Dude, no need to put words in my mouth lol It may be big enough but please resist . Half these things your saying I haven't even touched on. Since when did I say all geniuses are unhappy? The thread name comes from the other thread "Why are geniuses never truly happy?". Not my creation, just an expanse BTW There's plenty of air in my bubble haha

"The next time you meet someone who you consider superior in intellegence to yourself, you can continue protecting your own ego by thinking: 'That person is a genius, but probably not happy.'"

Good point I personally don't see the point though in creating a stronger ego. It's only a harder wall to smash in the end.

"Think of the concept of an unhappy moron - is that as impossible as a happy genius?"

Anything's possible But since when did I say it was impossible to find a happy genius?

" your whole point is based upon the made-up fact that there is a larger percentage of geniuses that are unhappy vs. non-geniuses. I'm simply reminding you that you may have not met enough to make that sweeeping statement..."

Thanx for the reminder that there are not a lot of geniuses But since when did I say "...there is a larger percentage of geniuses that are unhappy vs. non-geniuses..."?

I do have a lot of air in my bubble if no ones noticed But as I said, my only concern is truth...and that means the extinction of that which is simply false This is not saying "I'm right, your wrong", but it may be INTERPRETED by an unclear mind as "I'm right, your wrong". All it is is truth which is applicable 2 EVERYONE, yes even me.

"...being 'content' is not everyone's happiness..."

Very true, but when some one is happy, they are content

"...nor is always getting shorthand acronyms right "

You got me there dude Told ya I was no genius

And who wrote that meaning? All meaning is interpretation, even mine

"1 A plural genii : an attendant spirit of a person or place
B plural usually genii : a person who influences another for good or bad "

Yes, correct. Influence key word. Influence leaves impressions. Impressions on the audience or observer. A genius has the ability to influence people. Isn't that what I said? "Impress us".

Genie (3 A : a peculiar, distinctive, or identifying character or spirit ) Us (the collective individual, [plural]).

Dude, why use 1000 confusing words, when 2 will do? LOL I should talk haha :P

Nothing is wrong, nothing is right. Words are pictures. All pictures are interpreted by the individual perception, even words. The only common thing amongst my definition and the dictionaries definition is description. Similar word pictures, but neither is right, neither is wrong. The dictionary has a more accurate definition. So be careful when you say someone is wrong.

Isn't there a problem in that the notion of 'tortured genius' is about as accurate as 'tortured artist'.

There are plenty of people NOT tortured or miserable but, damn it, they just aren't as interesting to us!

Trevek, as you are probably the only genius in Poland who is truly / really happy, should I change my signature to "I'll rather be right then a genius"? as geniuses are no longer in vogue and get called all sorts of unpleasant things

Case in point: A genius would be in bed right now, and I will be very unhappy tomorrow morning.

I'll rather wait for a second opinion from our genius in Poland before committing myself to such an important decision

go with majority on this one:

"I'll rather be happy than right" - gets 2 hits on google....both are yours.

"I'd rather be happy than right" - gets nearly 500.


'happy' and 'right' and not mutually exclusive.
