Of course, this statement alone is nothing more than a blind and crude guess, so I'm testing my theory.
    It's certainly the impression many NTs give off....

    I would say that no one is smarter than any other....

    But I would be saying that to try to sound smart.

    It's entirely possible I'm deluded, but I have not met many people who will match me for wit. I think many people similar type to me might say the same.

    However, I know many people smarter than I am. The more experience that I have, the more it becomes clear to me that true intelligence is not a matter of accomplishments or scrupulousness, but how ones embodies the beauty of life. The smartest people I've ever known are hardly enviable by mosts' standard, but one cannot help but be captured by their mere existence when they are around.

    To me, they are the smartest not for intellectual victories, but for living to the fullest. If life were a canvas or an instrument, they would be a virtuoso.

    Loaded? The thread title alone is a give away.

    Curiosity? There's nothing wrong with that, Spartacuss

    Smart people: more than a few INTPs; one ENTP; some STJs. None tested, I'm just guessing their types with hindsight. Now I'm thinking if I don't know any SPs or NJs (or Feelers!) who have struck me as really smart. I can't think of any right now.

    By the way, and answering on the unavoidable discussion: yes, I've only looked at intelligence in the narrow meaning of the word. I thought that was the purpose of the question. There are people other than the ones above for who I've got quite some respect. Not because they are smarter (otherwise I'd put them there), but because they are more brave, stronger or just plainly better than I am.
    There are also some people in the little list above for who I've got no respect at all. Yes they are smarter than me, but still they don't earn my respect.

    If you mean on a purely intellectual level, I have yet met someone who can seriously beat me in that area, it's probably the environment I'm in though. Like someone else said earlier, smart is going to mean different things to various people, someone can be math smart, socially smart, or the introspective kind, it depends on the context. I will say that having a certain "awareness" seems kind of like the essence of intelligence to me.

    lol I'm sorry if it sounds malicious, it really isn't. I love NT's, it's not a trap I promise! I'm just trying to understand them better and the results have been exactly what I've been looking for.

    Here's a 2nd question to throw into the mix, do any of you play any sort of competitive, intellectual game like chess? How do you gauge someone's intelligence, is it just through discussion and debates?

    Yea no. You are probably talking about yourself here so I am going to regard this coment as semi-bullshit.
