    I can see from the many threads you've posted surrounding this topic that it causes you a lot of distress. However, as long as you self-identify as a sexist and never try to change, you will never have fulfilling relationship with the kind of woman you are looking for. That kind of woman knows what she's worth and would avoid potential mates who give off misogynistic vibes.

    Thanks. The applied science/engineering divide isn't strong. They don't seem to be too different.

    Date foreign. What you describe is largely how American women are expected to act, but it isn't universal.

    I looooooooooooooooooool'd at the part about running. I am a long distance runner and have that problem when my female friends go running with me.

    I don't see why you are getting harped at so much in that thread. I simply read it as you going down the reasons why you think you are incompatible. That and I really don't understand why everyone needs to be in a relationship anyways. Some people are happier alone.

    Here you go, hope this makes you smile: http://www.jokes4us.com/dirtyjokes/womenjokes.html (They can be pretty offensive but that's why I like them)

    You should had read at least the first page of the thread before responding. Then you would had known that I met her abroad and this contact via Facebook started once I got back. That changes a lot of things.

    big difference between the INTP and INTJ that I've heard is that the INTP tends to focus on one thing and obsess over it, while the INTJ has trouble staying focused on one single thing

    you got it backwards

    Thanks, all credit goes to my parents. It's the summation of a working philosophy I learned from a man who exemplified it and a woman who explained it. The greatest generation, indeed: they understood how the real world works. It's a shame that the best and brightest have so much trouble accepting that which demonstrably works.

    Yeah, you got flamed. But what you wrote is simply what adults in the 130+ IQ range say over and over again when interviewed by researchers. The academic literature on children is voluminous, for adults it is sparse. For a non-academic introduction to the subject, I usually recommend two books:
    The Gifted Adult by Mary-Elaine Jacobsen
    Gifted Grownups by Marylou Kelly Streznewski

    You could make a career of that at NOLS or Outward Bound if you enjoy working with young adults.

    I would actually like to hear specific numbers on those tests - not the AP exams, though.

    I think it's pretty strange you got flamed as much as you did on the thread msachase91 started. I really didn't think either of you were bragging at all. Anyways I just wanted to say I enjoyed your posts and you should have got more praise for your responses than you did.

    I think I know exactly what you mean. The post made some people resentful, because they don't have the "high IQ" I'm lucky to have. others, it probably frustrated that I was looking at things in a much more negative manner than I should have been.

    I absolutely love to learn new things, and I'm constantly striving to learn more - about myself, people around me, society n general, molecular biology (haha). Science just seems like the perfect way to really gain accurate knowledge and make informed decisions abut things (have I mentioned how apathy towards "politics" really bugs me?)

    It frustrates me sometimes to be "under" people who I am clearly smarter than. Good example: I tended to perform lowly in classes where I did not respect the teacher's intelligence. That totally changed in college, with all (or at least, most) of my professors. I struggle as well to "deal" some people, especially when I haven't had their problem, but it's important to remember that a lot of their struggles are due to nature or nurture. They can't help it any more than you can help your own flaws and weaknesses. I do tend to struggle as with isolation sometimes. I like to vent to my parents or closest friends (all introverted and intelligent). And I've found this forum to be rather liberating as well.

    I read that book a long time ago, but I remember it struck a chord. I'll definitely give it another read when I get the chance.

    I've fund that I have had an easier time making friends since I started my job. I work with Alzheimer's/dementia patients in providing basic care, and doing this naturally brings me close to the residents I care for, as well as my coworkers, who deal with the exact same frustrating/wonderful world of healthcare.

    I've made one pretty close friend who is a highly extroverted ENFJ, and is quite intelligent (and freakin' cute). She has a big social circle, and we've started to hang out more outside of work. i think this is one of my best leads towards a more rich and fulfilling social life.

    Hey man, I appreciated your posts the other day. I was a bit down in the dumps, so I was looking for an excuse as to why I felt that way. It probably looked like I was bragging, but I truly wasn't. I was just very unhappy with myself, and was frustrated that despite supposedly being so smart, I still have issues with confidence and sociability.

    Your post didn't flame and helped me ignore them for the most part. And you made some very interesting points. I'd love to talk more in the future.

    I'm sorry, I already said I ain't that bright. That does sound more fun.

    you recieve backlash because no one gives a fuck if you're smart. do something with your intelligence, dont brag on an anonymous internet forum like you're better than people.
