Why do people base intellengence on how you write, or, how you word things, or even on what you know for that matter. I have no clue what I am talking about when it comes to math and science, but when it comes to buliding a wall or fixing parts to a car I am great at it. I can do money handeling quicker than alot of people. I was reading at a collage level in 6th grade. I got an above average score on the ACT (24). I don't know how I can not be calasified as smart but I got into a conversation with Joel that sparked this thought. Just because I couldn't spell well and I failed at math and science I was put in special ed. Labled as a dumbass in school. I don't think that that is right.


(If this confuses the hell out of you it might I am drunk off my ass and talking out of it too.)

Perhaps your lack of brain cells is attributed to the fact that every night you appear to be "drunk".

Oh
And...
intellegence = intelligence
handeling = handling
alot = a lot
collage = college
calasified = classified
labled = labelled

But I think that the reason people "base intelligence on what you know" is because how much knowledge you contain is a good reflection of intelligence. The more you know, the more you are able to learn.

You are confusing intelligence with common sense and being able to survive in the real world. What you mean is that most people think being able to take tests well means that you're smart.

In this, the Interweb Society, spelling is the only way we can judge you. When you spell like a moron, you get treated like one. It's that simple.

you cited the discussion between you and i as the reasoning for this rant/thread and thus either you or i caused this percetion of unintelligence, and if i think it was you making you feel stupid you wouldnt have posted this, as you cant verily rant against yourself.

Is there not a fair amount of difference between someone who is 18 years old and has had schooling and a 5 year old who has had very little to no schooling whatsoever?

I actually don't do that, unless it's a typo or a dyselexic fuckup. I usually catch those seconds after typing them, though. Yes, I do type this grandiose normally. I speak this way to. Odd, eh? Some say I'm histrionic, but I doubt it.

As FA said, this is the only way we can judge your intelligence, and while I don't think you're as dumb as you look, its hard to verify this short of actually meeting you.

That could be because English is your second language. Studying and developing a language in school is very different from learning it in "real life". For one, when you grow up with a language you pick up the mistakes your parents may have in their speech. Obviously, things get fixed in school, but I get the feeling that our educational systems aren't/haven't been as strict in teaching students their native language (or at least out of the six schools I've attended in my life, only one of them (the one I'm currently in) has taught me something other than the basics that I've remembered).

I think everyone is smart in thier own ways. Everyone has an area of strength that no one else has. In my opinion, intelligence can't always be calculated on education levels, # of books read and blah blah blah. I have a friend who can't read, but he's really good with cars and is a extremly talented guitar player. He can also problem solve better than I can anyday. He also can't spell very well, but if you get fucked with on the street, you'll want this guy to be on your side, no doubt about it. He's actually smarter than alot of people I know, and tougher too, mentally, and physically. Fuck the common understanding of intellect, I think it manifests itself best when it's unconventional.

I have to agree with Melanie, though. When you're expressing yourself in your private journal, you needn't concern yourself with how others perceive it. However, when you are attempting to communicate with others, I do feel you should try to make your thoughts presentable, even (dare I say) understandable.

Say you speak two different languages. When you walk into a room with people who only speak one, and proceed to ask where the bathroom is located in the language they do not speak, you are going to become frustrated very quickly with their lack of comprehension.

Spelling and grammar really aren't magical talents. In fact, the wonderful thing about them is that practically anyone can learn.

Most computers have spell check features, don't they? Failing that, there's www.dictionary.com or www.webster.com. There's always the old-fashioned way; I reach for my dictionary beside my keyboard almost as often as I reach for the mouse.

If you decided you were going to spend the day painting your loved one's room, you'd probably do a pretty good job of it. You wouldn't splash colors and drip brushes all over the furniture. Being careful is a way to convey that you care about him. Communicating with your friends is pretty important; why not take a moment to do it as well as you can?

I know you're intelligent, and pretty sweet, too, but when I see posts like that, I tend to think (of anyone, not just you), "For the love of Pete, have a little self-respect for what you are saying, if not for those who have to struggle through it!" That's a prejudice on my part, but there it is.
