    Be brave, be beautiful

    I find when you come across things

    that are certainly not the 'norm' or the daily occurrence, I feel it's refreshing. I love intelligence and I'm attracted to it, it shows a certain... Mental strength that I adore and I'd like to think I have that in myself too. New and unexpected experiences meeting people who...

    Yes I do totally admire unusual people.

    and intellectual. To me being intellectual isn't knowing everything it's about being able to have a meaningful conversation that isn't narrow minded. I love people that don't know they are unusual because that's when they truly are. I had a girl the other day that came into my...

    I have always wanted to know what it is like to

    be "normal" , so this year I tried. I tried watching the television shows I hear people talking about, listening to the music played on the radio, dressing like other woman my age in my area, and just generally trying to fit it with the society where I live. It didn't last long...

    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.

    I have always like people

    who are outside the conventional norm. I have above average intelligence but I love being and talking with people that are smarter than me. Some of my favorite people are Jack Kerouac, Jim Morrison, Edgar Allan Poe, Albert Einstein, and numerous others.

    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.

    The Unusual

    Most Intelligent people are unusual, for instance Einstein wore women's high heels, not because he was gay but that they were shoes. So he wore them. Majority of famous painters were all very strange people, example would be Da Vinci, Van Gogh and Dali. Beethoven was deaf...

    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...

    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.

    this subject is that the way to a man's heart is not a linear path. No. There are several pit stops along the way and no 2 maps are exactly the same.

    Intelligence is one of those hard-to-define

    qualities, which fall into the category of ‘things you know when you see. Fortunately, many attempts have been made to quantify intelligence, and we've begun to discover patterns, suggesting links between intelligence and certain characteristics. Unusual and intellectual...

    My kid draws the most hilarious pictures.

    Unusual and Intellectual people.

    Well, I could look at these jointly or severely. Personally, I prefer them jointly. I really have always gravitated to having extreme interest in people that are quite unusual as well as rather intellectual. This is not to say that I'm dismissive of other types of people. I'm...

    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...

    Intellectuals floor me in the same way pretty

    guys capture other women. I would've happily been Professor Robert Reich's love slave---all 4'11" of him. It's one of my weaknesses; once I discover a person's interested in philosophy, physics, literature or advanced math, I'm immediately in awe---and a tad intimidated.
