What am I talking about? You either don't understand or disagree, you are normal I'm probably not.
Doctors say that minor illness from time to time is good to your health; we do lots of things during the day trying to stay alive or doing things that are good for health. Stop and think about this, you'll know in fact this isn't completely true.
Some intelligent people, I mean those really intelligent people, they may think that they are ahead of everyone else around them most of the time. At least some of the smart people I know are thinking like that. There are of course smart intelligent people out there that are also very wise, they are mostly doing something good for the human kind or making a dent in the Universe.
To some of them intelligence, either acquired or gifted, is illness without symptoms in my opinion. Until the symptoms surfaced they wouldn't know they have been carrying that illness all along. Because they don’t see symptoms (funny enough we dumb people see these symptoms clearly), and are not suffering from anything, they will not look for a cure. In some cases there are lots of so called friends, colleagues (those that pretend to be intelligent too) around these intelligent people dosing additional poisonous praises.
It’s a great pity for them, especially those intelligent and lucky ones, that words like defeat failure setback aren’t vocabulary in their dictionary.
I was talking to a young fellow recently who is working for a very intelligent boss (his word, not mine). I gave him a puzzle to solve, i.e. a magician gives him only one chance to open either one of 2 boxes, one containing his strengths another his weaknesses, which one he’ll pick to open and see inside?
I prefer to be dumb (healthy and wise) most of the time and get smart (illness) only once in a while.
I don't mind to be unfortunate as well, misfortune is blessing in disguise anyway!
