    Go take 3 different accredited IQ tests, average your scores and role with the number. Also remember your GPA has little to no bearing on your intelligence, just your commitment levels and test taking skills. True intelligence is being extremely creative, logical, and/or reflective.

    Night owls are too nervous to go to sleep. I feel like that anxiety happens because of being smarter. Idk but...I’m a night owl and I think too much to relax. Being smart makes you negative is what I mean.

    This video has missed the point of being "SMART". In this video they treat IQ and intelligence as the same. In fact this completely is completely untrue due to the fact that having a high IQ has little to do with your chance of being successful or being intelligence. If you want to be smart then watch or read something educational; becoming smart can be extremely hard for some people, BUT anybody can be smart if they are willing to work.

    Lots of correlations. Very little causation. I like how they put that at the end of the video, as if they aren't trying to imply causation.

    I'm almost all but not a drugy or an oldest. My older sibling is relatively an idiot while I'm smart. I think that the way we are raised determines if we will be more intelligent as we get older. I would watch youtube and did research and I'm in the 75th percentile for my grade lvl, freshmen.

    Seven and a half for me, the half because the apple thing was mildly amusing at best. I'm tall, first born, Virgin, night owl, overactive brain, ambidextrous more or less, and to the best of my knowledge I was breast fed almost exclusively. And at least I would like to think that I am pretty smart, compared to the average person at least.

    Education =\= smart (skill share) I have a iq of 130-140 (don't know for sure) but it seems like there could be a big link between confidence and intelligence as it seems my honors classes most if not all of my mates assume they failed only to get a 95% whereas I assume low and score low but higher than expected.

    I love your videos but this one was not your brightest content yet, a persons IQ at 21 is based on what that person experience through its life. A child neglected from education at compare to those who were exposed to reading and so on, will most likely out smart the other kid any day. In a rare occasion there some who thanks to some chemistry in their brain are able to pick and retain better memory then others but then tend to suffer when they get older. Don't listen to this video, you want to be smart? read books, take courses, and seek mentors. It's not rocket science....Unless if you're seeking to become a rocket scientist of course.
