I Need to Be Intellectually Stimulated

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 10,735 People

    I love to read and watch documentaries

    and to generally have my mind expanded in ways that leave me feeling curious and humble. That's why I love programs like "Cosmos" and "Through the Wormhole." They educate me and make me feel tiny and grateful... both for all that they teach me and for helping me to barely...

    It's seems like people talk just to hear their

    own voices. Yes I have a bit of social anxiety. And yes I am an introvert. But I can't help it. I have zero interest in mindless chatter. Life is borrowed time. Let's talk about something other than fashion, sports statistics, or the neighbor's cheating boy/girlfriend. BORING...

    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 feel so empty in this house,

    there's zero stimulation. I live with a narcissist who is empty as a drum. I need to have real conversations with people, I need stimulation... To feel art to speak to people with knowledge. I feel like my potential is dying out with this life. I need people who have more to...

    I think that's why I want to leave Manchester

    for London. I know it's not financially savvy but right now, it feels like the right thing to do.

    I Need Intelligence First

    Things that exercise your mind are wonderful!

    Sometimes you chat to people who get you to question your own thinking, ideas that you hold dear. Great when that happens!

    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 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...

    Reading And Getting Involved In Discussions...

    Is always a good start. The difference between us and the beasts is reasoning, how can we improve our reasoning without having to await the changes the years we add to our lives? Active involvement breeds a renewal of our thought-patterns, and so we grow intellectually before we...

    I'm drinking wine and eating olives alone on a

    If you use the word sapiosexual to describe

    I'm a woman, being physically stimulated is

    relatively easy. A thought can get me wet. What I crave is intellectual stimulation, questions or a conversation that gets the grey matter going on overdrive, but what to do?

    This has made life more interesting.

    I find myself neglectful of escaping crazy conversation... Mostly I start it, anxious to see where two minds end up when there is a spark.
