Best Answer

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.



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.
