The result should be about 50/50.

Okay guys, who is answering dishonestly? It's statistically improbable that almost everyone here is smarter than average.

also more likely smart people will want to answer something like this, also no definition of the kind of smart you're asking about, also not like anyone knows exactly where the average is and where they are on the scale if it's even quantifiable, osv

the more you care to learn the more you understand how little you actually know; many dumb people think they're smarter than what they really are and the result of this poll clearly shows that

Perhaps this community consists of people who are, on average, smarter than the average.

The question "Are you smarter than average?" is not posed in a scientific way, or in other words it's not distinct enough to expect people to interpret the question the same way.

People would often see their own intelligence and fail to see others, which means they could answer truthfully and yet could more than average or even the median answer yes.

More on topic however, wouldn't computer nerds be expected to be smarter than average? Even if interpreted in a more scientifically measurable way (such as IQ or whatever would be appropriate)

Personally I wouldn't say this community is very intelligent. There are some intellectuals but most of them wouldn't understand some simple ideas as for example this very post I'm writing - because of the lack of ability to think outside the box.

I wouldn't call intellectuals the smartest people either, because being an intellectual doesn't mean one in any way is responsible enough to live sustainably, neither environmentally, socio-economically or healthwise. It's a lot smarter imo to live a balanced and responsible life.
