    I think I used too. And

    now I don't. I think I viewed myself as pretty shallow for liking intellectual people and also realised that the whole world is unusual if you break someone down and slowly peered into their souls. I found someone who's intellect didn't match my own. They weren't not dumb not...

    I admire my coworker

    who is good at everything. It takes more than just conviction to be who he is. I admire him because he helps me challenge myself and raise my own bar.

    My son would not participate in school.

    He was too socially awkward. He bucks authority that has no real superiority other than mere rank. He did not conform. I do not conform either, but I put more value in the education I wanted. He reads voraciously though. I managed to enroll him in GED classes at age 17. He had...

    Usually an intellectual person has a different

    pattern of thought than other people which will draw you to them, and trust me anyone who can change the way you think to the better is a golden ticket. Thinking is life. And changing the way of thinking is life changing.

    What makes someone unusual

    and intellectual? These are both traits that are in the eye of the beholder in some sense, right? I mean if something unusual is out of the norm, define normal. Is it something you don't see everyday? Also there are so many different types of intelligence, some that are more...

    The beautiful thing about humans is

    that we are all unique. Some people just hide it, trying to blend in with the world, but they should embrace their unique traits! Intelligence is a very admirable quality, and I think people are more intelligent than they realize and express.. You can also improve intellectually...

    The ones I have always most admired are those

    who dare to stand outside the norm. Brilliant people who forged their own paths, Lawrence of Arabia, Chinese Gordon, Fred Dobbs, Jim Hendrix, Jim Morrison...so many, people who played life by their own rules. I not only admire them I want to be like them.

    It's true. A real intellectual can be very cool

    and aloof on one hand and then so disarmingly sweet that you forget how a moment ago you felt like the thickest brick on the planet. I love the lofty thinker! The awkward small talker! The open hearted!

    Nikola Tesla. . . one of the most underrated,

    non-celebrated scientists. His works are still being used today. Like, I mean, he thought of things that scientists couldnt comprehend till today. . . Yes, and he is the one you should remember for electricity. NOT Edison. Edison was just like Bill Gates haha

    My kid draws the most hilarious pictures.

    I am usually laughing too hard to get upset about him drawing in school when he's suppose to be listening. Anatomically, his pictures are fascinating (not this one--it's pretty tame). He depicts people as these amorphous hybrids that are absolutely bizarre. No doubt they...

    Plain and simple, I get bored with 'normal'. I sort of feel like a collector of peculiar people. The misfits if you will. Those that look at the world differently. I'm different. I'm weird and odd and sometimes awkward. How could I fit in with normies? Lol. But, I appreciate...

    Sometimes people who are intelligent are

    considered unusual because of they way they think and process the world. I love learning about those people and what makes their brains go.
