What good is it? People have said I'm intelligent but in order to function day to day , at a rather basic level , I need quite a lot of support.

This is kind of missing your point, but:

When "people" make remarks about your intelligence (including compliments), it's judgmental and manipulative

Quite frankly I find it provoking


Only clinical psychologists can administer IQ test

Some lil dipshits act like they are so awesome, cool, smart, wise, funny, important, that, you have a moral duty to believe whatever they tell you

There are a lot of those ass holes

They have a lot of authority

They talk too much and too loudly

They act like they have never done anything wrong before in their lives

Everyone is "intelligent" . Means nothing

This described me when I was younger. I am doing my best to make up for it now.
