    I don't really bother to rank people, I think I can learn something from most people.

One example: The idea of selecting friends, occasionally questioning friendships with people might be seen as being picky, and some could argue that this behaviour is being arrogant.
    I've always thought there's no way I'm arrogant, but if this makes somebody arrogant, then yes I am.

    No, I just understand most things better than others...

    So it appears arrogant when it is not.

    I'd rather call myself realistic.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    When you say "above average in intelligence and all that" do you mean as in IQ ? Makes me think they may have been looking at other areas... above average in abilities? Above average generally, or in specific areas?

    I think that egocentrism applies to all human beings. We are often blind to many of our areas of less ability, or overestimate abilities that do exist. However, egocentrism is a normal stage in child development. As we age egocentrism should at least decrease.

    What does this mean then for individuals who indeed are above average intelligence? This group of individuals is how frequent? Isn't it 20% of the population?

    Some individuals are just naturally more self-conscious in many areas. Are these individuals more intelligent on average than the % of pop. who are overconfident?

    And to answer your original question, yes, I am arrogant.

    If I am very intelligent but believe I am not very intelligent, that makes me dellusional.

    If I am very intelligent and believe I am very intelligent, that makes me arrogant.

    Under these rules, a very intelligent person cannot win.

    I do not understand. Are you making fun of my post? I do not know what you are even trying to say by your second sentence, let alone if it is logically valid or not.

    no, on the contrary, being able to entertain 2 logically opposing things is the mark of an educated mind. I just like 1984 references too much, i suppose....

    here's a more sincere one:

    A photon is a wave.

    A photon is a particle.

    A wave is not a particle.

    Q:What is a photon?

    according to many in academia, feynman solved this dilemma, but there's still a lot of "metaphysical remainders" if you ask me, so it's still worthy of mentioning.

    and as i was trying to point it and am trying to reemphasize with this post is that whether something is logically valid is a meaningless question to ask. a logician can not logically tell you what a photon is. Logic is for philosophers and mathematicians, not metaphysicists or thinkers.
