A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.<br />
intelligence comes not only from experience, but in understanding why something is such and fully being able to comprehend something in its entirety. you can pretend to be smart, but when you open your mouth, the truth will show itself, or you can believe you are smart, and become what you believe.
Because you are intelligent enough to know that you are smart
I would be surprised if you can get smarter without believing it so.
Yes! What you lack in ability, you make up for with confidence. Think smart....BE SMART!!!
Provided that the shark doesn't eat you for lunch first.
