  • There are at least several different IQ tests, and I think they use different standard deviations; so, I'm either in the second or third standard deviation. Depending on what you mean by "smart", then either yes or no. If it's purely IQ, then yeah; I'm smarter than most people. But there are a lot of different types of intelligences, and the IQ test only measures several of them--and even then, it only measures academic potential, ultimately. It depends on what definition of "smart" you're using, as well.

  • In most areas of life, yes. I might have a lot of academic achievements, but street smarts I lack sometimes. I still have a lot to learn.

  • I had my IQ tested, I am above average but not a genius.

    Lots of people think they know everything and refuse to diminish themselves to "average" which is why Yes is the most popular answer, even though it statistically can't be. Figured that would happen though.

    • People with dyslexia may be very smart and successful in life.

      And smart people don't necessarily become the most successful people in life.

      It's attitude and diligence that win in the end.

    • may be, i wish i was one of those smart dyslexic people who are successful too,
      but your right, its the attitude and diligence win in the end

  • C means above average; or same as A.

    • No. I was just referring to the statistical mean (average). Of course, there will be fluctuations around the mean. But is the value statistically significant? How can you prove that that something is statistically significant? By convention, the social sciences use the 95% confidence intervals (2 standard deviations around the mean) to measure whether the discovery is statistically significant. There is some arbitrariness in statistics, because a person may use a 95% CI and 99% CI and make it easier to reject the null, proving the hypothesis that a person is significantly different from the mean.

  • As the narcissistic I am of course I think I'm smarter than the people around me. Is it true? Probably not.

    • Are you going to university in this autumn term or next autumn term? Or are you going to be a high school senior this autumn term? University, unlike K-12, is not mandatory education. Many high school students who already know what they want to do are highly motivated in university. Unmotivated students who attend university because their parents are wealthy enough to afford the tuition and expect them to attend may not do so well.

  • If I were to compare myself with the entire population, which would include kids and very old people, people with no access to education, etc, I think I have a good shot at being above average. If I were to compare only within my demographic, I am probably very average
