I Admire Wit and Intelligence

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 89,151 People

    I'm not quite sure why,

    but there's this social epidemic of vast narcissism that seems to be sweeping the nation. Intellect is admirable and attractive but when a conversation stars feeling like your front row in a flex off it's a problem. Does your confidence make me feel inferior? Maybe. I will say...

    Nothing quite as attractive

    as an intelligent witty person.

    Nothing is sexier than a strong mind

    and a good vocabulary. I hate when people think stupidity is cute...it's not

    I hate (yes hate) that no one uses a dictionary

    anymore. Please do not waste my time asking me what something is, or what it means. That is straight ignorant. Aside from the fact that you are online and have Google at your fingertips.

    When you get to know someone ,

    all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You being to dwell in their energy , recognize the scent of their skin . You see only the essence of the person , not the shell . That's why you can't fall in love with their beauty or looks . You can lust after it , be...

    I have alway had a thing

    for a girl who isn't scared to stand out, a girl who really has her own outlook on the world and is not driven by today's society mainstream. I'm not talking about a girl who THINKS she's smart and expecting to be considered a top pick for that, shoving heads in books all...

    Do you think wit and intelligence is something

    that could be trained, learned or taught? And how?

    I am unable to watch anything on television

    because my mind wanders from the content and becomes more focused on the technical formula. I count repetitive patterns and the cadence of segues. I can predict character developments and plot formulations within the first minutes of any production including news broadcasts...

    When I saw this group,

    I realized that all the friends I have are witty and inteligent. There's something about this combination that makes for good conversation. Not to mention a lot of laughter.

    One of the hardest things

    for me to come to terms with is the fact that others will treat me however they want, regardless of how I treat them. I used to think that if I were kind, people would be kind back, which is partially true, but in reality, many end up taking kindness for granted, as if it were a...

    I love it when i can have a sense

    and nonsense conversation at the same time to anyone. It does not need to have to be knowledgeable all the time, as long as you both understand each other, (like ones sense of humor) and the conversation is fruitful (this is where the sense part comes).

    But if all you can do is try to insult

    There is nothing sexier

    than an intelligent man. There is however one caveat to this.... He must display humility and thoughtfulness. The man who is intelligent enough to respect life and values doesn't entertain the idea of cheating on a spouse, for example. This is precisely why I lost all respect...

    It sometimes feels like we ride on top of a

    wave of bullshit based on faulty logic and wit and intelligence can be fins that disrupt and cut through the wave. Keeps us on our toes.

    It's hard for people with a good moral

    conscience to accept that others might not have the same level of awareness. This is why I ruminate and obsess over how someone could knowingly treat me so poorly. Then again, surely they have a good moral conscience if they know what they're doing is wrong, and perhaps it is...

    Sex is easy, looks can be faked,

    weight can be lost and gained, but intelligence/wit are fleeting things that society seems to value less than implants. Brain cells pique my interest most.

    Oh how delightful it is to converse with someone

    who can delve deep into matters that really don't matter but it's okay because their words are so enticing and you're wrapped up in their scent and their talk that has you mesmerised! They put a trance on you when you see their lips move! You just think.... 'What will they say...

    There is nothing wrong with a beautiful woman,

    but one thing that can put a girl over the top is wit, humor and intelligence. A willingness to use them in conversation and not be rude about it, honestly says more to me than the color of her hair, lol. It's fun being able to sit at a coffee shop and talk, debate and indulge...

    It's sad. I know people don't mean any harm

    when they have a hard time believing I'm just a 16 year old girl on here. I know how I speak and know I am great with words. It's just maybe if this generation didn't act so ignorant maybe adults would expect a little more of us: thus being respected for who we are.
