I Admire Intelligence

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 13,424 People

    There is something to be said about a

    conversation that challenges my intellect. No, I'm not the most intelligent person in the room, but please don't think I'm an idiot either. One of my favorite things is to speak with people who are smarter than me, yes, at times the conversation may go over my head, but I...

    Oh I do and when I travel I seek out

    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.

    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

    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.

    Intelligence isn't knowledge,

    it's asking the right questions.

    Intelligence comes from many facets of life

    including the classroom, using one's computer for various areas of research, life's different and vast experiences, and from obtaining and using common sense. This all creates wisdom and intelligence.

    Intelligence is an amazing trait,

    however it's something that many people have but sadly few people choose to use. In the technological age we are in you would think that being regarded as intellectual would be something of a compliment. The advances that have been made are vast, yet the playground bullying of...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I automatically look up to people with

    intelligence. They just seem like people who are to be respected. When I know I can learn things from them I enjoy that. Even if they don't know they're teaching me things. I wish I had it, maybe one day.
