If you trust your brain so much you would have no need to rely on antivirus scanning every 3 months.
While better than not doing anything, your plan is not very smart. Inbetween those 3 months your computer could get infected and crash or prevent you from even installing an antivirus later and scanning your system.
I suggest you install an antivirus program that has low impact on the speed of your computer and forget about it.
