College Newspapers Self-Report High Levels of Cleverness

The National College Measuring Service (NCMS) reports that students participating in a campus media club like the college newspaper or radio station self-report being 16.8% more clever than their peers.

The only group self-reporting higher levels of cleverness are the students who consider themselves too cool for joining news media or reading books.

In reality, media journalists and their critics rank equally with their peers in cleverness, but slightly higher in narcissistic insecurity and caffeine intake.
