A High IQ, Yet a Dummy.

I have to admit, I was never the best for taking directions from others. Questioning what made them an expert, and why are they lecturing me always bothered me. Was I just plain stupid, or was my mind more focused on being creative and free thinking?


Was a cop smarter than me? Personally I always thought he was a weak personality hiding behind the power of a badge.

Anyway in eight grade we were give some form of IQ test. Grade wise, because of my lack of focus, I was a few up from the bottom. I was shocked when my very high results were above almost every all A grade student.

It was until many years later and becoming what many would consider a success, did I find the answer. Nothing in school and especially in testing, challenged my creativity or sheer determination.

The harder the challenge, the more like I was to accomplish it. I inward laughed at "brain storming" sessions, as I could continuously pop out one idea after another. My wife often said my brain worked 24/7.

Why I did not turn out a genius or a dummy. Using creativity and determination I quickly moved forward. I wonder today what those all "a" students are doing.

You are a mind with a body, not a body with a mind. When you realize that you find little is impossible.
