    Don't bother if you cannot beat me in terms of

    grammar, logic, spelling or have nothing of greater substance. But if you are by all means, my mental superior, you may insult me by insinuating mental superiority in such a way I cannot comprehend. Crassness simply means you are of little intellect.

    If you need help on here that's great I'd love

    to help. If your only trying to be loud and seek attention good or bad for the sake of belonging you need to make a real account because you have serious problems lol.

    Intelligence

    What I have learned is at least one will always be critical of anything we say or do. When or if people would insult our intelligence it means something too, they're not has inteligent as they appear. One can know more things on a subject while another can be brighter on...

    A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste Or Got Brains? Don't Flaunt Them; Use Them.

    For some people, being intelligent might as well be performing as a circus act: they put on an outrageous, flamboyant show of the tricks they can do with their minds. They attempt to shock and amaze. They want presumably less intelligent little me to sit in awe and exclaim, "Oh...

    Mistakes my kindness

    as weakness. I will go out of my way to be kind and genuine to others. But there r limits and boundaries. If someone is hateful or cruel and I have only treated them respectfully, I can flip a switch and be as cold as ice. And it's too bad that a person had to ever be that...

    I Truly Despise When People Think They Know Everything...then Say Something That Is Bull!

    I was recently in a class where this one boy bragged about how he was the most intelligent. He would say that everyone else in the room was just stupid. Um, excuse me, B*tch Flipping please! You are in pre algebra? Oh, I am in geometry. You think you know everything about...

    Story Of My Life

    I attend a fine arts school. Naturally, there is competition. However, the amount of pretension and one-upping is ridiculous. Having a conversation with most people is literally like having someone like your parents patronize you and treat you like you're five years old and...

    I know I am too smart

    for my own good. Everyone who knows me, had a conversation with me calls me intelligent. Recently two people who don't know me at all and just judging me on what another person said about me (who also doesn't know me) called me dumb. They also called me a 'basic'.... this is...

    Just because you don't agree, does not mean I'm stupid. It means you have an inability to accept that there may be more than one answer to a question.

    Nothing But Sawdust

    My husband tells me I have a chip on my shoulder. I guess I would have to agree. When I was a child, my father said and did certain things that made me feel stupid. I never felt like I was smart. It's not that my Dad never encouraged me or praised me,..because he did. He did help...

    Age Vs Experience

    I think the most common insult to my intelligence is when people assume that I don't know about things because of my age. In my life, I didn't have a lot of friends growing up, so I found myself hanging around with the adults at most functions. My father was in the Air Force, so...

    I Do Hate It, But.....

    Yes, I do hate when someone insults my intelligence, but at the same time, I don't have enough faith in my intelligence to brush off the insults.  In fact, you could say that it's so bad that I'm actually surprised when my schoolmates (I'm in the pre-university stage...

    I Hate It But the Deeper Feeling Is That This Is Due to Fear

    I hate it when someone insults my intelligence. Or better put "I feel unconfortable and insecure when someone insults my intelligence". I think it is a big problem to be so focused on being smart. I wish my attitude towards my intelligence was more relaxed. But...

    I find this to be incredibly rude. If you do not agree with me, fine. But do NOT insult my intelligence. Just because you do not like or agree with what I am saying doesn't not make me unintelligent. Unless you insult me I will not insult your intelligence. Not to mention, this...

    Especially if it's the spelling

    or the grammar. First, if you're gonna judge make sure it's not because of a typo error. Second, if it's about the grammar, English is not my primary language so... Give me a favor and stfu.

    This Infuriates Me - But Sometimes Use It
