ON THE SUBJECT OF AUTHENTIC INTELLIGENCE – A DEFENSE OF SORTS | by Jessie Nagy

IT SEEMS THAT A GREAT PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE HOLD AN ATTITUDE TOWARDS THOSE THAT CONSIDER THEMSELVES HERMETIC/INDEPENDENT INTELLECTUALS TO BE ATTEMPTING TO COMPENSATE FOR A SORT OF SOCIAL INADEQUACY OR INFERIORITY COMPLEX BY LATCHING ON TO THEIR OWN DEFINED IDENTITY, OR ARE DELUDED, OR IN SOME WAY PRETENTIOUS, IF SUCH SELF PROFESSED INTELLECTUALS HAVEN’T FOUND IT SUFFICIENT TO HAVE JUST ACQUIRED A CERTIFICATE FROM SOME SORT OF CONVENTIONAL ACADEMIC INSTITUTION BY PURCHASING THEMSELVES SUCH A CERTIFICATE OR HAVING OTHERS FUND TOWARDS SUCH A CERTIFICATE.
THESE GREAT PERCENTAGES I’M REFERRING TO ARE NOT THE GODS WHO SPECIFICALLY STUDIED THE HARD DISCIPLINES, SUCH AS SCIENCE OR THE TECHNICAL MATHEMATICS, BUT JUST THE AVERAGE FOLK WHO MERELY PURCHASED, OR WERE FUNDED, SOME COURSES THAT WOULD BE RECITED IN A CONDENSED & DILUTED FORMAT TO THEM FOR A FEW HOURS A DAY PER 5 DAYS FOR CERTAIN PERIODS OF A FEW YEARS.

THIS ATTITUDE HELD BY THE PERCENTAGE I SPEAK OF IS AKIN TO THE ATTITUDE THAT IS TYPICALLY EXECUTED WITH THE RETORT OF SOMETHING TO THE AFFECT OF :”IF YOU’RE SO SMART, THEN WHY AREN’T YOU RICH?” THIS SORT OF ATTITUDE IS COUPLED WITH THE NOTION, MAINLY INCULCATED BY THE FAST-PACED MAGORITY WHO THRIVE OFF OF INTUITION, THAT A FORM OF EXTREMELY EXTRAVERTED &/OR CUNNING DRIVE MUST AUTOMATICALLY BE ASSOCIATED WITH BEING HIGHLY INTELLIGENT, NOT GRASPING THAT EXTREMELY ABSORBED REASONING GENERALLY INVOLVES THE SEPERATION OF SUBJECTIVITY & THE EGO.

PEOPLE WHO ARE HIGHLY INTELLIGENT ARE THAT WAY BECAUSE THEY NATURALLY LOVE/REVOLVE REASONING FOR THE SAKE OF IT, & NOT MERELY FOR IT’S PRACTICAL ATTRIBUTES OR BECAUSE IT COULD BE CHIC. (THE SUPER-GENIUS CHRISTOPHER LANGAN, (ALMOST IN LEAGUE WITH THE GREAT WILLIAM SIDIS) FOR EXAMPLE, IS TANTAMOUNT TO THIS DESCRIPTION. YOU CAN SEARCH HIM FOR YOURSELF.) SO IF YOU ARE WONDERING ABOUT AUTHENTICITY OF CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS INVLOVED WITH INTELLECTUALISM, I WILL STATE THAT THESE ARE THE TYPE OF PEOPLE WHO ARE DOING SUCH THINGS LIKE TYPING THEIR OWN ARTICLES ON THE INTERNET.

PRAGMATIC SUCCESS IS NOT NECESSARILY A MARK OF GENIUS OR EXTREME INTELLECT, BUT RATHER, GENUIS & EXTREME INTELLECT IS MORE OF A MARK OF BETTER REASONING SKILLS, QUITE OFTEN TIMES WITH AN “EXCESSIVE” FANATACISM.

THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE FEATURES ESSENTIALLY NO KNOWLEDGE OR PROFOUNDNESS. IN A PARADOXICAL SENSE THOUGH, IF ONE IS CLEVER ENOUGH, ONE CAN DERIVE PROFOUND CONCLUSIONS BY ANALYZING IT FROM A DISCRIMINATIVE VANTAGE. THE PEDESTRIAN BABBLING & INTERPRETATIONS BROUGHT UPON FROM THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE ARE DERIVED FROM MOSTLY DIVERTISSEMENT WITH A LACK OF INSIGHT, COMPLEXITY, OR EXHAUSTIVE SCRUTINY, YET, IT IS SOMEWHAT PARADOXICAL THAT SUCH A MAINSTREAM CULTURE TENDS TO BE THE LOUDEST OF IDIOTS.
