It's only a turn off if they continuously flaunt it. I hate dealing with people who I feel aren't on my intellectual level but I'm much more irritated by people who constantly try to prove me wrong and always have something to say. Obsessed with always being right

It's totally a turn on. Intelligence is great. I like intelligence-- you can have great conversations and the imagination of the person is generally pretty awesome too. It would only be a turn off if they were so smart they were condescending towards me and treated me as an idiot. Even that, however, wouldn't really be the fault of the intelligence but rather just the person's personality.
That being said, for me to like a person doesn't mean they need to be incredibly smart. Average is cool too.
