    People Who Proclaim "I AM Smart"

    It's been my experience that the people who say "I'm smart" in one form or another, usually aren't.  It seems to derive from hearing "you're a dumbass" frequently.  Maybe it would be more accurate to say they lack a certain amount of wisdom.  The Socratic story about his being...
