If I woke up on morning and I was a genius, I could probably accomplish a lot. Even though, I really wouldn't care if I was a genius or not. There would be a lot of set backs. Like, you would probably start to get on peoples nerves.

If I were a genius I would graduate highschool immediatly. The drawbacks of being a genius would be not having friends, and having people hate me for being so smart.If I were a genius my friends and family would think I was a snooty jerk because of my intellegance. I'll be straight if I was a genius I would tell them how it is.

If I woke up tomorrow and found out that I was a genius the personal goals that I could achieve would be knowing everything that there is to know about everything I wanted to know. The drawbacks to becoming a genius would be that you'd probably be made fun of by some people for being so smart and you wouldn't really be able to say "I learned this" and then be proud of yourself for learning something new, because you would already know it. I don't really know how my friends and family would react to me being a genius. Some may be happy for me and some may be jealous that I would know so much.

If I woke up tomorrow morning and I was a genius I would be very confused and unaware of what was going on. I would quickly get through school so that I could move on with my life and become something that I've always wanted to be. Although my life would change I would have no other choice about what had happened to me. Chances are that I would hate it after a while. My parents would be happy but I'm pretty sure they would want there daughter back. My friends would probably think I'm crazy.

If I were to wake up tomorrow as a genius I probably wouldn't know how to take it. It would take some adjusting to but over time it would get better. If I were a genius I would be able to accomplish my goals more easily and probably faster. Being a genius isn't always a good thing a lot of times people get made fun of and called names because they are smarter than most people, and I wouldn't want that. I think it as a shock to my family and friends as well as myself because its not what were accustomed to.

If i woke up as a genius, i would actually be happy. I would be able to pass math without struggling, and i would know what people were talking about. Also, i could help doctors solve a cure for any illnesses that they can't get. The drawbacks would be that if I was to smart, I could be moved up to a higher grade and wouldn't be able to see any of my friends. People would think I was cheating or that I was a nerd. My friends would probably come to me with all their homework and ask me to do it for them or to help them. and my Family would expect me to do more, and keep pushing me to be better and better then i probably could be.

If I woke up and I was a genius I would be incredibly happy. No more would I have to struggle through math. I would be a straight A student and could be in the highest level classes. With that I would be able to get into any college I want to. The only draw back would be is people would expect a lot out of me. I believe my family would be happy for me, but maybe intimidated. Back to the expecations, they definitely would expect a lot out of me. It's another one of those things that really has pros and cons to it.

If I woke tomorrow and realized that I was a genius I would think that I would have a ready big head ache! I think it would be some kind of world changing event. My parent would be very happy, I think? The down side would be that you might get called a geek or nerd. You might not get a chance to be a normal teacher. My friends be a little freaked out but they already think I'm smart to wouldn't be that big of a deal. It would be kind of nice to know everything but there would be no fun getting to learn new things cause you would already know it. No fun, I'm ok without being a genius!

If I were to wake up tomorrow to find I was a genius I would solve world hunger, cancer and invent the most successful security system in all of the U.S. in an hour. The personal goals I would like to achieve would be to think of a master way to make video games come to life, develop a silencing system to eradicte all noise in a given area. Drawbacks would be alienated by friends and family.

If I woke up and was a genius I would be a little scared. But I would want to do some good with it. I would try to figure out a new way to look at dyslexia and see if there is any way to help them learn better. and of course there would be drawbacks

Well said. I never thought I would agree with this opinion, but I’m starting to view things from a different view. I have to research more on this as it seems very interesting. One thing I don’t understand though is how everything is related together.
