I Need to Be Intellectually Stimulated

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 20,265 People

    I find it extremely difficult finding people

    who are self driven into knowledge and wisdom. It's disappointing at times, but you know what they say... "If you're the smartest one in the room, you're not in the right room." Which is why I'd prefer being a loner. Maybe it's just people caring about their ego too much?

    I realised I haven't had a bright,

    intellectual conversation in so long I actually can't remember the last time. Doesn't help that I barely have time to read smart books anymore, but I'd still like to have an intellectual conversation once in awhile. And I think intellectual discussion is by far the most...

    Mouths locked, Kiki?s legs wrapped around Max?

    s hips, he carried her to his bed and lay her down. He pulled at his own jeans and t-shirt, ripping it off in a frenzy. Kiki sat up and pulled her jacket and jeans off, ripping her tank over her head all the while watching Max, fire burning hotter in her core. She was getting...

    When will this change?

    The human race is a herd. Here we are, unique, eternal aspects of conciousness with an infinity of potential, and yet we allowed ourselves to be blobs of conformity, a herd. We are being controlled and directed by a tiny few.

    My thoughts then turned to the woman

    who had single-handedly brought my libido back from the brink of extinction. She gave rise to my nether regions by way of her sharp wit and penchant for profanity. She was the reason I woke up rearing to go; the object of my desire, the fuel for my fantasies. I dreamt of her...

    I no longer have the energy

    for meaningless friendships and mindless people. I want to completely diverge into topics, someone's mind, the world. I don't care about how the weather is.

    I enjoy this daily, via books,

    conversation, word games, mind games, interesting YouTube videos, & by learning new skills through lessons or tutorials. Our minds are amazing!!

    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...

    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.

    And then you sit in silence

    and observe it. And you begin to realise how beautiful it is to be content with it.

    You ever talk to a lot of people

    and feel like you didn't talk at all? Not that those people weren't important, but the conversation was lacking something more stimulating?

    I have come to the conclusion

    that I cannot simply strive for a interesting , intelligent conversation - they'll just sweep in unexpectedly like the way coffee wakes me up in the morning, the same way this kind of conversation would. Another learning I made. Interesting conversations aren't necessarily...

    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.

    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

    Oh my God, the truth in this is unreal.

    I have often wondered about the dynamics of the

    phrase 'intellectually stimulated' ! Should it be interpreted as a plea for somebody who can string a few sentences together or for someone who has a Medical or Law Degree ? I have a long list of hobbies which I pursue including Steam Engineering, Marine Diesel...

    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...

    and having deep conversations that go beyond "hey how are you?" I don't mind having long debates and deep conversations about all sorts of subjects whether it's philosophical, real-world, whatever. I don't shy away from politics or religious topics either if they're brought up...

    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.

    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 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...
