Marilyn Monroe is a classic example of pop culture overriding legitimate wit. Exceptional thinker.
Stupidly valued for her bosoms.
Wanting to be someone else, is a waste of the person you are...
I think that when you are famous every weakness is exaggerated. (...) Goethe said, "Talent is developed in privacy," you know? And it's really true. (...) Creativity has got to start with humanity and when you're a human being, you feel, you suffer. You're gay, you're sick, you're nervous. You are a creative expression of your own humanity.
Intelligence is presently a term of obfuscation; IQ a form of insecurity - it's what many people speak to when they require recognition without achievement.
Status quorums designed to protect power - rarely to uplift legitimate talent.

Do you just wake up this profound or do you build up to it?? You freakin' used "obfuscation" correctly in a sentence! If you apply "eschew" or "grandiloquence", I'm building a shrine. lol

My point of view is often underestimated. I guess it doesn't help when I don't fight my views when they get looked over, at least thats what I used to do. There are just some people that are expected to be smart and I am not one of them. For instance I have an ISTP and ENFJ friend who I used to play games with a lot. The ENFJ was often giving his opinion about something and read the rules before games or at least he skimmed over them. He is really good with computers as well. There was a time when me and him were disputing over a rule and the ISTP automatically backed him up because it was just easy to assume he knew what he was talking about and I didn't. Funny thing was that it turned out I was right but the effort I had to put in to prove myself to these two was rediculous.
I guess what I'm saying is I don't think it is wholly dependant on temperament because it seems like ENFJs NTs and SJs, from my experience, seem to be deemed as "compotent" at least compared to me. I think what people don't get about me is I don't open my mouth or make a statement unless I am sure about something. It still sucks that I have to constantly prove myself compared to these people, I guess some things will never change though.

-Totally- agree. I wonder why this is? I know I get treated differently from other people, of course when i confront people about it I never really get a good answer...and sometimes I just live with it but acting this way with me especially when I haven't known a person for an extended period of time is definitely the most annoying part of human interaction
