Average of my hometown? Of the company I work for? Average of the CP community? World average?
Are we talking about the number of languages I know? Am I better than someone who knows a little bit of ten languages while I know only two, but quite well?
And is someone who is fluent in C a better programmer than someone who is fluent in C#?

I voted above average because I'm by far the best at my company AND I got a set of skills that I don't necessarily need as a developer, but come in handy when doing my job. Like talking to customers and even make them like me Wink | ;-)
It's an OO world.
C#
public class Naerling : Lazy<Person>{
    public void DoWork(){ throw new NotImplementedException(); }
}
