    I find this thread different than the beauty thread, because intelligence can be quantified and tested... so it's less about subjective measurements.
    (I mean, if you score higher than average on a standardized test consistently, then you know you're higher than average.)

    Meh.

    I did several online tests; One said 121, one 142, one 127 and I forgot the others, but none said under 120. Also, I'm referred to be a "logician", often teacher, friends and my parents say to me that I would easily get the best notes if I wouldn't so extremely lazy etc.

    Though I don't really trust any of that, I'm still a scientist, so I have to use the most logical conclusion - I'm quite likely above average intelligence.

    i got around 120 from every iq test i have made since 8th grade(including one bit more formal we did in math class in school, mensa online test and many random online tests).

    i made this one test online few years ago that measured other things than just iq. my results were:

    non-verbal deduction, processing multiple things at once, inductive reasoning, visual deduction : 15

    kinda hard to translate these because test was in finnish, but something like creating meaning to verbal speech, understanding meaning, long term memory, intelligent type of curiosity: 15

    memory, something like ability to sort short term memory in thinking process, understanding metaphors, concentration: 14

    verbal deduction, forming concepts, understanding meaning of context: 17

    using memory in math, understanding symbols as metaphors in math, math sort of deduction: 17

    average for these was 10

    I tend to rely on external sources of validation to measure my intelligence because it is important to me to not overestimate. Although, I realize it is supposed to be most psychologically healthy to slightly overestimate.

    Yeah, I would do the same (and rank myself as a 6 too). I haven't personally met many people who've blown me away (in fact, I think a few supposedly intelligent people I've met are kind of glib and more ignorant than I am in many ways), but I have some kind of conception of what "high intelligence" means, and I'm in the middle in relation to it.

    I consider myself smart. If you where to take my computing skills and only use them as a grade its a little over average. But its because I didnt see the point in learning to multiply etc as a kid. I found it boring to be honest. On the other hand I know calling myself as a genius might be a bit far out.

    Considering this is a poll, I find that it lacks a question that the poll takers should answer aswell "If you find out a person is more intelligent/smarter than you, does that affect your pride, positive or negative?"

    Personally its positive.

    That's so cool we're all above average, 18-3. I wonder how the test will end...80 above average- 13 average/below
