Do you think you're smarter than the average person, or dumber?

I personally think I could do almost anything if I exerted the effort, but I prefer to take the path of least resistance and do something I have a bit more talent in, so probably. Plus I was in the on-level classes in high school, and I transferred to honors classes to avoid the horrible people that were in those classes.

I'm just as stupid as everyone else, I'm just a bit more in touch with certain aspects of my stupidity. I think the only people who are even worthy of the title of intelligent are those who refuse to play a part in the mass psychosis and schizophrenia we find ourselves in and have been in for quite sometime, and I'm far from that.

Hmm, I figured most people would say they're smarter than the average person.

Edit: Wow, more people answered no than I thought.

I mean, my corresponding IQ on the SB5 is 131, so I'm technically, with respect to the mentioned intelligence test, classified as "gifted or very advanced..."

well if im gunna bandwagon on using solely IQ, my psychologist gave me a test and measured my overall intelligence to be very high with considerably high scores on many categories. the test lasted for like 4 hours lol, after the first hour, i was already thinking of wanting to go home and get some sleep goddam

if we're gunna go by overall intelligence, i know zilch about how we're supposed to measure that but i think mines would end up slightly above average as a personal guess. ima have to agree with this quote:
"“In my opinion, defining intelligence is much like defining beauty, and I don’t mean that it’s in the eye of the beholder. To illustrate, let’s say that you are the only beholder, and your word is final. Would you be able to choose the 1000 most beautiful women in the country? And if that sounds impossible, consider this: Say you’re now looking at your picks. Could you compare them to each other and say which one is more beautiful? For example, who is more beautiful— Katie Holmes or Angelina Jolie? How about Angelina Jolie or Catherine Zeta-Jones? I think intelligence is like this. So many factors are involved that attempts to measure it are useless. Not that IQ tests are useless. Far from it. Good tests work: They measure a variety of mental abilities, and the best tests do it well. But they don’t measure intelligence itself.”
― Marilyn Vos Savant"

then we have professor kaufman, a researcher of talent pretty much ending up with the same overall idea that IQ means something though there are many more aspects to intelligence

for some more considerations regarding the importance of intelligence that isnt IQ, einstein raced henry poincare to see who could develop the special theory of relativity first and they ended up finishing at around the same time with henry giving einstein the win since he worked harder. henry took an IQ test since they were developed in france where he lived. he scored the IQ of a moron. this stuff is sourced from professor michio kaku who has worked on biographies of historical scientific men.

maybe u heard this a million times but i dont particularly give that much heed to many types of intelligence measurements though since there are plenty of people who score high then accomplish nothing worthy of mention. im much more proud of my personal feats than the notion of my intelligence being high

Academically speaking not really. I only ever excelled at language and mathematical courses. The rest of the scholarly pantheon I refused to worship as it were.

Almost everytime I go out in public I'm struck by how people don't seem to think farther than the length of their own nose and are just acting stupidly in general. So I definitely think that I'm in the upper part of the average for having that broader vision on life. But at the same time maybe it's just that their intelligence is not visible from my point of view, I don't know. But I don't consider myself a genious either and I'm lacking in many other things that "normal" people are easily doing.

Anyway I think that anyone with a healthy level of self-esteem should at least consider him/herself equal to others.

I may have a sixth sense but there are times where you can pick out the ignorant person in the room. It's mostly when it seems like the person is lacking basic information that's obvious to most people. I feel that intelligent people don't learn from their mistakes like regular people do. They sort of see our mistakes as silly and avoidable. They may make mistakes but are less likely too.

I wouldn't say they're entirely sad people. Being faced with the reality of how things are and living in a world where a lot is going on I feel that they might tend to retreat into themselves or into their minds. If an intelligent person is sitting next to a happy-go-lucky oblivious person you're going to notice the difference.

Smarter. I know quite a bit of utterly useless information that most people I've met don't and don't care to know, and for good reasons. I'm certainly far from being an Einstein, however.
