Read a book recently. I won’t name it as the comment I am about to make would be unfair. But it was a good book about people who fall right of the bell curve. Written by a smart man with an IQ in the 130’s.
However, his thought process came across sloppy and hard to understand to me. Not hard to understand as in too smart to understand, but hard to understand as in too stupid to understand.
He is not stupid, but it just showed the difference between someone with a 150+ IQ trying to understand someone with a 130+ IQ.
Now most of the population has an IQ of 100, and we live in a world where the dumbest people shout the loudest and get given special treatment therefore the media and other organisations cater for them, so we have to deal with people with a low IQ on a daily basis; I realized today that having a high IQ is basically a curse… how can you find people to communicate with properly when even someone in the top 1 percentile seems stupid to you?

This isn’t meant as an oo look at me post. It is a serious question.
Started crying while reading this
Not understanding != Shit post
I feel the same way as OP when I read poetry.
All I’m seeing is that the black one is just a little bit taller
I want to fucking not be amer being amer fucking sucks i hate being me
It’s like they’ve never been on the internet before and don’t realize they are the laughing stock of the whole world
What do you want to be instead
The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
Free Verse by Robert Graves
I now delight
Of the might
And the right
Of classic tradition,
Without let or omission,
Just any little rhyme
In any little time
That runs in my head;
Because, I’ve said,
My rhymes no longer shall stand arrayed
Like Prussian soldiers on parade
Stiff as starch,
Foot to foot,
Boot to boot,
Blade to blade,
Button to button,
Cheeks and chops and chins like mutton.
My rhymes must go
Turn 'ee, twist 'ee,
Feelings, Now by Katherine Foreman
I genuinely do not understand these poems and would fail a literacy test on them
Literally fuck poetry dude
Delivering food is not work
