Gotta say that I understand that. Skipped two grades in school and had my BScN at twenty. It took some years if part time study to get my MA in history, and I took a lot of grief for the MA because I already had a career. Screw them, kid. I made a hundred thousand a year for nearly thirty years, not counting iherited money, and when I run into one of the morons who taunted me for using big words it's usually when they are cleaning my pool or delivering my mail.
Jealousy. You're taking psych, so you know the motivation. Dig in, work hard and enjoy having work that matters. When you meet that moron he will be stacking grocies or draining the septic tank at your country place.
