Do you secretly think you're superior to most people around your age? watch

    When I say superior I mean in terms of morals, intelligence, traits, preferences, looks, behaviour etc. Not you actually believing you deserve more than others. Obviously you know you're probably not that unique but secretly you kind of feel like you are.
    Even though you can recognise your own flaws, I feel like it's natural for most people to think they're pretty great because obviously you know yourself more than others and you're using yourself as a benchmark. But then I see a lot of insecure people who put themselves down all the time.
    The only person I've discussed this with is my brother and he feels the same. I know if I asked my mates they'd tell me they don't because they wouldn't want to seem bigheaded but then they're the same kinds of people that apply to oxbridge? So obviously think they're particularly clever and able.

    Sometimes I feel like I'm a decent human being and other times I feel like I'm trash.

    I believe I am superior in terms of mathematical ability.
    Other than that, I am inferior because I can't be social, I can't understand sarcasm, my parents are both refugees and I am a Hadrami jew.
