    Agreed. I find this is generally true.

    Smartest people... an INTJ named Chris who in many ways was my equal. I have yet to met another person like him, nor have i seen him in about 5 years. We were in the same GATE class in 4th/5th grade and always played with paper airplanes/Legos. sweet.

    But in any sense, the smartest people understand themselves and others, knowing they live in an imperfect world. I think its ironic that the types of people who love knowledge and understanding the world are often the most misunderstood themselves.

    There's an objective manner to judge intelligence?
    Surgeons replace one of your neurons with a microchip that duplicates its input-output functions. You feel and behave exactly as before. Then they replace a second one, and a third one, and so on, until more and more of your brain becomes silicon. Since each microchip does exactly what the neuron did, your behavior and memory never change. Do you even notice the difference? Does it feel like dying? Is some other conscious entity moving in with you?

    No. But there are some things (like IQ tests) which falsely give that impression.

    I'm not getting into type. But I have met more than enough people I would subjectively consider smarter.

    online its a lot of INTPs from this spesific forum:
    The AUTOSPORT Bulletin Board -> The Technical Forum

    And you can`t say its because their values or whatever matches mines.

    A two or more have been working within F1 to give you people a pointer.

    go trought the first pages and you will also find the page were i ask them to take the MBTI test.

    Some Emo insisted it was all bs as you can see.

    In real life i really got impressed by a working college. He was a mechanic but was considering so much in so little things.

    And it was actually important aspects too it was just that no one ever think of the shape of the handle or the roundness of the hex grabbing pattern. Aspects about old technicues vs new ones.
    gains and downsides.

    Really high tech stuff on hes working level. He was thinking about nothing else than mech stuff. he loved to make everything from stratch and the materials needed to have a history too.
    All this was for his HD bikes.
    He was some Intovert who never stopped talking when he was with friends. he was a habit animal i considered him. Lived in the same house for 20years, been interested in HD or motorcycles all life. he was never moody and i only got him angry once in two years.

    Being a AD/HD INTJ kid with allergy against pauses he had some impressive patience.

    He within himself new that he was a habit animal and was together with some crazy ad/hd ex junkie now alcis girl who was completely unpredictable. he did that to get some chance in hes life i believed.

    he basically said right out: its exciting i never know whats going on when i come home.

    One day she took a drill and drilled in 3 parker screws in her hand.
    before she went to sleep in a alcho/pill state.

    Hes view at work was highly respected as he had the importance of things clearly structured. Plus he was knowledgeable of course.

    I learned a lot from that little lazy chain smoking bugger.

    Completely new ways of thinking. Can you imagine that.
    It got its own feeling too.

    I don`t think i know any INTJ persons.

    puhh fkn essay.

    In terms of sheer brainpower, I've met a few who I considered significantly smarter than me... but it doesn't happen a lot. There's a larger group I consider "in the same ballpark," though.

    Out of the few I've met (people I figure who are around IQ 155-160+), they're typically lacking social skills, but one of them (HilbertSpace over on INTPc, but left the site two years ago or more) was able to engage people on a more human level.

    I think sometimes people can be immensely smart but don't know how to make it relevant to daily human experience, which can be an issue... especially when it comes to being friends. The one guy, I think he means well... but I get tired of him following me around the one night a month I'm at a meeting he attends and having him tell me all about the new wonderful projects he's exploring. The problem is he knows I can basically understand what he's saying, and I know it must be hard for him not having a lot of outlets where people "get him"; but at that point, I don't want to "talk shop," I just want to relax and have a good time and hang.

    I do best with people who are above average in intelligence but who know how to just relate on a human level and make their smarts relevant to daily experience.

    As far as the type goes? I think the supersmart ones were NT types. Pretty much it varies within my range of intelligence and below -- it includes both N's and S's, and T's and F's.

    It all depends on who I'm compared to in how intelligent I feel. Compared to the general population, well above average. However, I tend to hang out mostly with highly intelligent people, so I don't always feel particularly smart. On forums like these, I'd say most people are probably well above average in IQ. So I feel kind of average here.

    I really don't mind if others I meet are as smart or smarter than me, it makes intelligence or talent seem like less of a burden when I realize I'm not the only one it causes to know 'too much' at certain times. I'm a solitary extrovert at times because people think they can pull you back in after you realize that they think they control what others are able to learn or imagine.
