I came across that sentence while watching martin mystery --link of the episode below-- " if you think I am so naive is to be fooled by another one of your tricks!"

At first I was going to ask about "is to be" because I couldn't get the grammar behind it in this sentence but once i crossed out "so naive" it got clear and now I am wondering how could "so naive" fit like that in the middle of the sentence, it sounds really weird to me.


Sentence said between minute 9:42 and 9:48

Edit: I changed "very" to "so" to be more convenient with what said in the video


It's much more likely the piece of dialogue is as follows:

... if you think I am really so naive as to be fooled by another one of your tricks!


... If you think I am so naive that I would be fooled by another one of your tricks!

In fact, I just listened to it and my take is correct.

  • Oh I feel so stupid, I thought it was a new grammatical rule I didn't know about when in reality I couldn't hear the difference between 'as' and 'is'. Thanks alot for answering me! – Manar Mar 19 '19 at 12:13
