I'm not talking about academic achievement or IQ tests. I'm merely wondering about your perception of yourself.

It's kind of obvious that everyone will consider themselves intelligent, so whatever people say, they will tend to exaggerate their intellectual prowess.

Whoever votes more than "of average intelligence" is an egocentric, narcissistic... asshole.

However, I do agree with the OP. This way we can build a completely verified and honest statistic of average metalhead intelligence.

The problem with self perception is that its gravitated towards societal standards., i.e you define intelligence based on what people around u say and think intelligence is.,
i dont think its a good way of checking the intelligence of metalheads.
By loving this genre alone from other trashy music genres,that qualifies some degree of intelligence

I was only wondering about your opinion of yourself, nothing more.
Of course, most people will perceive themselves to be more intelligent and more beautiful than they actually are. Overrating yourself is a good self-esteem booster.

Where is the genius option. What makes you think that there are no metal heads that are in the genius range.

You have also forgotten Zombie class.

This is actually a very interesting topic. We would need to run the same poll on another music forum to compare results, though. I do not think this will tell anything about our intelligence, but simply getting information about our general self-perception is curious.

I consider myself very intelligent. I may over-estimate my mental prowess, but even accounting for that I'm probably well above average. (I don't think I would perform exceptionally well in an IQ test, though; I work better with language and propositions than shapes or numbers.) I won't explain myself, though, because that would be too egotistical even for me.

On another note, I don't like it when people underestimate themselves or make a show of false humility. There's nothing wrong with being smart and knowing it. You'll never achieve anything great if you don't think you can be exceptional. There's a difference between being confident but critical and self-evaluating, and being blind and arrogant.

It would depend on what environment that they're asked in. In an online metal forum I think you might be right.

Average I suppose... I don't think I'm dumb nor do I think I'm above anyone else.

The fact that two people chose "Not Intelligent At All" shows how reliable is the result of this vote.
