Don't worry! Just ignore those who are intellectually impaired and destined to become uniquely fortuned individuals on an alternative career path. Those are easily characterised by their unique self-paced cognitive ability. When you live in a large multisystemical residential complex they will be residentially flexible. After you are all gerontologically advanced, when you are an academic they will either be a sanitation engineer or a petroleum transfer technician, or in the worst case scenario, be involuntarily leisured. Those will inevitably be economically marginalised.
Aren't thesauruses fun?


Same thing happened to me through school. All I can say - DON'T change who you are to try to make things better for yourself - there's no point, it's a sad and futile exercise. Be who you are and do you best to ignore those who attack you for being who you are. It is crap, because it does wear away your self-esteem, but just remember you are more intelligent and generally better than the people attacking you. May be arrogant but it gets you through, and to an extent may be true. Things change massively at College, and especially at Uni. Get through school however you can and with as much self-confidence as you can. Things aren't actually as people say - you're prettier, more interesting, funnier and generally much better than you're being told.

It's ironic that there isn't another word for thesaurus.

just be happy in the knowledge that one day.. they will be serving you McDonalds as you go through the driv'thru in a BMW.

If only that wasnt just a fairytale told to high schoolers....

The people who get the REALLY good jobs, are ruthless, cunning and masters of social engineering.

To be fair, it's mostly not. A lot of the people who used to pick on me are either on benefits with 2 kids or working in McDonalds/a factory. Some aren't, admittedly, but those who don't turn their lives around end up at the bottom of the ladder, they really do.

Ok then :yy: Im glad for you was gonna ask why, but i won't


Just ignore them, even though that is hard, maybe soon they will grow out of it

Maybe they are jealous of your intelligence?
Ill tell you why, i didn't like school, infact i hated it made me depressed so i use to skive off, was gona become a plumber or something. Come year 11 i realized i couldn't be arsed to work and that i fancied going to uni, so thats what i did.

This isn't actually true, but if it makes you feel better tell yourself it.

The people you end up working for are the quietly intelligent ones who are very social. They become the Partners, Directors and Managers.


The geeks become the IT support monkeys, Electrical Engineers and Research scientists.
so true. Academics become the scrub monkeys of big business, might not like it but it's true, uni, for me, is about making contacts for later life. If you go to london during the week you'll see, come closing time, the bars & pubs filled to the brim with pissed up directors/managers and all sorts, socialising is key to success.

try not to act like a nerd, don't give the answer unless nobody else will. If it feels awkward enough don't volunteer your answer because people get sick of you if you know everything.

But, don't be stupid or do less work. just conceal it a bit. Keep doing well, its what makes you better than them!

I think the problem is a rep can be hard to shake, just try and be as outgoing as possible and get into the things people at your school (the nice ones) are into. Shared interests are foundations of freindships and its important to have freinds.

I do that, I never participate really or volunteer answers.

Reputation is very hard to shake as you say, but it's made worse if you're not like the others and don't want to change in order to get those friends.

And? What's wrong with being clever?


So it IS jealousy then! Sorry but in life you focus on your own strength's and weaknesses.


What is normal?


Uh-huh? So everything in life is so black and white?


OK, I take it you're jealous of intelligent people then. Why? What harm are they causing you? Tell me, what is the inherent wrong of being intelligent? Claiming it's the "nature" of young people isn't enough.
The problem is not that your intelligent it is that you act more intelligent than you probable are and seem arrogant...i may be wrong but the manner in what you have replied to people seems to suggest this...Not all intelligent people are marginalised so although it might contribute to your problems it dosen't cause them.

I was bullied throughout my time at secondary school for being "bright" and wanting to achieve.

I wasn't a 'swot' so to speak - I did lots of stuff outside school, was on sports teams, involved heavily in music. However, because I did well, I was bullied and to be honest, miserable for a large portion of secondary school. Maybe part of it was jealousy that I appeared to have this all "so easily", but I guess people were blind to the fact that I did study hard out of school too.

As hard as it was, I'm really glad I didn't give up - I continued to work, and this paid off with my GCSE results. Most of the people who had given me stick, left at this point. However, 1 who stayed actually turned round to me during 6th form and apologised for the things he'd said to me - He had suddenly realised that maybe it would have been a good idea to do well at school. He said he realised that I now had the opportunity to persue my career (in medicine) whilst his choices were limited.
I'll never forget him saying that to me.

All I can say is, if you're smart and humble and don't act "smart" all the time, people will like you.

Utter tosh.
It completely depends where you are and the area you live and the type of school and the people there. You can't generalise about this.

Why? What makes someone "likeable"?

Why do young people see everything in black and white terms?
