    Why wouldn't he?
    I know I'm above average in intelligence, but I also know that there are so many people that are much more intelligent than me. I attended a high-school that only allowed top grade students in Sweden, among that group of people I certainly felt average, if not even below average.

    I attended an early college program, so that's probably why I feel the same way.

    I am much smarter than most people I have ever met, but I am not the smartest. I think it is more important that I can grasp and apply theories/ideas/bits of information to make something awesome.

    That being said, I haven't met a dumb NT yet.

    Me neither... but if I think someone is dumb, I usually don't care enough about them to find out their MBTI type. :/ Because I don't like dumb people very much.

    But I think the percentage of one type or another among the dumb people I know is the same as the percentage of one type or another among everyone I know -- i.e. I know more dumb NFs because I know more NFs in general. Seems pretty proportional. *shrugs*

    EDIT: To clarify, my definition of "dumb" usually relates to a lack of common sense and a belligerent inability to figure out how wrong you are about something -- i.e. inability to listen to reason, i.e. a certain type of closed-mindedness. And by that definition, I have met quite a few dumb NTs.

    I've got an abstract mind. I'm good with numbers, vectors, curvatures, tensors... you name it. I guess "abstract mind" is one of the signs of NT-ness (wasn't N the abstract side?) Of course, this means I'm above average intelligence... if you test intelligence with math.
    Otherwise, I'm just your average girl. That's why I prefer to say I'm "good at math". It's a bit more modest and a lot more true.

    I've once taught a class of future electricians. They assumed that, because I could do these impossible things like finding the zeroes of a parabola (which is, in my opinion, EASY), I was all-round "smart" and knew everything. So they started asked questions about electric circuits. Now, I know Ohms' law and a few other very basic things, but how to build a circuit that can make an electric motor turn both directions, including a safety for when a stupid guy switches the forward moving motor into reverse without stopping it??? No idea.
    They were baffled. "But you're INTELLIGENT! You can do math! What are you going to do then when there's some problems with the electricity at your house?"
    I had the perfect answer: "Call an electrician, of course. Maybe I'll call YOU!" But they still struggled with the concept that they could be smarter than their math teacher... In my opinion, one of the most important tasks of a teacher is making the students feel they can be smart too.

    Ditto that. I have, however, met a couple of excruciatingly close-minded NTs... which could be considered a type of stupidity/idiocy.

    I agree that willful ignorance and a stubborn clinging to irrational beliefs is a form of stupidity. It prevents reasoned and logical inferences in much the same way that an inability to grasp such reasoning brings about.

    The average 'average' is my 'embarrassingly low'. So I'm above that average but with mine I've far to go.

    Yeah and all the NF's think they understand everyone, specifically INFJs tend to think they are some sort of psychic... its pathetic.
