I want to first say that, in my opinion, intelligence depends on timing. If you are logical/mathematically-intelligent person who specializes in a particular set of information to get into a job , then you’re intelligent for that. If you are kinesthically-intelligent, you’re most likely someone who is good at sports, etc anything that involves the use of your senses and your body. And people apparently make money by being seen playing (Yeah, I am not really a sports fanatic *big smiles*).
It seems like I am talking about whatever gets you a job or makes money is what;s smart but that’s not what I am saying. Money is an abstract concept to me, it is a “medium” to allow you into more experiences. I don’t really see money as something concrete (even though it is). And money is so important for our survival. Maybe oneday we might get a better way for capitalism than money, maybe something that’s more inclusive to people (Hey, it starts with a dream, RIGHT?). But….
Oh man that’s so typical of me. Getting lost in thoughts. What I meant was, intelligence is helpful if you can put it to use to have a living and experience life to the fullest using it.
My intelligence is intra-personal intelligence. Which if you asked me, is the most dumbest form of intelligence. But I say dumbest because I haven’t found the proper medium to use this intelligence yet. intrapersonal intelligence is the intelligence of the self and being aware of your subjective reality and how things can make you feel. It’s the kind of intelligence that can flourish in art, writing, fiction, poetry, etc. Writers and artists who combines this intelligence with linguistic intelligence,, in my opinion, are the ones succeed in the art area. (Linguistic intelligence is the ability to think in words. And how you use your words to influence other people, etc)
Ha! I twist things around in every stupid direction before my main point (laughs). What I mean is, I just know myself a lot of the times. And I am critical about myself. We are very complicated creatures and we need to be able to pull out the ball of strings in ourselves and then put them in their places. Change starts with yourself. It’s one thing to think you know yourself. It’s another things to ask yourself what you aren’t aware of about yourself. And then be brutally honest about it, going against your pride. And then know when you are being egoistical about being okay when you’re really hiding.
And this can be a good skill because it can go the other way around. You can try to understand why or how other people do what they do by being honest with yourself and saying, “What would I do if I were in such a position?” I can find ways to convince people and predict how others act using this intelligence. I am automatically always going, “How does THIS feel? What does it have to do with me? What would it have to do with them? Can I recall any past experience which is close to their experience to get why they are the way they are?” etc etc
And it can be a scary thing to see yourself doing terrible things in your own mind, but I just have myself mapped out to a degree that I just avoid the side of myself that literally goes into that dark side. It freaks me out to even say this, being all “want to do the right thing”-kind of person and all, but I can easily see my heart going to very dark places given the situation a lot of people get into. Oh man, I sound like such a dark smarty-pants, but what I am saying is, I don’t see people relating to that grey part of themselves very much. People don’t often think much in terms of motives and emotions. People tend to see things as black and white. If anyone asks me what I might do if anyone tried to murder my Mother (and someone did ask me this, just out of curiosity), I honestly answer that I’d avenge that person.
Oh man, okay, no more of this. I mean, everyone knows themselves. But really, how honest are people about how much they know? Even though it hurts my pride, I can tell that I need a lot of work. But really words do know justice. I honestly sounded extremely silly to myself because I couldn’t properly express these things how I wanted to.
What I wanted to say is, if you honestly think you are aware of yourself, you should feel scared about the extent your heart can go to, in love, hate, betrayal, etc. Because if you aren’t the kind of person who sees though life in ideals and romanticism, you may not get the extent of this darkness either. They seem like two sides of the same coin.
Oh man, this ALL still sounds so stupid to me. >_< Does anyone get it?Or did I freak you out? Oh I am scared. I am hitting publish. Here goes nothing.
Another edit: Not saying I am this kind of person, but I can map it out inside myself if I have enough information to understand someone else. And honestly, if none of you say something like, “Okay I see, you can map out emotions, motives, etc” or something like that, I will be genuinely scared and think I drove my readers away by being scary!
