Good point. I'm a dumbass at a lot of things.

While I think intelligence is rightly held in high regard, I still believe that wisdom supersedes it, and in wisdom lies true success.

LOL, currently 18% rated themselves average or below (I rated myself below). The most common reply? Top 5% by a good margin (45% of respondents!)

This thread delivers.

I voted average. I have more insight than intelligence.

I'm smart but until someone finds a cure for lazy I'll be unable to show it.

That being said, I'm above average.

People tell me I am smart but I don't feel that I am. I think that holds me back from going for better jobs because I don't feel I am smart. I have a degree from a good school, but don't feel I know as much as others do.

I'm with you on that. I'm not a lazy person, but when I go through one of my depressed phases, I will not do a thing.

my academic credentials would say i'm intelligent (tested really high iq as a child, near-straight A high school student, near-perfect math scores on sat I/II/GRE, finishing up a ph.d), but in the company of my peers throughout all of my academic life, I've always had the constant nagging feeling of self doubt... that I was a dumbass since I never felt i understood anything. It was much easier regurgitating information so that you could feign intelligence.

has academic achievement translated to success in life? nope. I was just good at taking tests. As I got older, I realized I just rested on my laurels and skated by without ever learning any practical knowledge... which I equate with being a dumbass.

I feel dumber each passing year, and at a moreso rate during my SF "membership".

True story.

I didn't vote. I don't get it.

There are times when I feel that every around me is an idiot... so by the process of elimination I must be a genius.
