I dunno wat it means but it made me smile :)

Best Answer

Intolerance is more the result of a lack of vision than a low level of intelligence.

Best Answer

I don't think so. But it's fun to believe that it's true.

Best Answer

Kinda, inverse. But I think that its not a lack of intelligence but a lack of education that is to blame for a lot of intolerance.

Best Answer

Yes, the less intelligence the more intolerant the person, generally.<br />
<br />
Usually not political, social, financial, geographical, etc....ignorance is ignorance.

Best Answer

More the inverse, but everyone is different

Best Answer

Maybe. I tolerate most people, but I have no tolerance for dumb people.

Best Answer

I think there can be a relationship between the two sure. I wouldn't say intolerance is a defining characteristic of intelligence. You could make the argument that intelligent people while in a debate will be intolerant of anything nonsensical or frivolous that does not add to the debate in one way or another. I would have to agree with the majority that intelligence has more to do with being open minded rather than intolerance.
