No. I do not think I'm as smart as others, to be honest.

God, I hope not. Smart ass.....yeah; smart in and of itself......ew, ew, ew, thinking about the ramifications given the varying parameters alone gives me a headache.

Oh what a surprise, twice as many people say they're above average than average or below. Anyone heard of the Dunning–Kruger effect?

It depends on the definition of "smart."

I appear to be gifted with an above average memory, when compared to colleagues in my workplace. I can recall details of meetings, cases, guidance, policies, rules and legal regulations long after my colleagues have forgotten. It makes me appear to be very intelligent as I remember the answer from last time when someone asks the same question, or I know which particular guidance document to point them to.

If you were asking this in terms of emotional intelligence though I would have to describe myself as dumb. I can rarely interpret body language correctly (unless someone is really hamming things up) so I often react oddly to colleagues.

Sometimes though I try not to. I'd prefer to be humble. Usually if you think you're better than other people you will act accordingly and come off as arrogant.

depends. we all have strengths and weaknesses. does my above average iq score mean i'm superior when historically iq tests are not an accurate measure of ones intelligence? is the decision not to click on the link equate higher intellect or simply wisdom? or perhaps the fact i get very little enjoyment in popular things. sure society might like something but i find it dumb entertainment, does that make me superior? over all i would say no, but i do feel on certain subjects i don't connect with certain people.

No, I think we're all pretty equal because we all have spots we shine at and spots we fall short on.

This is such a dumb question, almost EVERYONE thinks they're above average. Just look at the poll results- most of those people are probably wrong. IQ also isn't a good way to measure intelligence since its never been scientifically verified, and many skills we associate with intelligence such as mathematical ability, memory and common sense are independent of IQ so what exactly is it a useful measure of?
