What are some ways to increase my intelligence? I have always been treated like I am stupid. I am a socially awkward girl who has no friends and I am not smart either. I don’t fit in the category of being pretty or smart. I can’t identify myself as a nerd nor can I fit in with social butterflies. From a young age I have struggled with the English language. In the 2nd grade I was put in ESOL, even though I was born in America. I was the only American in that class. I was subsequently put in ESOL one more time after I moved back from living out of the U.S. I am not good at anything. I am not good at art and I not the best at math or science. I am not book smart nor am I street smart. I can’t get around socially either. So I have no idea how I can improve myself? I have always wanted to become smarter, but I have no idea how or where to start?

In the beginning of February, I moved to Michigan with my mom and siblings to get away from my abusive dad. My mom has put up with his abuse for 27 years and I have for from a young age. So I am currently in Michigan, I had to drop out of college (a community college in Virginia) and move here. I am going to go back to college in the summer. But I have nothing to do till then. I still am trying to get a job. I have nothing to do till then. The anxiety and depression is killing me. I can’t really ask for assignments as I am not in school. I took acting classes in 8th grade I did really bad. I took a public speaking class last semester in college, I can say I have improved but by not much. The teacher belittled me.
First step Is planning out your goal. You want an attainable and small goal to start with. Maybe you could try and get an extra credit assignment from each teacher by the end of the month and complete it.
You don’t want to get discouraged or put yourself down. As I’m reading, you’re making lots of negative comments about yourself. You want to constantly find yourself repeating positive comments about yourself like, “ I’m hard working” or “I’m good at math” The more you say it the more your mind believes it.
Try to get help from any peers like family or friends if you find yourself confused in anything. Being socially awkward is normal. You need to muster up the courage to sit by someone At lunch and make friends, Smile at people as they walk by, you want to build relationships slowly, and find the right people to be friends with. I hope this helps, good luck!
Intelligence according to who's standards. intelligence requires knowledge, but you have to ask yourself based on what?
The Bible says at 1 Corinthians 8:2 "If anyone thinks he knows something, he does not yet know it as he should know it."
1 Corinthians 1:19 says, "For it is written: “I will make the wisdom of the wise men perish, and the intelligence of the intellectuals I will reject."
Why would the Bible make such a statement, 1 Corinthians 8:1 says, "Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up." A person who puts another person down, or make them feel inferior, is not showing love.
If you can appreciate the point the Bible is making then you are far more intelligent then all those you have been in association with, and who might try to make you feel inferior to them.
The Bible associate gaining knowledge with life. as it say at, John 17:3 "This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ."
I invite you to explore how doing so can benefit you, at jw.org research "What can the Bible teach me"

You are perfect, amazing, and a beautiful soul, just the way you are. You do not, NOT, have to change because of other people's opinions. Whenever you feel like you are alone, remember you are not. Others have gone through this. You, wonderful, amazing YOU can make it through. You do not have to be labeled as smart or pretty. And even the popular people have insecurities. They worry and worry about their five seconds of fame then are dumped aside because they fail to stay trending. Smart people are bullied and labeled as nerds. Anyone "different" is scorned. Well I have news- NOBODY IS " NORMAL". Nobody is exactly the same as any other person. Everyone is unique, beautiful, and wonderful! So knowing that, stand a little taller, head a little higher, as you walk through school halls. And the next time you feel like you need a friend, look around for the people overlooked, the shy kid in the corner of the room, and summon all your courage. Walk up to them. Tell them hello. You might just change two lives- theirs and yours.
