    Intelligence isn't knowledge,

    it's asking the right questions.

    I admire stupidity. I believe Some ignorants

    are smarter than a genius. People tend to give more attention to smart people but have they realize they forgot the others?

    If your actions inspire others to dream more,

    learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

    I never really understood

    why my friends found all the girls they liked so attractive. They were popular, beautiful, but not worth talking about everyday? I realized that I admire character and intellect over physical appearance, and it wasn't like the popular girls were stupid, they just cared about...

    Well, I just feel stupid now.

    Here I thought I was hot stuff because I could identify and recite all the letters of the alphabet before the age of two. Big deal…hahaha. Seriously, this kid is pretty freaking amazing. He’s going to take over the world someday…if we don’t destroy it...

    I believe that brain is the sexiest

    and most exciting part of our body. I appreciate those who train it. Whoever that disagrees may suffer from brain damage.

    I hope you'll understand

    when I say that IQ's don't impress me. I want a smart man, who can talk about anything. Who's intelligence and craving for knowledge has no limitations. I remember the first time I was disappointed in meeting someone's idol. "He's the smartest man I know" but the more I...

    Nothing against stupid people,

    but I consider myself pretty smart and I don't think I'm being vain or cocky at all in saying so. And smart people just have better conversations. That said, I'll take a nice idiot over a smart jerk any day of the week. But if you're intelligent AND kind, we'll get along great...

    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...

    I don't want a smart mouthed walking

    encyclopedia but I don't mind someone who can contribute to intellectual conversations and challenge me into a debate. I find ambition very attractive as well as determination, motivation, and a craving to learn something new.

    I am an intellectual woman

    and I admire others who are intellectual as well. I have a PH.D. and am a college professor. I love being with them and chatting with them as well. We are all on the same plane with our ideas.

    I never realized how much of a turn on

    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...

    There is nothing worse someone

    who is completely dumb, but on the flip side, if someone is beyond intelligent for my brain or uses words that no one understand then it's off putting. I like intelligent conversation rather than talking to an air head. I'm sure some women just pretend to be dumb, I don't...

    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...

    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...

    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.
