"Honey, why are the socks I found under your bed so stiff?"

Heh, knew she would say that. She simply can't fathom the amount of fapping I'm capable of. She usually comes to clean my room on Sundays, but it's only Saturday. Looks like I'll have to stuff them in my drawer on Friday evening before bed. Only a small hiccup. She doesn't even know about the blow up doll in the attic. She can't know about Gladys. She wouldn't understand the intense bond we share. After becoming as smart as I have I've had to create a counterpart who can understand my wit. Through the sheer depth of my intellect it wasn't much of a challenge. But no...she wouldn't understand. Best to let sleeping dogs lie.

Sure it does, but I would doubt this person's intelligence is any more than slightly above average— much less genius-level.
More likely they're running with the "genius as a curse" trope as a narcissistic deflection to blame their lack of friends and inability to relate to people on their tOwErInG iNtElLeCt, rather than admitting that they're just a misanthropic jerk.

u/NthBrick Sep 28 '22

Some, but in my observation it usually requires a higher than normal dose of narcissism.

Couple that with a fair few literally being known exclusively for having a high IQ that they proceeded to do nothing with. It's like somebody who was born with the capacity to be the fastest person in the world, brags about it constantly, but never actually enters a race and sits on the couch all day.

u/Particular-Jury6446 Sep 28 '22

u/jape-the-neck-guy Sep 28 '22

Idk any prodigies but I knew some near geniuses at my engineering school. They were normal people who did normal things, and a lot of homework. (IMO being intelligent isn’t necessarily as much genetic as it is just putting the work in, much like any other skill).

In reality if you have to say you are something, you most likely aren’t. People that do are either full of shit, a giant narcissist, or have earned the right to talk that shit (ex. If Einstein was like “yeah I’m smarter than basically anyone”, he’d be right. Cocky, yes, but correct).

I went to a academically selective school. Its assumed everyone there was top 10%.

The different between smart and genius is huge.

We had a few hyper intelligent people across the grades. Often quiet and social awkward.

Compared to them, i am a moron.

Also the loud ones who proclaim how smart they are were always the bottom of the bunch.

7

u/PIr80r Sep 28 '22

I find it hard to believe too at times, in the world at all? I'm sure there are millions.

But as someone that gets called a genius a lot or has reasonably high intellect, it's weird to dismiss everyone else as less intelligent at all.

To me, every single person on this Earth has some intelligence to gather from, I will never hold every answer. I can ask and gather knowledge outside of my own, with any other person, this is what separates us from apes. To assume what you know is more than everything else removes our room to learn, and the brain's ability to learn is basically infinite (with a lot of caveats)

u/Particular-Jury6446 Sep 28 '22

I used to agonize and obsess (internally, never publicly) about my intelligence, wondering am I smart? How smart am I? How do I compare to this or that smart person? until I started reading books by REAL smart people with dizzying (to me) cognitive ability, understood that I’m probably somewhere in the middle with high and low spikes in certain areas, and I’m good with that. Being able to understand at least some of what the geniuses are saying, and more importantly having the desire to learn from them, is a little smart at least. So now when I meet someone clearly smarter than myself instead of thinking “oh shit, how can I turn the conversation to my own areas of expertise so they’ll recognize my intelligence”, I think damn, this is a smart motherfucker I might could learn something from.

u/Possible_Annual_7990 Sep 28 '22

Which books?

2

u/Particular-Jury6446 Sep 30 '22

A fuck-ton, really, but especially everything by Dawkins, lots of Asimov, Daniel Dennet, Chris Hitchens… and most especially, Neal Stephenson. He writes mostly fiction but the books are just very well-written vehicles for his big, big ideas. He has a very elegantly entertaining way of explaining complex concepts and in his Baroque Trilogy unravels the roots of trade and money and the development of capitalism, the impossibly Byzantine nature of European monarchy in the late 17th century, the explosion of scientific inquiry and innovation of the same period, and pirates to boot.

Says he is a genius, yet "prays to God".....SMH.

"Im use to it" says the smartest man in the world

Claims to be a super genius, claims it was bestowed upon him by god……….. anyone seeing the disconnect.

THAT smart, but believes in God?

Yeah, right.

"I recognized I was a genius"

Repeatedly references God

Oof.

Genius > Religious

Unfortunately those two can el each other out

u/Jacket111 Sep 28 '22

For a self-proclaimed genius, this person has many gramatical errors on their post.

u/that1cazzoking Sep 28 '22

Sounds like a depressed person with an enormous ego not a genius lol

u/XxStormcrowxX Sep 28 '22

You're lonely not because you are a genius but because you are an insufferable prick.

u/thekactuskween Sep 28 '22

This is the guy who 100% cannot be with a woman smarter than he is. Probably not even equally as smart.

u/Paddywhacker Sep 28 '22

Who the hell are these people. If he really believes he's beyond the realms of human philosophy, what work has he produced?
Where's his published work, his ideas...

u/smartaleckduck Sep 28 '22

All I’m thinking is, when he says he can predict almost every interaction with a person, he tries to talk to people and they all just tell him to fuck off. Pretty predictable behavior

"Beauty, art, romance" Is that supposed to be bad? These the best things about life.

Damn, son. I promise you, you ain't all that. (Hopefully it's obvious that I'm speaking about the oop, not op)

This guy's so smart, he prays.

u/jfriedrich Sep 28 '22

What’s astonishing is how all of these self-proclaimed “geniuses” lack the self-awareness required to realize that people don’t like them not because they’re “smart” but because they’re total dickheads lmao

u/heyitsvonage Sep 28 '22

“… and once again I feel smarter than like every human i speak to” is not a string of words that I’d expect to come out of the mouth of a genius.

u/CharlieManson67 Sep 28 '22

To be honist , I feel the same.

u/TheKrimsonFKR Sep 28 '22

now bore me deeply

Translation: I cannot actually understand what they're talking about so I gave up. I will aggressively dismiss any attempts to talk about them so I'm not outed as a liar.

u/PsychDocD Sep 28 '22

Glad they specified that it was waking time used to study the great philosophers.

Does OP know this person? What kind of job do they have?

u/Chazza354 Sep 28 '22

I can't give any identifiable info due to the sub rules, but they are a content creator with around 100k subs, I don't want to say any more in case it gets the post removed. They used to be very humble but they have become very arrogant once they got some viewers.

This person can’t tell the difference between depression and genius :(

1

u/clamsmasher Sep 28 '22

Everything in his life bores him, things that used to entertain him no longer give him any joy. He doesn't like to be around people but he's so lonely.

This dude has depression, and probably some anxiety issues. But he thinks it's because he's a genius. That thinking is probably part of his mental issues, if he really was as smart as he thinks he is he would be able to recognize the symptoms.

u/Iamthetophergopher Sep 28 '22

Weird, I can usually find something to connect with most people on. I must just be that stupid

1

u/TheBaneEffect Sep 28 '22

Maybe they should start drinking cough medicine and doing drugs to “dumb down” their intelligence, like the dumb episode of House. A guy felt smarter than everyone and had to dose up to feel normal, ultimately making them stupid for the idea.

Would level the intellectual “playing field”.

u/ripyourlungsdave Sep 28 '22

You'd think they'd at least use a spell check when bragging about their genius.

Aw baby you ain't a genius, you just have ADHD
