Posted June 04, 2018 09:23:30What do you think about the topic of intelligence?
What do I think about?
I’m a human.
I don’t have to be the smartest person in the world to be a good person.
That’s just not who I am.
I’m not really interested in what other people think about my intelligence.
I want to be able to express my intelligence in my own way.
The thing that worries me about intelligence is, what is it about myself?
If it’s my job to be an intelligent person, what are we doing?
I don.d like to have people around me who are intelligent but I don,t think they’re going to like me because I don t think they know what I am doing or what I want.
I think they will like me just for being me.
When people say, “You’re intelligent,” what do they mean?
Are they saying, “I’m a smart person,” or, “What are you doing with your life?”
I don ,t know.
Thats a really tough question to answer.
The question is, are we in a time when people are just talking about what intelligence is?
Do we want to talk about intelligence as an objective, meaningful quality?
Or do we want people to talk more about intelligence, as a quality, as something to aspire to?
There is no one definition of intelligence.
There are some things that are very good at math.
There is some thing that can be very good in chess.
There’s something about a person that can’t be measured by anything.
So, the more you try to define intelligence, the harder it is to measure.
The thing that scares me about the intelligence community is they don’t really care.
They care about how many of these words they can say in one sentence about themselves.
We have a lot of people who are doing good things.
They have amazing lives.
They are just not interested in making sure that their intelligence is the greatest possible quality.
It’s not about me.
I can’t tell you how many times people have told me, “If I had your intelligence, I would be a great lawyer.”
Thats like a lie.
Thats not true.
I have the highest IQ of any person.
How much intelligence is it?
I think it is a matter of perspective.
If you have the same intelligence, you are not going to be successful.
I just don’t think people really know what intelligence really is.
The other thing is, if you are an intelligent professional, if that is the quality you aspire to, then I don’t see why you should be worried about your intelligence.
If you are a child who is born in a poor family, you have no idea what intelligence can do for you.
You don’t know if you have that same intelligence that is in someone who is smarter than you.
If I had that intelligence, my life would be better.
I would have more money and I would do better.
If my intelligence was in that person who is a very successful person, my career would be very different.
People say, “Well, I have this great talent.”
But, what talent?
What kind of talent?
If I have an IQ of 20, I could become a very powerful businessman.
If IQ is just the number of letters in a word, how many words could I write?
There are no words.
So how many would you write if you had that IQ?
Thats just stupid.
You should be concerned about the quality of your intelligence and the quality that you want in yourself.
You should not be concerned with whether someone thinks you are smart.
You shouldn’t be concerned that people are talking about you.
People have no right to be concerned.
