When I see dumb or brilliant thinking, I reach for the Noetic Explorer™ (Smarts or not).

The Noetic Explorer™ - Beauty fades - Dumb is permanent™ e.g. Lindsay Lohan

This section is for advanced users in the cohort.

"The Greek word meaning “to think” or “to perceive” came to English as noesis, meaning “purely intellectual knowledge” or “a process or act of thinking.” The adjective noetic means “of, relating to, or based on the intellect.” - Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

Here are the IQ ranges:
1 to 24: Profound mental disability
25 to 39: Severe mental disability
40 to 54: Moderate mental disability
55 to 69: Mild mental disability
70 to 84: Borderline mental disability
85 to 114: Average intelligence
115 to 129: Above average or bright
130 to 144: Moderately gifted
145 to 159: Highly gifted
160 to 179: Exceptionally gifted
180 and up: Profoundly gifted

To benchmark yourself, the average IQ in Australia in 2023 is 99.24 (Rank = 17) (worldpopulationreview.com) whereas in Chapter 8 pp. 68-77, Richard Lynn, Washington Summit Publisher, 1st edition 2006 and 2nd edition 2015 indicates that the median value IQ of Australian Aboriginies is 62. That corresponds to the mental age of an 11 year old European. The average for a Filipino is 81.64, Japanese are the smartest at 106.48 while Singapore is third with 105.89. How noetic are you today?

You will most likely need assistance if you are here by accident :-) This might tell you what but it will not tell you how.

To know means to have a clear perception or understanding of, to be sure of, have securely in your memory.
Intelligence (IQ) is the ability to respond quickly (as in without hesitation) and successfully (achieving the outcome you were hoping for) to a new (meaning never seen this before) situation. Intelligence is also an ability to learn, to continuously get smarter.

Here are all the sixteen patterns.

Here is a shortcut to see if the person is front of you is smart or not. Watch their choice of conversation.
This is used on a daily basis and fully approved by Oxor™.

"Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people."
-- Eleanor Roosevelt, 1884 - 1962, US First Lady 1933 - 1945 --

Here is a quote that is very useful and fully approved by Oxor™.
"Ninety-five percent of people who walk the earth are simply inert. One percent are saints and one percent are assholes. The other three percent are people who do what they say they can do."
-- Stephen King, 1947 -, US author of horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, crime, science-fiction and fantasy novels --

Here is a shortcut to pick the intelligent person.
When working with really smart people, you will observe that you never have to explain anything twice. They pay close attention. They tend to understand the first time.
Contrast that to those who ask stupid questions ("Are we out of eggs?") or just do not 'get it'.

Intelligent people are good at many things. But everything boils down to one top quality - imagination.
Additionally, intelligent people are inquisitive individuals who constantly ask questions or are eager to know the answers to everything they come across. In short, curiosity drives them and it is fuel for their imaginative brains. Imagination is key to judging or observing someone's intelligence because intelligent individuals are highly imaginative. Imagination and openness describes how creative the individual is.
e.g. Take a case wheren a person must explain something very complex to a novice. Now comes the trick: see whether the person can explain the complexity in a simpler way for the other person to understand. If they are successful, then they could be intelligent. Breaking down complex things and presenting them in an easier way that is simple to understand is a skill that not every individual possesses. This could be a trait that could mean they have above normal imagination and a sign of intelligence.

Here is a longcut to pick the intelligent person. This is not a proforma that indicates that a person is automatically highly intelligent, but these types of behaviour occur in people with high IQ.

1. Bored by casual small talk. Highly intelligent people are not usually interested in trivial topics such as celebrities, sport or gossip in general. These people usually choose to discuss topics more to their liking such as philosophy, ideas, controversial opinions, politics, sociopolitics amongst others.

2. Are extremely diligent with their words. Highly intelligent people tend to be very restrained with their words and they think very well before they speak.

3. Tend to be a bit socially awkward. By having a more developed intelligence than most, these people tend to compensate with a less developed emotional and social intelligence.

4. Have some difficulty in making decisions. Intelligent people, before making a decision, think about all the possibilities, all the angles and problems that a decision can bring.

5. Mind constantly seeks to be exercised. Their mind never rests and it seeks to constantly solve complex problems or think about hypothetical situations This is why many highly intelligent people suffer from insomnia at bedtime.

Here is something to do if you are remotely intelligent.

1. Fix yourself before you try to fix anyone else.
2. People are comfortable in their miserable life.
3. You will be 10 times happier if you forgive your parents and stop blaming them for your problems. Or leave them behind.
4. Marry the right partner. The right one will help you build your physical, mental and financial strength.
5. Make friends who are ambitious, motivated and strong where you are weak.
6. Be old enough to realize that no one cares. Chase what you believe is right and just.
7. Seek zero advice from people who are not where you want to be in life.
8. Your circle of friends should discuss business ideas, family and success more. Not politics, religion and celebrity gossip. There goes the Persuader, Promoter, Investigaror and Agent!
9. Spend a few hours working on your business and dreams. Working for someone elsr will only get you enslaved forever.
10. Invest in a home library. Nothing is more toxic than wasting your time watching the news, Netflix or scrolling social media.
11. Create opportunities for yourself. No one will ever come to save you from your problems.
12. Be mature enough to realize weekends are not for partying. Use it to build a life/career you want.
13. If your friends only call you when they need your help, then it's high time to change your priorities in life.
14. No matter how much you trust your close friends and family, let no one know everything about you.

Here is a neat explanation of what you might find in the IQ 'bands'.

=>145
» You maintained good grades throughout college without much difficulty. In at least 1–2 subjects, you excelled far beyond the average, scoring in the 95th percentile with consistent ease. You are attracted to graduate studies and read independently on topics you enjoyed.
» If you did not excel in school, you were uncommonly talented in another area (sport, art, etc.). You were self taught in this area, learning by example and intuition, until someone recognized your ability and encouraged it (hopefully).
» You can predict what a person is going to say after just a few words and you can infer their beliefs based on what they say. This means that you are often bored, waiting for someone to finish a sentence when you knew from the start what the point would be. You recognize common arguments people use and reuse over and over again.
» You perform well in situations that require you to process a lot of information rapidly. Even in a fast food or retail position, you complete tasks and learn skills much faster than your peers.
» You read quickly and enjoy reading. You can easily articulate your thoughts in speech. You have opinions which others regard as novel, controversial, or interesting.
» You have a hard time finding friends. The friends you do have are intelligent and you spend a lot of time talking about ideas or working on projects together.
» You are likely to be a Perfectionist, Enhancer, Agent, Investigator, Inspirational, Promoter or Developer.

85-144
∥ You do not really think about your intelligence that much. It is perfectly sufficient for most tasks and is rarely a hindrance. There are some things you know you simply cannot do, e.g. high level mathematics or writing a best selling novel. But these things have no to appeal to you anyway.
∥ If you worked hard in school, you received good grades. If you did not work hard, you got bad grades. Overall, academic performance is more a measure of will than intellect at this level. Average intelligence students can get straight As if they put in the work, but are not likely to excel at the graduate level and beyond. School is rarely easy but is usually manageable.
∥ You have a broad social network. Even if you are introverted, it is not hard to find people to whom you relate and can have conversations. If you are extraverted, you fit in most places without trouble and have many friends.
∥ You have at least one talent or exceptional skill, but it required time and effort to develop.
∥ A small number of people are markedly smarter than you, which may make you feel insecure. However, you will probably see more clearly than the intelligent person does themselves regarding how they are deficient in other areas.
∥ You are likely to be a Persuader, Objective Thinker, Achiever, Results; maybe Practitioner, Specialist, Counselor, Director or Appraiser.

=<84
« You hated school, experiencing it as a set of arbitrary and mysterious challenges with no clear value. You do not really understand why you had to learn mathematics, or read the famous novels. You were very happy to leave high school, at least the academic side. The prospect of university level education is intimidating at best, repellant at worst.
« You prefer to take direction from someone else at work and at school. You are a follower. In your personal life, you often seek advice from parents and mentors, even for simple matters. You prefer this advice to be highly detailed and "step by step" rather than broad and theoretic. If you are too proud to seek help, you are often frustrated when your actions do not produce the results you expected. You may have failed relationships or made grave financial errors in your past. You may fall for scams and con artists.
« You place high value on human relationships. You are more likely to enjoy spending time with family and friends than on solitary intellectual activities such as reading, writing or practising an instrument. Sitting with a group and having a normal, pleasant conversation is very engaging.
« You often make mistakes at your job / undertakings, even when you try your best. Your manager / supervisor gets mad and it stresses you out, but it still happens again and again. This kind of humiliation is possibly the most painful aspect of low intelligence.
« If you are overloaded with information at a stressful moment, you tend to shut down and withdraw completely.
∥ You may be regarded as having played too much football without a helmet.
« You are not obviously talented at anything in particular. Even in your hobbies, you are not exceptional. This is unless you have an exceptional work ethic - and below average people have accomplished exceptional things.
« This page indicates that no one is under 84. Oxor™'s best explanation is that official tests using Disc or Myers Briggs (for which Oxor™ is not licensed) are not performed on low intelligence individuals. Oxor™'s experience is that employers pay for most of these and are unlikley to have someone with a mental disability or an entry level worker take the tests. You are therefore likely to be a Practitioner, Specialist, Counselor, Director or Appraiser based on these criteria. This section could well be the description of a Practitioner, even!

Here are 7 signs you are smarter than most people.

» You do not feel the need to prove yourself to anyone. Even if you are killing it, it makes no sense to you to let everyone know about it.
» You can easily ignore hate directed towards you. It stops bothering you.
» You set high regard for others. You stop interrupting people when they talk; you actually listen and understand before responding.
» You find it easy to explain things to people in a way they would understand.
» You learn things quickly and sometimes even independently, all on your own.
» You stop getting offended by differing viewpoints. You stop getting defensive about your own mistakes and, instead, find it easy to accept them.
» You do not think you are smart. Paradox. You feel as if you have a lot left to learn.

E. Hunter's comments on the top two - Perfectionist and Enhancer:

1. The Perfectionist is the smartest but the second placed Enhancer is probably the better all-rounder. The Enhancer is easily the better manager, by a long way.
2. The Enhancer has far better application of intelligence and a better way to apply systems. They also have a key characteristic that the Perfectionist does not.
3. This characteristic is the ability to be strategic and think ahead with a detailed plan. That is a very rare and special gift. It is no secret that the Perfectionist is very intelligent but is generally unable to plan very well.
4. It just is not in their programming. They always need more time to do more research. They can be hopelessly impractical and cannot see the big picture. e.g. The software has been written according to the functional specification would satisfy the Perfectionist. The fact that it does not work is irrelevant. The Enhancer would not take this stance under any circumstances.
5. The Enhancer is a little less flexible, a little less imaginative, but their ability to plan, plot and prepare means they can bring their smarts much better to bear than the Perfectionist can. Chess, widely considered the ultimate braniac game, is the domain of the Enhancer. They are the cunning strategist.
6. The Enhancer is also more often a generalist compared with the Perfectionist. While the Perfectionist may really love their personal areas of interest, they usually only know a handful of topics in any real depth.
7. The Enhancer likely knows fewer topics, but actually understands them in a systematic and disciplined way. They actually fully internalize the subjects while the Perfectionist just likes to have the knowledge without actually mastering many to the degree needed for application. And that is the issue. It must be mastered whereas the Enhancer will bring about a system that actually works today.
8. The Perfectionist is so intelligent but yet they are so disorganized. This is because intelligence and the Big 5 personality trait of Conscientiousness are not positively correlated. It is Intelligence and the trait of Openness are positively correlated. However, Conscientiousness has the most to do with a person’s organizational skills. If a 'J' e.g. the Enhancer, there is a strong correlation with High Conscientiousness. If a 'P' e.g. the Perfectionist, there is a strong correlation with Low Conscientiousness. So, the Enhancer will always be more organized than the Perfectionist.
9. It is true that a Perfectionist may be able to translate a document from English to Greek 40 years since studying Greek but not be able to fill the windscreen washer bottle in their car. That is a real example.
10. A person can still be an Enhancer if they are not as intelligent as indicated on this page but still have all the traits. This is because two primary traits of intelligence are curiosity (the seeking of answers or changes) and the recognition of patterns. The Enhancer does both automatically, without even having to expend effort. Therefore, even the dullest Enhancer is likely to gain knowledge and understand patterns and logical filtration with very little hard work required. They are born learners and masterers, even if they come with very weak drive.
11. These two are both very intelligent but in slightly different ways:
Both have amazing academic intelligence but the difference is made by how they use this knowledge.
The Perfectionist is focussed on abstract matters, so they are brilliant theorists (Albert Einstein), whereas for the Enhancer applicability is of utmost importance and can become, for example, great inventors (Nicola Tesla).
It is simply not fun for the Enhancer to not put their ideas into practice and actually have a finished product, watching their creation take life so to say. If it is something that cannot take a concrete form, they lose interest and consider it a waste of time to spend their energy on it. (e.g. An incoming President of the woeful Queensland Justices Association who left the organization.)
The Perfectionist has no desire of acting on their ideas (and are actually quite poor achievers if they are pushed to do so) because for them it is fun to just develop these theories in their minds. They are “the brain” behind it all but it needs to be someone else who actually does the job, if it can even be done in the practical world (their imagination knows no boundaries). (e.g. A genius in software development spent 15+ years full time coming up with a solution to digital music piracy but the project may well have succeeded if operational just 18 months earlier than it was. This was because there was always just one more item to finish that "would only take ten minutes" but would take three months or building a file upload program from scratch when FileZilla was available, free and superior.)
12. Summary:
Perfectionist: AAA academic intelligence; AAA abstract thinking; ZZZ practical skills; non-finisher; abjectly hopeless manager.
Enhancer: AAA academic intelligence; AAA practical skills; ZZZ abstract thinking; excellent finisher; fantastic manager, particularly when given free reign.

E. Hunter's comments on the top four - Perfectionist, Enhancer, Agent and Investigator:

1. You cannot pull them into humdrum storms, chit chat and small talk. They get bored with that and even loathe them. Start an interesting topic and they will dive in as if they had always been there.
2. They do not waste time doing superficial, uninteresting, usual, common things that do not benefit them in the long run, whether at work, or at meetings, discussions, debates or even fights. They know when to lose in order to gain later, or lose less in order to gain more. Their calculation is unnerving and not always obvious.
3. They will gladly let you be wrong if they think correcting you is not beneficial in any way. So if one is asking for casual advice the intelligent will usually say very little or nothing at all.
4. They have different and sometimes (well, most of the times) weird opinion/ ideas and questions that can unsettle most people and even irritate them.
5. They are hazardous for team work and more hated than respected for their singularity. If you are intelligent and highly respected- you must be a top gun.
6. Watch out. They usually break rules, try to make their own rules and will question authority, systems, governing bodies.
7. They have two personalities: one for general people so they do not appear as snobs, the other (the real one) for those people and situations where they can afford to speak their mind.
8. They cannot handle common boring mundane stuff and they cannot understand how others can actually handle it with pleasure and without complaints.
9. No matter what they do, whether eating, bathing, waking, watching TV, their minds are always at work trying to figure out the greater questions that may or may not have to do with worldly success at all. Their brains are always on the run.
10. One may watch a movie and cannot get past how terribly hot the actor / actress looked; they will be thinking about the abstract plot of the film, raising questions from the story and finding its answers. One may admire a monument, while they will be wondering over the significance of the monument and how it may have affected people in past times.
11. They like to answer the hows and whys, rather than be awed by the finished product. Sometimes for no other reason than to connect and appreciate the works of another intelligent mind that put just as much intelligence and thought into their project.

12. Here are some signs that a person has far above average intelligence:
‡ Witty,
‡ High-level thinking,
‡ Focussed thinking,
‡ Scattered-tangential thinking,
‡ Picks up ideas and concepts without much prompting or training,
‡ High emotional intelligence and observational skills,
‡ Original in creativity,
‡ Understands cause and affect,
‡ Sees the details most people gloss over,
‡ What people may not realize about Einstein is that he was actually pretty witty with a tinge of batshit crazy.

E. Hunter's comments on the Enhancer and Investigator:

1. The Enhancer and Investigator are rare because intelligence itself is rare. IQ comes first and Behaviour Pattern second. Both belong in the top four for IQ.

2. Not only do both have an extremely high IQ, they also have very good survival skills. Growing up as either can be sheer hell.

3. Neither are very social with the Enhancer not exactly known to be a social animal. And yet Homo sapiens has been a social animal for all its evolutionary lifespan. Both marry late and get only a few children and many never have any. Yet intelligence is very much hereditary.

4. Being either is not likely to make them popular during teenage years. (Being a Perfectionist is even more painful!) And yet the teenage years are the formative age where one’s self image, attitude towards the society, attitude towards people in general and socialization occurs. Many, if not most, Enhancers and Investigators have bruises and deep scars from those years. The Enhancer is seen as a loner or a villain, while the Investigator is seen as a dreamer or a crank. Neither of those images are likely to attract the opposite sex and make them popular amongst the opposite sex. One has to settle on who qualifies and it is not likely that the genes which bear the Enhancer and Investigator traits will be passed on.

5. Moreover, both types share the same stress function (Extraverted Sensing) which is a good stress function when acting alone but not a good one when acting in a group. The evolutionary pressure is against both. Internally broken of both patterns are likely to have a death wish and act dangerously and take risks that 'healthy' people would not take. Both the Enhancer and Investigator patterns are grossly over-represented at a parachutists' drop zone.

6. The Enhancer is the rarest pattern amongst women (Approx. 1 in 200).

E. Hunter's - How can you tell if someone has a high IQ or they are just a person who has filled their brain box with lots of information?

The difference between IQ and a filled brain box.

There is a big difference. The person with the higher IQ is able to assimilate what they learn and synthesize it. They comprehend it, take complex information and distill it into everyday language and simplify it for others, together with learning and absorbing new material and skills.

This is accomplished far more quickly that those of average or lower IQ and are able to problem solve quickly as well. Those with higher IQ will come up with new ideas, be creative with solutions and possess the ability to see patterns and connections between and among disparate ideas.

KEY CONCEPT TO UNDERSTAND: Memorization skill is not a measure of IQ. Some people are really good at memorizing information. That is not a measure of intelligence. It Is a brain function that excels with use and practice. Consider actors: they must memorize reams of lines for their roles. Many actors are not terribly bright people. That is easy to observed when they are themselves. (And consider that when the Hollywood types lecture the rest of the world on politics: memorizing lines is not a factor in intelligence.)

Some people with mid to low IQ are very good at taking tests that simply require memorization. They are good at game shows too — they are walking trivia buffs. But observe them if you are lucky enough to be around them on a steady basis. Watch that Mr. Trivia is not that bright with daily living, their job or in interactions. These memorization types can score well on tests and it gives a false impression of intelligence — a false positive.

Oxor™ is all about observation. The key will be to observe how they use the information, understand it, distill it or problem solve in daily life. Watch for how quick and fluid their mind is. If they are just a game show trivia type, the information is meaningless — it is virtually robotic and easy to observe.

The first patterns that come to mind are the Idealists - the potential Social Justice Warriors and Wokes - Persuader, Promoter, Investigator and Agent in that order (which are lower IQ to higher.

Look at woke behaviour and who follows rules. The first four. The Persuader advocates the COVID rules; the Promoter does not notice the rules until they have been fined; the Investigator will honour the rules until they get in the way while the Agent will try to escape the rules. None will question that the rules are draconian!

General rule followers. The second four:
1. Objective Thinker: Blends Introverted Sensing with Extraverted Thinking to create a highly conventional and mechanistic personality. They are often preoccupied with upholding the mechanisms of the status quo.
2. Practitioner: Blends Introverted Sensing with Extraverted Feeling to create a highly conventional and humanistic personality. They are often preoccupied with upholding the social status quo and tending to those closest to them.
3. Appraiser: Blends Introverted Sensing with Extraverted Feeling. Talented organizers and tenders of people who love conventional ways.
4. Director: Blends Introverted Sensing with Extraverted Thinking. Efficient managers of people that rely mostly on Introverted Sensing. Most comfortable with pre-existing rules, guidelines and objectives.

The last eight - Developer, Results, Inspirational, Counselor, Specialist, Achiever, Perfectionist and Enhancer will go with convention (i.e. a rule of conduct or behaviour, such as the wearing of clinically unproven masks) will usually have a reaction that will show up as kind of an irritant or not figure into the decision process at all.

E. Hunter's - How can we tell if a person is an actual intelligent person or just someone who is trying to act intelligent?

Key sayings:"La culture c’est comme la confiture, moins on en a, plus on l’étale." loosely translates to: "Culture is like marmalade; the less you have, the more you spread it." If 'culture' is replaced with 'connaissance' (= knowledge) and this transforms somewhat into:
"An empty vessel makes the most noise."

Separate the wheat from the chaff: Intelligence is extremely qualitative and refined; as opposed to quantitative and cheap. Eloquent thoughts go through time and toil, profound and meaningful opinions go through a very thorough thought process. Like a fabric of exquisite quality, there is a significant amount of labour and craftsmanship intensively and patiently weaved and sewn, drawing a seamless and timeless piece, crafted with the finest materials that takes time to procure. Profound thoughts takes time.

Intelligent people in general spend far more time thinking than they do talking. A lot of their qualitative thoughts are deep-rooted in intent. Extraverts with a high level of intelligence are most likely to lie. In a study of Polish researchers they most often chose a strategy in which they used deception to achieve their goals. People with higher intelligence find it easier to lie on tests to get employment. Introverts (regardless of the level of intelligence) and extraverts with lower IQ used this strategy less often.

People who pretend to be intelligent spend a significant amount of time producing quantitative thoughts more than they think: In essence, they talk a lot more than they think.
They are much like a cheap factory that produces goods in bulk, a pretender would mass-produce the easiest and most convenient answers that offer the most set-given, cookie-cutter, one-fits-all kind of approach. There is no true measurement of context because there has been no time spent pondering on the situation with an intent to inspect and understand. Like a cheap sweatshop, the garments they produce are made from the cheapest fabric they can find, by the least qualified labourers, paid with the lowest wages, sold at the cheapest prices one can find.
Regarding the unintelligent, you will get far less than a shirt. Their opinions hold little precision and eloquence and are as cumbersome and unintuitive as can be. It is easy to spot a thought-process with little intent to give a thoughtful response. One who intends to simply say more by appearing bigger with the sheer volume of what they have to say. This is a a strong indicator of bolstering self-image. Among the mediocre, gish-gallop and voracious audacity is mistaken as confidence and assertiveness.
People who pretend to be intelligent sucessfully pull it off and people are convinced. It becomes a situation of 'the blind leading the blind'.

A more intelligent person is one who usually asks a lot more questions. They are spending a lot of time inspecting the situation and comprehending nuance in order to formulate a large framework of knowledge. One who is thoughtful in the way they offer advice does so not when they get the quickest window of opportunity, but when the situation calls for it.
A sure sign of intelligence can be seen from one who does not display themselves as an intellectual for the world to see, but as one who acts with necessity and intent. There is no underlying need or ulterior motive to look superior, because they are too busy investing themselves in solving the actual situation or giving a meaningful opinion.
Ultimately, it is ironic how the one who seems most generous with their opinions is not actually generous at all, as there is a hidden transaction for the need to look superior from these exchanges. It is the more intelligent ones who are a lot more thoughtful with their responses, as they are more concerned about getting things right and producing quality, to an extent of unrequited benefitting on their part. By being frugal with their words, the truly intelligent are more generous with their thoughts as they ensure that you are leaving the conversation with a meaningful takeaway — at least to the good extent they can offer.

E. Hunter's - The best overall thinker:

The best overall thinker must be sharp minded and have critical thinking skills.

The first patterns that come to mind are - Enhancer, Perfectionist, Developer and Inspirational.

The Enhancer's cognitive functions are the sharpest, as both studies and their reputation show. The acuteness of this pattern is prevalently known.

The Enhancer prefers to examine the bigger picture as opposed to small and specific details. Critical thinking, exploring an outer perspective and focussing on abstract information, as opposed to only concrete statistics, enhances the proficiency of completing a task or correctly analyzing it. The Enhancer is the master of this ability.

E. Hunter's - Risks of being smart:

1. If you are really smart (highly intelligent / intellectual or more), 49.5% of people mistake you for being stupid or mad and 49.5% try to harm you out of sheer jealousy, rivalry and insecurity. The remaining 1% who really understand you and appreciate you for who you are may take you a long time to come across.

2. You constantly have to behave like an ignorant person in order to appear normal in front of those 99%. Underplaying / concealing yourself becomes your protection shield.

3. If you do something good they (your colleagues) get the credit; if they do something bad you get the blame.

4. They do something microscopically good and you appreciate it generously; you do something enormously good and they do not even see it. Shrugging it away and forgetting becomes your habit.

5. Friends are hard to find. You are too weird for people; they are too weird for you.

6. You tend to feel lonely in a crowd. People think that you are friendless and pity you for your supposed loneliness. When you are together with ‘friends’ you feel lonely and smothered.

7. In company, you either have to keep your mouth shut or just talk about the weather. Your intellectual hunger is hard to be fully satisfied.

8. You get more stressed out with stupidity and ignorance of people around you than with problems and difficulties. Expressing your opinion is almost always viewed as rebellion, chaffing, indisciplined or disrespectful.

9. People assume that you are stupid to think you are smart when you never really thought you were smart. Then there are teeny-weeny things you are not good at and they flood you with sarcasm: ‘Oh, you can’t even do this!’ Who the hell should explain to them that smart people are not necessarily smart at everything, especially teeny-weeny?

10. Chances are you might not utilise all of your glittering grey cells in a shining superficial career which according to your higher keener perception may be just a filthy rat race. Rat racers naturally think otherwise.

E. Hunter's - Observable signs a person is not as smart as they think:

Step 1. Observe their reaction and how they behave when things do not work out for them or when the situation does not go their way.

Step 2. Reaction Option - Not as smart as they think. Those who think that they are smarter/better/more talented etc. than they really are will constantly complain about how they have bad luck, how the failure is others’ fault, unfairness in the system etc. Those who overestimate themselves tend to try and justify the failure and about how it was not their fault. These people avoid taking responsibility for themselves by making excuses. e.g. Practitioner, Counselor, Director and Appraiser.

Step 3. Reaction Option - Truly smart. Those who are truly smart are also humble enough to see their own shortcomings and to use each failure as a learning opportunity and try to use that failure to find avenues for improvement. They are also more likely to succeed because they spend more time working and trying to figure stuff out rather than whinging and complaining. e.g. Perfectionist and Enhancer.

-
 

E. Hunter's - Observable signs a person is as smart as they think:

Step 1. Observe the person and decide whether they are Extravert or Introvert.

Step 2. If Extravert, go no further. They are likely to be Not as smart as they think.

Step 3. If Introvert - Some may be truly smart but ist is not obvious. Most introverts who are mindful of others will not admit or show that they are smart, intelligent and very observant. They will keep a low profile and do not advertise themselves to the world. They enjoy being smart, discreet and pragmatic because it is considered safe and emotionally healthier. An intelligent, well adjusted, authentic person does not boast or gloat about their personal achievements, qualifications and level of intelligence to impress others. Some Objective Thinkers qualify in this regard. Oxor™ thinks that the Objective Thinkers are harshly dealt with in some of the external rankings shown on this page.

E. Hunter's - Observable four traits that indicates that a person is as smart as they think:

Trait 1. They are more likely to be Introvert .First of all: Introversion and IQ are not correlated. It is all about creativity: One of the biggest traits of intelligence is creativity but what is creativity really about? It's about connecting the dots. Introverts prefer to work independently and solitude can be a catalyst to innovation.

Trait 2. A person who uses a high vocabulary as someone who is literate and smart. This is nothing new. Vocabulary is the best predictor of IQ. In other words, lexical knowledge simply put predicts the intelligence of someone simply by the fact that if you read a sentence and understand every single word that is written you can then combine them and create meaning. In the end it really comes down to the impact of the words used and not simply the usage of big and complicated words.

Trait 3. Choice of conversation. "Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people." Eleanor Roosevelt.

Trait 4. Openness to experience and curiosity. A nice comparison experience is simply by visualising an artery full of shit. If it is full it will clog and get blocked and you might end up having a heart attack. But if your arteries are free and open you will live a much healthier life. It is similar to that but with your mind: Your mind is not clogged with prejudices, ideologies and preconceived paradigms, it is open to unusual and perhaps revolutionary ideas. One easy way of identifying a curious person is if they likes listening more than talking. (The Introvert).
