I got a 27 too. As I see it --- it means you see the world a bit differently than others. This may create some challenges because some (many, in truth) may not understand your perspective. I know this was true in my teen years. Having a slightly different perspective on the world has been something I have been able to leverage into an advantage and into success. The things the world tells you are "weaknesses" can be strengths in the right context.
