You’re quite intelligent!

OK, so you didn’t ace this, but you did an OK job and you should feel good about yourself! You’re what they call an all-rounder. You’re popular, fun to be around, and have enough smarts to get you through life unscathed. People want to be you, and quite frankly we don’t blame them.
