Let's be honest. You might not want to brag to everyone, but you are pretty smart. You know it, your friends know it, the people that you work with know it. But when it comes to being a genius, that is a whole other ballgame.

Some people might score really high on those, but have no common sense at all, while others will bomb an IQ test, and totally slay when it comes to life. Have you ever met someone who is really smart when it comes to writing and language, but can't put together a chair that they bought from Home Depot? Is that person a genius?
