    Apparently people's fear that they will be labelled as thick doesn't go away with age. I still get these problems even when dealing with people in their sixties. It seems that admitting you're not as bright as some people is a big step. It also causes problems if you've been taught to treat people as your equal unless they prove they deserve otherwise.
    I don't see that as much in workplace. People are as complimentary towards smarts as they were in elementary school (Not middle and high) I see that once people grow older they have a better sense of who they are, what they are good at in relation to people around them, and what people around them are better at in comparison to themselves. (More perspective.) I am often pleased with people's insights. That is all my own work experience, though.

    In elementary school I used to be very popular, because I was smart, but when I went to high school I turned extremely impopular, not because I was smart (it was barely noticed and later on my intelligence even faded away), but because I was assertive and rebellious. Assertiveness and rebelliousness weren't tolerated in high school.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    I love smart people. <33333 Always have. That includes when I was a kid. And since I still am in many ways, it's all good. ;D

    Mehh, they said I was ugly in high school, but when I look back at the pictures from that time I was actually kinda pretty.

    Yea, kids are mean. I had a sixth grade picture taken and the teacher left it on the desk. A couple of boys were making fun of it when I went to the classroom. It was devastating. Looking back, it's a very pretty picture. (My fifth, sixth, eighth, and 11th grade pictures are all quite cute. I had a couple of okay senior ones.) I wish I had it and I would post it.

    I used to hate it when very smart kids would latch onto me and try to be my BFF. I always felt like it made me look dorkier. Though, that was kind of mean. I had a korean friend in high school, she was very very smart but didn't have many friends. (Directly from Korea, transferred over.) Looking back she was one of the sweetest kids I knew!! I wish I kept in touch. The brazillian friend on the other hand. She was an ESFP. SUPER FUN! I was her first friend over here, but was easily able to assimilate her with everyone else. SHE was the one who stopped writing. I guess I deserve a taste of my own stupid high school medicine!!

    The nerds just wanted to borrow a little piece of whatever you were doing right socially.

    Yes, the assimilating part is what I was talking about above. I've found that, for some reason, some kids want to be popular, including a lot of unpopular kids. They were just trying to use you to get a foot in the door.

    On the other hand, a lot of the unpopular kids didn't give a shit about popularity, and still don't (e.g., yours truly).

    One advantage of being me is that I actually want to be independant and would hate it to belong. Therefore people usually werent able to make me feel sad about not belonging to some place.

    The sad thing is that I never really belonged to anyone or anything, I mean look at me I am posting in an american online forum, how more far from my home could I be ? Well I'm not sad about this cause I made many friends here and I feel I belong here, if people would hug me more I'd prolly only would back out and run away. Still I think the day when you really belong somewhere 100% is never going to happen and therefore is all belonging you give yourself just a subjective way of seeing things, which can be changed everytime. What gives hope tho and what is important is where the heart belongs; cause people who love you are for real and it is the prime base of belonging overlooked too often by people
