I Admire Wit and Intelligence

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 75,364 People

    Just because it's so rare to find the combo in

    one person... People try to be witty, and intelligent. It's somehow a goal for some, and while that is respectable, it's not admirable. What's admirable, is someone realizing how to tap into themselves and use their unique voice and sound witty and intelligent to the rest of us...

    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.

    It takes nothing to be good looking

    but it takes a lot for people to have wit and intelligence. I'm not just some pretty face who only looks at what's on the outside I look for what's on the inside. It's what matters the most. Everyone ages and looks fade.

    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...

    I enjoy people who are quick-witted

    and intelligent. I don't think they are interchangeable terms. I have known some very intelligent people who just seem to be so dull at stimulating conversation. To me, the most interesting people are those with a sharp wit and some depth behind that, as well.

    Who Do You Want To Be?
