    I think the weirdest thing for me about this video was being a 'gifted' person, but not at all relating to the category in this video because I'm academically intelligent, but socially, I'm incredibly stupid. (Btw people in the comments, please don't come after me for this. I know people think that if you share your intelligence that you're boasting or compensating, but I swear I'm not. Usually people seem to think this when they see someone talk about how smart they are a lot, but when this is the only thing that you've ever read from me, you wouldn't know that I don't actually talk about this very much, it's just relevant to the video. Also I may be wrong about everything within these parenthesis, because as I said, I'm a social dumbfuck so idk)

      at least you made it clear what you were saying :). also, I think maybe you can get away with saying "academically intelligent" more than saying "intelligent" because it implies that you're not intelligent in some other areas, and that you know it. all in all 10/10 excellent comment, demonstrated solid grasp of empathy

    Big oof when you said “gorillas are one of the only non-human animals to use tools. Man, so many animals use tools. Bonobos and orangutans are two. Crows can make and use tools as well. Tool use is a VERY poor indicator of intelligence. It generally means they have some but possibly not a lot of intellectuace

  • Dromedda

    having all ur variable names and methods lowecase is bad practice and i would recommend adopting camelCase Or PascalCase for easy readabillity. Also What language is it supposed to be? C++? either way you wouldn't write "return(0);" and instead it is just "return 0;" But hey what do i know, im just some guy studying Software Engineering... i mean a nerd on the internet who spends my entire waking time writing minecraft mods that no one downloads... :(

    Once this kid in middle school who called me the r word and bullied me because everyone though I was inept when in reality I just got zero sleep which is bad especially considering I have bipolar and I was failing school because of how depressed I was. One day I asked him to quiz me to prove I wasn’t incompetent, he quizzed me on social studies he gave me about ten questions I got about 8 or nine or so right which was cool considering I put zero effort into the subject, on the last question he cut me off deliberately, claiming that because I put the answers into my own words instead of memorizing the definition from the reading I was wrong, despite me being able to answer the majority of the questions correctly without even studying the material

    Here's my hot-take: Intelligence is a talent. Talents are freebies we're all born with to some degree - People who happen to have more of it have done _jack shit_ to earn it. Talent does not deserve praise or respect. There's not a lot of things I find more off-putting than someone clearly coasting on talent alone. You can recognize them by their smug aura of unearned superiority and their showboating. I used to be like that myself, that's how I know. We should admire hard work, skill and dedication way more than we do.
