9 Little Ways To Seem Smarter Than You Actually Are

I don’t want to downplay how important going to school is. You learn essential skills for the rest of your life that aren’t just about academics – you also learn how to be social, how to be more mature, and how to be more responsible. But, sometimes, people take being “smart” waaaay too seriously, especially in high school. Maybe you don’t like taking advanced courses, or maybe you are in the basic math instead of the upper-level math. These things are totally, 100 percent okay and nobody should ever make you feel bad about it. But let’s face it, people can be mean, and sometimes you feel crappy for not being in one of the “smarter” classes. And that can suck!

Luckily, there are some ways to seem scholarly and smart, without having to study 12 hours a day. I mean, if you want to be super ~studious~ and study that much, feel free! But you can still seem smart without actually being a mini-genius. I know it sounds weird – why would you want to fake being smart? Well, for one, you already ARE smart. You don’t need approval from anyone else and you definitely don’t need anyone to validate you. That being said, it is nice to be seen as smart, since it can help people see you as mature and important. Even if you don’t feel like you know what you’re doing, try to use these tips for seeming smart, and soon you will be “that super-smart and fun girl” everybody is talking about!
