If we appear smarter on average than some other forum, then it's probably because we're a little more grown up. Compared to any forum with a similar demographic, we aren't that different.

Whoa. I always wondered why all the older users say everyone here is 15 when it seems like almost all of the regulars are 19+

Of course we're average.
If we were smart we wouldn't have joined the Pit in the first place.

But we're not stupid because we're not leaving it.

Pretty much this.

The Pit went downhill around 2008.

It depends. Personally some of the dumbest things I've ever said I've said here on this forum. I'm sure others seem intelligent in their posts but they could secretly be derps.

I expect there's a normal distribution of intelligences, though I think if you only include the individuals with high posting frequencies, you'd probably see less extreme outliers.

I put 'dunno' because without talking to every single person that posts in the Pit, it's impossible for anyone to come up with an informed opinion on the average of it's intelligence.

the fact that the majority of us have secular views doesn't mean very much about our intelligence (unless you define intelligence that way, which would be stupid), regardless of what most people seem to think about agnostics/atheists... i know of people that blindly conform to atheism as well as theism

that being said, i know of very intelligent posters and very stubborn and misinformed posters that appear less that intelligent

2. more importantly, social desirability bias/people just fucking about messes with the polls. i'm guessing only a proportion of people actually told the truth in the polls, either voting too high or too low just for kicks.

3. those threads aren't nearly active long enough to even aspire to a good average

tl;dr shitty way to measure intelligence online

It's not really any smarter than any other forum here (many would probably say it's dumber, but I don't buy that). You've got a bunch of people of average intelligence, who are the majority, and then you've got minorities of smart people and stupid people.

I think what's happening is that you're remembering the smarter regulars here better because they've left an impression on you, whereas most probably haven't.

Cognitive biases can be a very powerful thing.

I actually think the pit has an above average portion of university undergrads and grads, mate.

But let's compare it to the rest of UG. I'd be very surprised if it was significantly higher.

And also, there's the fact that education doesn't necessarily correlate with intelligence.
