I am either feeling quite stupid, very smart, completely confused, or a combo of the three after reading the OP.

That answers that question. DJ is stupid.

I like hanging out with more intelligent people than me. The conversation is quite interesting. Especially when you get a dialog going.

Right now, I can't even process that I need to eat dinner, let alone think about how smart I am or who's smarter than me and why, when or where.

I conserve my brain power, for unleashing the full power of my brain power spells disaster for my body since it couldn't possibly keep up with my brain.

I speak with unique authority on this subject. I was once quite smart, perhaps even brilliant. I wrote tons of complicated software that did amazing things few people could imagine much less understand. Perhaps I even invented the internet, I don't really recall. Many bicycle crashes, two adult children, and Management Training later, I'm now Quite Stupid.
I have these observations from my experience:
- Higher IQ = higher blood pressure
- Higher IQ = higher maintenance
- Higher IQ = less happiness
- Higher IQ = less fun
Fill a room with smart people, give them a problem, and they'll argue, form splinter groups, and arrive at conflicting solutions that amount to a big ball of snot.
Fill a room with stupid people, give them a problem, and they'll go out in the hall, snatch a smart person, extract a solution from the genius, toss them back out in the hall, and have a party.

I've got a pretty equal amount of common sense & intelligence. Enough to get by, but probably not enough to be considered smrt.

my mouth definitely runs faster than my brain, and lots of stupid spills out.
