People Dont Like Me Because I Am Smart.I don't try to please people anymore. Because I can't sort the good ones from the bad ones. And the more I see human behavior the more it disappoints me. There is sort of a cult of fear, hatred, stereo typing. I don't think it is new, but....
I always was a bit different. I used to think it was my hair color ( which was marshmellow white when I was a kid ), I was taller than most of my friends. Etc. But when I was about 30 years old I tested my IQ, and resulted in an IQ of 155. I was perfect in every category but my speed. So I am a slow genius.
Well, people are not tolerant of slow genius. ( It is really just because I can think out more things at a time, so I am processing more variables than most people ). Anyway, I experience something like a jealousy towards me. A hatred because I make people look bad maybe, or I make them think by talking to them. Or I am somehow judging them by understanding something a certain way.
There was a time when I was misdiagnosed because of my intelligence. Just trying to understand the world around me.
So why are people hateful towards intelligence ? And what can I do if 1 / 6000 people has the same IQ as I do ?
How can I be mentally stimulated and satisfied. And not feel like me brains are an insult to people.
