Sci help me.
>think i'm smarter than everyone.
>Know at the same time that i'm an idiot for believing i'm smarter than everyone.
>Still constantly find myself looking down upon others as though they're dumber than me.
This drives me crazy to the point of wanting to end my shit.
This can't be due to me browsing sci since it's been going on for a long time. Is there any way to cure cognitive dissonance?
You don't understand sir. i'm ducking retarded. I probably have an iq of around 100. I want to become smarter but at the same time love being a dumbass and actually fear becoming too smart to a degree. I probably tell myself this to justify my stupidity and unwillingness to learn and become smarter . It's an unwinnable game. Hopefully the conspiracy theorists are correct in their prediction of world ww3 occurring this year. Fuck this planet for not being technologically advanced enough to make me a god. Diagnose me.
IQ of 100 doesn't make you a retard. That's the average human intelligence, and it's a bell curve so most people are close to average.
Your problem sounds more like laziness though. Nobody is born good at smart people things like math and chess, they get good through lots of practice. Pick a skill you want to be good at, work really hard, and you'll be much better at it than most people.
this is normal, average people think they're smarter than just about everybody and when they see somebody who is demonstrably smarter they always justify it with "yeah but I'm better in these areas"
its just male ego
Don't cure cognitive dissonance, cause as much cognitive dissonance as possible. It'll teach you that you don't know it all, and there are multiple viewpoints that are all valid in some way. Or maybe it's just that none of them are valid at all. Read the Illuminatus! Trilogy, or if you don't want to put up with 900 pages of stupid antics, read Cosmic Trigger I.
This. Learn a skill. Pick one that nearly nobody does so that it looks more impressive. I can juggle 4 balls. It's not hard to do, but it makes me better at juggling than 99% of the population.
I know very well that i'm an idiot and made it clear that i'm not smart so i don't know why you think this cartoon is relevant. Unless you also happen to be a dumbass like me and as a result lack reading comprehension. I feel better knowing that there is at least one person here that's dumber than me. Thank you anon.
