Maybe I'm not as smart as I think I am

As I was a kid I had IQ waaaay above the average.

I haven't taken IQ tests since I was 9, so I don't really know if this is still the same or maybe if I had killed my brain cells successfully enough to never reach this score again. Today, drunkenly I took an IQ test online - for entertainment more than anything else - and score meagre 129, just on the border between Above Average and Gifted.

I thought my intelligence was higher than that :) But I will continue to fool myself, as I did it drunkenly and in English, so it must be lower than if I did it sober, rested and in my own language.

Or maybe not.

Maybe I'm not as smart as I think I am.

The statistic says that people regularly overestimate their IQ by at least 10 points.

Maybe, actually, I'm an idiot.

UUUU scary thought. My intelligence is all I have.
