Interesting. I could never say one is the smartest, no matter what I think. And, actually, I couldn't say it because they're all smart in their own ways and have their own strengths. (I mean, are we talking grades and/or SAT scores as some kind of measurement? There's so much more that goes into it, like being able to function well in society, no matter how "smart" you are. Darn, there I go again, qualifying everything so I never have to be definitive.)

Hmm, maybe it was because intelligence was so prized in my family growing up. A lot of competition there w/six kids. My mother didn't have that flair (or the time or energy, probably) to point out our distinct, outstanding qualities :) so it was a free-for-all.

Actually, everything was competitive growing up because my father was an extremely competitive man.

I think I'm getting somewhere here.
thanks,
antigua
