If intelligence makes you solve common problems faster and gives you confidence and an advantage over other people, it’s fine.

If intelligence makes you create powerful stuff that gives you social recognition, it’s fine.

If intelligence makes you practical and determined and hard to be fooled, it’s fine.

If intelligence gives you street smarts and swagger, it’s fine.

If intelligence gives you social power, it’s fine.

If intelligence makes you money, it’s fine.

If intelligence makes you funny, it’s fine.

If intelligence makes you cultured and personable, it’s fine.

If intelligence makes you click with the people around you, it’s fine.

If intelligence makes you click with another person specifically, it’s fine.

If intelligence gives you sexual imagination, it’s fine.

If intelligence makes you win, it’s fine.

But if intelligence makes you isolated, a freak, awkward, un-adapted, if intelligence makes you score high in IQ tests but low in social life and low in the world, then your intelligence is a pile of shit. In other words, intelligence on its own means nothing. It’s how you use it in your own advantage, and in advantage of the people around you, what makes it valuable.

If you’ve got it, use it.

Again, I repeat…

If you are intelligent, just fucking use your intelligence.
