I seriously hate when people think I'm some wiz kid and ask me so many questions in class for help. And it's always the questions that I have no clue of and I answer back "Uhh I'm not sure."

And it's not even just at school. Camp, internship, EVERYWHERE.

This might sound like a benefit, but it's really causing people to overestimate what they think I can do vs what I can really do. But one thing that is good for now is that teachers go easy on my assignments.

I still haven't figured why this has been happening and no, it's not because of my race. People always have a hard time guessing my ethnicity. Well it might be part of it.

Anyone else get these moments a lot? How do you deal with them? Would you call this a benefit or disadvantage?

+1 I would only say to not get so carried away with that label on yourself, especially with other people who seem to tell you that. It could potentially lead to arrogance and sometimes being short-sighted, since you may think that you are "smart" and therefore you may end up relying on that more often than you should. Remind yourself that you have plenty to learn and to seek out those opportunities that will enable you to do so.

(If you've ever heard the adage, 'If you are the smartest person in the room, then you are in the wrong room.' )

Asians are so submissive.

Well race is a sticky topic sense, if you are going to get accidentally, as usually, addicted to a drug, you are going to want to get higher for less consumption that is actual consumption of the drug, so you're going to yearn that you are from a lower-class so that you have receding gumlines in the psychological study of dental healthism with race standardization of conservative skein, and then you'd perhaps, if you're liberal, be like"oh, that means I have a better chance of quitting before I get cancer from carbon monoxide than the next human. The gum recession means that the gumline is damaged and therefore the drug will enter your bloodstream from your mouth, so that means, it's either that or your lungs, whichever you think you can monitor more and you can definitely splash natural herbal food products and drink on your gums when you drink and eat after you smoke a drug you accidentally find yourself addicted to, but you can't exactly probe into your lungs complexion.

+1 Theres a saying,
"If you help a man in trouble, he'll remember you"
"The next time he needs help"

I'm going to take a while guess that you don't turn people down much.

Not sure if your post is serious but...
1) Did you read the part "people have a hard time guessing my ethnicity." Not even sure why you get so triggered by asians. Let me guess, maplestory related?
2) No, people don't simply make me do their work. I wouldn't even make this thread if that was the case lol.

Yeah good point. It's hard for me to notice, but I think I sometimes try to present myself as being better than who I really am. Not in a "you're dumber than me" way, but indirectly try show that I can do a lot of things. But luckily my school is very competitive so I see people that do better than me. But that would be bad if I were in a class and I did the best lol.

It's not that people make me do their work, but people just overestimate what I can do. But yes, some people have tried to make me do their work. I only help those that help me equally.

I haven't really thought about that, but that might be a big reason. I have done a lot of community service so I got used to helping someone.

I heard that personality is really bad at work, since coworkers will try to take advantage of you ughh..

@luckysausage: You editted it, I know what I read, and the current is completely different from what was there when I commented.
