Have An Opinion?
The only time I find intelligent people annoying is when they're skewed in one type of intelligence but severely very lacking in another. An example is like someone who tries to talk about the quantum theory at a barbecue to a group of people who aren't the slightest bit interested in the subject, but so lacking in social skills and self-awareness that they keep going while others are confused and uninterested and trying to change the subject.Similarly, I had this one colleague who was a mathematician and as brilliant as she was in mathematics and algorithms, light-heated humor just seemed to fly over her head and she would get easily offended and come back with a mean-spirited sarcastic response which wasn't the slightest bit funny. Also talking to her felt like talking to a robot in some sense. She had the resting bitch face and would barely ever smile or laugh, so I found her company rather unpleasant in general.
In contrast, I had a friend who was a medical researcher and she was quite brilliant. But she was sociable, smiled often, had a big sense of humor, and she had an inquisitive tone about her which made her come across very modest and humble and eager to learn. So I never found her annoying.
All I know for certain is I don't go around pumping myself up all the time because it is a major turn-off to anyone around. I tend to play myself down and even criticize myself to the edge of believable and that for some reason draws people in. Human nature maybe? Anyways, a women that is smart and educated but does not have the sense to exercise humility, is still stupid/ignorant in my book, and that is a real turn-off as it reveals her arrogance and narcissism.
What would give you a sense that a woman is pumping herself up?
She can't turn it off and continues to talk shop e. g. or continues to talk up all her smarts and wisdom. That gets old with anyone quick.
Correct me if I’m women but it seems like men say they want intelligent women but what they mean by that is that they want someone they can hold a conversation with but isn’t smarter than them
It depends on how you ask.
Yeah but it’s true... come on haha
I wouldn't mind a woman that is smarter than me honestly. As long as they don't shove it down your throat I don't see where the problem lies.No one likes when someone who is smarter than you tries to prove it constantly. But if they are able to show some humility, then most guys I know would not have a problem with dating a female who is intellectually superior.
Nope... I married one! She's a smart ass, a smart aleck, and just plain smart! I love her!
I loved someone who was smarter then me. Anoyying is when she become a smartass😉
And there are kinds of smart. I knew girls who where smarter but less mature. And some had both so they where fine. Not all the guys will like them but some of us do
not normally no unless it comes with a big dose of arrogance too
Yes. Annoyingly sexy. Mind you tho, intelligent ≠ manipulative.
I would prefer a intelligent women with a bit crazynes combine that would never annoy me
I find women who are compelled to tell me how intelligent they are to be annoying.
Only the leftist crazies
Not if they have social skills and self-awareness.
Not me, the opposite is true though.
Nope i like them
