    Which raises the question: "Are we all responding to the poll based on our strengths, while minimizing our weaknesses?" I know I did.[​IMG]


    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.

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