Re: How smart are you?
I dismiss most people as being as smart as my dog. Not because I'm a pompous asshole, but because REALLY, my dog is just as smart.

Most people don't read. That is the number 1 telltale sign of intelligence. And no ladies, romance novels (female porn) does not count. It's gotta be nonfiction.

Being awake and aware and open minded plays a crucial role also. Two of my friends are doctors, one a surgeon and one a GP. I regard both of them as idiots for the most part because they are clueless about the outside world. Almost anyone can learn crap from a university, but not everyone is blessed with full spectrum awareness and understanding.

I know a few people smarter than myself though and I gladly bow down and pay my respects to them. But like I said, my dog is smarter than 90% of the rest.

Well, upon seeing your thread title, I figured I was not going to be so presumptuous as to rank myself 'according' to my own perceptions of myself'; then I read the body of your comment:

"Think about 100 people in your life.
Parents, friends, co-workers, extended family, teachers, stc.
Rank yourself"


It has to be 90%. I do not know ONE person who makes any effort to find out the why's and how's of the world and systems they 'live' in.

Everyone I know seems to 'just be' content with going about their own business.

A surprising number of them NEVER read newspapers, or even watch news broadcasts, of any kind.

"What do you mean 'stop eating seafood?' Fukushima? What's that? Corexit? What?"

"GMO's?"

"You better stop going to that website. Everyone KNOWS that flouride is essential to good dental health! Oh, man!"

"Where do you get this stuff? The BIBLE specifically states that..."

"Sigh Op? Wha?"


These are just milder examples.

Those that DO have some interest in "being well informed" tend to start bitching and moaning when the news outlets they watch tell them it's time to bitch and moan. It is akin to a 'pavlov's dog' response.

They listen = they believe.

They would NEVER consider trying to research the possibility that what they are hearing could be some degree of propaganda, or, guided acceptance.

This goes for ANY and ALL news outlets. There's no thought to 'read between the lines.' No effort to dig deeper.

====

So, based upon your parameters...at least 90%

GLP rules!!!

Re: How smart are you?
People confuse being smart with having a good memory.

A good memory means you can regurgitate facts, figures, information, stories or theories that other people tell you, without questioning any of it.

A smart person may hear what people are saying, but look to clarify and make up their own minds, without following the opinions and words of others.

Don't get me wrong, there can be a crossover between the two, but more often than not there isn't.
Propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach...

Re: How smart are you?
How egotistical is this thread? You guys are seriously grading your intelligence against another individuals? You think your smarter because you have taken time out of your day to sit around and research? I'll applaud such effort, but when you guys put yourself up on a pedestal for merely realizing deception present on earth, your using the 'I'. With this I present, your nothing but still left in the dark. Cute is it that we think we're better, think we know more, and feel our research has us safely secured and above the 'norm' of society. Only here is the truth that we have been asleep, and someone poked us in attempt to wake us up. We tossed and turned, and the one doing the poking thought we would wake, yet Still we dream.

Did you hand-out the #2 pencils 'cause I didn't get one?

Is this an open book test?
