I'm, like, totally smarter than you are. [Adjusts glasses; laughs in geek]. My genius IQ is over 9,000, and I play 5D chess in my spare time. Mozart? Bach? Those are for amateurs. Me? I only listen to the music that planets make in our neighboring Andromeda Galaxy (it's 2.537 light-years away from Earth - bet you didn't know that). My favorite book is the Necronomicon. By the time I have breakfast every day, I've already come up with a hundred new fantastic ideas about how to improve the world, and my brain works at a 69.999% (recurring, of course) higher capacity than yours. I would've totally made a better protagonist than Yagami Light in Death Note. You wouldn't ever be able to comprehend my complex thoughts because, like, you're so beneath me, and I'm, like, super awesome. [Adjusts glasses again; uses inhaler]. Plebs.

Don't you just hate it when smart people start bragging about what high IQ they have when they're actually the complete opposite? There are those who think it's OK to be a show-off and an arrogant equus africanus asinus just because they know a bit of obscure trivia or have a niche hobby.

Bored Panda brings you this amazing compilation of the best memes about people with undeserved bragging rights and their sky-high IQ while coming off in the worst way possible. So put your smartass caps on, start scrolling and let us know which of these funny memes you loved best, and why. Upvote and share the smartest (pun not intended) ones!

As a general rule of thumb, people tend to vastly overestimate their abilities and believe themselves to be exceptions to rules and tendencies. Right now you’re probably thinking how you’re way smarter than I am, and I’m thinking the exact same thing. We believe we’re special and have far more intricate inner-lives than others. That’s quite normal because we experience life only from our own perspectives, and we’re privy only to our own thoughts. Nonetheless, a shocking 65% of all Americans believe themselves to be of higher-than-average intelligence, according to this study. Wow! That’s a big number!

This is hilarious! But frankly French does confuse me, since I don't know the rules of grammar or pronunciation. FYI, English is not my first language.

Yeah, but some other languages incorporate foreign words, and adjust them to fit with the language and spelling rules. For example, in Spanish, "telephone" is "telefono". They don't just spell it "telephone", then have to guess at pronunciation and spelling like us miserable English speakers. So, if we too the approach of the Spanish-speaking people, it would be "randayvoo".

I heard about spelling bee -competitions before I started studying any other language than my native. I didn't quite understand what was the point, in Finnish you pronounce as you write. Some years later I got it. English was okay, Swedish was okay, even German was okay but I got nightmares from trying to learn how to speak French :"D it was weird because my teacher definitely wouldn't have avatessani that way.

Linda Fox

English was OK - are you joking? English is the VERY WORST for knowing how to pronounce or spell a word you never saw/heard before! If I wrote "clow" would you know if it sounds like close or like cloud? If I said a word that sounds like loud but starts instead with a P, would you know if it's spelt poud, powd or powed? (both of those words are made up as far as I know)

Actually there are plenty of laws on the books for guns. Maybe if people/ kids would just be nicer to one another so many wouldn't have such issues and pent up anger at one another. Maybe parents should idk parent.. teach their kids proper coping skills, how to deal with anger in healthy ways, etc..

It’s easy to make fun of wannabe geniuses who shoot themselves in the foot with their comments, but real intelligence shouldn’t be made fun of. According to various studies, having a high IQ makes it more likely that you will be successful and rich and will live longer. Now, this doesn’t mean intelligence is the only factor that matters (and far from every scientist agrees with the conclusion about future success), but the importance of IQ shouldn’t be waved away, as though it means nothing.

Alfred Binet and Theodore Simon developed the first IQ (intelligence quotient) test in 1904, after the French government demanded they find a way to differentiate between lazy children and those with mental handicaps. The so-called Simon-Binet test, which was a combination of logical reasoning, finding rhyming words and naming objects, quickly became popular in the West.

The test was then modified in 1916, and called the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale. This became the standard IQ test used in the United States. Naturally, the test was revised and tweaked countless times, but it still remains popular to this day.

The IQ test didn’t make everyone happy, though. Psychologist David Wechsler thought the Stanford-Binet test was too limited, so in 1955 he created his own intelligence test: the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale or WAIS. In modern times we currently have the fourth incarnation of the test, known as WAIS-IV. Wechsler also made tests specifically for children and preschoolers.
