    Katie Hopkin is an attention whoring asswipe, but it's quite obvious to me that she's very intelligent. I have my doubts whether she even believes most of the absurd views she says she does, but she's clearly very good at trolling and earning media spotlight (and therefore money) out of it.

    The fact that you're so butthurt over her shows how good of a troll she is, and why she's earning so much money out of it.

    And while being a good troll does not necessarily mean you are intelligent, she was arguably the strongest candidate in the Apprentice series she entered and would have been in the final if she didn't withdraw from the process herself. Assuming we're not strictly referring to academia and rote learning, entrepeneurial skills like selling, negotiating, creativity, leading and managing are important. And she was very good at all of these regardless if she's a ***** or not.

    You did not just use Katie Hopkins as an example of an intelligent person. :lol:
    She got straight A's at school and did an economics/politics degree at Exeter university + has amassed a 4 million networth just by understanding the way to wind up people.

    I have to deal with ~50 stupid people on daily basis, I just ignore them, otherwise if not, I'd be already put into mental institution.

    I read so many wonderful books that in comparison to the writers everyone seems stupid to me.

    I adapted by spending even more time reading books and wearing headphones everywhere I go.

    I don't adapt to stupid people. I ignore them.
    I don't either; they adapt to me. :grin: :laugh:

    Drift: arent you male
    Me: I was undergoing a phase where I thought I was male when I created this account
    Drift: wtf is this a troll
    Me: stop oppressing me

    A rather uncolourful conversation unfortunately.

    The inanity of this conversation is actually really funny, or well you've provided it in a turned-out-to-be-humorous way.

    Just nod your head and just say 'yes' and 'mhmmm' while they're talking. Works for me.
    Ditto! Happy times! I think if you can convincingly feign an interest in whatever they're talking about, that constitutes a good start.

    Yeah. The word 'vapid' doesn't even begin to describe the characteristics of the conversation you quoted...Overall, though, I just feel profoundly sad for those lacking the inclination or intellect or desire to engage with 'intellectual' ideas. (I do realise that can be a nebulous term, at times.) Current trends in scholarship and research across a huge range of fields are so vibrant and beautiful: how could anyone not want to engage with these? People could at least read a few basic introductory texts to pique their interest, you know?

    I find it really hard to adapt to stupid people. Did used to know someone who was rather stupid. His text messages were impossible to decipher. (it wasn't text speak, they were really badly written) As for talking to him - I'd get just as much sense out of my parents dogs...

    You adapt to their behaviour. Make them talk about themselves more so they do about 90% of the talking while you ask questions. You can't tell a stupid person their wrong as they won't consider it and think there's something wrong with you. So just ask questions. So in your case you would just ask her how she came to that reasoning and then try and end it on a positive note that makes her feel like you've taken her advice on board.

    The reality is you're going to meet stupid people all the time, so learn how to become more tolerant about it.

    I avoid them, personally, which I know is mean but the "stupid people" I'm used to having around me can't spell or use grammar correctly, always brag about themselves like they are the best thing ever and thinks it is perfectly fine to have about 5 girls on the go. Though there's a difference between being desperate and being stupid, this guy I know is literally both.
    For example, he was once dating 3 girls and made individual Facebook profiles for all of them under the same name and profile picture thinking he wouldn't get caught. He's my boyfriends childhood friend and when he became single after being outed as being a cheat, he believed it was okay and socially acceptable to try and persuade me to leave my boyfriend for him, then wondered why my boyfriend then hated him for it.
    That's one example of many. A year ago he got £40k and spent it on crap and used it as a tool to make girls interested in him, and within 6 months, he had no money whatsoever left. I just don't understand how some people are stupid enough to do that! If I got £40k I'd save it and use it responsibly, but he doesn't have the mental capacity to think ahead like that.
    These kind of people frustrate me so much, so I just try to socialise with them as little as possible. Stupidity isn't necessarily their own fault, but avoiding them saves me getting angry and irritated by what they say and do.
