    Hello dilekdemir,

    To be honest, I don't understand what you want to say.

    Maybe you want to say something like this?
    "In my opinion, you aren't clever."

    Yes, the sentence means that, i think.

    The idea that you are clever is wrong is mine.

    When writing, I had thought so, but I see that when I don't use quotation marks, the meaning of the sentence is blurred. What about now? Is this still incorrect:confused:
