But call yourself smart if it is your name.

What should they call themselves then? Retarded?

What is your point here?

Yeah! Good grades don't mean anything! Because studying things and having a knowledge on a wide verity of subjects doesn't mean you're any smarter then anyone else! It just means you know more....

I was a B average student and it really isnt hard to get As if you do all the homework.

Its a bullshit system. Knowing bits and pieces of everything does not make you smarter either.

You get out what you put into it. If you wanted a challenge you should have taken challenging classes and learned some critical thinking/study skills instead of just making the grade.

I never really actually ever heard someone refer to themselves as being "smart", usually it is used as a compliment or sacasm

Oh yeah I just thought about that. What if you take honors / accelerated learning classes and get good grades? Does that still mean you're not smart if you're putting in twice the effort every other student gets?

I still don't understand your point sequenced.

not to mention having the will power to do all of the meaningless homework, in hope of getting a scholarship to get some sort of head start on doing what you want to do, is also a pretty smart choice of action in my opinion...

I'm too tired to make a good point. But I want to, so instead of just ignoring this thread and going to sleep I want you all to know that my post would have been here.

Whenever I got good grades in school I never called myself smart ._.
Because I have never thought of myself as "smart". I think of myself as unbelievably average.
I've had other people call me smart because I never had anything below an A or an A+ in classes like Math and all of my History classes (I had like 3), but I disagreed with them no matter what they said.
I just like getting my homework done during class or before school was over for the day, and I paid insanely close attention during class is all haha.

One of the key teachings in Philosophy is that you don't need a formal education to partake. Just a willing mind.

What is smart? Someone less tired than me can make that argument.
