You would be surprised that on first meeting..most people think I am dumb!LOLOthers have to accept you as dumb. not self acceptance.People you know consider you smart . So a difficult idea to sell
Once I went for a medical meeting and the speaker was asking anyone what does LASER stand for.
No one knew so I answered..Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation(I had studied this in 12th standard).
Ok then all doctors turned around to see who answered that..than one male doc who was seeing me for the 1st time told me.
"I did not expect a woman to remember that"..and I told him 'I did not expect a man to forget that"
