Are you sure that you fully accept it, though?

Most people I know who are super-smart and are comfortable with that don't keep mentioning how smart they are, nor drop their high IQ into every conversation.

I bring this up because you've been doing a lot of that lately, which gives the impression that you may still be somewhat insecure about it....? (If you've been operating for years under the mistaken belief that you're not smart, I can understand why you might feel like shouting from the rooftops that you are smart! But -- being brutally honest here -- it can be off-putting.)

Yes, it is wonderful and satisfying to be able to appreciate the complexity and beauty of the universe on many levels.

I guess this is what me and my therapist said, get my sh** together, to answer the call.
I wish you continued success in your quest to "get [your] sh** together", to be the best you that you can be, and to change the world for the better.

Regardless of IQ/intelligence, I think that's what a lot of us are working to achieve.
