    I have heard this expression before, yet
    do not quite understand it
    When exactly are you too smart for your own good?

    is it not the same as saying " you are stupid"?

    i hope to read some clever answers, not smart ones.

    Far as I know, it originally refered to when someone figured something out that got them hurt- IE, if a cop figured out where some criminal was hidding out, and the criminal kills the cop- the cop might be "to smart for his own good" in the eyes of the criminal. when I think of this line in the movies, it is always the bad person from the movie saying it to the good charicter after some evil plan was foiled.
    Plan for the worst, hope for the best
