I certainly didn't have trouble with schoolwork....I had the opportunity to skip 2 grades.
I don't think my peers liked me. While I was never picked on, I was always naturally assertive and dominant, so I'd sort of will the kids into doing what I requested. Never a physical bully type, it's more that I just assumed control and used my "smart" reputation to do it.
Learning how to chill out and grow a bit of Fe is good for anyone.
