    I only lack 3 trates:

    In my school, the short peeps are smarter ‘cause all the tall peeps are only focusing on sports and most of my friends who are under 135cm, are actually smart. But my friend who’s taller usually fail. And my friend who’s left handed can’t even think of something to draw in a drawing competition so she just draws Saturn and put a bunch of trees around it.

    No offense, but I do not agree with this. First of all, short people are very very smart. Next, the tests for siblings I feel are not accurate. I am the youngest, but that does not mean that I am dumb!

    Anyway not all of this signs can really tell how smart you are .the way you can know approximately and not exactly how smart you are is to compete with some one. IQ tests can't really work because they don't measure the time,how close is your answer to the correct option and your brain is not gonna use the same amount of energy when you barely use it (excepting for your sub conscious part of your brain) than when you challenge your brain also there is different types of intelligence like humoristic or artistic intelligence and different correct answers to one single problem when most of the IQ tests only concentrate in one. plus a lot of IQ tests require you to understand and have some knowledge about the question

    You guys shouldn't worry about intelligence cuz there's a lot of geniuses in this world than you probably think but some of them are super lazy
    (Not all of them)
    And the smartest ones are (normally) not the ones that effort the most.
    And to those folks who are like Iam smarter than most people because I can understand better jokes,questions,and what people mean that not always can be the case and also depends on what way you think and how you look at the problems an jokes.
