I Never Met a Smarter Person Than Me

by Shane
(Appleton WI)

I scored above 145 and I never met anyone smarter than me.


I know hundreds of people. Many of people I associate with I would consider smart people, but never have I found myself in the company of someone who I felt was "smarter" than myself. People are sometimes more educated and know more facts, but I solve problems with quicker and more efficient answers than every one I have ever met.

Often I find myself in conversation with people I feel are very intelligent... hoping I found someone "smarter" always finding out the "I.Q." of the person to be in the high 120's or low 130's.

I have met people that I would be sure would test high on an IQ test, but those people often have a sociological defect. I have also met people with talents in arts or great problem and puzzle solving ability greater than mine, but again with more in depth research to the people I find that all other areas I exceed them. I excel at anything I practice, and am pretty good at most things I try the first time.

I never tell my friends I am smarter then them, I often look to them for answers. My life is average. I get crap from people for me keeping myself average, but I am happy.

I am the smartest person I have personally met
by: Davy

I have written a bot to mine all internet content that is public to try to find others like me.

I have worked and met hundreds of thousands of people and have never found a person smarter than me in ANY way. This includes citing accurate facts but is certainly not limited to that. I am a master of almost every trade discipline and methodical theory I have come across.
I have thousands of artistic and practical accomplishments and inventions that are all recorded. My life is absolutely not average.

If you have not met someone as smart as you, it is likely a result of your average life. The community of intelligent people (gold) and that of the common man (silver and bronze) rarely cross paths. Even most medical personel these days fall far short of gold. You may live your entire life and not meet a person smarter than you. If you truly are smart then use your intelligence to solve the greatest dilemmas of man and the universe.

Reverse entropy.

Once I began attacking this problem scientifically with the greatest technologies that our species has discovered to date. The inevitable contact and acceptance as gold came on it's own.

I do not come from a gold family and was completely ignorant of what the gold of society even meant.

Unfortunately if you do not create things or do anything meaningful with your intelligence then you are considered a waste and any hopes of contact would be dashed before coming about.

I highly doubt that. Even if what you say is true, a higher education is more useful that a higher IQ, since a high IQ provides no source of advancement in itself other than problem solving skills and such, of which you cannot apply without proper education.

Basically, an education is more essential that a high IQ if you are to consider a level of smartness, making your entire point invalid.
Another thing, if you truly had a high IQ of such, you would probably know the basics of grammar.

Poor understanding of the English language for someone so "smart"
by: Anonymous

You claim to be smarter than anyone you have ever met. Perhaps this is because you are too conceited to notice your own short comings.
Your English writing skills are below average (read the beginning of your 2nd paragraph, for example).
I suspect you are in fact of average intelligence & you convinced yourself that if you wrote a fictional comment about being "smart" & at least one person believed you; then it must be gospel.
Good luck deceiving yourself & others but I would suggest changing your way of thinking & realizing the most intelligent people in the world got to where they are today by listening to others & always being mindful of the fact that there is always going to be someone "smarter" than them in the world.

Narcissistic personality disorder
by: Anonymous

You have quite a few symptoms of Narcissistic personality disorder. Unfortunately it is unusual for people to seek therapy for NPD. Since your IQ is high you should realize the need for treatment so that you may have a chance to be sucessful in the future. Good Luck!

Its hard to meet smarter people when ur living in ur mom's basement...
by: Anonymous

For a "smart" person, you're sure not a very good writer... Nor do you understand what the Intelligence Quotient actually means. And frankly, this post has me questioning your rationality as well.

If you'd like to meet someone more intelligent than yourself, go to a Mensa meeting. 145 does not qualify, making Mensa a whole group (of over 120 million eligible people), devoted to being smarter than you. And over 300 million will outscore a 145 on any given test.

Furthermore, you'll be surprised to find that many of these "smarter" people are well rounded individuals that are socially gifted as well. So if you've never met anyone smarter than you, than frankly, you need to get out more. 145 is not that impressive, nor an indication of how "smart" you may be. Anyone who's taken a true IQ test knows that it's simply a comparative learning capacity, and bears no indication of how well you use it, IF you use it, or what information you've actually taken in or utilized. Get over yourself

Competitions: good for bragging rights, not much else
by: Anonymous

Competitions are fun and stimulating, but the pool of people who attend them is extremely limited. To guage your intelligence based on that is to assume that your competitors represent all or even most of the brightest minds.

What do Einstein, Hawking, Newton, Socrates, and Aristotle all have in common? None of them attended such competitions.

Misconception: "I am smarter than my peers"
by: Anonymous

You may be gifted, but you cannot accurately measure the intelligence of those around you. Despite all too common feelings of superiority, (reinforced by lifetimes of praise, high test scores, and advanced placement classes), we have no true means to assess or compare our intelligence to those around us. Let me illustrate my point:

Certainly, you can judge a person by their grades, classload, accomplishments, exam scores, and daily vocabulary. But how much of the picture are you really getting before you write them off as "inferior?"

For instance, the intelligent do not flaunt their vocabulary, for it is impractical. The insecure do. When a word is not common or widely understood, it is not effective to use it, so an effective communicator will chose a more appropriate phrase. they may even use a less advanced word when speaking to YOU, as they, like you, assume others are inferior. How would you know? Limited conversations prevent you from recognizing instances such as these. If your words are bigger, it may be that you have something to prove, are less appropriate to your audience, or that you're more inclined to an over the top or "ostentacious" presentation.

Another example? Certainly. The quickest problem solvers are not usually the ones to blurt out the answer, announcing their speed to others present. Someone who is secure in their intelligence does not need to raise a hand, volunteer a response, or otherwise brag about their intellectual prowess to those around them, for it only breeds envy, attempts to cheat, academic leeches, and rivalry. How many people have solved problems BEFORE you, yet remained quiet, while you stole the spotlight moments later?

We are often aware of our own intelligence. We are complimented, praised, and rewarded to keep us motivated. But at what cost? Is it possible that the same superiority that keeps us motivated and self-aware also blinds us to the gifts of others? Being a top dog in a small kennel proves nothing. If you know noone more intelligent than yourself, it is not a sign of intelligence at all, but of ignorance to the outside world.

He's dominated all 3 colleges he's been to.. i've never even beat him yet..hehe your location matters a lot too by the way.. but hey.. it's good to know there are lots of smart people too.. =)

I know
by: Anonymous

I feel exactly the same way. I definitely would think that I would have met somebody smarter than myself at some point, especially considering I have met many college professors and successful business people. However they always end up being more educated than inteligent. The few people who seem to naturally excel at something more than I do are much more deficient in all other areas.
