    Although I still feel intimidated at times,

    I always like to learn new things. I still fear being asked questions and having no clue. Bad memory has crept up on me. I can't remember what I forgot. Books, movies, songs, .... more still, but forgot.

    Good muscle tone is essential,

    and guys live to show off their six pack. But.... What about training your brain, your mind, getting intelligence? An intelligent man with a great shape, always gets my vote!

    To me intelligence is not what we learn in

    books by reading, but how we learn while feeling. A blind man is much more intelligent.

    I adore intelligent people,

    but firmly believe there are different forms of intelligence. No one type is superior to another, just different. It's amazing how mind works in different people.

    I guess today is one of those days

    when you're awake at 5:30am, just laying there silently in the dark under your window in a faintly moon-lit room and wonder about hundreds of things. One thing I cannot understand is my own mind. I've struggled with a lot of things, especially with intelligence. I feel extremely...

    If a good looking person presents himself

    as a... Not so smart person, then they are no longer cute to me, in fact, I cringe the thought of them. That is just how I feel about it.

    I am but a mere drifter in the kaleidoscope of

    Being intelligent is very lonely.

    It's very difficult finding someone with the intellectual acumen that equals my own. When I meet someone who comes close, is equal to or exceeds it, I don't let go. For, they are the rarest of birds.

    I love deep, meaningful conversations.

    I'm a sapiosexual, so intelligence is a big turn on. It seems so difficult to find people online who want to have an in depth conversation these days. I've found it, but it's rare. Hoping to find more soon!

    Even more than intelligence,

    I admire insight - the ability to connect the dots and find a connection between ideas. Being given an insight is like learning how a magic trick is done: once you're in on the secret, you can never look at a situation the same way again.

    and full of wisdom and say things that are intelligent and wise make me happy/give me hope. Although it's rare. It comforts me a lot when I do come across people like this

    It's important to show a great personality

    and things like a good smile and a great attitude. But intelligence is what makes the difference. If somebody can't keep a conversation or defend an opinion, that's sad. Not only the exterior matters, but wants Inside

    Intelligence isn’t just about how many levels

    of math courses you’ve taken, how fast you can solve an algorithm, or how many vocabulary words you know that are over 6 characters. It’s about being able to approach a new problem, recognize its important components, and solve it—then take that knowledge gained and put it...

    This is a trait I admire greatly; however,

    I do not like it when people flaunt it. When you have to brag about how smart you are that when it become arrogance.

    I really do admire it.

    It could be because i'm a debater and i love to be challenged intellectually . But it's just something about intelligence that will earn you a lot of respect from me. It's the best way to impress me.

    There are so many kinds of intelligence.

    For example: - Musical–rhythmic and harmonic (has to do with sensitivity to sounds, rhythms, tones, and music) - Visual–spatial - Verbal–linguistic - Logical–mathematical - Bodily–kinesthetic (control of one's bodily motions and the capacity to handle objects...

    One thing that i would never understand,

    jocks always literally beat the c**p out of geeks and nerds. I always say to the them "Without Steve Jobs you wouldn't be able to d**k pic you girlfriend or look up what 2+2 is" as someone with a very high intelligence, it makes me so confused.

    I'm attracted to intelligence.

    Not the book smart type of intelligence. I could care less whether you've gone to college or how much money you make because of it. I like intelligent conversations that make me think even hours after it's ended.

    that is for me. I'm not talking about shoving knowledge down your throat, but just having experience in life and basic knowledge can get you almost anywhere. Just a nice, real conversation that doesn't have anything to do about: "how big are your boobs" or "I just ate a twinkie...

    Intelligence is the ability to traverse the

    vast, hilly landscape that is knowledge. Not all of the landscape is mapped. Some is fenced off, labeled as "wrong" (perhaps justifiably so). Most other parts are untraveled, or at least uncharted. Nobody has once seen the edge and reported it. The true leaders of this world...

    Intelligence is an amazing trait,

    Particularly as one who is not very

    scientifically or logically minded, I nevertheless look up TO scientists and other thinkers. Outside of the more applied and natural sciences, I of course find more of my kind of intelligence in past writers and philosophers.

    Stray Thoughts From The Void of My Mind's Eye

    What we learn in books gives us knowledge.

    Application of that knowledge through a lifetime of experiences gives us wisdom. Knowledge should never be confused with wisdom
