    I'm one only because I post on here at night and are too tired to think properly, yet still make a fool of myself by posting on here and sounding like a stupid idiot by talking about things that I don't properly understand. By using too many words in my sentences so that I sound like I know what I am talking about very much.

    They're everywhere.

    Go to a college campus and sit in on a student-run political theory discussion. Or, if that's not your dish, listen in on an undergrad Film Theory roundtable.

    Go to an Art Exhibition.

    Attend a wine-tasting event.

    nah their's a ton. I'm neither an intellectual nor a pseudo one, but I think this site does have a fairly high concentration of them.

    and pseudo intellectual is somewhat different then an idiot.and idiot is someone who is a moron but isn't nesserily trying to look intellectually superior. while a pseudo intellectual can be called an idiot, they often don't realize that's what they actually are. an idiot can realize he's an idiot and still be an idiot while as soon as a pseudo intellectual realized he's an idiot can no longer disilluision himself into thinking he knows more then every one else on a subject(s). Shit maybe I am a pseudo intellectual. that probably doesn't make sense.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Admittedly I am new to MBTI so I am not quite so aware of inter-type "sensitivities" and such.

    It isn't a matter of identification (or maybe that is their underlying problem?) but classification. It is to everyone's benefit that we call a dog a dog and a cat a cat. However, some dogs want to be cats so they meow like one.

    They told me if I went to college I would meet smart people and be happier. At college, though, I mostly just met the same people from high school that I hoped I'd never see again after graduation. Whoops.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Fair enough.

    I don't know what I'm arguing, really.

    I think an appropriate question to ask would be: "How does one determine intelligence objectively?" You need a tool to assess who's a cat and who's a dog before drawing any conclusions. One's own judgment of intelligence probably isn't accurate.

    I'd love to hear a dog meow (while I see the actual dog in person, and can make sure the meow is coming from its natural vocal mechanism).

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Meh, all the world's a stage. Progressions in life are just different acts of the same play.
