Why are intelligent people depressed? Why do genius-level intellects suffer from mental health issues?
>>
less smart people are less aware, thus making their life more bearable
>>
You're not a genius. You're just weak.
>>
>>721546320
Because they know too much and are incapable of dealing with it. Therefore they aren't 'smart'. They just know a lot.
>>
just because you are depressed that doesn't mean you are smart...

some intelligent people are depressed, some are not.
>>
Actually High IQ is negatively correlated with mental health issues.
>>
I know that feel man.
When I went to school everybody thought I'd become a genius. I took one of those IQ tests and it told me I had the same IQ as Albert Einstein himself had at that age.

But I wasn't happy so I quit school and got a fun job as a bartender.
>>
>>721546742
Hows the job going for you?
>>
>>721546320
they aren't dreaming or pursuing higher purposes to which they can apply their skillset and continuesly develope with the increasing complexity of problemsolving

As a doctor, I encourage you to do more research. It isn't true.
>>
>>721547074
Knowledge is power!
>>
>>721546452
Exactly
>>721546320
I used to think i was smart too, thought i was depressed because of it. Then i met an actual genius. My best friend now, he thinks at another level. Absolute whiz, had a "business" at 13 selling shit online. Was abused and has suffered more heartbreak than i have seen in anyone, and he just can't feel depressed. Doesn't matter how life gets him down, no matter what he has never turned to self loathing and pity. Remarkable mind and i doubt he'd be able to perform so well at life without it. Moral of the story is, you're not some special cookie that can see life in a unique, truthful way. Most people can see it like that. that's life. Most people are also not depressed fucks that loathe in themselves.
>>
>>721546320
Because even with their intelligence they do nothing with it and are terrible socially compared to normies who are more happy
>>
>>721546320
When your smart it's very easy to twits the world to fit your thoughts.

So when you get depressed it's very easy to stay depressed.
>>
>>721547301
Never claimed to be. I don't know why people are projecting. I'm a first year resident doctor in Chicago, and I still wouldn't claim to be a genius.
>>
>>721546934
might be onto something there. Being clever allows you to solve many problems superficially without much effort, so you never feel the need of actually dreaming or projecting yourself in the future.
>>
>>721546320
Some of the dumbest people I know are the happiest.

Some "smart people" , like me, aren't necessarily depressed, more like, ehhh, bored with shit.

I'm not ducking Einstein, but I do have a vast , widespread knowledge of real world experiences. There is very little I have not done.

We need our egos stroked constantly. It's not good enough to "know" we are smarter and better, we need to hear it.
>>
>>721547452
Thats the only answer so far, that rings true.
>>
>>721547269
Haha, as a doctor ... what specialism? As a neuroscientist, I encourage you to do more research. It is true. IQ is protective against mental illness.
>>
>>721546320
because they understand
>>
>>721546320
Because psychological imbalances.

Kids who do well in school are praised and considered special. These rewards encourage them to keep on developing their intellect, so that they eventually overspecialise. They neglect everything else life has to offer, including things that could actually make them happy and fulfilled (e.g. sensory stimulation, emotional development, social and sexual contact.)

tl;dr - there's more to life that academic achievement. Read Jung.

because we have almost no friends on our level.
having to help others who cant think for themselves or are always fucking everything up is like having a pet you need to clean up after.
>>
>>721547866
This is true. But it doesn't explain why many genius' we read about in textbooks, had some form of addiction. Or were shutins, or generally were depressive people.
>>
>>721547787 Suggest you google the word 'specialism' and then look on pubmed for the actual science relating IQ to various mental disorders. The most at risk group are those with low IQs. I'm sure you're good at internal medicine though.
>>
They aren't always like that, and it's because of social isolation. They have trouble relating to others, and their demons are more convincing.
>>
>>721546320
Smarter you are. The less friends you have. It's because smart people want friends who better them, or can teach them shit.

It takes me a long time to put up with idiots. I'm smart in the fashion where I have boat loads of common sense and understand physical objects very easily. Growing up my parents would have me fix the VCR when I was like 10. But fuckkk ask me to sit down and read a book or do boring ass math. Fuck that!

Thus the internet became my home... Smart people can collect and share ideas without all the extra shit.

Everyone suffers from mental health issues, people took a small observation of geniuses being so smart they they tend to walk the thin line of insanity so what happens is retard tumblr users see that sort of observation and interpret depression as being inherently a genius trait well guess what, you are dumb.

It was a broad generalization. People incapable of understanding nuance and how diverse personalities are, are probably not intelligent.

I am in no way the smartest guy but in a place I live in having 125 IQ is well above average and I can't find many people too connect with so I spend most of my time alone doing stuff I wish some girl would watch me do or enjoy as much as I do. Its not even that I'm ugly I'm about 85% good looking its just that I can't find a girl that is worth of my time or even worst preety enough for me I feel like a totally different breed.

They see the invetible failure in humans.

They cant cope because new discoveries are often found by less intelligent people who dont know any better.

In other words they are taught absolutes and that nothing can change those absolutes.

My son is like this. Super intelligent but stuck in the absolutes.

He's getting better because I am teaching him that nothing matters in the end so go take some chances.

Now he is starting to race locally and planning trips to discover new things.

>>721547989
Because guys like this are intelligent in the IQ sense, in the book-smart sense, but their emotional intelligence is low.

I think a lot of high IQ, high intelligence people think highly of themselves and they see themselves as the "other". They "can't" make friends because you're not "on their level".

In reality, a lot of these people are the ones who are causing the problem. They have very little emotional intelligence which is what helps to create social interaction and form friendships and relationships.

So basically they're super smart but too stupid to understand other people. Which makes them pretentious over time.
>>
>>721550028
Only wanting relationships as a means of getting things from people is a social disorder.

>>721550053

I think you took "get something out of" too literally. People without mental disorders only have friends because they want something too. "companionship" maybe?

Yeah. Where I live there are no career paths. It was either work in hospitality, or a hospital. The only way I could escape was by going to a private CDL school and becoming a truck driver.. It seems like a waste of smarts. But it pays good, and when I'm off I get to invent and tinker with things on my own time, with plenty of cash on hand to do so. And being a truck driver requires very little socializing with dumb people. Most folks just want to do their jobs and go home. Thats fine with me!

And plus. You can use the job as a reason towards your family why you aren't with anyone. Lol
>>
OP, if you ask stupid questions, you'll tend to get stupid answers (as exemplified ITT).

There is no proven correlation between intelligence and depression. There is plenty of speculation and studies on the subject, but it seems the results of the studies are mostly inconclusive. A Google search will tell you as much.

Now, there does seem to be an increased prevalence of mental illness among creative people; however, this seems to apply more to the humanities than the sciences.
>>
>>721550297
He/you were clearly referring to something other than companionship. Wanting friends because you want companionship is different than using them for personal gain.

That's utter nonsense, having friends just to use them for your own personal gain is a sign of multiple possible social disorders.

I have lots of friends who think of me as the funny guy because thats the way I want them to think of me. Had lots of meaningless relationship never being myself.

Really though, that's all life is; everyone does it. People have friends because they get things from that friendship. Happiness, company, etc. Everyone picks friends based on that. If you're friends with people solely to manipulate for gain with only you benefiting then I would say that's a social disorder.
>>
>>721546320
First, that's not entirely true. The brain is a muscle, and just like a muscle grows the more you use it. There are perfectly healthy geniuses out there.

That being said, I assume you are discussing the link between bipolar (bpd) and their tendency to make it into various schools of thought and research. There are lots of answers as to the why, but the most compelling I've found so far has to do with a neurotransmitter called norepinephrine. This neurotransmitter is found in higher doses with individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar. It regulates the focused, alert feeling associated with the "fight or flight " response, and as such forces an individual to focus and think hard. Those suffering from the before mentioned diseases almost always have a constant flow of this going through their system, forcing them to think and develop their brain.
Just like anything, take this with a grain of salt, because this is just a hypothesis. Also, do some of your own research, you fuck.

Diagnosed genius intelligence reporting in, more or less just to say that ya'll people are mostly wrong, probably because of low int.
No, I'm serious.
It isn't simply that ignorance is bliss, because ignorance is also fucking painful at times, only to the ignorant person their "misfortunes" seem to come flying outta nowhere. They obviously suffer the consequences, aware or not. Look at obese people (they are usually fucking stupid[also because health and intelligence go hand-in-hand]), they just blame their thyroid or some stupid shit like that.
The true reasons intelligence is associated with depression is because we don't fit in. People all around are far too small-minded and preoccupied with petty bullshit that geniuses look at like children playing in a sandbox. And if you don't fit in, that is a big challenge as a human being. We depend on eachother entirely, and when one cannot be understood or related with, life gets needlessly difficult even though you are the most competent individual to deal with the problems.
A sufficiently intelligent individual certainly also recognises the meaninglessness of life, but it is dealt with differently from case to case.

Pay you star between 30 and 35k a year.

You cant use regular GPS. and some companys want you to use their paper route maps. A truck GPS with truck routes is very expensive. They do make them. But you cannot use google maps to guide you to somewhere otherwise you might come to an over pass you cannot fit under.

Also if you drive locally you get a pretty decent work hours. Like 8 or 9. But it may require you to unload your truck yourself too.. And I hate that shit.

But anon. Its 12 hours to drive.. That leaves you 12 hours to eat and sleep. Considering i sleep for 10. Leaves me two hours to eat. And I often make meals before I leave so I can have something healthy while on the road. You get two hours to do what ever. I normally spend it using the bathroom more often. And then you get 3 days off... So youre only working 48 hours max a week most of the time. Also if you stay with the job in 3 to 5 years. You can get paid 45 to 55k a year.

You are depressed because you haven't chosen a lifestyle and instead resign yourself to staying inside being bored jerking off. Me personally I decided I wanted to be a drug addict and I pursue that goal viciously. I also have friends that enjoy the same activity.

You faggots think you're intellectually superior to me?
I'll have you know that by the age of 11 I read all of Marcel's work, War & Peace, Quixote, every book by Dickens, the complete works of Plato, Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Les Misérables and I even managed to memorize the first 10 chapters of Joyce's Ulysses using the method of loci.
Not only was I incredibly well-versed in literature, but I also taught myself assembly and Lisp. Shortly after I managed to write my own C compiler which was later shipped with the greatest operating system of all time, TempleOS.
Now I hold a Master of Science degree from M.I.T. and am currently doing research for my PhD.

Not really. It just seems that way because we're more interconnected than ever before. The internet lets you hear about bad news fast. If even so much as one kid gets hit by a car in a small town somewhere, the whole planet knows about it within a day.

A little over a hundred years ago entire towns could be slaughtered in a single night and nobody would know. Combine this with the fact that bad news spreads like wildfire and good news is met with a resounding 'meh' and you've got an explanation for why it feels like the world is collapsing.

Clearly because there are too many people who try really hard to be their idea of smart and are stupid for it. They clash against what an intelligent person would consider to be the most sound logic available.

To be really honest you can be depressed for a number of reasons, so I wouldn't correlate intelligence with depression, but rather feelings of isolation and general misunderstanding/miscommunication. Probably.
