    I Believe There Are Only A Couple Of Types Of Intelligent People

    There is an intelligence that is "book smart," and can repeat lots of information, and then there is an all around intelligence with common sense, I think. I am not book smart, but I "get things" that others have to have explained to them again and again. Also, I find that people...

    I'm the dumbest smart guy you'll ever meet,

    or is it the smartest dumb guy? I'm never sure but even though I can draw you maps of a molecule I sometimes can't perform simple tasks like opening doors without injury. Other times I can think if how to add simple numbers but can reprogram and rebuild your computer. Weird?

    So I've Been Told...

    Back in my early childhood, I had many adults claim I had the intelligence of a grown man at 13 years old. The fine folks on the web often mistake me for a middle-aged man, older than what I actually am. I guess this implies intelligence! The funny thing is that I don't see...

    At Odds

    Sometimes I wish I could just be stupid, so I'd be happy, but I could never betray my thoughts like that. Because, when you're intelligent, you just don't belong. Nobody pays you much attention. They don't bother to see if you're coping, to see if you're doing okay. No, they...

    I consider myself to be intelligent.

    I think of intelligence as something God gave you when you were born. Knowledge is what you learn, and wisdom is knowing how to use your intelligence and knowledge properly. By "properly" I mean for the betterment of those with whom you come into contact.
