That makes me laugh every time.
Ufff... When I was little I grew up thinking I was weak and stupid. I used to think it so that whenever I tried to do an intelligence test, I'd quickly give up, and I'd got "retarded" results.
I met some person who taught me to be strong, who taught me not to be afraid, and who opened my eyes to my potential. I don't know if I had always been clever or I got smarter just thinking I could be... Intelligence tests went up from 29 to 117 and then to 135. And then I stopped doing them because they were limiting.
Sometimes you think you are not smart, and maybe you are just shy, scared or afraid. Though... When you think you are not, point is in reality you are not. So I suppose the sentence is right enough.
