They have multiple published research papers in academic journals.

@4 I feel like this conflates being smart with being good at a given subject. If that's how you prefer to define it that's all we'll and good but I usually prefer a more holistic view

4 conflates even more than that. You can publish stuff w/out being smart depending on your academic field/specialization.
Not to mention, that's a hella authoritarian/``fetter'd spirit'' way of determining one's value (i.e. someone with authority [in every sense] must prescribe value for another to recognize it).

Someone seems smart if they opine with passion, or--alternatively--speak very little but with wisdom and gravity. Like if someone went on a long-winded rant OR spoke only in Rochefoucauld-tier chunks with impeccable timing.
