I always wanted to know what would happen if I were to walk into a test and take it without studying for it.
Would I pass? How much latent knowledge do I have stored in my brain?
Today, I had that experience. I took a quiz on a subject that I have never studied.
Once I got over the euphoria of doing something I'd always dreamed of doing but never done that is....
I wanted to kick myself. At one point, I knew some if not most of the answers to that quiz. How I wished that I had just glanced over my (nonexistent) notes. I also fell for the same trick that I always do; I think that if the question it straightforward, then it's because I misunderstood it. For some reason, I have come to the conclusion that all professors are trying to trick me into guessing the wrong answer. I over analyzed everything and completely choose the wrong answer. In a word: FAILURE.
Next time, I should just go with my gut feeling. It turns out my gut feeling was correct more often than not.
