The "whatever's on your mind" thread

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 183.2K users

One of the things that's great about this forum is its randomness. Well, this is the epitome of it: a thread for whatever random thought happens to be passing through your mind.

For example, I've just been struck by the most random craving for Taco Bell nachos.

    MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!l!

  • @Icedhope said: Life does have meaning. IQ is just a number..I can gurantee I'm about as intelligent as anyone with a degree.

    I can appreciate that. I always thought IQ could climb throughout life. As for evidence, proof for that ...it's a mixed opinion . There's lots of experts who say yes, lots who say no.

    "Just a few years back, the IQ of a human being was considered as something that is genetic and cannot be improved upon. However, various researches by eminent scientists and neuropsychologists have proven this myth wrong."

    That's the sort of stuff you'll see on this. I've always felt that you can improve certain aspects of your "intelligence" throughout life.


    If I wasn't so insecure I wouldn't cling to that number. I'm just seeking approval from some of my family who has always made me feel like a out cast. Suddenly, because I can express myself a little better socially, they think I'm smart. Isn't that funny? It's sad too...it's frustrating for me as well.

    I've always had a hard time fitting in. It's why I found forums.

    I don't doubt your intelligence. I don't like to judge even because I know how it feels to be judged . We cling to alot of things that are just numbers because we're insecure or need proof and evidence to guide us. I guess it's no way to live though. I don't usually boast about my IQ . It wasn't at a genius level. But it was higher than average . I'm just feeling bad about myself right now.

    So I ate a fatty Wendy's burger and then when I got home my grand parents were telling me how impressed they were by how I present myself now. I guess it's because I feel so stupid right now because of college. Not that I get bad grades, but I don't get great grades either. But that doesn't bother me, it's the fact that I can't hold a conversation with most my class mates because they think they're better and more important to me.

    Everyone clings to something eventually , or for a time. Something in your past, something you did, or that challenged you.

    I've been put down most my life by people for my intelligence, only truly getting approval from my professors and people who have talked to me one on one about various issues I'm fluid in talking about.

    Doodo? Is that you? Either way your classmates sound like dickheads. Work really really hard...and show them up by succeeding at something you love. It's what I'm doing.

  • I hope it is I miss Doodo! and Davies! he hasn't posted in ages!!

    I've never taken an IQ test in my life and I probably never will. Why? Because those things are depressing and can't possibly provide a completely accurate assessment of a person's intelligence. From what I understand, it really provides an assessment of your logical reasoning.

    I'd say that what's the most important is bettering yourself. Every class has that person (you probably know who they are) who just seems to *get* everything first go and asks all the really insightful questions and gets hundreds on the exam that everyone else failed. I've been friends with *that* person. And the truth is, *that* person wasn't doing all the things I was doing out of class. They weren't learning martial arts or singing in a choir or getting in arguments on internet forums. They were going home and working for that class. They were working in a lab every spare second and spending hours discussing things with professors. And that's what they enjoyed doing.

    So instead of focussing on how your grades don't measure up, think about the things that you do outside of your education and how they make your life more full. If you still feel that you'd rather have the grades and the answers... well, then you know what to drop.
