Many scientists don't rate us well as a species. They focus on what we haven't achieved instead of what we've achieved, Theoretical physicists like Michio Kaku are adamant that we are so far behind that alien civilizations would see us as a bunch of hairy, grunting bipeds who still bang rocks together so we can watch TMZ. The problem is these advanced civilizations are yet to be found, which could make the Kardeshev scale an inaccurate measurement of just how far we've come.

Maybe, as humans live longer, some of the basic instincts go away. Maybe when we live to be 200 years old, there won't be any testosterone left in the body and that ancient DNA wiring will have unraveled. it will be survival of the intelligent rather than the fittest.
