Why do people get intimidated by me?

I'm VERY smart of my age if I must say so. I realize a lot of people especially guys and older women dislike my intelligence and try to keep me down.

Why is this? Why do people think I'm idiotic and can be swayed?

  • they probably feel that way because you're way ahead of the average person at your age on a mental capacity:D you go gurl!

  • I think they're more intimidated by the fierce raccoon on your sweater.
    Also, if you're under 18, you aren't a 90s kid :p

    • Lol I am a 90's kid. Also it may be the raccoon. It sprays lol xD

  • If they disagree with your opinions then they're not trying to keep you down. People don't think you're idiotic when they try to sway you, they just think that you're a normal person and they're trying to change your opinion. Truly smart people change their opinions when they realize the merit in a new one. If you stick to your guns that just means that you're dedicated to what you believe.

    • Thanks for the vote down

    • I didn't say you were. Also who said I voted you down?

    • I was referring to the person who voted me down, not necessarily you but rather that person. But the second response was more of a continuation to my response

  • I have to say it is because of two things:

    *your age (most adult want teens to "stay in the child lane" socially)
    *you may give off an air of arrogance to others because u are aware of your above average intellectual capacity (I've dealt with this first hand so I know the feeling)

  • Probably because you are good looking on top of being really intelligent

    • Then I would definitely think that there's something else besides your intelligence that's intimidating people

    • Could be.

  • Oh, thank God you deactivated your account.

    Good riddance.

  • I have the same problem, except I'm also physically stout as well, which I guess is scary to some.
