    Unstimulated

    I crave intellectual stimulation. Sometimes I feel so alone, like im craving something and i cant figure out why i can be with people and still feel unsatisfied. I get so excited talking about intellectual things. I feel like I'm constantly surrounded by the most unenlightened...

    I can't imagine not wanting to be surrounded by

    intelligent people. Now, like every group of people, there are the radicals ******** that take everything too far or those who believe they are far more intelligent that they really are. Even with those people, when you find that one connection with someone else who can keep up...

    Intelligence Attracts Me

    Try having a conversation or trying to hook up with someone with no intelligence. What would you talk about? How would they hold your attention for very long? I had the pleasure of meeting an Indian gentleman online and he was very intelligent, well-spolken, charismatic...

    Let´s Not Confuse These Two

    I have read some of the other comments posted on this group and I sense some are confusing education with intelligence. I understand why a person with little or no education may feel intimidated to engage in conversations on topics unknown to him/her. However , these people are...

    'I like intelligent people'.

    Well. Yes. Well. Let me qualify and clarify. I don't like ALL people simply for being bright. However I DO like funny, feisty folk. And it strikes me that it isn't really possible to be properly funny without being clever. And feistiness without the spark of self awareness...

    I honestly just love talking to intelligent

    people. The fact that I can sit down and have the most amazing conversation with someone about science, math, etc. it's fantastic. If honestly, you can have a intelligent full on conversation with me while using full sentences then you are an amazing individual.

    Tease Me

    Tease me with your mind, and the flesh will follow. Make me smile, and my resolve will weaken. Challenge my beliefs, and my mind will open. Teach me something new, and my thoughts will deepen. Explore new ideas, and our bond will strengthen. Make me laugh, and my heart will...

    I like anyone who has a goal in mind

    and has plans for their future. Most importantly, working towards those goals. That just tells me that you're an intelligent individual who knows what they want.

    I am an intellectual woman

    and I thoroughly enjoy being around intellectual people as well. I love being challenged mentally. This is what my family and friends do to and with me and I do the same to them as well.

    I enjoy being around intellectual persons

    They're easier to talk to.

    You won't have to ask "So, what do you wanna talk about?". The conversation comes naturally.

    I'm a sapiosexualist.

    Which means I'm attracted to or sometimes even aroused by someone's intelligence. If I like you, I'll ask a bunch of questions. It's almost always older men though. No older than 28 though lol

    But Not Too Scholarly

    I do like them, but I don't like "nerdy-ness". A few subjects grow rather boring for me after awhile. I like to talk to people with emotional intelligence as opposed to scholars. Long sentences in a book about entropy is a little over my head. I don't follow at all. I like...

    I reckon that if you interact with intelligent

    people, you will never be bored because with intelligent people there are so many things that should be talked. Also with the bright ones you can talk whatever you want because those people know how to give advice and put themselves in someone's shoes.

    Intelligence to not take the world seriously

    and at the same time to have an awareness that is unusual, to understand yourself enough to learn more. To have compassion and a spiritual yearning and to have fun without destroying others.

    North Of 160

    My wife's IQ is above 160 and while most would feel that is a great thing to have and it is, there is a downside of them never forgetting anything you ever say or do. It's like being videoed and recorded the entire time.
