A comment from my Asperger's post reads:
You sound like a super-genius. So why is your writing replete with the types of errors you're required to identify and fix on the GMAT? After all, you only missed one question.
Well, I have noted in a prior post that I make a number of grammatical errors in my posts, that even shock me, since I actually know a great deal about grammar. The truth is that, when I write, I pay little attention to what my fingers are typing and I do little editing.
As proof, I have been declared a grammar God.
You are a GRAMMAR GOD!
If your mission in life is not already to
preserve the English tongue, it should be.
Congratulations and thank you!
How grammatically sound are you?

Secondly, I don't know, if I would call myself a super-genious or even a genious. What I do know is that I score extremely well on standardized tests and that I have Asperger's. Interesting enough, I have been called both genious and retarded often in the past. On two occasions separated by years and geography, two different people have told me that I was book smart, but I lacked common sense. Perhaps, related to that, I have often found some ordinarily easy tasks hard, especially those involving repetition, and some hard tasks easy.
I do like to take IQ tests for fun as my prior posts suggests, but I don't believe these tests really measure pure intelligence. Liberal arts majors, who avoid math and science classes, tend to do poorly in IQ tests, regardless of their brilliance. Plus, the accuracy of my performance on these tests are skewed because my hobbies include taking tests in addition to solving puzzles, playing chess, and other mental pursuits.
