I took an IQ test for Mensa a few weeks ago, haven't gotten the results back but it wasn't really challenging. I mean, looking at a set of figures and then drawing a logical conclusion of what the following figure should be, who can't do that?
Anyways, I wouldn't say I was the most intelligent child, though I'd probably fit into the top 5% in my class. I was more of a 'street smart' kid I would say. I knew nobody liked a smart-ass, so I made sure never to show off any skills. Memory has always been my strong side, I could memorize and organize things easier than other kids, at least so it seemed to me. I scored highest in my class in geography and biology, subjects where you need to remember a lot of things. I've always had a strong interest for biology, and even now i can spend hours reading scientific articles on cancer, viruses, how the human brain works, etc etc. Too bad I didn't do well in other subjects in school, or I could have been a great doctor. =/
Each misdirected act of compassion is a waste of magical energy.
