What makes you smart?
October 20, 2008 6:54am CST
I think, I am very smart in messing up with a completely perfect scenario and ruin it all. Then, to top that, I never cease to add up to it with my smart moves to cover it up. A total smart mess - that's what I am! What about you guys, what are you smart at?

If you smart at messing up scenarios, then i'm smart at misunderstanding them, opening my extra smart mouth at the wrong times and conveying the wrong things. Now who is the smarter person ? Now there are those times that i don't understand things at all or maybe it's delibrate. Now isn't that smart or would you say that is cheeky ? But jokes apart Mimpi. I believe this quote to be most apt in my case. Be as smart as you can, but remember that it is always better to be wise than to be smart.

Catch 22 indeed. But here is how i would understand it Wise means a higher average outcome and smart means spectacular well in a few. Lets say 80/100 in 8 out of 10 is wise 95/100 in 4 out of 10 is smart A wise person knows what to do in most situations A smart person would know what to do in some situations where others would know little smart people often miss the wisdom that is readily available to everyone. [i]A smart person knows what to say, a wise person knows whether or not to say it [/i] [i]Difference between a smart person and a wise person is that a wise person knows how not to get into situations that a smart person knows how to get out of. [/i] Both have their place, and of course one would like to be both.

hehe i am pretty good at exams and stuff so people tend to think i am smart but i have absolutely no common sense whatsoever, which i think i would be a lot better off with to be honest!! hehe i tend to go the long way round to do things because it makes sense to me but not to anyone with an ounce of common sense!! hehe! i'm pretty good at having people think i'm all sweet and innocent, when actually i'm a bit of a naughty one!!! lol xxx

hmmm...wondering what I'm smart at. Thinking Thinking Thinking I guess I'm not as smart as I think I am....I can't even think of one thing I'm smart at! I got it.....I'm smart at confusing myself and everyone else around me. I'm also smart at fielding verbal traps aimed at me (except at the home front).

I smart at choosing. I have chosen the right wife,right career,right neighborhood for my house,the right school for my daughter,the right bank,the right business partner,the right charted accountant,the right car,the right books,the right Hollywood movies,the right programs in TV,and the right friends like you.

You have not told what all you mess up in your life? And how wo you cover it up, once you have noticed that you have messed up the things. I also messed up the things many a times, but I feel that I should reveal the truth to the other fellow, instead of covering up, sometimes covering up proves counter-productive for me and I get caught in my own game. So I try to be transparent so that I should not feel guilty about coverying up anything.

I ma smart at making me fool most of the times. because I am a smart(as most people think )I end up making a fool out of me, like when I offer an answer and the people would look at me in weird way because they think my answer is not appropriate or something that they don't know. arg! and just like now, I am hurrying up answering and I think I have posted some 2o response and I think I just made a fool out of me, trying to beat the time.
