Intelligence
Posted on Tuesday, January 8 2008 @ 23:39:50 Eastern

Intelligence is a funny thing. Logic, common sense, IQ, power of the mind. What is it? Who is intelligent? Is intelligence the same as common sense? I don't think it is, see many people think I'm intelligent, I'm not going to say I am or I'm not but that's what people have said about me. On the flip side many people have also said I've got minimal common sense and I'd say this is true, if a little harsh. I like being seen as intelligent, even though I have no idea how it happens. I speak to someone who I've known for years and the subject of how we met will spring up, it's then when I find out that their first impressions of me were, invariably, 'funny', 'intelligent', 'stunningly handsome'. No, I made that last bit up, they don't say that... though I'm sure they think it. Hell, there's a guy on my course who I barely speak to who told me the same. The point is though what is this funny thing we call intelligence and how is it made apparent in some people but not in others? I know several people who are incredibly intelligent and we can have some very deep conversations when we're not pratting around firing paintballs at each other or polluting each other's pints at every chance like children but at first glance you wouldn't guess it.

I often think, while spell checking my work, it's my way with words that projects this vision of 'intelligence' on to others. Perhaps this could be regarded as intellectual 'fluff' though I do try to stay out of things that are out of my depth.

I don't give a damn if you think I'm intelligent or not, all I know is I know enough to get by and enough to know I know next to nothing in the grand scheme of things but I am curious, for those of you who do think I'm intelligent, why this is. And why you think anyone is intelligent, or otherwise for that matter. Hey, if you want to explain your notion of 'intelligence' itself go for it.
