    I don't consider myself to be above average intelligence, I know myself to be above average intelligence. I would expect that if you're going to find many folks to consider or know themselves the same, I would think that Skadi is one of the very few forums where this can probably be taken for bare coin.

    According to standardized tests I took I am above average. And I have soon before that I am not bluffing .

    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    I don't really know; modern methods of measuring intelligence, i.e. IQ tests and whatnot, are things that I'm very skeptical of. Thus I chose "no idea."

    As I already said in that other thread, I consider myself to be of average intelligence. But I don´t know for sure.

    I think of myself as average. I choose to read about more things than most so it may appear that I'm above average. It's more what I know than how good my brain is. Either that, or I've just been lucky in school.

    I believe that I am above average intelligence. This is compared to the average person I meet and talk with. I'm surprised many of them can perform basic mental functions! I don't feel the need for unabashed humility and intentionally mark myself lower.

    Above average in the context of comparison to my own peers. I am 18, in high school, and so you can imagine just from my sheer presence on this forum (not to mention my ability to coherently construct a sentence in the English language with proper functions...) that I am certainly above their average. I'm not foolish enough to think I'm on the level of a Ph.D. physicist, but do I think I could get there if I wanted to be a Ph.D. physics researcher? Oh yes, I most certainly do. Renownedwolf is right, humility is foolish. Intelligence is something to take pride in. I am proud to be smart, and to be able to succeed when I apply myself to something with conviction.
