ill answer the poll once you are done making it. and yes i am smarter than the average joe. im also smarter than the average rocket scientist as well. yes i am that smart

Rocket Science is not hard. It's essentially the science of propulsion which is based on Newtons Third Law. I never understood why people always think Rocket Scientists are so bright.

its just a figure of speach

I know, but Rocket Science is one of the easiest fields to get a PhD in that involve Physics. I never understood that figure of speech.

Most work is done in Physical Chemistry now, constructing nanotube, graphite chips for computers, exciting electrons into conduction bands for solar cells. We should say "Smart then a Phys Chemist."

I guess that doesn't sound as good......well I got my degree in Astrophysics, so that sounds pretty smug LOL

And being a stargazer makes you smart?

And OT: Of course I am smarter than most on here. And by that I mean socially smart, street smart and intelligent.

I voted yes. School marks put me in the top 95% of the country, went to a top 20 university and graduated with 2nd class honours.

There are a lot of people smarter than me, I met many of them at university. But I am certainly smarter than the average.

95% of people are in the top 95% smartest people in the country. I'd rather be in the top 5%, lol

Not one bit, but it makes people think I'm smart without me needing to say much.

Throughout my life, people have said that I was smart.  I didn't think I were smart, but really was just knowledgable about the subject.  So, in response to when they had called me smart, I always told them I just happen to know about the subject. 

In my opinion, there's no such think as smart.  Even those with 150+ IQ's could be total idiots.  Idiotic by there actions, their choices, their believes, so on.  What we call smart is just too general of a discription.  Is smart the wisdom we use, the knowledge we know, the capability to retain information or maybe all of it.  

No, I make bad decisions, I don't know too much and years of smoking the mary J have ruined my recollection.  I am not smarter than anyone here that I know of.

This is why you're smart.

Do you think an average person would say something like this? You realize facts about the world better then most, IMO. Heck, I think you might be smarter then me, I have too much of an ego to admit what you said in your last sentence.

See, this is why I advocate the definitions I used in my last post.

If you already knew about the subject, then you're simply knowledgeable.

However, if you didn't know anything about the subject, but realized through reasoning and thinking certain important things, then that is what I refer to as intelligence.

People with +150 IQs are of really high intelligence if they got that score without practicing or in any way getting ready for an IQ test, or if they haven't taken "high" level math (cause in that case IQ tests are very easy).
