Yes, and I think most here are above average as well. Just go to any Facebook comments section or any news website comments section if you want to see below average intelligence.
This is me. There's nothing there lol. I'm pretty smart when writing stuff down though. It's like my brain is only activated through hand motion. To borrow a Pauline Kael phrase - "I only think with a pencil in my hand".
I was recognized as highly intelligent as a child and I skipped kindergarten and went straight to 1st grade. This was the 80s and they would not do this now because of the negative effect it has on social development and I can certainly attest to that. I started college at 17. I had no problem taking a calculus class at 16. I barely studied in high school yet it was rare that I didn't get A's. Things just seem to click naturally for me. Even today, I feel like I catch on quickly and I'm just as sharp as I was in my early 20s.
So yes, I do believe I have above average intelligence.
Surprised tone mainly, and it is usually when we converse about things they believe others know little about or they have never heard the level of deep commentary I give. People also think I am younger than I am too so that could be part of it lol
