Not Quite Sure What Qualifies
I've taken a couple online IQ tests and one in my Psychology class in high school and I've scored about 140 on all of them. I'm not sure I trust them that much because average intelligence is supposed to be 100 for my age. I don't feel comfortable thinking that I'm 7/5ths smarter than the average person since I don't really call myself intelligent.
I think I could be intelligent because I have a passion for knowledge. Anything I want to learn, I will pursue it. I am currently in college to be a Mining Engineer and have many things planned when I graduate. It's mostly stuff I want to learn like the piano and Spanish. I enjoy learning skills that I could use even though it might not be directly useful with whatever I want to do with the rest of my life.
I also seem to have natural abilities that, and I didn't know this, but others can't do so easily. My skills at mathematics let me go through Calculus 1 through 3 without needing to take half as many notes as the other classmates. I am also very visual in many dimensions which gave me an edge in Statics, Dynamics, Mechanics of Materials, and Engineering Design.
In spite of all that, I still find myself making very stupid mistakes and wish I was smarter. I like my brain and logical way of thinking, but I more than often feel like the dumbest person in the room. Then there are times I'm confused like when I'm with guys that do better on homeworks and tests and I'm having to explain **** to them. Does that make sense? I think logically I would be considered intelligent, but I'll never be sure.
If not intelligent, I know I am unique. How many people can write a Fourier Series, create poetry, and possess ninja skills? Oh, and I forgot to mention I have ninja skills.
