Not only did your grades lead the teacher to love you especially, but also your pleasant attitude that always made her feel like she was talking to an adult rather than a child. In the past, it helped you get out of a bit of trouble, with even your parents often easily forgiving you for mistakes you made, and even today those who meet you feel often feel they are talking to a person who could do no wrong. In the workplace, you are probably a highly valued employee and perhaps even hold a managerial position. If you don’t however, your manager probably knows how lucky they are to have a good and loyal employee like you.
As a child, you were a prodigy

Even at a young age, you discovered a great talent in a certain field, and perhaps not even one but a few. If you nurtured this talent in your childhood, today you are already a master at it, and if not then it's time to start investing in what you love and do well. While it might be true that fewer people will be aware of tour talent today than in your childhood, you should definitely still let the world see what you're worth!
In your childhood you were hyperactive
Children running
You were always used to being called the Energizer Rabbit, and you always preferred to run from place to place instead of walking like everyone else. You probably still have a lot of energy, but the fact that you were able to sit down for 5 minutes and do this test already means you've overcome this obstacle. Regardless of age, your high energy level has people seeing you as a young person always ready for action.
As a child, you were the class clown
Children making faces
In class, you would talk without raising your hand, and not answer questions, but mainly to make witty, amusing remarks that made your other friends laugh, sometimes even the teacher cracked a smile. Such talent to make people smile doesn't just go away, and it's likely that even today you can make anyone bare some teeth in laughter, either with your wit or with your amusing take on life.
