Now you are being modest. You have answered majority of the questions correctly. Frankly, a person who doesn't call you brilliant is an idiot.

Then the world is full of idiots. My parents, my teachers and this one really hurt, my bosses! All, did not call me brilliant. My parents were disappointed in me. My teachers hated me. My bosses terminated me.

I do appreciate you saying that though. You are a nice person.

Firstly, I want to apologize to Ganesh for bringing up irrelevent posts. However, whoever was disappointed in you is unable to comprehend what you are potentially capable of (with all due respect to your parents) and what you already have accomplished. As for me being nice, for this matter I was not. I was simply being honest.
