Are you the "smart one" in your group of friends?

It's pretty funny, a little sad. In my group of friends, I'm always the 'smart one'. And it always comes up in the stupidest ways, like if we are playing a game or something you'd hear "oh we have him, we're definitely winning" I'm nothing like the kids on this forum but still considered smart.

    I am the smart one. All of my friends are smart, but they consider me the smart one. Whatever team I'm on, we win. My class is like, this is unfair.

    I'm actually one of the stupider ones in my "nerd" group of friends. But in most other contexts, I am indeed the "smart one".

    In most groups, yes, but in my "main" one, no, I'm just one of them.

    Only in math. And only like, 9 people really think of me as the smart one in that because otherwise no one really has a point where they're like "OMG, someone with skills in finding the normal! help!". In the close group of 3 (me, R, D) they think of me as the smart one, but not that they say it much but like, when I got into college and all they were like "you'll be riiiich, and they come buy us stuff"

    But I have one guy who I think of as the smart one, more like the politically aware with a large knowledge of history and love of random economic debates. Alas that knowledge is wasted since talking about any of that is just boring and we'd all rather go watch Transformers.

    I'm the one making odd jokes and comments, we all kinda are.

    No; my friends are all rather intelligent and knowledgeable people. I'm the quiet one, though if anyone were to consult me for writing or trivia I would probably be able to assist them very competently.

    I'm one of the smart ones, probs in the top two, in the group of friends with whom I eat, and after we made college decisions, I was mocked a little because the other really smart one (who was ranked a few spots above me) decided to stay at home with a full ride and a little more while I was deliberating between blahblahblah.
    A couple of my friends are, like, geniuses, but one lives in another state and the other one is not part of the main group, though I like him better than quite a few of the ones in it.
    My closest friend in the group considers me the smart one, but she always phrases it in a way that makes me feel awful.

    LOL I can definitely relate to that. It is true though, that my jeopardy/whatever review game we're playing that day team usually wins...

    Well in terms of ranking, I would be the valedictorian and one of my friends would be the salutatorian, so sometimes it balances out. Then again, sometimes we are both on the same team xD then people really complain!

    In most group settings, I am the smart one. There are a couple of groups that I am just one of the many smart people though.

    In my Asian group of friends I'm in the middle or the lesser intelligent one. In my American group of friends, yes, I am the smartest one.

    Yes. I have a really good memory and tend to pick up everything I read, so I know a lot of random crap, which people equate with intelligence.

    In my group, we are all smart. However, I am prbly thought of as the one who works hard for his A's but isnt as "naturally intelligent." In my school as whole, I am prbly looked at as a top student.
