    How would you say "How clumsy do you think I am?" in Castellano? It's a pretty casual phrase, meant to be said a bit sarcastically to a friend. Thanks in advance!

    More idiomatically: ¿Acaso crees que soy tan patoso?

    Down here, this is the one we would use:
    I'm just adding something really important, zonryza: :)
    Un saludo.

    I agree, this is the one we would use:
    ¿Qué tan torpe crees que soy?

    Equally right could be:
    ¿Qué tan torpe me consideras?

    But something slightly more casual would be: ¿Qué tan torpe me crees?

    Saludos.

    I like this one; it´s funnyish and avoids the Spain-Latin America dilemma. There are other possibilities, but we need to know what "clumsy" refers to, and whether your friend is from Spain or Latin America.

    The most accurate:
    ¿Cuán torpe me crees?


    The most casual and a bit sarcastic or playful, depending on your tone of voice:
    ¿Tan torpe crees que soy?

    AlbertoVidal gave that answer first, in post #2. I had overlooked it.
    I don't much like "Qué tan ...", but it is what Mexicans say. I don't much like "Cómo de torpe me crees", either, so I refrained from suggesting it, but, in the spirit of full disclosure, I should admit that I hear it often.
    The problem with "Cuán .." is that some people, the ones who say "cómo de" o "qué tan", might think you're the sort of supercorrect language geek who spends his time on WordReference forum. ;)

    Jajaja;)

    In Perú I have never heard "Cómo de torpe me crees", but you say "Qué tan ...". "Cuán torpe me crees" is the proper way to speak, altough you could be spot as a WordReference forum user.
