I Like Intelligent People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 25,616 People

    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...

    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...

    In the Eye of the Beholder.

    I wonder why this is an adult community? In some ways, my musing on such a trivial topic reflects my thoughts on intelligent people. For a start, some of the intelligence that has impressed me most in my life is that of young children. I do not believe in the notion of...

    And this is precisely

    why I support public education: I simply do not want to live in a world with lots of un-intelligent people.

    I enjoy being around intellectual persons

    It's not that I'm completely against organized

    religion, the only issue I have with it is it's lack of acceptance for other peoples values, or opinions. Instead of debate it seems they just attack, instead of listening to reason they look to blind faith. Quick to judge others for being different, so cold and un excepting. It...

    Intelligence is the mental capacity to

    comprehend the nature of things around us. This includes scientific thought, emotional cognizance, social proficiency, aesthetic abilities, understand the physical world and abstract ideas. So when someone likes intelligent people - it is quite a vague term. People might know...

    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.

    Intelligence to not take the world seriously

    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.

    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.
