I feel shameful. Because, in reality, I am not smarter than anyone else on earth. Human abilities do not limit within some traditional fields of activities, but they cover lots of fields beyond our knowledge and imagination. Smart poets, artists, movie stars … have been considered as crazy guys few centuries or decades ago. Smart programmers, designers, admins…  of marvelous digital gadgets and products … have not yet been known to us. So, it is really immature to claim oneself as smarter or more stupid than other people.
Lower creatures remain unintelligent thoughout time and space. But human beings are an exclusive species with rational sense which enables them to change miraculously every day, every second. Each individual also has free will to educate himself and to conduct his life in the boundless realms known and yet to be known.
All human beings are equally intelligent. Yes, each one is incomparably smart in his own field of activity.

 Abdul-Baha says:

 The third virtue of humanity is the goodwill which is the basis of good actions. Certain philosophers have considered intention superior to action, for the goodwill is absolute light; it is purified and sanctified from the impurities of selfishness, of enmity, of deception. Now it may be that a man performs an action which in appearance is righteous, but which is dictated by covetousness. For example, a butcher rears a sheep and protects it; but this righteous action of the butcher is dictated by desire to derive profit, and the result of this care is the slaughter of the poor sheep. How many righteous actions are dictated by covetousness! But the goodwill is sanctified from such impurities.

Briefly, if to the knowledge of God is joined the love of God, and attraction, ecstasy and goodwill, a righteous action is then perfect and complete.

(Abdu’l-Baha, Some Answered Questions, p. 301)
