They are also less happy than dumber people, since the latter accept others with all their annoying little imperfections.

This is just an excuse for edgy teens who live on 4Chan and have anxiety to convince themselves they're special geniuses. Einstein was a badass womaniser who used to speed his car and Feynman was a playboy who used to pick up girls and play bongos.


This is another part of the ''I'm so smart and misunderstood which is why women don't want to touch my penis'' circlejerk.

According to usage rules, fewer is only to be used when discussing countable things, while less is used for singular mass nouns. For example, you can have fewer ingredients, dollars, people, or puppies, but less salt, money, honesty, or love. If you can count it, go for fewer.

Some English A-Level/Uni student is probably going to shoot me down for this...

Oh great...just what we need...now neckbeards will have an ever bigger superiority complex. Whatever helps them sleep at night, I guess.

Oh damn l'etranger beat me. Great minds think alike: I knew I was a genius.

I'm a virgin with zero friends and that's why I'm a genius.

Calculus is cool and all that, but definitely it's a bad way to assess intelligence. Outside academia those people who would be considered most intelligent would be top businessmen, military generals, warlords and politicians i.e. people who have to constantly navigate complex environments rather than some creepy old weirdo who is quite good at manipulating symbols.
