am i a douche?

Postby idfatq » Thu Feb 03, 2011 10:45 pm

deep deep down inside, i feel smarter than those who have an LSAT score lower than mine. to be fair, i admit to myself that those who have an LSAT score higher than mine are smarter than me.

the thing is, i don't feel less smart than those who have a higher GPA than mine. nor do i feel smarter than those who have a lower GPA than mine.

at least i'm consistent? anyone else do this in their heads? at least i can admit it anonymously on an internet message board (yes, sarcasm). cheers

It makes sense. Just realize that the LSAT tests a very limited subset of "intelligence", whatever that is, and that the statistical variation in scores is pretty significant.

But yeah, if you said that IRL, it would be pretty douchey.

I refuse to admit whether I agree with you. Suffice it to say that there is definitely a correlation between LSAT score and the view of what it correlates to.

Now this is a correlation we can all agree on :P

There is some correlation, but the LSAT doesn't test for common sense. I think one's GPA is more a reflection of determination and hard work.

You're not a douche for thinking this privately, but you may be a douche by virtue of posting it on a public forum and then asking "Am I a douche?"

No, you're not consistent. Consistency would require you to remove the word "probably", and admit outright that you feel less intelligent than someone who scores higher than you.

About 90% of the posters on this board would be considered a douche by the average person. It's all relative, but at least you're in good company.

I think anyone who feels that they need to ask if they're a douche is a douche. Likewise, anyone who ever asks themselves "am I a douche?" is a douche. I realize that this makes me a douche. Therefore, as an expert on douchiness, I feel qualified to say: you are a douche. But so are most of us.

In a related story, I once tried to book a hotel in France, and was asked if I wanted a room "with or without douche." Needless to say, I was quite perplexed until I realized that "douche" is french for "shower." This was not something my one semester of college French prepared me for.

Wouldn't it be La grande douche? Seriously, I dunno. I would think douche was feminine, but French guys are pretty out there, too...

on second thought, yeah, you're right. I guess I just wanted to know if there were other douches like me. I should rename the thread: Are there other douches like me?

looking at the replies so far, looks like I wasn't alone.

I don't know about determination and hard work or sycophantic tendencies... I think I just think that way because we don't go to the same schools, take the same courses with the same professors who use the same grading scale. If I knew someone who took the same courses as I did at the same school and had a lower GPA, I'd think I was smarter than him. If it was someone with a higher GPA, I'd think he/she was smarter than me.

Hm, do you really think this topic deserves a lock? I didn't belittle anyone specifically. It'd be one thing if I said "Har har everyone with sub 160s are dumb"... I'm just asking if my line of thinking is unique or not. I didn't intend on offending anyone.
