So fucking what? Newsflash, kid: life is going to ask way, way more of you than a standardized test aimed at children applying to college. Your intellect is not worth anything if you are incapable of applying it.
There is plenty of people that are "smart but lazy." Guess what? That just means you are overall behind the curve. All the people who scored lower on those standardized tests who have higher GPAs and more extracurriculars are going to get into better schools and do more in life than you through sheer determination and willingness to grind because both of those traits are infinitely more valuable than being able to quickly grasp concepts because a grasped concept is useless if you're a lazy fuck.
I understand you're at the age where you have it all figured out and will rationalize what I just said away. But do yourself a favor and actually consider the argument because it is obviously true.
I never argued any of this. All I was trying to show was that I differ from most of the prison population.
I agree that the scores mean nothing when you can't apply them. I just feel like if I could get my substance abuse problems out of the way I would be well ahead of the very few people I know that went to prison and got clean.
I in no way think I have it "figured out". I'm sorry if my last post came off aggressive though, I realize now you aren't just trying to flame me. Also I'll take what you said in consideration. I was a "bright" kid and was always in gifted programs, but I'm not getting into MENSA any time soon. I read "tweak" and "Scar Tissue" and both authors seemed to feel the need to mention they were gifted children constantly and it gets really old.
