The smartest person

You are definitely

In the wrong room!

Michael Dell: Never Be The Smartest Person In The Room

Try never to be the smartest person in the room. And if you are, I suggest you invite smarter people or find a different room.

In professional circles it’s called networking. In organizations it’s called team building. And in life it’s called family, friends, and community. We are all gifts to each other, and my own growth as a leader has shown me again and again that the most rewarding experiences come from my relationships. ~University of Texas, 2003

The same goes for blogging, I’m sure!

Hey!? But what about you? You wiseass smart ass!?

Well I’m either a Daffy Chicken or a not-so-cute Swedish Meatball!

But in conclusion:

“The only source of knowledge is experience.”

Albert Einstein

IQ is just one of the intelligences: limited as it is, in my opinion. And we all have something of our own to offer the world!

There are musical, artistic, sports, writing and maybe one of the most important for life success: emotional intelligence.

Me? I just have limited wise-ass intelligence!

  1. I may often think I’m the smartest lol, but I’m always looking for other smarties. I think a childhood of being put in gifted classes may make you overestimate your own intelligence. Although on the other hand, perhaps not. I guess it depends on what you consider intelligence to be as you mentioned above, as IQ isn’t the end-all, be-all of intelligence.

    1. Right on!

      Chris Langan highlighted in Malcolm Gladwell’s book, Outliers, is considered to have one of the highest IQs in the world. His jobs included bartender, bouncer, farm hand, etc.

      He didn’t see the need to get degrees because he already knew more than the teachers themselves!

      His emotional intelligence was very low growing up in an abusive environment with alcoholic parents!

      1. I haven’t read Outliers yet, but it is definitely something I want to read. I’ve heard great things about it. I didn’t feel the need to get degrees either, although I probably would if college weren’t so ridiculously expensive.

  2. I was a computer consultant. I got a technical certificate in computer operation and programming. Within 3 years on the job I was a project manager at the U.S. State Department developing and leading projects of from 6 to 50+ computer types.

    All of my programming staff had computer and science degrees. Some even had master’s degrees and one even a PHD. I had to move the PHD off the project because he could not write a simple report program.

      1. “I know that I know nothing” is a saying derived from Plato’s account of the Greek philosopher Socrates. It is also called the Socratic paradox. The phrase is not one that Socrates himself is ever recorded as saying.

        This saying is also connected or conflated with the answer to a question Socrates (according to Xenophon) or Chaerephon (according to Plato) is said to have posed to the Pythia, the Oracle of Delphi, in which the oracle stated something to the effect of “Socrates is the wisest.”

  3. Totally agree. True giving and selfless relationships are what makes any team, friendship, family succeed. Knowledge and skills won’t work when there’s no heart in it. It’s what I’d been telling my boss every time the question comes when there’s no team work nor willingness to change. Inspiring motivation. Thanks
