We start a new conversation and explore what being the smartest person in the room is like. While that may seem arrogant or sarcastic, it is not. However, the focus is more on what it is like to think differently and set the most intelligent person as our goal. There are specific challenges when people make that the focus, such as we often see in a room of engineers.

Challenges For The Smartest Person In The Room

While the goal is lofty, there are also many downsides to focusing on the smartest or best. Often, a lone wolf or “me against the world” attitude hinders or blocks teamwork. That also can be highly limiting even to the individual. The most outstanding star athlete still needs their team; the most prominent stars are often the best team-mates. Those truisms work for intellectual pursuits as well as physical ones.
