Intelligence is underrated. People, who have a cute face get more attention than people with a cute brain. And as awkward as it sounds it’s still pretty obvious that people tend to go for the look. While they really should be going after quality and character. That’s also what I’ve been dealing with in my posts about Appearances versus character.
You, as a person, should always go for the feelings. If you feel comfortable around a person, then eventually, you’ll end up being friends. And if the opposite is the matter, then, probably, you’ll never want to be friends with this person. Just a way of life. And a healthy life to be exact. Because at the end it’s your life. You decide which person can take place in it and which person not.
Coming to the Tumblr post: “Intelligence will never stop being beautiful”. Yes. It won’t ever stop being beautiful. Because with intelligence, there comes empathy. There come understanding and deep thoughts. Before you understand me wrong: I’m speaking about the kind of intelligence, people without arrogance have. The kind, people know how to use. Intelligence, a human being uses for good things from which he and others can benefit. When it comes to adjectives, I’d call this person smart, not intelligent. Because a smart person is able to use the given intelligence in a way, arrogant, but intelligent, people can’t use. Especially women think that being intelligent is a risk factor in being attractive. They think that men tend to feel inferior if the woman is smart. Maybe even smarter as him. As a result, they pretend to be less smart. Even dumb, just so the beauty of their appearance comes to the fore. On the other side, women get jealous if a man compliments another woman because of her achievements. Achievements made through her intelligence and smart behavior.
I just can’t stress enough that this behavior is wrong. People who can’t stand the fact that you are more intelligent than them, don’t deserve a part in your life. You should surround yourself with people who know your strengths and your talents, and support you. You should feel free to be yourself with the people around you. It’s not that everybody thinks differently because of your intelligence. Someday, there will indeed come a person who loves you exactly for who you are.
And may it be that you are smarter than them: They will be proud of you because of that.
