Average Americans Think They Are Smarter Then Average Americans...
Didn't need a study to know this truth... just come to GLP with all the people here who are smarter then all the people here... and if you question my intelligence then you are obviously a shill troll sent by a government agency to discredit my brilliance.

[link to www.nationaljournal.com]

"Forget being smarter than a fifth-grader. Most Americans think they're smarter than everyone else in the country.

Fifty-five percent of Americans think that they are smarter than the average American, according to a new survey by YouGov, a research organization that uses online polling. In other words, as YouGov cleverly points out, the average American thinks that he or she is smarter than the average American.

So, this many smart people must mean that, on the whole, the United States ranks pretty high in intelligence, right?

Not quite. According to the survey, just 44 percent of Americans say that Americans are "averagely intelligent."

The results are not surprising. Western cultures have a habit of inflating their self-worth, past research has shown. The most competent individuals also tend to underestimate their ability, while incompetent people overestimate it."
