Smarts vs Intelligence

People value these things far too much.


Intelligence is one thing but it's useless if you're not "smart".

There's a difference between smart and intelligent, stupidity and idiocy.

You need both smarts and intelligence to really be considered something "special" because most of us have one or the other, and some have neither.

And to all the 12-14-year-olds who posted. Probably not if the five or so others with a similar score.


Tests are biased, based on many factors. It's all a question of what test you took. Tests taken at school are simplified and design for child your age and aren't at the same level as one for an average working class adult. You really have to see who the test is aimed at and what the score range is. If it's out of 300 (which I've seen a lot) then 137 is below average. if it's out of 200 (Again I've seen alot) Then 137 is above average. A point score alone with no minimum and maximum range along with it is useless.
