You remind me of my brother. He would recommend me a movie in conversation that he likes but via online, not in person. I do the whole trying to connect with him and expand on his comment. You know, actually give a **** and make an effort to converse. So I ask him what’s it about? He tells me not to be lazy and go google the synopsis. The f**kin arrogance after being the one to initiate the subject in the first place.
Is your brother INTJ? High IQ?
Speaking as one I can tell you it's incredibly frustrating when you give people advice then have to handhold them through a process which feels, well, basic as fuck to us. Like common sense. We tell you X, you go Google X...job done. Efficient. Nothing roots friendships out in my life quicker than people who need handholding and can't take any initiative. Especially ones who criticise me for not holding their hand. Now I don't mind some handholding if they have taken the time to do their own research and come back to me with smart questions, but that's not this.
When Nick tells me something here and I am unclear on it, the FIRST THING I DO is run *"X" "nrgiseternal" site:nrgiseternal.com* through Google to expand on his knowledge of X rather than ask Nick, who is a busy man, to have to handhold me. Then I run "X" through a multitude of other sites as well as Google Images to get a general, wider feel of the subject. That way I have some, albeit maybe incorrect, notions of what X is about, so we don't waste time.
Passive aggressive statements like this don't help either: "This doesn’t afford me the luxury to research every thing the great NRG has posted."
You obviously don’t understand context so let me clarify.
In a social setting, when two people are engaged and someone is sharing something of personal value to them in the confines of the conversation, essentially they are enabling a temporary social conversational contract.
This contract is enacted via communication. This contract often entails things like etiquette, social nuances, mutual respect, understanding, use of common terminology and language etc etc etc.
Only has it become recent that human beings have become so disconnected and disillusioned with human interaction whilst simultaneously being initiated into the practices of singularity that this has fallen by the way side.
Bee-hive mentality purely plugged into the matrix which reduces people to a borg-like mental function is being played out all over the world.
I’m sure many of us see it at play even in “in real life” conversations. Got to keep that google handy! Art of story telling which was utilised by many civilisations before the “plugging in” was the primary means for passing on knowledge.
This is evident in mid-conversation when someone shares something with you but instead of keeping the “flow” or “energy” of the conversation, the rhythm is suspended pending confirmation from a super data base.
Bees to the hive indeed. Rather mechanical and robotic. But then again, so was the borg if anyone get that reference.
Is he high IQ? He’s conceptually and logically smart but has the emotional intelligence of a peanut at times. This has caused him great suffering, socially and personally. What causes one to be emotionally intelligent? Conversation and practicing the art of interacting with human beings with effort, patience, understanding and suspension of arrogance/ego!
You know who else are rather high IQ but lack social nuance and emotional intelligence? The imperial east. Complete left brain tote learners. Once again, bee analogy is perfect here.
Like I said in my previous post regarding left brain hemisphere dominance, which as we all probably know, is the opposite hemisphere for emotional and intuitive intelligence.
If this is where things are progressing, all these threads mean nothing. The decline is in full swing and the fact I have to explain this to you tells me so.
No, I agree passive aggressive statements like that don’t help. I’m aware and can admit that. I’m fallible. I also have a tendency to take the bait for a volatile hook.
Tremendous patience is required in these parts of the internet. TREMENDOUS!
Anything else you want to add whilst the focus is on me?
