  • Truly smart people don't think that way. The more you know the more you realise how much you don't know

  • of course it is. your qualities should be considered a blessing, something that you should harness to contribute positively to the world, not to create divisions. being a narcissist is one of the most self destructive states of mind.

    we all have our talents and make a difference in different ways. someone has what i dont and vice versa. so we all kinda cancel each other out in the end if u think about it.

  • *Cough* human psychology time*

    Did you know that people scoring lower on tests tend to rate their performance HIGHER than what it is, and that people scoring higher on the tests tend to rate their performance LOWER than what it actually is.

    In short; stupid people think they're smarter than what they actually are, and smart people think they're not as smart as they really are.

    Use that to analyze OP the way you want.

  • One word of advice:
    Beware the Dunning Kruger effect.

  • It's as wrong as feeling superior because of body type, looks or anything else that you were ;lucky genetically. Learning is something to take pride in but anything that id - for lack of a better expression - "god given" - is simply luck of the draw

  • I think so. I believe someone should only strive to be better from their old self. That's true success in my opinion.

  • Being smart is relative to things. People are smart in different areas. For example some people are thinkers where others are just good at remembering answers

  • It's not wrong or right but it is confused. 'Better' is a qualifier which only has meaning in the context of a defined standard. You can be a better basketball player but not just 'better'. A 'better human being' requires you to make clear what constitutes 'better' in the context because, unlike basketball, there is no widespread agreement what better means in general with regard to humans.

    So it's not wrong or right, it's gibberish.

  • Of course it is 110% wrong. Just because you are smarter, better looking, have more money, whatever it is... doesn't define who you are and thus it doesn't make you any BETTER than the homeless man on the street. Everyone is human and those are things you are taking for granted. Your smarts? You could lose it all with some kind of disease or accident. Your beauty? You could be disfigured.

  • Incorrect = wrong.
    Correct = right.

    If we don't know if you're smarter, there's no way to know if it's wrong.

    I just outsmarted you and I'm better than all of you.

  • if you were really smart you would't even think that way you would't have time to waste on such trivial thoughts so you prb not as smart as you think you are if you are a person who thinks of such things

  • I have a friend and she has a 97% average. When i have a conversation with her, she is an idiot. She doesn't know how to talk to people properly. One time she told me that she was very smart and that her brain just functions fast than mine does. I told her how rude that was and haven't spoken to her since.
    Its rude and you'll look like a snob if you think your so amazing because your smart.

  • INTJ Here! No, it's not wrong to think like this. Just don't say it or present yourself in an arrogant manner. Humility & Selflessness is your friend. Use your intellect to help not to hurt.

    You're going to get mostly "Yes" answers, because of the limited amount of intellects in the world.
