A high degree of intellect tends to make a man unsocial.
I knew there was a reason I want to talk less and less. My tolerance for small talk decreases everyday. I thought it was just a function of being an introvert.
Now that I ponder the intellect of those I interact with, this clears up a lot of things.
I am not trying to be anti-social, but my ability to put up with doing stuff I don’t want to do is a cost/benefit ratio. The costs often outweigh the benefits so I find that keeping to myself has made my life a lot better.
