Do you feel intellectually inferior on this site?

Posted by: PetersSmith

I understand that there are a lot of people on this site with wide ranges of intelligence, but I think you should be going off those who you actually interacted with.

I feel I am around the same as others in regards to intelligence.

I feel I am somewhat intellectually superior to the others on this site.

“Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence– whether much that is glorious– whether all that is profound– does not spring from disease of thought– from moods of mind exalted at...  the expense of the general intellect.” -Edgar Allan Po   more

I feel like I may be the smartest person on this site.

I may be the most unintelligent person on this site.

It's debatable whether you can even count to potato.

“An intellectual? Yes. And never deny it. An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself. I like this, because I am happy to be both halves, the watcher and the watched. "Can they be brought together?" This is a practical question. We must get...  down to it. "I despise intelligence" really means: "I cannot bear my doubts.” -Albert Camu   more

Calling all narcissist and self-loathing.

I don't know what is the average intelligence of people on this site. So far I have met people smarter and dumber than me in different subjects.
Kreakin says2015-04-24T16:44:20.5890441-05:00
Like above, I'm smarter than some dumber than others. I wouldn't generalise so didn't vote.

@PetersSmith It tells me very little. You certainly have the skill to acquire information. You just need to find the best way to implement it.

These results are facsimating. I actually think PeterSmith is one of the smartest on here. She loses because its her against about 4 or 5 people who dont know what theyre talking about half the time. And she finds good sources to use and this shows that shes humble about her smarts too which is nice to see.
Kreakin says2015-04-24T17:42:55.0731727-05:00
I think PetersSmith voted that way for appearances and perhaps it is not what she really believes? These polls are a display of intellect which says something...
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-24T17:46:55.0183108-05:00
"I can never win any argument, what does that tell you?" I believe you have beaten me in several arguments, lets see there was the laser eye shark, the psychology arguments, me complaining about your polls being too long. Actually now that I think about it, I don't know if I have won any argument against you.
Kreakin says2015-04-24T17:47:45.4378340-05:00
Unless ofcourse it's a self esteem issue but this is all to personal sobest leave it there..
PetersSmith says2015-04-24T17:52:32.0423650-05:00
Kreakin: No, you clearly don't understand. I have no idea why people even noticed that I voted.
reece says2015-04-24T17:59:02.6849753-05:00
@PetersSmith I notice when anyone votes...
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-24T17:59:57.4481934-05:00
" No, you clearly don't understand. I have no idea why people even noticed that I voted." The comment makes it fairly easy to notice.
PetersSmith says2015-04-24T18:00:35.7823766-05:00
Mathgeekjoe: It was just one vote, and now you're making a big deal about it.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-24T18:02:27.6078889-05:00
Big deal out of what?
PetersSmith says2015-04-24T18:02:54.2840599-05:00
Mathgeekjoe: A big deal out of my vote.
reece says2015-04-24T18:03:19.8093838-05:00
*sigh*
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-24T18:03:24.9538565-05:00
That isn't a big deal, I just noticed it and it confused me.
Kreakin says2015-04-25T08:19:11.3424331-05:00
@PetersSmith - If you create polls to analyze people and then vote on them, you will be analyzed by others. Your vote and comment appear to be contradictory to how people here see you and how you appear to see yourself. :)
PetersSmith says2015-04-25T12:39:37.9634132-05:00
Kreakin: And that would be one of the reasons why I don't vote on polls. I do it two times in two weeks and look what happens.
reece says2015-04-25T13:48:33.4843708-05:00
@PetersSmith By "look what happens" Do you mean that people comment on your opinion...? You do realize this is a website where ideas are shared and discussed?
