I had a similar experience. I was tested at age six with a very high IQ. I lived in a rural area far from any city, and my school had no special programs for bright kids. Because school was easy for me, I took it for granted. It made me lazy. I couldn’t relate to other kids. Always being the smartest person in the room also bred a certain kind of arrogance. Then, when exposed to other above-average people, I felt intimidated, and would become withdrawn. There’s worse things in life than being smart, but it had its pitfalls.
