    Well...isn't it obvious?

    Would you rather have a polite or an honest answer?

    Although to be fair, it's high likely that you have some sort of autism, so maybe you deserve a discount when it comes to human interactions.

    Agree with what @Jaguar said.

How would you respond to similar comments? Would you say "Thanks" or something more?

I know I'm exceptionally intelligent, and she's merely stating the obvious.

    Oh yeah, and how would you respond to it?

    You sound like a woman dude. That is your problem right there, it's nothing to do with looks.

    Of course, human interactions don't really count when it comes to intelligence.

    This is true for men's compliments to women.

    But women are less likely to compliment a guy they like in the first place, because they know we will take it as a blatant invitation. So it doesn't apply so much.

    I would go so far as to say that if a girl compliments your intelligence, you should be suspicious.

    Your consistent pattern of asking questions and disregarding answers summarily eliminates "obviously intelligent".

    As for "intelligent", you seem to have a preference for shallow discussions about yourself - e.g. "wish me happy birthday", "today is my xº anniversary in this forum"," do I need a plastic surgery", "how can I get more attention", which suggests an average intelligence at most.

    What does a 140+ IQ suggest?

    Plus a persistent need for external affirmation.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
