This one is easy! Show them a picture of a naked loli.

If they try to have you arrested because they think it's real, they're definitely not smart.

The only thing I can say is, iq by itself won't tell you how smart a person is, its the measure of data they can store in their brain, the real genuis shown through that, is their way of manipulating that data, and their general thought process that deems them as "smart" or not. Smart people see the world through a different set of eyes, but there are many different highlights of intelligence, as many have said; those who are rational, and process mathematical/scientific data faster, while others are writers, and use abstraction/creativity in the same manner.

A real smart person does not appear smart at first glance.

Also, he is able to simplify complex situations into laymen terms.

you can really tell from the way they talk, act and response to other people.

Generally by what they say and what their view of things are.
If they use logic and think rationally. That sort of stuff.
Basicly, if they spew dumb crap or not.

Not always. Haven't you watched The Big Bang Theory?

By talking to them. There are three parts to intelligence: the ability to compile data, the ability to utilize data, and the ability to predict outcomes from data. The current school system in Canada only tests for the first part of intelligence and people with good grades are rarely the brightest people I speak to. The best way to gauge intelligence is to talk to someone and see if they know what they're talking about and can draw connections between ideas. It has very little to do with the ability to spell or list of state capitals.

But that's just my opinion.

Everybody's SMART ! -- It just depends on how you look at him/her.

For example , Someone with low IQ doesn't mean that he/she is stupid idiot who failed horribly at academics. That person can be outstanding in other fields. People with degrees , masters , PHD are no doubt smart. They are smart in terms of their IQ , academics-wise.

That's just my personal opinion.

I have to agree with this 100%

I know a couple people that have an IQ in the 190-200 range. They sure as hell can tell you anything and everything about what they're studying but they sure don't know how to socialize with other people. They're really good at making awkward social situations. Basically they're very intelligent but not very wise.

Good grades definitely isn't something that proves whether you are smart or not. Motivation can get you pretty far. Maybe even further than sheer intelligence. Now if you combine those two into one person, that person must be a genius. I don't know how to decide if someone is smart or not. It depends on the situation. Like, if you have a normal conversation with someone, it's almost impossible to say if that person is smart or not, but if you have a discussion, you can pretty much figure out the way of that person's thinking.

the way they communicate with others.

It's quite easy to tell who is smart and who isn't.
