    Intelligence - Inherent

    or Practiced? So my freshman seminar class read "Mindset: The New Psychology of Success" over the summer, and after class discussion today, I'm interested in some outside opinions. This entire book suggests that intelligence is something everyone has, and it is just a matter...

    This experience comes directly from this site.

    ..I've been deleted by an individual because I did not reply quickly and courteously as it was stated. I'd like to reply whether they ever see it or not by saying that: I do work...I don't sign out of most my apps because it takes to long to check them all if I had to...

    only intelligent people can understand what

    they are suffering by just being themselves, intelligent. They are the ones that have to go through isolation, loneliness and envy. But their tasks are great and they are the ones that are contributing into the evolution of this world just by thinking.

    But Who Doesn't?

    Have you ever met anyone who claims to like hanging around stupid people? The problem is, everybody thinks they're smart. And intelligence is unfortunately not something you can measure in the same absolute terms that you can use to measure speed, strength, or quickness. Even...

    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...

    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.

    It's not that I'm completely against organized

    because I am a very gifted and an intellectual individual. These types of people fill a void in my life by communicating with me on an intellectual level. I am very well versed in a range of topics. I do enjoy small talk when first meeting someone by playing 20 questions...

    Truly intelligent people.

    . Arrogance and a posh splash of curt sarcasm doesn't mean intelligence. It shows a good deal of cleverness which can be appreciated and some pseudo pride, which is fun to poke at. I guess I mean to say.. I like people who I can hold a conversation with mutually.. Despite even...

    They're easier to talk to.

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

    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...

    Intelligence really doesn't matter,

    a simple difference in our I.Q's is nothing to me. Yet if you lack something basic such as "Common Sense" then you and I are worlds apart, not only that but acting really immature then I will not even give you the time of day. Sorry that's just how I work if you cannot accept it...

    who is smart. You can still kid around with him or her but also you can talk about important things. Also you can just sit together silently and be happy. Sounds weird, no?
