    Hello,
    tell us how intelligent you think you are compared to other people.

    By intelligence I mean a mixture of smartness, wisdom, brainpower and understanding etc.

    Its up to you to define it and chose the answer.

    I forget the exact study and statistics but when using a self reporting method ~80% (I think) reported that they believed themselves to be higher than average in intelligence. My point? Don't expect honest/accurate answers.

    When it comes to tests and knowledge, I guess I'm pretty smart. But when it comes to being responsible for assignments and stuff, I fail. My GPA dropped from a 3.85 to a 3.57 because I didn't do work in a lot of my classes making me fail English, and getting a D (almost F) in Physics. I keep telling myself that I'm going to do better next year, my senior year, but I don't know if I'll live up to that. I'm scared as hell that I'm not going to get into my number one choice university.

    Just average. When you get to college, you will realize that you're just average.

    Sometimes I feel vain for thinking, "I rarely meet someone who is as intelligent as myself" but when I meet the CEO of the company I work for (he is a Neurosurgeon), that's when i am amazed.

    I'm in the top 1% on various scales, statewide and nationwide. I've been in specialized schooling since I was 8. I am "smart".

    But pride comes before the fall so let me add this: Intelligence is overrated. Most of the supposedly intelligent are nothing more than parrots. They know how to "perform", they give the right responses and make the right motions. I believe that many people confuse efficiency with intellect. The person who navigates through college/work/society with ease, is not necessarily smart. They are simply the best performers. The most intelligent person is the one who forgoes the memorization of law books and medical periodicals and instead opts to create. The poet, the painter, the philosopher. These are the intellectuals; those who are inspired to build anew, while the layman continues running the well weathered path to success and mediocrity.

    edit: Those who voted average are probally the smartest people in this thread. [​IMG]

    I may be dumb, but I'm happy. [​IMG] A long time ago, I came in to terms that most people are smarter than me. I'm happy to admit that I have no need or want to be smart.

    So true.
    I used to be at the top of my class but as soon as I got to college I just dropped to the bottom because I thought I was "smart" and could get away with doing no homework.
    Natural intelligence will only get you so far in life. At a certain point its just a question of how hard you're willing to work for what you want.
    A slacker will never be a doctor, no matter how smart he/she is.

    Grades mean nothing in the real world. *flees hard*

    I mean, with that said, I don't find it worth working too hard for these grades which would likely have no impact on my future, apart from doing so badly I can't get my degree. =P

    Also, intelligence covers a lot of topics. I'm well-versed in videogame knowledge, but throw math and science at me and I'll cower in fear.

    the interesting thing about this poll is that it shows that a lot of people who consider them smarter than the rest MUST in fact be less smart than the average.

    so whoever voted "smarter than most" must ask themselves whether thats really true.
