I really don't mind if others I meet are as smart or smarter than me, it makes intelligence or talent seem like less of a burden when I realize I'm not the only one it causes to know 'too much' at certain times. I'm a solitary extrovert at times because people think they can pull you back in after you realize that they think they control what others are able to learn or imagine.
Then again it's even more outstanding nowadays if you aint a solitary extrovert or introvert.
Maybe those people who managed to be not are the ones who are the smartest ?!
"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
OK cough it up NT's. Who are the smartest people you've met in your life (can be online people i suppose)? Are they snarter than you? What types do you think they are? I'm particularly interested in INTJ answers.
1. the infomation and the vision are the key, not raw intelligence
2. I have serious doubts that free will extist
3. I don't talk to people for the most part so it is hard for me to say.
My smartest friend was INTP, although he wasn't very introverted, and not extraverted either. He went to national physics contests, he learned English so fast when he was little that people would crowd around him to ask him words lol. And he would come up with surprising solutions when we were doing math.
How am I supposed to know which is the smartest person I met? It's not like I can measure their intelligence.
Smartest people that I know were mostly INTJ's, many of my good friends are INTJ's, and most are extremely intelligent. In addition, it's great to have someone that you can study for as long as you want but still not know what they are thinking.
