when i was still in school we had a friend who's well.. not really THAT stupid but a bit lacking in common sense. he made up for it by working twice as hard. it's a classic "hard work, beats talent" scenario coz' he eventually ended up in the school's top 10.


"hard work, beats talent" huh..??
i've been hardworking....yeah im top in the class...but when starts practical, it sucks....

its not the grade that decide he's stupid or smart rite?

i got good grades....but when i face those difficult question or tricky i cant.....



dude when he was in grade 6, he can't even do division properly >_> and fractions are the hardest for him
what he did that turned him into a successful man was how he stopped telling himself that he's stupid and how he actually worked hard on it.

grades are another way to test your IQ. if you can't face difficult questions, that just mean that you're not used to it. so are you telling me you're telling yourself stupid because of that?

Thats just cos you might have reached the capacity to which you brain can think. It doesn't classify as stupidity. You just need to exercise your brain with questions or situations from really easy, and then lightly stepping up the level of "hardness" as you figure out your answers .... Did i confuse you? I'm sorry i suck at simplifying things

So yea...stupidity can be overcome! As my mother says: If there is a will; there is a way! .... Yea i know its annoying and sometimes you think you just can't do it any more, but usually thats just a psychological block restraining you from your full thinking/doing capacity...

Sort of like when you work out and you get to a point thinking "no i cant do this!!!" and then you push yourself a little further, and your muscles rip, and then you enter this stage where you cant feel the pain any more. Well until your body really can't go on...and then you get sore in many places for the next day or two...

Yea main point: If you keep pushing yourself beyond your thinking capacity, your brains going to function better the next time you use it...

ok that sounds really....weird ...And so now, i am going to stop trying to sound smart


yea i get it....
but i think it just depends on one's will rite...like ur mother said...lol

But if i like a subject then i have no trouble with passing with flying colours XD ...a lot of people classify me as "smart", but i'm really not. I lack will and motivation and suck at doing things i dont like

meh.. it's alright. maybe you're just more inclined to the "theory" side. you'll get the practical side balanced out eventually.

i'm more into the practical side. i remember my first few months working at an electrical repair shop.. armed with only ragtag electrical knowhow.. i've broken lots of things, got electrocuted, burned, cut.. not a day went by without my boss screaming: "YOU STUPID S.O.B! GTFO OF MY SHOP!!"

in my case: I remember things better when i'm working. coz' if i fucked up.. consequences are physical.. if it's grounded, i get electrocuted.. if it's shorted, it blows up. and it's usually just a foot away from my face. then my boss will start screaming: "a month has passed and you're still stupid?!"

don't be so harsh on yourself.. you know what mistakes you did. just focus on those.. and try not to think about your dropping grade too much.. it'll make you absent minded and depressed. on the other hand.. it can also be used to motivate you into working harder.

anyway.. just keep smiling. as the old saying goes: "if life gives you lemons, make lemonade"

ever heard that mistakes are actually the main ingredient to be successful?
the more you make mistakes provides better chances for you to learn and not re-do your mistakes.
and the fact that you can type and form words right now shows that you are not stupid. stupid people can't even spell the word dog >_>

so cheer up. stop whining about yourself. if by the time you've decided to give up on everything by labeling yourself stupid, then that's the time when you really can tell yourself you ARE dumb. and a sore loser.

so... don't lose hope? lol i suck at cheering people XD

I hate stupidity. Because of that thought, I sometimes hate myself.
