I Admire Wit and Intelligence

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 44,226 People

    I can talk to most people,

    most people have something extraordinary to say. But there is something wonderful when there is a sense of instant connection, when a question is asked before you even ask it. It is like being parts of the same conversation, which continues even when you are not together. Not...

    REVENGE OF AN EX-WIFE: She spent the first

    I believe people who are witty

    and intelligent are more interesting to have a conversation with. Those who use slang such as "doe" come off to me as uneducated. I just admire when someone can think deeply about a topic.

    Does It Get You More Sex In The City?

    Why does one want to be witty? Is it not best to be busty and pretty? Fulfilling skill and some fun in the arts Posing and shaking those bare body parts With fame and some shame and celebrity? Why does one want to be witty? Does it get you more sex in the city? One can still be...

    Curiosity.

    A person doesn't have to have a higher education to be intelligent. Curiosity, in my opinion is a sign of intelligence. A person curious to learn new things, curious about other people, new places, philosophies and concepts etc.. Knowledge and wisdom are not the same things. I...

    True Beauty Is A Site To Behold . . .

    watch someone feed the hungry, clothe the naked, help the ill and down-trodden, lift up the weak, support the poor, comfort the motherless, this is to look upon beauty.

    By far among the sexiest traits I see in a lady

    I like video games, but they are very violent.

    I want to create a video game in which you have to help all the characters who have died in the other games. 'Hey, man, what are you playing?' 'Super Busy Hospital. Could you leave me alone? I'm performing surgery! This guy got shot in the head, like, 27 times!' Demetri Martin

    It's not really a matter of finding

    intelligence...it's all about finding the people who POSSESS intelligence and wit. We all the capacity to extend our knowledge, but we're all too caught up on figuring out whose going to be America's Next Top Model and what's going with the Bieber kid.

    Intelligence Makes A Guy Look Good

    I am not going to deny that 'Dark, Tall, Handsome with Six-pack' always blows me away. Yet, what does really matter to keep me interested is intelligence. Some guys have got all that beautiful appearance but when they speak...there's no dream, no ambition, no aim in their life...

    I think these are such valuable qualities to

    I prefer those that challenge my mind.

    Make me think, force me to defend my position and allow me to show my wit. In return I will offer and ask for nothing less. I have spent far too much time hiding these parts of my personality in order to fit in. I now choose to find those that share these traits.

    They Go Hand-in-hand

    Wit and intelligence is pretty sexy. When you can spar with someone in good fun and enjoy a bit of banter, it says a lot about how that person's mind works. What better way to get to know someone than to do a little back and forth.
