    I think deep down I have a tendency to feel that most people are smarter than me, to be honest.

    I'm always trying to improve myself and understand new things but in the end I think it just makes me feel like a burned out slug. Not quick enough. Not clever enough.

    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?
    I gauge peoples intelligence on how they apply there knowledge, so for example a second grade student learns 2+2 then takes that knowledge and comes up with groupings of 2 ie 2 4 6 8 etc I would then think that child is gifted in that area. I think this is the best way to guess someone's intelligence because you can be amazing in one subject because you study it intensely and continuously but still be stupid in all most every other area of your life. To the main topic of the thread though have I met anyone smarter then me? Yes I have (I think) my intj best friend (known as triangle on this forum) and probably lots of people online and maybe a douche bag at my school who got into mensa ( The whole idea of mensa makes me want to vomit I think communication with all the intelligence levels and people of all types will help create peace and education for all which our world surely needs and I have no need to get my iq tested and neither do I want it tested. The kids iq is 138 so he barely got in the only reason I know this is because he makes facebook statuses about it.)

    Smart is too nebulous a word... but people of these types have seriously impressed me with their insight and intellect:

    INTP
    ENTP
    INTJ
    INFJ
    INFP

    ^ That's not in any kind of order. And FYI I don't know any confirmed ENTJs IRL.

    Now street smarts would be a completely different story...

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    Uhm,

    INTP Dude
    A beast at noticing patterns and logical inconsistencies, hyper-focuses on things he's interested in, and is great with compsci. Wears the same thing every day. INTJ friend calls it his 'uniform.'
    INFP Dude
    Good at math, really strong critical thinking skills, great at philosophy/psychology, educates himself thoroughly on topics of interest.
    INFJ Dude
    Reminds me of the INFP Dude, though I don't know him. From my observations - very intelligent, awesome critical thinking skills, very logical
    ENTP Dude
    Quick with his words, very mature, emotionally intelligent and self-aware. Good writer. Works damn hard and studies a lot.
    ESXX Chick
    She can memorize things like a monster and is good at solving math/science related problems. Isn't too great with writing/humanities, though, from what I've noticed. Spoiled sorority girl, but there is a machine behind her vapid, girly facade.
    ISFP Chick
    In some ways - I think she can pick up on science/math more easily than I can, but I feel like I'm better with more humanities-oriented subjects.


    Bolded is the one who I think legitimately outclasses me.

    People that are smarter than me I have to learn from.

    I have no idea, because I don't go about life constantly searching for things to bruise\boost my ego by comparing myself to everyone else. And smart, how? In what way? I'm certain 90% of the world are smarter than me in some way. But at the end of the day who cares, it's not something I can do anything about and has little impact on how I go about my life.

    The first thing that came into my mind when I read the OP was: smarter at what?

    I don't know anyone's IQ, and don't really care. The smartest people I've met in my life have not been good at everything, or even at most things. They were phenomenal in one, or a few related areas.

    So the idea that there is a monolith called intelligence, has always struck me as largely useless. The one's I know who like others to know about their high IQ's, generally write mediocre poetry.

    Most people I know are not smarter than me, as far as I can observe. My ego may be responsible, who knows. I have a couple friends who are very academically smart, most likely INTPs, but have been known to get so hung up on details that it's impossible to have a big picture conversation with them. Usually trends to arguing even when we're both saying the same damn thing, they just can't see it.

    I've not met many people who were smarter than me, I met lots when I was at university college dublin, like people who were completing their PhDs when they were in their early twenties and never had to look for work because universities, transglobal corporations, governments were head hunting them for research departments or divisions but that's one year out of my 33. When I mean lots I think I really mean between four and eight. Two of whom were like the character in Good Will Hunting without the anger issues.

    I'm actually not sure how to place them typology wise, perhaps INTJs, although I also think that two of them had strong SFP or at least SP streaks.
