I am an idiot, pretty much the dumbest person on earth.. i am completely incompetent. i returned to college hoping to gain some competence and skill, it's probably not possible for an idiot to become smart. i go to class and i'm uncomfortable with feeling like i'm the only one that knows what i'm doing. i like to have someone who knows just as much or more than i do. The teacher doesn't like to help anyone. i am happy to help everyone around me with my limited knowledge and skills. Still, I'm uncomfortable to apparently be learning the fastest, to be ahead of everyone in terms of skill. i'm not uncomfortable with being overly prepared for class. Yes, my class acquaintances give me dirty looks, but the more prepared i am, the better I can help them. i feel guilty anytime i'm not studying. Other students are behind, my instructor has told me to slow down, so i relaxed slightly. Don't ask me how i have a 4.0 GPA. Honestly, i feel stupid and incompetent. i'm beginning to feel less incompetent, because it seems as though everyone around me knows less than I. The only way I can feel secure is when someone knows more than I do. Why are no such people in any of my classes?

I'm an idiot also - the thing that sets us apart is that we "show up"...

[@64578,fun4us2b] Yes, i'm always showing up. One of the instructors teaches me other things outside the scope of the class, because i stupidly picked an elective that doesn't seem to fit my field of study. 80% of the time, none of the other students in that class show up, they have the software to study at home and are still behind. If I had the software at home I'd be done with the book by now, because the book goes step by step for every lesson.

[@9308,shimmeringrose] I also mean, not only showing up physically, but mentally engaged...

[@64578,fun4us2b] Ahhh.. I do not understand cliches.. another reason why I am stupid. Lol.

why do you sell yourself short? Low self esteem?
Obviously your smart, you have a 4.0
Think better of yourself

[@553271,freefeeling] I am honestly confused about why my classmates don't know more than I do.
freefeeling · 26-30, F
[@9308,shimmeringrose] they're too busy with their electronic devises to pay attention in class. Plus Mommy and daddy are flipping the bill so they don't really care.
You are probably paying out of pocket or just more responsible

[@553271,freefeeling] There are 2 students in class that are a little older than I am and they are the ones I help the most. Half of the rest of the class doesn't show up anymore, maybe they dropped. my study group are the only students that show up as well as one other student (who refuses to join our study sessions). I don't know who is the leader of our study group, but I don't know what they'd do if I didn't show up.
One that has upto 40 years experience isn’t incompeatant, maybe a little slow with the tech but wise and extremely wise in every other scenario mam :)
just means that u tossed it off back then , does mean ur less intelligent 🤓 lol Ul get through it , u have survived up till now havnt u ?? Think about that one

[@346909,Georgimy] I'm glad that being the last person (so terribly late) to learn how to multiply doesn't make me stupid. 🤓
Far from it lol far from it (;

Sounds like you're the teacher....
shimmeringrose · 36-40, F
[@10013,Pirate] Yes, it seems that way too. I'm happy about it, but also disappointed that I have no person who can help ME, especially since I'm certain that I'm the incompetent one. The actual teacher is not good at helping anyone or troubleshooting problems. It's hard to claim to be the most clueless, when everyone else thinks I'm the expert.

[@9308,shimmeringrose] you're funny 😂
