EDIT: How about this...

We'll take idiot to mean someone who is just so fanboyish and annoying and they do things that are so obnoxious that the general consensus is that they are an idiot. So, we know that there are many people like that in the world. Not "stupid" people as in lack of mental capabilities, "stupid as in they just refuse to use their mental capabilities.

So, there is a ratio of people like that, to people who aren't like that among those who don't watch anime and those who do. I'm just asking if that ratio is the same in both categories. Basically, is the anime viewing population a normal population? Or is it different? Do fairly intelligent people make the majority or do they not? Think Statistics class if you've had it.

And no, I know you're going to say this, I DON'T think highly of myself. I wouldn't put myself in that category of obnoxious-ness. That's all.

it kinda hurts to hear that I'm maybe not the only ''idiot'' who watches anime.
and DON'T say that there are just a few of those ''really smart people'' who're watching anime because there are many of them here.

Well, I mean few, not as there's not that many. Just compared to a lot of people who aren't. And I don't think watching anime makes you an idiot (if it does, than I'm a really big idiot), I was asking if there just happen to be more people like that who watch it. If that makes any sense.... :S

I don't. That's why I asked. lol. It appears to be like that, at least on crunchyroll. And also, I don't know that many people who watch anime personally. Just online. I think I have like, 2 friends who watch it. And only 1 of them is obessed like me.

So it may seem that I'm annoyed at all the weirdos on CR who ask the most random questions on forums, but really, it's because I don't know if other anime watchers are as weird as me or anything like me at all. lolol.

since you yourself watches anime do you consider yourself the idiot's or the smart people?

The logical answer would be from you " i am one of the smart ones"

but is that really the case? people who do not accept thing cannot be considered smart, then again you realized there are dumb and smart people.

So you are wonder if
Watch to Don't watch
Is the same as
Idiot to Smart?
I don't think so. The ratio of idiot/smart is more even than watch/don't. Plus it also depends on what you call smart or idiotic. Also, just how weird are you? What is your concept of "normal"? I may think you are about as normal as you can get and somebody else may think you are as weird as can be.

Anyways, I think most people are normal. It's just that watching idiots doing idiotic things is more interesting than watching normal people do normal things.

Terms like "normal" and "weird" or "idiotic" and "smart" are very abstract and vague ideas.

There are dumb asses who watch Anime as there as "intelligent" people.
Unless we get a survey of every fan we can't conclude an answer.

I don't really consider myself smart in the anime world because I just started watching it and have seen the great "masterpieces" or anything. I don't think I'm an idiot. Probably in between. Honestly though. There's lots of Asian anime lovers, and they're way smart.

But as far as intelligence and idiocy, I mean mostly, people who refuse to use complete setences and fanboys/fangirls and such.

Well kind of, more like is the ratio of "smart" to "not smart" in the don't watch category, equal the ratio in the watch category.

And yes, they are all very relative terms.
