I consider myself wise beyond my years, and simultaneously beyond the scope of time and knowledge. To call myself anything other than philosopher would be breaking my stoic's code.

I don’t even consider myself smart. I understand the books that I read and even some harder stuff so I’m not s brainlet, but I’m definitely not an intellectual. I couldn’t really care for academia and would rather just make and play video games and fun novels and stories whenever I want. I might be a literary person but that doesn’t mean I’m Shakespeare level, hell I'm probably not even John green level

you're really smug and pretentious. the fact you typed all of this to explain how you're not smug and pretentious just makes you even more smug and pretentious
don't say "how"

No. Everyone have thought about existential dilemmas and shit, does not make everyone a philosopher.

I decided to read philosophy and became smarter than the majority of people I know

Philosophers just someone who realizes life is a cyclical prison and that nothing is more serious than escaping

Doesn't sound like a philosopher. Sounds more like a writer of modernist novels.

I have a BA in phil (graduated with honours), I was recommended for grad school by my professors (might go for a law degree before I finish the philosophy meme though) and have several backlogged papers that I have written over the last year or so that I consider publishable in philosophic journals. I still don't think of myself as a philosopher in a formal sense, but I honestly think we get hung up on who is and isn't a philosopher. Any who writes can call themselves a writer, a painter a painter, a dancer a dancer. Why is philosophy so abstracted? If Heidegger could pull philosophy from A Pair of Shoes, how was Van Gogh not a philosopher? What about Dostoyevsky? Tolstoy? Both had written work that was deeply philosophical. But Camus wrote the "real" philosophical novels because he had the degree. It's all posturing; if you are philosophizing you are acting as a philosopher. That's the long and short of it. Just because you are a philosopher doesn't mean you are any good at philosophy.

I couldn't really answer.

I don't believe I am in such level to be considered one. I read philosophy and try doing philosophy, but this dosen't make me a philosopher. Could make me a aspiring philosopher, but I am hardely someone that has reached the status of Plato's and Nietzche's, and so on.
