    I'm not sure where you live but there's loads of people in my school like that. They drink, go out to parties every weekend, smoke etc. and still get A's and A*'s... So jealous.

    Good question.

    Intelligent people tend to get less enjoyment out of being sociable than 'ordinary' people. They are often very happy in their own company.

    They also have no interest in being popular.

    It's probably due to the way the brain works and how their worldview is created.
    If a child is raised within a confident setting- say parents are teachers or work in business they tend to be more confident.

    It all depends on how the brain relates to the world and how the worldview is shaped.

    I mean popular within everyone in your year, not just your small group of friends

    Grades aren't a true measure of Intelligence.
    Explain how 14 marks are the difference between A and E on some papers!

    It's a measure of knowledge and application with the ability to handle pressure in a set time.

    a lot of people think that i'm smart yet sociable, it's just that i revise enough that i don't burn out, and balance this with going out with mates and catching up with people.
