Remember back when parents wanted us to sit in class and not play football? *sigh* See how the times change.
Being intelligent has always been the goal when it comes to parents and their wards in school. Being intelligent has always been the goal outside school. Period.
However, there are different types of intelligence. Just because someone is not linguistically intelligent does not mean they are logically unintelligent.
The Twitter page of the Morning Brew, an online business news platform, tweeted a question which brought in a lot of response.
What is a sign of intelligence that most confuse with a sign of stupidity?

The comments were certainly insightful. Take note. You just might learn something new like we did.
Here are 10 signs of intelligence that people confuse with stupidity.
1. The brain is on hyperdrive
Thinking faster than you can articulate. Often comes out in a jumbled mess, but only because you’re thinking faster than you can speak.

2. Being nuanced is now considered unintelligent?
Maintaining an understanding and appreciation for two opposing ideas or beliefs at the same time. Most look at at it as hypocritical or maybe someone who is “too stupid” to have an opinion but it shows an ability to process information even when you may be predisposed against it

3. We can’t even speak our mind in peace.
Saying “I’m not sure.” It’s an invitation to learn or analyze further, but it can be seen as a failure or “gotcha” by those who expect immediate answers from intelligent people

4. We live and we learn.
Finding another person's point of view to be better than your own, when appropriate.

5. I can’t be a SJW.
Not having a strong opinion on EVERYTHING

6. Should be easy to say but alas.
Admitting being wrong
— LukeCannon.eth 🐦 (@lukecannon727) August 15, 2021
7. Because we are dynamic beings.
Changing your mind after learning new facts

8. Context highlights content
Providing context. People act like providing context is caping when in fact, it’s vital information that can provide important information as to what may or may not have happened

9. Ask away.
Asking the question everyone else is too embarrassed to ask

10. I talk to myself shamelessly.
Talking to yourself
