Has someone said something to you that made you feel smart and good inside?

Like a little bit ago at Gamestop, I was talking to Marcel while I was getting Jirachi and he was like "Wow, you are the first person who knew how to do that."

Yeah, lots of times. Mostly with math and writing though...

Does "your so smart" count? xP 'Cause that is about it.

There's lots of things I hear around school and town that make me feel incredible smart. One thing I remember of that top of my head was a group of guys talking about ice fishing. A girl in the class commented "but there's no fish in the winter."

xD, my friends whenever I pull of a smooth move. ; )

XD, I had a similar experience in Gamestop, too! : D

Does things people say to make you feel stupid have a thread? :P

Lol this is really, really random, but I guess people say things like that to me some times.

Like in math, it's "Wow, since when did you know how to do that"

That's a compliment..right?

I get the "You're so smart!" or "Do you work here?" a lot around zoos/aquariums. So, I guess that makes me feel good. What would really make me feel good about myself is if they remember the information I tell them. Then I did my 'job' right.

I usually don't try to show up (not that it is the only way to be called smart), well, sometimes I receive "you are right".

You mean by how incredibly stupid the things they have said?

There was this guy in my Music Appreciation class last semester, and OMG he just did not get it at all. I'm pretty sure he was dead serious as well.

He had the book and the definition of Romanticist music right in front him. The teacher asked the class "So, what is Romanticist music and what are some of its characteristics?" The guy answered "It's about two people being in love."

I know it sounds like he just being a smartass or trying to be funny, but I assure you he was doing neither.

I wish I could remember the others things that he said, because he said some MUCH stupider things than that...

Last year in my English class, my teacher used to compliment me on how remarkable my writing skills were; that even though I wouldn't really write much in writing assessments, I would earn a high score nonetheless. I'm also praised because I'm good at mathematics, but I think it's just basic stuff everyone should know. :(

And it makes me feel smart when my poetry gets praised, too. And it does earn a lot of adoration pretty often, so I'm proud of that. XD
