LOL, you have a really grandiose view of yourself. Sounds like this is because you are benchmarking vs. less-intelligent people.

In what universe is MO at a mid-tier more intellectually stimulating than IB at GS/JPM/MS? Never mind the work itself, don't you think you would have benefitted from being around those "top-school" kids rather than people like you?

If you couldn't afford to transfer to a target, I get it - but your internship decision was a poor one.

I've felt your way before, sounds like you need to up your peer set. Good luck.

Coming back to this, I realized I was emotionally immature and I learned from my mistakes. You are right that I was acting irrationally and should have made better decisions. Thank you

I'm confused as to why you're pursuing finance, still, after you long since determined it wasn't intellectually stimulating enough for you, and that you want to do something different.

Also not sure why you're here asking for advice when you don't even seem to listen to yourself.

You sound very arrogant. Here is a piece of advice - most people have something to teach you. It may not be in the realm of finance/economics, but you can satiate your desire to learn constantly. My first jobs in high school involved busing tables at a Mexican restaurant and working construction labor on a commercial construction site. There I learned how to speak a new language, essential handyman skills, how the back house of a busy restaurant functions, persistence in the face of exhaustion, and the day-to-day experience of front-line labor in this country. This gives me an edge in private equity today because I understand what it takes on the ground at an operations level to create profit for investors.

Also - most in academia are sheltered critics that have never had to compete. Some of these people may have raw intellectual horsepower, but couldn't hack it in the business world because they lack soft skills, determination, and work ethic. Maybe you should focus hard on developing these facets of character.

Coming back to this, I feel as though I have grown as a person and realize I was being a very irrational, selfish, and ego driven person. I hope I have matured enough to realize this and value those around me, even if they do not have the same interests or level of knowledge in the interests I have. Everyone has their value and intelligence in their own thing that they like.

If you are the smartest guy in the room. Leave that room. In simple terms, always strive to surround yourself with people smarter than you. But in doing so, don't be an arrogant douche. Some people have a much higher view of themselves than what they are in reality. Everyone has something to teach you, you will be incredibly surprised when you open yourself up to that mindset.

Lol true. I do not think I am a super smart guy, I think I am a smart guy because of what is around me. I know that there are smarter people than me all around the world, but I know that with time and going down the path that I am currently going on, I will accumulate more knowledge than others.

See if MIT has any janitorial roles available. Maybe you'll find some unfinished problems on the math department chalk boards stimulating enough for you.
