    Default How intelligent do you think you are?

    This is a spin off the other thread that claims that most people think they are more intelligent, better looking, etc. than the average person.

    I test well, this is probably because I'm a J.

    I also am good at "big picture" concepts ...that's because I'm an N.

    My strongest point has always been creative or MLA format writing and literary/critical analysis, I'm definitely above average in that department.

    When I was a cashier I always kept a nice neat till, and my drawer was almost always exactly as it should be. I also take good notes.

    I can charm the hell out of people when I apply myself.

    My French teacher told me I have an "ear" for language. I know how to cook.

    However, I'm not sure what this means about my OVERALL intelligence. I'm pretty darn average in math, science, playing the piano, and drawing. I totally suck at many practical endeavors. I have no fortitude for boring, depressing, aesthetically terrible jobs like working in factories or discount stores. I don't suffer fools gladly. I could definitely use some work in terms of skills with technology and electronics. Please don't ask me to chop your firewood.

    I have my opinion.
    But mostly I let others decide if they find me intelligent or not.


    You also can't escape the brilliantly simple logic of Forest Gump.. "Stupid is as stupid does"
    In light of that.. I am probably a bit retarded.

    I got 140 on an online test while high, a thorough one with lots of questions, which are suppose to be crap, but this one looked decent.

    I'm just going to have my fake cake, and not eat it too, by getting a real IQ test.... and embarrassing Einstein, and Jews everywhere, who have the highest average IQs, mine alone would tip the scales. Whoa.

    Metrics-wise (tests of various sorts, grades, etc) I know I am above average. However, I also know I am no genius and am aware of who is more (or much more, as the case may be) intelligent in certain areas than I - from an intuitive/aptitude base, at least. I'm not exactly speaking of knowledge/subject-matter expertise, as that's something that can be learned. Although obviously aptitude plays into the ability to be able to learn and excel at certain subjects.

    Also I think it should be noted that the majority of people on this forum are above-average in intelligence - so this forum is in no way representative of the general population.

    I don't think so, I know it... I can post test results to prove it as well

    I can't blame all the stupid things I don't do and do on my intelligence. I presume it's variable.

    I would give myself a 6. I believe that when you ask yourself a question such "how intelligent am I?" you shouldn't take into account the whole population in your ranking, rather you should condition your score to whatever largest set you consider as "intelligent people".

    If the average IQ is 100 +/- 15 or if the average man is averagely intelligent, then I am above average intelligence.
