Re: How smart are you?
There are two (2) types of smart....

Book smart...

Common sense smart...

Most think if they are "book" smart they know it all...

"Common sense" is taught by others not by books...

I'll take "common sense" over "book" smart any day...

With that being said, I'm in the 90% to 95% range...

Been told after testing that I'm smarter than 98%. Which means I'm smart enough to know how stupid I am. It's useless to compare yourself to others.

Re: How smart are you?
It's interesting how 50% of the responses claimed to be smarter than 90% of the population. If you clicked that, maybe you should re-evaluate your choice.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17049908


LMAO!
cruise

Yeah I clicked 80% based on the people I personally know around me...but not compared to the "big picture".

I guess in that frame of thought I'd prob be in the 60 or 70% range.

Not going to sell myself short. I can be pretty clever and I am a good problem solver. I also understand how IQ tests work and a ton of it is based on the ability to spot patterns...that in and of itself is a skill...does not necessarily establish creative thought and inventiveness.

The IQ tests are broken. They really need to be revised and how they are interpreted and valued revised. They were created in a time to prop up or solidify certain racial and socioeconomic prejudice....fact.

People's "intelligence" should be measured on what they can contribute. I have known some folks that would have been considered dumb as a stump come up with some great ideas to solve a problem...it is all relative.

The problem is, the current measuring system is biased.

I'm smarter than 98% of people.

I scored 132 on the WAIS test.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1492692


"Gifted" is 132 and above.

There is ability and there is knowledge. Your ability to learn is different than what you've learned.

A lot of people here ranking themselves highly because they know so much are smart in what they know.

But true giftedness is a measure of ability.

Anyone can learn a lot. How long it takes to learn, how they learn it, apply it, and retain it is their ability.

I agree.

I have scored very high on every IQ test I have ever taken. Yet I am not the best problem solver. I can tell you why something happens, I can tell you all about history...I always scored very high in the fields of math and science. I can memorize facts, etc etc..

Yet when it comes to creative problem solving...I lack. I believe it is a sign I use my left brain faaaar more often and effeciently than my right.

 Quoting: Little Willow


I did that WAIS test in college when I was 20. Came out gifted.Didn't think much about it then.

But as I've gone through life I've realised how fucking stupid most people are. I mean, seriously thick and dangerous in their smug, clueless idiocy.

I've spent my whole life explaining quite simple things to people. Waiting patiently for people to catch up. Watching them fuck up endlessly despite being cautioned about their moronic actions.

Being gifted is a disability. Average intelligence people are scared of smart people, jealous, defensive or combative as they try and prove that they're smarter than you (at 98%ile how the hell they think they can do that is a mystery).

This is the first time I've ever departed from the looney 'we're all equal' hogwash and ranted about the sea of thickos that smart people are surounded by. I've never been arrogant - so fuck off if you're going to flame me for sounding superior. The fact is that I am in ways that are coveted.Deal with it.

But, shite, I've had it with the mass of morons . Look around you...these folks are responsible for continuing to vote in all the shysters, for the demand for soma TV and media, for just sitting back in drooling stupidity whilst the world is shafted.

Proving the point yet again. My reading comprehension is fine. I think you ought to reread the OP.

If I rate myself against 100 people I know, or the mass of drooling idiots that surround me on all sides, or the billions of morons in the world, I know I am still in the 99th percentile. ONE of my brothers is the only person I know who is smarter than me. ONE of them.

I've met people smarter than me. A few times. I'm smart enough to be able to realize it immediately. Unlike, say, YOU.
