    They have such a high opinion of themselves - probably leading to their happiness.

    Yes I am happy I'm clever. A lot happier now you recognised it.

    They understand things and dont struggle as much as others, they get to go to the best Universities and feel aggrandised.

    Yes its due to effort and putting in the hard work to learn more things and gain a better knowledge. Someone in my school who always used to mess about changed massively and put more effort in, passed his A Levels and is now going to UCL. It can be done. Its just how much you want it and how much time you put in.

    They get to come up with good ideas and think with great clarity of mind.

    Thank you for the compliment.

    They get pleasure out of writing essays about interesting topics while others' brains just struggle and don't have the minds necessary to digest the question and be original.

    Yes they do have the minds yet don't have the motivation to adapt their minds to keep going to achieve academic success. Its all about commitment and dedication. Yes some people may not be good at essays and things but quite a lot of those people are very gifted doing physical work

    All of these amazing blessings are handed to the intelliectually gifted by complete chance and luck. There is no justification for it other than they did well in that one chanc one gets before birth in the genetic lottery. A competition that dictates the happiness and satisfaction of your whole life.

    Its not believe me. You commit yourself to put the effort in and then you get the rewards for it.

    These people bloody awful.

    I thought it was gonna be a rant about noam Chomsky and stephen fry etc but not about people who can write
    an original essay. That doesn't really make you an intellectual.

    Sir,
    I believe that this is yours:

    This is awesome; I might get one and then have a laugh about the irony of it with all the other intellectuals

    You're right it is a lottery as to whether you're born "clever" or not, but many people do work hard throughout their education to get to the best universities. And not all of them are arrogant.
    Do you really think you're any better than these "horrible" people by posting a rant on here. Instead of moaning why don't you study then maybe you could be an intellectual as opposed to whining about them.

    jealous much?

    Apart from anything else, many people who you see as "intellectuals" are just people that work harder than others. One of my friends did 8 Intermediate 2s last year, studied loads, and got 8 Band 1s (>= 85%); he's never been amazingly talented intellectually but excelled because he put the effort in. It is incredibly annoying to see generalisations like this (not that I don't expect it on TSR ).

    Indeed, you point to the fact that intellectual ability is given by luck; why, therefore, should you hate clever people? Most never boast about their results. I got among the best in my year last year but I didn't put them on Facebook and if someone asks I just say I got all As. Most people I've met are the same.

    Of course, there's always the possibility that you are trolling, in which case it's a pretty good effort .

    Wow, you're all getting trolled.

    The thing that really hurts is the fact that it's such an obvious troll. 1/10 for the troll story. But 7/10 for execution.

    You've explained very well why you are not an intellectual. I.e. you think clever people just sit there and become clever. Excellence is a habit to be learned.
