No one knows how to measure intelligence. In fact, we can’t even agree on just how to define it.
But having said that, we all have a subjective opinion, an idea, on just what intelligence is and how smarter, or dumber, we are than anyone else.
So humor me, be honest here, how smart do you think you are? Don’t be picky or overly precise, or even concerned about the type of intelligence we are talking about (whatever THAT means). Just tell me how you think your intelligence compares to everyone else. Are you in the top 50%, 20%, 1%? Granted, it is fair to say no one can be expected to accurately assess his own intelligence (or anyone elses, for that matter?). And it doesn’t matter how honest with yourself you may be, this is surely a pure judgement call. But surely you have an opinion.
I’ll go first. Top 10%, +/- 5%.
