About This Quiz

Ever really thought about what it means to be smart? Like, is it legit just learning stuff in school and being able to repeat it later on? Is it experiencing things in real life, going to new places, doing new things and just getting more about how the world works? Is it algebra? There are probably a lot of different ways to be smart. A good thing to remember, though, is that no one knows everything. No one can. So there's no shame it not knowing stuff. But be honest, it's kind of cool to know you're the smartest person in a room, right? Or to flex on some people with some knowledge you have that they don't? There's no shame in that! Better to show off knowledge than stuff that doesn't really mean anything anyway. So you have to wonder, are you the smartest person on Snapchat?

Now, not knowing everyone on Snapchat means it's a tough question to answer, but if you're looking to prove your stuff, you're in luck! We've got the perfect quiz for you to flex on. If you think you're in the upper deck of Snapcahat genius, give it a try and see where you stand!
