I Admire Unusual And Intellectual People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,846 People

    I admire those who prefer the thunderous,

    gray, and chaotic sky over the blue, motionless and dull; Those who seem to be able to find a rainbow in the grayness. I've always loved storms more than anything and it's a bit unusual how I see a storm as so poetic, so deep with meaning. Thunder makes me uncontrollably smile...

    I dare to be different.

    Sometimes it throws people off guard and you see a side of them they seldom show. I like people who "march to their own drum", not so much to make them dangerous, but enough that they are not squeezed into the molds society tries to fit us into. That's where the intellectual...

    I do like intellectual people wish I could keep

    up with them. I love hearing them talk and the few who can bring it down to my level are a joy, because I can learn from them. The unusual part I have down pat.

    I'm the kind of person

    who will start spouting off facts about D-Day, Plato's symposium, human anatomy...I'd consider myself pretty unusual and intelligent, and I'd love to meet others similar in that respect! :)

    Boredom

    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...

    The best conversationalists I've ever known

    have been narcissistic, manipulative, cold, calculating and extremely dangerous. And I will always long for the next time they can dig so deep inside of me that I almost have to catch my breath to stay afloat and alive.

    Being normal is actually really easy.

    What’s hard is being an individual and being unique. If you can do it, do. It’s so much more rewarding to be unusual and fun and unique than to model your life after what people expect. Trust me, I know.

    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.

    Normal is a perception created in the eyes of

    those whom the 'norm' suits. If one is normal than another cannot be; we as human beings are all seperate and unique and so, one cannot be exactly like another. Therefore, normality is all an illusion and a false sense of security for those whom are afraid of change and...

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