    On EP I think it's critical.

    I don't mind indulging in conversations about things that don't interest me or even repulse me if I feel like I'm actually having an exchange with a thinking human being. But, if not, it's just not worth it.

    ---Addicted to knowledge--- I have a problem.

    I think I am addicted to always learning new things and having new experiences. Life became boring, people more stupid then I though they wore before. And woman... ? My god! just can't even talk to a beauty without a brain. This almost killed me at one point because I fell...

    Anyone care to stimulate my mind?

    I have a gut feeling I'm about to do something I shouldn't. But I feel excited. Like non sexually of course.

    The Heavy thought... (Don't read

    if u have a nice day) :) I was working on my social media project today and took a break to read some science news( my addiction ) and had a same thought I have had many times before: humanity has time until about 2030 (not only my opinion) cause if you think of it, that will...

    I need to be intellectually stimulated

    or I get bored. there is a time and a place to chill out the life without being stimulated intellectually seems like a blank stare. With a woman being physically attractive is a beginning but without an intellectual connection it can never last.

    I feel like it's impossible to find younger

    people who still enjoy intelligent conversations. It's like every other word is swag or yolo, and I'm just over here like "that's a dumbed down version of carpe dium that people use as an excuse to ignore obvious consequences that have the ability to hinder their future...

    I adore stimulating conversation with

    interesting people. It must be an extension of my love of learning and wanting to research as much as possible in my lifetime. You can't get any better than first-hand experiences and a person's reasons behind their opinions. even when I don't agree with the point of view, I...

    can literally get lost

    for hours "researching". like right now for instance, i am pretty sure i have looked up every single Christopher Poindexter composition because i came across one which i felt i related to.

    New ideas make me happy.

    Even if they conflict with my existing ideas. Maybe especially. I don't need to agree with you to enjoy the conversation. In fact sometimes I'll argue an opposing viewpoint simply to explore the ideas some more. Most people don't get this. They are uncomfortable and think I am...

    I don't have any idea

    why people are into Reality TV. I'm not one to sit around playing video games either. I don't get how people do that. There is so much to do in life, why not learn how to do it? Today there's so much out there that people can learn, and so many ways people are learning them. You...

    I'm interested in having a conversation on

    world problems, the value of education, the downfall of capitalism, corruption in politics, and whatever else you feel like discussing so long as it encompasses more than just you and I.

    Not that I don't get stimulating conversation

    in general but my mind doesn't like to settle down once it gets to engaged. I really don't know how my husband deals with me when I just can't stop reading or talking.

    I need to have stimulating conversations.

    I need them like I need oxygen to breathe.. I MUST HAVE really good intense conversations. If I do not, and worse comes to worst, I will feel a little empty that day. I'll become distraught and a small part of me dies. 😔😔😔😔😔

    I love it when someone comes along

    and talks about things like Astronomy, Religious studies, the law system, E.Ts, physics, and even the reason for life. It's always been a turn on when one is able to outsmart me and when I can just have a conversation with proper English. No slang and such. :P

    Anyone else get curious about something

    and then stop at nothing to learn every single detail about it? Like I got curious at what year India was "founded" then spent three days writing a research paper on the order of countries founded for literally no reason. I do this type of thing all the time. If I don't have all...

    I talk myself a fair bit.

    ..... Not because I'm lonely. Nor is it because I'm a nutter . I just find myself walking around. Tidying up and **** talking the most random stuff out loud. Sometimes it's a mix of talking and singing. Not like normal singing. Just singing words. I make words up, and...

    gossip and guys. I like to talk about those things sometimes too but after an hour or two we run out of things to talk about and when I try to mention a more interesting topic they just stare at their phones and give one word answers, so I have given up lol. I'm sure they think...

    Turn me on with your intellect,

    passion and zest for life. Beauty is, for me, encased within a mind that is creative, intelligent and always curious. One with a insatiable desire to learn and one filled with the sexiest of thoughts and fantasies. Superficial beauty fades but a sexy, smart, and funny mind never...

    It is interesting to see how people carry on

    conversations. It becomes a daunting task, finding a person that is not afraid to have a conversation about any subject of depth. The type of conversation where you talk about what truely resonates within . Remember life is about learning, growing etc etc.

    I love learning, but only

    if it's something I want to know about, usually something spiritual. I find it very difficult to relate to people who are just into things like partying all the time, watching the latest television show, and emulating celebrities. Those people appear to me as being incredibly...

    I literally could not sleep with someone

    who I couldn't have a deep conversation with. From opinions on different standards to life philosophy, I love it all. I get physically turned on by mental stimulation.

    I miss college. The deep conversations

    and academic challenges. I don't have that at home. In the beginning of marriage, I made the mistake of telling my husband (who played video games more than not) that I needed stimulating conversation. He's never let me forget it. However, it's still true today. I lack that...

    I need to be surrounded by more intellectuals

    or at least extremely intriguing people. My mind needs constant stimulation. Talking to most people is more of a chore and just extremely boring and irritating. I come across the most annoyingly predictable and mundane people.

    It's not all about looks,

    but I understand it's important. However, if you can't carry a conversation with someone it doesn't make a difference. One's intellect can be quite attractive. I don't mean book smart. I'm talking common sense, empathy, and well-being.

    that doesn't revolve around your genitals? I enjoy conversing about many subjects, some requiring deeper thought than others, such as movies, TV, books, space, science, music, relationships, the human mind, psychology... etc. I'm open minded and love to think outside the box, I...
