    Wup. Meant to add:

    The subject is "one". The verb is "is".

    Thanks Jayce. It is always humbling to learn that I'm not as smart as me thought I were.

    None of us is as smart as we think we are. That doesn't sound right. No one is as smart as we think we are. That does sound correct.
    I guess we learn what we hear. Thanks for the lesson. I thunk it wrong too.

    I'd say that what sounds right is "none of us is as smart as he thinks he is (or she thinks she is).

    Re: Word and grammar checks

    Word is a waste of time when it comes to checking grammar. Good for a laugh maybe, but the only way to get it right is to know your grammar. Or have a very good reference book to hand.
