    SPACEghost good question. My answer is last b/c I just saw this question and am giving you another thumbs U. Read my answer and I would much appreciate the same if it is half way intelligent.

    Spaceghost

    You know I'm through with you, I'm not the type to argue, some from now on I leave you alone and YOU return the favor please.

    Spaceghost

    ole hipster, I 'm through with you, I"m not the type to argue, and you have been trying to stir up something with me. From now on stir clear of ME AND I'LL DO THE SAME TOWARDS YOU. I'll not answer your questions or comment and you do the same towards me.

    "misunderstanding can be even more dangerous than no understanding at all" so how about we get started and explain ourselves to be understood?

    doublehelix

    who wants to go first i'm volunteering to be the judge :)

    doublehelix

    hahahahahahaha

    ole hipster

    Funny you should bring this up considering former q&a! Intelligence is relative.

    ole hipster

    Whatever it is you are mad at me about...please enlighten me..I mean no harm and do not understand your comment

    ole hipster

    doublehelix..you crack me up...way too funny!..haven't laughed so much over anybody's comments in awhile..keep on keeping on!! lol

    ole hipster

    So-o-o spaceghost, you don't have the gonads to answer my above comment. So be it. Go back to exploring female orgasms with stupid question.

    I know everything, just can't remember most of it.

    Spaceghost

    Come on Randy, keep trying.

    Compared to a couple of my buddies whose brains are as big as a "BB" in a boxcar. Hell yeah, I is smart.

    We all have the potential to be "intelligent" if we are serious about it and put in the work.
    Intelligence is learned mostly and then to a lesser degree environmental and some luck as well.

    Spaceghost

    Thanks so much for your input Raider, needed that. T.U. for you.

    i think i forgot more than i know.....daren1

    Spaceghost

    You're alright daren1, everyone has knowledge that's a fact.

    NOT ME IM DUMBER THAN A BOX OF ROCKS......

    Spaceghost

    I don't believe that, YOU are intelligent daren1 in more ways than one.

    ole hipster

    Hey, I haven't heard I'm dumber than a box of rocks in years! Brings me to mind of a wonderful friend in the south of the US who is now deceased and who used to say that all the time! Thank you for the pleasant memory jog!

    I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed but I know how to get the job done.

    Roger Willcoe

    Looks like we got ourselves a think tank.

    Spaceghost

    Hey that's all it takes, thank you so much Jenn for your input.

    Spaceghost

    There you go my man.

    This question actually hurts my intelligence. Why do you ask. Everyone has a certain depth of intelligence in them. Look at idiot savants for instance.

    Spaceghost

    Come on ole hipster, the question was not meant to hurt anyones intelligence, I really can't believe you would think I'd ask a question to insult anyone well I'm sorry, and you were one of my favorites, MAN . I'm not stupid, I KNOW everyone has a certain depth of intelligence. I would have never thought YOU would be that sensitive. I sure I could find some of your questions that would piss me off, but I'm a better person that that. DANG

    Spaceghost

    I'm angry now, don't YOU think there were worst qusetions on this site than the one I asked ?

    Spaceghost

    Like I said ole hipster just stay clear of spaceghost please.

    I think that i'm intelligent enough to learn new things everyday :D

    Spaceghost

    That's wonderful, I like that, that's the way it should be. Good answer D.

    KNOWLEDGE IS ALL ABOUT HOW YOU IN PERSON DEFINE IT,
    IF YOU SEE KNOWLEDGE AS SOMETHING SUCH AS KNOWING ALL THE MATHS FORMULAS, THEN HOW YOU SEE THE WORLD IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING LIKE; ANYONE WHO IS NOT AN ENGINEER, DOCTOR, DENTIST, IS A LOSER


    OR MAYBE A PERSON WHO ONLY KNOWS THIS QUOTE AND UNDERSTANDS IT FULLY AND ACTS TOWARDS IT, SUCH AS "HONESTY IS THE BEST" HE TO SOME OTHERS IS KNOWN TO BE ONE OF THE SMARTEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD


    IT ALL DEPENDS ON HOW YOU DEFINE IT BUDDY
    IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN

    Spaceghost

    I'm NOT your buddy first of all, I just asked a simple question and some of you are just blowing it out of proportion. I'm not a engineer, just a plain old SOF GUY. But we have genius people like George on the site.

    doublehelix

    so mean, another one like george on this site, filled with meanies,
    telling me youre not my buddy, feel like crying :(
    by the way, what does SOF guy mean?

    I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance....Socrates

    Roger Willcoe

    Another Socrates quote that seems to be correct, au moins dans ma vie.


    The more I learn, the more I learn how little I know. -- Socrates

    Spaceghost

    Thanks Roger, Socrates was a great philosopher.

    Spaceghost

    Thanks Roger, that's a very good quote.

    I definitely have more "common sense" smarts than "book" smarts. Not much gets passed me but recently I enjoy learning about things that I didn't care about in my earlier years.

    Coach

    Spaceghost and Jenn. The 3 of us should sit back and enjoy some cold ones and watch all of the brainiacs solve the world problems. Who else is in?

    Jenn

    Like I said we get the job done. wink wink

    Spaceghost

    That's good coach, I'm the same way, common sense will get you a long ways.

    Spaceghost

    You are so right, thanks Jenn.

    Spaceghost

    Count me in coach, I like that.

    Intelligence is an illusion and involves perception. Someone may have a high functioning brain, yet fail at having a vivid imagination, which is the doorway to your spiritual awareness, so there are many varieties of intelligence. Imagination is the most important thing.. now, combine varied intelligence AND imagination, and you have.. a genius! :]

    Spaceghost

    Very true statement. Like you said there are many varieties of intelligence, I learned that in my psy. class PSY 126. Thank you anonymous_sender.

    Spaceghost

    Samandella, I agree with you 100%. Doesn't it make you sad to see bright people with no drive or ambition, that could really go far? Keep working with whoever you can to help them reach their goals. You're a wonderful person.

    samandella

    I see perfectly bright individuals each day who are potentially capable of so many wonderful things and yet have no drive or ambition to do anything with their knowledge and abilities. That makes it so heartbreaking when I see a below average student who struggles so hard to do well and still cannot achieve. I always say, give me a student with average intelligence that has a great work ethic and a drive to excel, and with some hard work, I can help them reach their goals!

    Two things tell you when your going senile.


    First you start to loose your memory.


    I am blowed if I can remember the second.


    But if I could not have a laugh I would cry my eyes out. The old jokes are always the best

    I'm a genius. I just don't know how to unlock my potential.

    Spaceghost

    Couldn't have said it better anonymous_sender, very true statement. Rushie54 keep striving you'll unlock that potential.

    anonymous_sender

    well start with knowledge that you absorb naturally because you enjoy it, then utilize your imagination around that knowledge. It will unlock itself, it's mostly about being passionate, and persistent.

    I think the answer lies in "Whole Brain Thinking" as written by Daniel Pink in his book: "A Whole New Mind".

    Mindblade16

    Thanks, that makes me feel good ^_^

    Spaceghost

    Thanks Mindblade16, I'm going to buy that book.

    Spaceghost

    Good I want you to feel good and be happy, nothing but love 4 you.

    my mum tells me so

    Spaceghost

    Good for you username, your mum is probably right.
