	 ! I just took a test. Iʼm quite sure I didnʼt do very well. Although, considering I didnʼt know the majority of the material, I thought I did well. Considering I donʼt try very hard, I think Iʼm doing very well in the majority of my classes. I donʼt see the need for mindless memorization, so I donʼt do it. If a class requires it, I try to use logic to determine the answer. For instance, Iʼll use other question answers and options to eliminate options on the question at hand. It doesnʼt always help, but itʼs all I can do. Unfortunately, my interpretation of various concepts and vocabulary terms learned in some of my classes mislead me. So when I think I know a concept, I may not apply it correctly because I donʼt have the textbook definition that contains an insignificant stipulation or exception or an example given that causes me to get the answer wrong. I donʼt think thatʼs fair, just because I work independently of the norm, the usual way of approaching a problem doesnʼt mean I should be wrong. I donʼt think itʼs about how you arrive at an answer, but that you do. Itʼs important, however, to be able to arrive at it again. And also itʼs important to explain your steps in arriving at an answer, but as for methods and efficiency, I donʼt think they matter very much. Efficiency has always been an important part of school, particularly time efficiency, something Iʼm not good at. I was review my IQ test and saw that I scored in the fifty-fifth percentile for working memory and the seventy-eighth percentile for speed. Thatʼs certainly accurate. And sometimes, people complain that I get extra time on tests, perhaps I can conjure a rebuttal. Iʼm thinking now. Maybe I should say itʼs not fair that you get to study and get the same grade as me even though I donʼt. Perhaps your scored should be deducted by the amount of minutes you spend studying.
