 I see your point OP. Been on my mind for a while now. It's not the fact that intelligence is a turn off, it's that 'Oh I'm intelligent so I'm kinda superior to others' that's fucked up. Although it might be true, for me, whenever I get those kinds of thoughts in my head, life starts being fun, pickup is not as fun, just a ''prove I'm better than xyz, or prove that I'm good''.

So yeaaaah. Better to just have fun

logical intelligence can be leveraged to achieve competence in emotional intelligence.

emotional intelligence can NOT be leveraged into logical intelligence.

use this to your advantage.

Pseudo intellectualism is mouth diarrhea and smells awful.

 I think you're right dude.

A lot of guys I know rely way too heavily on their intellect to the point where they think they know everything.

The old school thinking that a guy doesn't need to be emotional is plain retarded to me.

Of course be strong so you don't end up coming across as a weak pussy, but expressing how we feel is probably the fastest way to women's heart (and bed)

This is my opinion at least

Intelligence is the best possible attribute you can have.

I'd even argue that being percieved as "good-looking" largely comes down to intelligence. I.e. the intelligence to eat well, be well groomed, dress well and go the gym, shave your head if you are bald, cut the carbs if you are fat, the list goes on....

 Pickup got easier when I stopped pretending that dumb hot girls are cool.

Smart is sexy :)

Tyler fucking nailed it.

I've been in bed with girls in the after glow staying up talking for hours exciting them.

I get that talking about complex, interesting subjects in a nightclub is a recipe for disaster when the girls just want to be bent over and.or dance, lulz. 

But I'm still confused about MIND, not intelligence. Intelligence defined as the ability to "be smart" and process information or understand things. Duhhhh... that's important. :)

But I mean, "Knowledge", about most things can be limiting to your ability to perform? Crippling even?! 

AMIRITE?!?!?! I just read Dan Millman's book WOTPW, and it kinds of fucked me over.. not sure in a good or bad way, but I never feel like thinking or using "false reality" knowledge again because it just distracts from your experience.

 I think a lot of people confuse intelligence with knowledge.Even though intelligent people are often knowledgeable.Just because you read a bunch of books and remember what you read its not the same thing.

 I FUCKED UP. I meant knowledge/thinking, NOT basic intelligence like the ability to process information or basic skills. I was half-asleep when I wrote this. 

Street smarts vs book smarts.

So knowledge is only helpful when used as a guide, a tool for navigating reality, and is fucking useless until applied 100%.
