    Do you consider yourself an intelligent person?

    This is the internet after-all, so we can waive the false modesty.

    Do you consider yourself intelligent? And if so why?

    Well, I actually had to pick up the dictionary to check the exact meaning of "intelligent". It says: 1. endowed with understanding. 2. clever, quick. 3 (of a machine etc.) able to adapt in response to varying circumstances and requirements. 

    I answered your question so I think that shows that I am "endowed with understanding". Clever is ... in the eye of the beholder; quick I am though. I picked up the dictionary to properly understand your question and therefore, I adapted to the situation in my opinion. I don't know ... what does it really matter if one thinks they are intelligent or not? I think stupid people think they are intelligent: have you heard anyone say "No, I'm not intelligent ... actually I'm quite stupid."

    Seems like a pretty straight-forward question, but man it gets tough when you really think about what the answer is.  I would sure love to give a non-hesitant, confident 'yes' response, but then look around and can easily find some outcomes in life are not based on what anyone would consider 'intelligent moves'.  So to answer the question with a question, how often does one have to act intelligently to truly be considered intelligent?  I need numbers here because I guess I really don't know.

    Oh, and yes, I am a genius.

    First i would like to respond with another question, just to clarify. What do you mean by 'intelligent'? Do you mean do I have a good memory, or do I learn fast or is my determination based on the results of an IQ test?
