Do you feel you are intelligent? - Page 7

post #91 of 240
I am comparatively retarded.

This is in context with the kids in my high school and future college, though.

I don't study very much and I do pretty well, so I guess I'm getting a little bit of help from somewhere. We'll see how it impacts my success come next March.

You obviously didn't read the article, dummy. Since [almost] no one has more than 2 legs, and many people have less, 2 is more than average.

Anyway, to answer the question, I'm both too smart for my own good, and too dumb to figure out a lot of important stuff. So basically, I fail.

When I was in grad school in clinical psych, one of my professors observed that IQ for the (then) 20th century American was like birth (or class) for a 19th centruy Englishman. His implication was that it is relevant for those who put stock in such things for their own sake, but ultimately of peripheral importance when it comes to results.

I think that is very accurate. I think of it like hieght - it is an objective trait that does have some basic benifits, but is far from the most important thing, and can be limiting at the far ends of the curve. it opens up some possibliities, but doesn't dictate where your life is going.

Why would I read the article when I have you to give me the executive summary? See, that's real life smarts for you.

Is that how you got your doctorate? Reading the cliffsnotes?

I refuse to answer on the basis that my department head could be reading this.

I believe I'm probably top 10-15%...a couple years ago, I probably would have voted top 5%, but I've been humbled ever since I got to college. I'm probably top 30% here.

In terms of IQ, I'm in the top 5%, but I don't place a lot of stock in that.

I recognize that I'm an idiot.

Yet you don't recognize it in the infamous pink cashmere tie thread.

I don't think I am smart at all. That scares me because there are A LOT of people dumber than me.
