They indirectly hurt by preventing mental stimulation. Nothing to stimulate the mind = loss of fluid intelligence. Studies have shown this with rats. Keep it isolated in a cage without any toys or mates and it will under-perform at various problem solving tasks when compared with rats kept together or with other mates.

I'd honesty trade 10 IQ points for a higher social-intelligence as that is what seems to determine success in this country.

One tends to take for granted the things they have.

Not according to Priest, if he means what he wrote in Deathstroke: "I have an IQ of 150. That means in a room with 10 people, I'll be smarter then 7 1/4 of them."


How many less at only 125? stick out tongue

This is an interesting point, given that there seems to be some kind of correlation between high IQ and debilitated social sophistication.

Being socially suave definitely helps out, makes a more fulfilling relationships possible, and even may boost one's career because people tend to gravitate towards those who are perceived as a life of the party, so to speak.

Intelligence is but a tool, when I was younger I valued it as if it was some sort of blessing but over the years I've nuanced its meaning for me and for others. As any tool, the way you employ your intelligence will be linked to your needs and opportunities, estimulation is very important to keep yourself sharp.

If you are not challenging yourself and fundamentally believes others won't challenge you, then there is nothing to be egotistical about in your smartness.

Do I think many people are smarter than me? Clearly, Because many people are. Were many more people smarter than me when I was at College? Clearly, because I had experienced almost nothing and book smarts was all I had. To believe yourself to be the smartest man in the room is always an error and one everyone from Machiavelli to San Soo warns against. Also believing someone else to be stupid is an error I learnt from watching Columbo.

Usually trolling, I used to do it when I wasn't an old geezer on these forums more than a decade ago.

lol

Your warnings about intellectual egotism aren't invalid, you just seem really obsessive over boasting about your age in almost every thread I see you in, and your articulation is often rather incoherent (what does Dawkin's The Blind Watchmaker book have to do with real life experience again?).
