Actually I am very glad I stumbled across this question, I've asked myself that many times, I feel that I'm one of a small number of people who think about somethings that nobody thinks about, has my look on life and sometimes I wonder:<br />
- It's either my depressions making me not see the world clearly, maybe I'm the one who can't understand<br />
- Or depression has no affect on that part and that I just think about more stuff and have stronger feelings towards certain things than most people<br />
- Or people are so dumb and my depression opens my eyes to the real life..
While it may seem ironic depression is more correlated with contentment. Idle time being one of the major reasons for depression. It appears that certain humans are predisposed to depression once daily survival needs are being met. It is why that you find depression and suicides are more prevalent in affluent neighborhoods while significantly less so in the ghetto. Their appears to be a mechanism in man that requires us to face daily survival. When that is removed, our bodies seem to create a sort of internal drama, called depression. So in a long winded way, intelligence is tied to income/comfort so indirectly intelligence is tied to depression.
Did you just make that up?
no his speaking sense, when we have something to work towards we have sense of purpose fighting for survival gives us purpose
That doesn't make sense to me. I'd say no.
It is a sign of awareness. It sucks the more you know.
I don't think its a sign of intelligence but it might be a symptom. Also look into "Depressive Realism"<br />
I don't see how that could be
No... it is a sign of suppressed feelings, especially anger.<br />
It must be
Idk for sure but I think so.
poor people can't afford to get depressed
It depends on which matter is depressing the depressed person ! I've seen many genius who were depressed with their unsolved math !
Yes it is!!! Over Analysis Leads to Mental Paralysis. <br />
It is sign of intelligence applied in wrong direction. Wisdom would do the necessary correction.
