“I have met many people who were infinitely smarter than I, and their intelligence was obvious to me within a few sentences of conversation. Conversely, I have met other people who were quick to inform me of their supposedly advanced intellect, and in most cases they were not very bright at all. If you have to tell people how smart you are, then you probably aren’t; and if you ARE smart, everyone will know it regardless of what you say. Do not get hung up on showy displays of college degrees, awards, etc. because they may not be a good indication of a person’s ability. I know a great many people who never received a degree of any kind, yet they are some of the most knowledgeable and respected engineers in the field. Similarly, I know too many people who have advanced college degrees and have awards and recognition plaques all over their office walls, yet they are incapable of doing the simplest engineering designs. Like most people, I have tremendous respect for a person who is obviously brilliant yet downplays it.
Concept: If a person is extremely intelligent, it will be obvious to everyone after a casual conversation. However, the people who brag about their own intelligence are rarely as smart as they want you to think they are. The most talented and brilliant people will often say the least and listen the most.” #dumbasses #redforemanapproved #jethro_bodine #igraduated6thgrade #fuckyoschool #autodidact #askmeaboutneutrinos #bartsimpson #fuckyocouch #universaltruths #universalknowledge #tap_in #o_negative #aliendna #starchild #indigopeople #light #energy #supernova #harnessingmagneticgravity #comingsoon #tachyonbeam
