Perhaps your link proves why some geniuses are jerks (it wouldn't load for me). But unless it proves that all jerks are geniuses, it's irrelevant to anything that I've said here.

@Olorinus: What? You did read what I was responding to, I presume? If you did, does the quoted part not seem like a necessary clarification? Or is a refutation tantamount to just "being defensive"?

I appreciate it if you actually share your thoughts rather than simply piping in with a facepalm. It's exactly that type of dismissiveness that fuels my perception that the lack of genuine regard in this forum is mutual.

The plight of the autistic is embodied when no matter how I explain myself, I am rejected just for expressing honest, well-intentioned sentiments. If I could legitimately appreciate irony, I'm sure this would be delicious.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

So you can take it when someone is better at football than you. You understand when people can sing like angels and play the guitar like a devil, and you can't, because you never put the practice in, or it just never came easily to you. People who have the patience for the mind numbing, critical jobs of accountancy or programming are amazing. If it comes up in conversation, OF COURSE you're going to send your jock friend out to wear out the kids and dogs at the party, or push your musician friend up to the karaoke mike and not resent him when you sound like a crow after. It's fine for the lead programmer to get set a task you can't do with her speed or efficacy. But god forbid she mention around the water cooler that she's a great programmer because she's exceptionally intelligent.

Why is it pompous? Why do people feel attacked, or looked down on when somebody says they're really smart? Why don't you accept the statement as being as self deprecating as a dancer or musician talking about what nature has bestowed on them?

I was a dancer, but beside Nureyev I was a toddler. As a singer, beside Pavarotti I'm less than a fetus, I'm an embryo. I skyped for years with Mindel, and beside her I AM a child. In fact now I think about this, I'm getting cross. Because I've skyped with enought OOT and Asylum regulars to KNOW that more than half of you think that most of the posters here are less intelligent than you are. From my point of view, THAT irony is as sharp as malice. And don't think I'm not aware that I'm also prone to judge other posters as less intelligent than me.

Other's have pointed out where he's come off as pompous. I'm not going to go back through the thread and find the key quotes. But I know he's referred to others as 'like children' to him. That's condescending. By continually trying to explain and justify his attitude, he's only reinforced his perceived superiority.

A really good dancer doesn't cringe at the thought of having to interact with all the rest of humanity because they are not such good dancers.

But a really good dancer might be distressed at being trapped into performing public productions with other dancers that are totally outclassed in comparison. How can they enjoy the dance, and feel that they have given to the audience, if the other dancers are wobbling around out of time with each other? How can they feel connected with those other dancers? Feel the exhilaration of a job well done? Any camradie behind the curtains?

Right, so I'm a pompous *** even though I've explained as explicitly as possible that I don't think that I'm better than anyone else here. No matter how I try to amend the misunderstanding, the initial social faux pas is done, and the damage can never be reversed.

And this is reasonable to you, and I'm expected not to find it infuriating.

Aripyanfar is articulating what I suppose I cannot.

Oh I'm well aware that Kachi committed several social faux pas. But 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. You know, I've sat in a lecture hall with a goddawfully BORINGLY VOICED lecturer, and a Godawfully SOCIALLY CRINGWORTHY lecturer, and a goddawfully UGLY lecturer, and been aware that 90 percent of the hundreds of students around me couldn't take in the wonderfully interesting information passing these lecturer's lips for most of the year because they couldn't get past one impression about who was talking in order to hear what they were actually saying.

Except me, in my amnesiac state. But most of you are still not letting any of Kachi's posts stand on their own merit. Even I will rate up a gbaji or Almalieque post if I think it has excellent merit in the form of information, facts or exceptional humor. This is despite a general wish to downrate every single post of theirs just because it's them.

I haven't been active in this forum for nearly 3 years, during which time I've learned a great deal about myself and become much better socially adjusted. And frankly, one of the things I learned was that posting here as a part of this community was very toxic to my personality.

To me, the most admirable qualities a person can possess are to be well-meaning and hard-working. I admire those two qualities greatly, much more so than intelligence, even wherein they achieve undesirable ends. I am very well-meaning, but not especially hard-working. I succeed in spite of it, but I don't think it's the least bit admirable of me. I squander a lot of my potential, so I really have nothing to brag about save for having some enlightened perspectives on topics of interest to me.

Is this really such a pompous view of the world or the self?

I don't think any of his posts here have any merit to stand on.

I think that the braggadocio from his earlier post is who he is. I find his awkward, "one-step-forward-two-steps-back" retractions that have followed it to be insincere. I've never seen him demonstrate anything resembling genius-level intellect on these forums, so I've no reason to believe his claims to it.

I'm nonplussed* that you'd think otherwise. He's offered no reason for you to be so forthcoming.

"Turns out I'm a fucking emo pussy" is shorter, and likely far more accurate.

You'd do better just saying yeah, that was a bit pompous, deal with it mother @#%^ers, or yeah, that was a bit pompous, but that wasn't my intention oops, but instead you came seem to be saying, well, actually it wasn't really pompous, just seemed that way, which won't resonate.

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 ****.

Besides, boasters are usually bores.

I just want to point out that, probably because of the autism, Kachi is trolling us now on Alma levels. I also want to make sure that those of you falling in to his trap realize that you are unknowingly enforcing his superiority complex. It's the usual suspects (Ari, BD, Eske), I'm sure Ari won't mind though this unintended consequence.

He thinks he's pulling something over on everyone else. Asking ingenuous questions to make you all think he's trying to learn something, when he's just making you post in circles, and nothing you will say will ever satisfy him. Like I said, smells too much like Alma- incomprehensible to us, thrilling to the perp; it's probably the 'tism.
