    i often pretend to be stupid,
    especially since in my workplace, for say, no one values when you know something others don't

    People are almost always willing to believe they are smarter than you. That can be a useful tactic.
  • Lizzy Nick Name 2012/12/09 13:35:12

    It`s a very useful tactic. People can be off guard when they think you`re dumb, then get the surprise of their lives when they realise they`re dealing with someone who is Not Dumb. Never be too revealing is something that will always work to your advantage. :0)

    I look at it this way; if you are a good listener, your retort will be more of a surprise and respected.

    Keep in mind that 50 % of those you know are below average. (It’s a math thing.)

    To me, you learn more by seeming "quiet", "ignorant", or "average" because people feel inclined to explain and say more.
    But I do love seeing the looks on their faces when you prove what you do know.

    If you mean that I'm cunning or know how to pull off a stunt, prank or trap for someone then that's my strong point. I don't consider myself the fastest thinker especially when it comes to ideas so you'd have to let me think some more for that cause I was born an average intellectual guy. not your average brain prodigy. But I speak fluently and intelligently and that fools many people into thinking I'm trained brain but I'm not really.
  • Illjwamh 2012/12/08 01:23:20

    Yes and no. I generally make no effort to hide my intelligence, and my friends tell me I'm smart and whatnot, but I'm not a very eloquent speaker, so sometimes I wonder how much it really comes across.

    Then again, I'm sure some people are under the impression that I'm smarter than I really am too (if them putting me on a level with people I consider to be impressively clever is any indication), so it probably all evens out.

    A girl's gotta have some fun! I like to play dumb and see what happens for my own entertainment (usually people assume I'm an idiot because of how I look). Sometimes I like to just be ridiculous and make dumb jokes like a 16 year old pot head because that's pretty fun too.

    There are times when it is better manners to not let on just how much I know. Totally depends on the group setting you're in.

    Intelligence is intimidating.... I have always considered education a lifelong pursuit, which is a dramatic difference from how many of my peers view education. Its no mystery that people who are constantly putting an effort towards learning are going to be more educated if not intelligent than people who do not.

    I don't consider myself really smart, just informed and knowledgeable on some things. I don't let extended family members know that I know how to fix computers or software problems because I don't want to be the free repair guy to all of their problems. I know it sounds selfish but when I was working the calls we would get about the most trivial operation aspects of a OS wasted a lot of time. It seems nobody RTFM as it is easier to call someone.
