I've always been a straight A student and I'm a med student now. If you are talking academically then I guess yes. If you mean general knowledge then no I'm average.

You're a copy of me :O


Let's be besties. ;)

How far along are you? I'm still a first year student.

this is just natural i guess ^-^ everybody secretly thinks they can something much better/or have better skills/look better/what ever as someon else. even without any proof. this is what makes us self confident i guess



I voted show me the results. Personally I dont care whether or not im smarter than most people. Most likely from an an intellectual perspective I am (~140 IQ when tested in 8th Grade) but that doesnt mean squat. Smart is based on SO many different factors. I know people with (measured) IQs of ~150 or so that are stupid when it comes to anything in the real world. As we would say they are Book smart and not street smart.

There are clearly people here who are more educated and also others who are more ignorant than I am in alot of subjects. Overall I would say I know less about video games than most as I spend far more time browsing this site than I do playing games. Which is sad considering I only check in here a few times a day and only for a few moments.



I mostly play RTS and Moba style games now adays as well as ALOT of benchmarking. I do play other games however such as the witcher 3 and Crysis 3, and recently Ashes of the Singularity. I love gaming on the cutting edge and refuse to accept any compromises. Proud member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race. Long Live SHIO!!!! 

Depends what sight we're talking about, this one:

or this one?



Signature goes here!

I'd be curious if we asked "Are you smarter than the average person on the street", whether we would get the same percentage of people saying yes/no.

Tough to say really. Some people put on an intellectual air on the inter web, but in real life they're devoid of any real substance. I can't say since I don't know you very well, nor do I know anything about the other posters here. I don't want to be 'that guy' to list my degrees to show how smart I am, but then again, I've met people with degrees who are severely lacking in common sense, and have what I call low 'social intelligence'. And that raises the question of what kind of intelligence we are talking about here.

That would be interesting. I would love to see the response of somebody from a place like Boston since the average person has at least tertiary level education. Likewise, I would love to see the response of somebody in a situation on the other end of the spectrum.



I'm as smart as Forrest Gump.

So you've met the president I assume? Impressive.

By what do you define "smart"? If it is about the IQ, then probably yes. My IQ is at ~130


I'm 150, and so is my brother.
