.... I'll never forget it. My friend looks at the sky and says "you know what?" "What?" I ask "Guys like you and me.... we're screwed..." "How so?" I ask. He takes a swig of his...

    Smart Is Good

    Being smart makes so many of life's tasks easier. Who wouldn't want to be smarter? Unless you're already so smart that the rest of the world doesn't understand you.

    I spent a few hours the other day taking 4 different IQ tests, perhaps because I'm a loser, or perhaps because I got up enough courage to finally verify what I've always believed. I'm not NEARLY as intelligent I everyone thinks I am or I used to think I was. It's been a long...

    I Do..

    I'm among the worst at most of the classes. Usually people who're not good at studying are very good at socializing, so they can always rely on their friends to teach them, or do work for them. Not me. I do have a smarter friend, whom I don't talk to much cause somehow, the...

    I Want To Be Smarter

     I know that I did well in school but the thing is that I have never been that good. I was in resource (special Ed) classes for spelling, math, and grammar. I ended up with a 3.75 GPA after I main streamed myself in to normal classes in high school. To this day I steal feel...
