Do you think you are smarter than most people?

I feel like im really really lucky to be in graduate school becuase I really dont think im very smart. Im good at opening a book and studying certain topics to get an A on a test, but if you wanted to have a intelligent philosophical conversation with me, you might as well be talking to a toaster because i dont have a clue what you are saying.

  • Yes, I feel like im smarter than most people

  • It depends on the type of intelligence. I think I'm pretty "life-smart", but when it comes to academics, I'm terrible at it, despite scoring extremely high on standardized tests growing up. I'm definitely street smart. If we're talking intellectual discussions, it depends on the topic and my level of interest. I think I'm able to articulate myself well when I know what I'm talking about, but certain topics, once you get to a certain depth level, it feels like a logjam just occured in my brain, and I can't get out of the conversation quickly enough, haha. At the risk of sounding like a complete moron, thinking makes my head hurt. I'm not sure if I might just be weird, maybe someone will understand, but when I REALLY have to concentrate (in a physical sense, imagine trying to thread a needle or a fishing hook), I get almost a nauseous feeling. The same thing happens when I try to concentrate on something academic. Just not built for it. Fortunately, the bar for intelligence seems pretty low, so I definitely feel like I'm on the better side of average in most arenas. But maybe I'm just at Walmart too much for work and it's skewed my view of what the average person is😂😂😂

  • Neah, I'm not a special snowflake and I'm also young. Even though I would be considered smarter than most of my age (hypotetically), I still would be dumber than someone who has lived more and had more time to learn and practice.
    However, I'm told that I'm mature, I don't know how "smart" this is, but it's better than nothing. 💁😂

  • I think that the collective public as a whole may be smarter than me. But I think that no individual person is smarter than I am.

    I hope this makes sense.

  • I'm actually pretty thick. I'm just well spoken and I do my work quickly, so people think I'm smart.

  • no, since intelligence is moot.

    i know people with PhDs who are academically smarter than I am, but i have more life smarts as well as potential academic smarts since i'm on the doctorate path too.

  • Yeah, most real (non online) measures have put me top percentile easily. Maybe they're way off, but not so far off that i'd fall below the median. So I'm smarter than 'most people'. I'm not smarter than everyone. And being smart doesn't mean i know everything. There are plenty of topics i know -nothing- about.

  • I know I'm smart, but I'm a bad student.
    I retain almost anything I choose to, and I'm good at having information on tab.

    But, I have to reaaaallly motivate myself to try. Haha
