    INTJ: How do you know you are intelligent?

    Have you ever questioned your own intelligence? How do you know you are intelligent? How do you know that the other people around you are just stupid logs?

    Have you even thought about it? Is thee a way to prove you are smarter than anyone else?

    I'm not intelligent, I just tend prefer to spend more time thinking about certain things which make me look intelligent to other people. Intelligence is a function of time and allocation.

    I'm not hung up on how smart I am compared to other people. It's never been a priority, though I do enjoy furthering my knowledge base. (Because I get curious)

    measured high in IQ (not that it means much) whenever someone describes me they say I'm intelligent, highly adaptable, logical, rational, can pick up tasks very easily by either illustration, demonstration, verbally, non-verbally. Able to break down complex systems, simplify then re-complicate.

    Relationships?? Dumbarse!!

    Stupid logs just sit there and talk about stuff that requires no thought....there are a lot of them!!

    Can't be bothered trying to prove my intelligence....how about the stupid logs prove theirs?

    Have I ever questioned my intelligence? Every day. But I've finally gotten to the point where I can truly say, I can't be anything I'm not. If I have reached my intellectual limits, I've reached my limits. If my limitations are lower than your average Joe, so what? Intelligence isn't the mark by which I'm successful.

    How do I know I'm intelligent? I don't. Not for sure. Honestly, I suck at math. My emotional intelligence is iffy. I just know what information I can find about the things that have my interest. In those areas of interest, I'll give you everything I have. I'll study, question, and discuss whatever information is necessary for me to learn until I either succeed or collapse from the effort. If that seems like intelligence to you, then I'm happy. If not, well, I can't change that. There are always going to be some people who find you stupid, and others who find you smart.

    In my opinion you only qualify for the 'stupid log' category if you have the ability to be intelligent, but choose not to act upon it. That is stupid.

    I love your words and your idea...I think there are different types of intelligences...so I don't pay attention to IQ...but if you know yourself and follow your heart wherever it leads you, that's brilliant; And I always tell people to never compare themselves to others and just to be who they are and follow what they value in themselves

    Agreed. I don't really care that much. I just want to know as much as I want to know about something, and I'm not bothered about what class of person that puts me into.

    Guess I have a high ego. I NEED to know and to be sure that I am intelligent. When you think about it the border doesnt always seems so clear. Thank you for your opinions though.

    My cognitive ability is the only light in my life to be honest, I am nothing without it.

    I make link between various subject and knowledge really fast but I'm not a lot smarter than average. I'm not all that good with math, I dont know a lot of stuff about all that many subjects. I have plenty of idea and I'm happy with my level of intelligence because it allows me to achieve the goal I have set for myself.

    I wish I was smarter sometimes but sometimes I feel I would be pinpointed as a nerd/weird guy even more lol
