    The only flaw I can see in this poll is that it lacks a category for "simply brillant". Why settle for "above average"?

    I have gotten widely varied results on IQ tests and I have taken numerous ones. The online ones I've typically scored in the 130-150 range but I suspect there is a bit of score inflation there. Results on official tests were around 125 which is probably more accurate.

    And how about "Too intelligent for your own good"?

    Above average includes simply brilliant.

    I have a hard time with questions such as this. Because, as far as academia goes... I'm the perfect student. I'm good at memorizing things, I can recall facts quickly, I can absorb textbook chapters like a sponge. If you look at my grades and standardized test scores, I am, by academic standards, above average.

    However, any time an academic exercise requires one to come up with their own/new idea... Or infer their own ideas from information that has been presented... I'm useless. If you give me poetry or prose and ask me to derive 'deeper meanings' from the text, I can't. I take things very literally and understand them as they are. I also have a hard time understanding people and their motives, as well as their feelings.

    Because of that, I truly believe I am the perfect student, but am going to fail miserably as an adult. I wish I could stay in school forever. And I wouldn't dare call myself 'smart'. Book-smart, yes. Smart? No.

    This thread is a better illustration of illusory superiority/the above-average effect than any type disparity.

    Did you take me off ignore yet, Coach? 'Cos it might help you to stop embarrassing yourself by regurgitating all my material, but with less flair.

    To be honest, I hope I am average, as anything else makes me despair for humanity. Unfortunately, according to most of the people around me, I am above average.

    Are you the one NT who voted below average intelligence?
