About This Quiz

Ever notice how jealous other people are of you? It's probably because you're a really brainy person who thinks and behaves in a way that they can't understand. Well, it's time to show the world how intelligent you really are today!

When people think of the word "brainy," they might think about someone who is really smart at math, science, history or English. But let's think outside of the box for a moment, because a brainy person is also someone who perceives the world in a different way. They are usually more perceptive of other people, including their actions and the way they think. A brainy person is also aware of what they want in life. They typically have big (and sometimes, seemingly impossible) goals that are quite difficult to achieve. But someone who dreams big will always take the necessary routes to become successful in life. Nothing will stop them, because they know that they will always find a way to think of a solution. But if this doesn't sound like you, don't worry, because you can always take steps to become a more brainy person. For now, though, it's time to take our intelligent quiz to see what you're really like!
