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!

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.

Actually, it's a very smart move to do two years at a community college and transfer to a four year college for the last two years, at a fraction of the cost than going all four years to a four year college. But OP is still a tool.

Because community college is a bargain! I saved on tuition, living expenses as I was able to live at home for the two years, earned an extra Associate of Arts degree, and all the credits were transferrable to university. My degree is ultimately just as valuable as an ivy league.

Personally, I'm bothered by the fact that they "comprehend subjects in a matter of seconds". The stuff I've been learning in the past years couldn't be comprehended into a few seconds even if you tried. Unless this person is able to take in a book page on a glance, just taking in all the necessary information should take you longer... I'd love to give this person some of Einsteins revolutionary papers and count the seconds.

Hey now, I went to a community college for my first two years because I dropped out of high school after the 9th grade. Community colleges help to empower people who were unsuccessful in high school whatever reason. I am finishing up my Masters this semester at one of the best universities in my state. That being said, when a kid told me at said community college that he had an IQ of 240, I fucking laughed in his face and told him if he did he wouldn't be smoking with us assholes at a community college. Only two other people are on record as have IQs within that range and those are contested.
