I Want To Have Intellectual Conversation

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 320 People

    I'm craving intellectual stimulation.

    I'm in my third year of university, and I absolutely love it. I love learning about the mind and its capacities, about psychology and the mechanisms of the human brain. You would think studying all the time would make me want to relax at the end of the day and let my brain relax...

    I Like Ot Have Intellectual Conversations Also

    I am a curious person with a love

    for learning. I almost hate the way that sounds myself, "a love for learning"- It just sounds like propaganda: stay in drugs and off school kids! Growing up I was obedient, keeping introverted by still I was a dreamer. As life progressed I broke out of my shell and learned to...

    Conversation Or Debate?

    I guess my question is "can you agree on a topic and still have an intellectual conversation?". In my opinion I think it may be difficult to break down the topic without entering it from different points of view. Without different approaches you really can't use the other...

    You know I act very different here on Ep.

    When Im messaging people here, I am more comfortable talking about myself. In real life, not much. Im usually on the receiving end of conversations. I barely talk about myself. Maybe because there isnt really much to talk about that they dont know already. Maybe that is true or...

    I just made a vow to myself to never pity again.

    Never make myself stoop so low for anxiety's sake. And if people can't accept my weirdness. . . Oh well, **** them.

    To Ask Or Not To Ask? That Is The Question

    I don't know if other people do this and I'm not sure if this is exactly the right way to describe this but I am the type of person that asks a lot of questions. They can be small, trivial little nothings or they can be seriously personal. But why do I ask them? Well for many...

    Shallow conversations get dull fast, I like to talk about the deeper things in life, how to be better people, how to help the world, philosophy, morality you name it.
