most of you are letting first impressions blind you to the merit of any subsequent posts. And you aren't permitting another explanation for his faux pas to pass into your brain once you've decided s/he's arrogant. .
I'm so intelligent I am not intellegent enough to recognize that referring to other people as children and intellectual gnats when I have done nothing of any real world consequence will be seen as pompous and completely unbelievable. Then when challenged to prove my statements about my strategy game prowess, I decline, because nothing proves how intelligent you are like refusing to prove it.
Ari, anyone can come on to an internet forum and proclaim they are much too intelligent to sound intelligent. In fact, as noted, there is a whole flock of misunderstood geniuses around here if you were to believe every single person who declared themselves above the common crowd.
The thing about intelligence though, it's worthless except in application. If you're so intelligent that you can accomplish nothing and relate to no one, you aren't really that intelligent at all, regardless of what some flawed test might tell you. Being good at a test doesn't mean being good at life. Being good at life, in case you haven't noticed, is a way more useful thing than scoring high on a test. In other words, being a genius on paper is nothing to boast about. Come back here when you discover something on par with the theory of relativity. Or invent something at least as cool as an electromagnetic microscope. Until then, whenever you talk about how brilliant you are, I'll think you're full of ****.
