I see some dangers in appearing "smart" in meetings:
1. others may be insulted if it appears you understand their work better than they do.
2. you may be perceived as volunteering for difficult tasks.
3. management may see you as not "challenged enough" by your current job. that might embarrass your boss.
Perhaps it's safer to appear dull, or average smart, but not stupid ?
«... thank the gods that they have made you superior to those events which they have not placed within your own control, rendered you accountable for that only which is within you own control For what, then, have they made you responsible? For that which is alone in your own power—a right use of things as they appear.» Discourses of Epictetus Book I:12
