Is a certain preferance a sign of intelligence? Are people with a high IQ too smart to enjoy MTV? Do you have to only listen to music that's not mainstream, read certain books and only enjoy deep movies to be smart?
I don't know but I think the smart people are the ones that don't limit themselves by trying to act and think as certain stereotypes.
no sir, i'm glad you addressed that though. although intelligence certainly shows similarity in interests, in no way intelligence related the music we listen to, what we watch and what we read. as for enjoying MTV, as soon as you realize most of the stuff on there is fake (about 90%) then what's the point in watching false reality? it's gone from music television to what LC is going to wear on her date with jason. it's the same with religion ( don't attack me here plz!), as a fact, the more intelligent you become and more educated you are, the less you start believing in religion.
"Do you have to only listen to music that's not mainstream, read certain books and only enjoy deep movies to be smart?"
this isn't the case for me, as of now my myspace song is akons new song. i think the "backpacker" society, (not liking mainstream stuff) is a bunch of pseudu-intellectual elitests. although elitests are known to be smart they are (IMO) part of the 15%. what im talking about is this way of thinking that 80% of humans cannot grasp what is happening, 15% understand whats going on around them but choose to do nothing, and the 5% are the enlightenend ones.
i'm not claiming to be part of the 5% by any means, probably the 15% because i don't apply myself to pretty much anything.
i'm glad i could answer your condescending questions! <3
