Your are making an assumption regarding ET size.
I would have though that a high I.Q. would have meant you would have considered the plausible possibility that ET's come in many shapes and sizes,
and as such could be what we humans would consider to be giants or titans just as much as they could be what we humans would call tiny or
Comparatively, that is.
Many factors would have a bearing on what form and size ET's have, from their DNA, to environmental conditions to genetic manipulation.
Perhaps there are intelligent species so small it would be difficult to see them and their technology without optics.
Strange as it sounds, it is possible. The differences of the size and shape of life here on Earth is staggering...and that's even in a relatively
similar environment to one another, imagine if you added a denser planet, a different chemistry of atmosphere, a higher or lower gravity..the list of
factors governing size and shape is pretty endless.
It is (IMO) short sighted to write something like this off because it's a foot or two in size, and not 30 or 40 feet or even meters (miles in some
cases). A foot or two sized 'flying saucer' may contain ET's an inch or two in size for all we know.
In WWII, the 'Foo fighters' were reportedly very agile and fast, self luminous spheres or around a foot in size, roughly that of a soccer ball.
In recent times, we witness huge 'mothership' sized craft releasing these much smaller, 'soccer ball' sized self luminous, very agile and fast
spheres... coincidence that we find something on Mars that appears to be artificial, has high symmetry, and is at least anomalous to it's
surroundings, natural or otherwise.
Even those who could posses an I.Q. of 367 are still subject to the psychological and social conditioning practices the rest of us lower I.Q. folk
