What does it feel like to be clever?

This is a follow-up question to What does it feel like to be stupid?.

tynamite's avatar Every time I meet someone new, within the first 3 hours of me talking to them, they say that I'm clever. And no, I don't talk about stretching topics like politics, science or society in those 3 hours. All my friends say I'm clever, and I don't know why!!! I have no idea whether my cleverness is attributed to what I say, think or both.

I find it weird how everyone says I'm clever. I don't feel clever. I feel normal. Why would I feel any different from anyone else? I'm me. Nothing I do is distinctive, I don't think. I feel normal. Do you want to know what else I think? I feel that everyone else is different, as sometimes I'm called that for trivial things. I feel that everyone is different because I don't know why what I do is clever. I want to know what it's like to be normal like other people. Combine that with my conflicting view. I have never felt like I was different in my life. Most people see my intelligence as far removed from the rest of society. For that reason, I want to know what it's like to have normal intelligence.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
