I once read somewhere that on a science fiction convention Arthur C. Clarke made a comment that science fiction fans are more intelligent than the average person.
Is it true that he said that or is it an urban legend? Is there a source for this?

One of the biggest roles of science fiction is to prepare people to accept the future without pain and to encourage a flexibility of mind. Politicians should read science fiction, not westerns and detective stories.
