commenting on everything, never listening, never changing their opinion, arguing every little thing that comes out of your mouth... the list goes on and on

[–]Jamlpr 257 points258 points  (1 child)

So, Reddit? (Myself included, obviously)

[–]StrangeCharmVote 48 points49 points  (2 children)

I've noticed the pattern of such people never actually answering questions you propose, and instead just keep saying whatever their point is supposed to be over and over again, like repetition alone is supposed to be convincing.

Basically, they aren't engaging in discussion, they are just waiting for their turn to speak.

[–]GoodRiddancePluto 4803 points4804 points 2 (170 children)

Never saying ‘I don’t know’. I have not met the person that knows all yet.

[–]Wit-wat-4 633 points634 points  (14 children)

This was gonna be mine, too, or close to it. Even the MOST arrogant intelligent people I’ve known could at least show some interest in learning, or at most might dismiss it as “I don’t know but doesn’t matter does it”.

People who NEVER not know?

Might not be complete idiots, but I’ve never met a smart one like that.

[–]RayAnselmo 668 points669 points  (92 children)

I'll disagree, as I know several intelligent people who have trouble admitting they don't know something. But it is a sign of low self-esteem and insecurity.

[–]PTSDaway 221 points222 points  (15 children)

Knowledgable and intelligent are similar, but not the same.

[–]fafalone 180 points181 points  (28 children)

"I can think of exceptions, therefore this correlation doesn't exist." is a sign of low intelligence.

Two things can be correlated without absolutely every single instance perfectly matching the trend.

[–]somethingtrulyunique 60 points61 points  (11 children)

My Grandma smoked and she lived to be 101!

[–]subarashi-sam 15 points16 points  (10 children)

What did she smoke?

[–]somethingtrulyunique 35 points36 points  (5 children)

She didn’t, really. My grandpa did, though and he died from emphysema.

It was just a made-up example of the “exceptions mean the rule doesn’t exist”.

[–]alc4pwned 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Except OP asked for "sure signs" of low intelligence, not "things usually associated with low intelligence".

[–]ichliebekohlmeisen 61 points62 points  (6 children)

Correlation does not imply causality.

[–]StillKpaidy 59 points60 points  (0 children)

But it does waggle its eyebrows suggestively.

[–]Throw13579 10 points11 points  (0 children)

But a lack of correlation implies no causation.

[–]Bitcoin_batrabbit 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Saying that does not imply you are smart

"I am a trained nutritionist and let me tell you why you should spend $400 monthly on my products"

[–]Wind_Yer_Neck_In 117 points118 points  (2 children)

'Oh nutritionist, is that like a dietician?'

Yes! Exactly the same. Except without the medical training, oversight and licencing!

[–]gristmill 46 points47 points  (0 children)

The shampoo MLM Monat just started a training program they're calling "PHD" training and now these chicks selling shampoo on Facebook are running around telling everyone they got their PhD.

/sigh. Idiocracy was a documentary.

[–]NowImNothing19 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Just watched LuLaRich. I'm not the sharpest bulb in the drawer but it's hard to imagine so many people falling for this. If you have to bring people in to make money that should tell you something is not right.

[–]zalfenior 8 points9 points  (0 children)

You'd be surprised. These organizations go for the ignorant and naive, or the vulnerable and the desperate. If it sounds an awful lot like a cult to you, well you are correct.

Women in religious groups like the Mormons (LDS) are especially targeted because their religion heavily discourages them from formal work. Also, CutCo and Primerica tend to target teenagers trying to nail their first job.

You can find out more on r/antiMLM if you want

[–]FunnyQueer 181 points182 points  (7 children)

I automatically think less of someone if they are involved in a pyramid scheme like that.

[–]HistoricalMeat 36 points37 points  (2 children)

I disagree. I think like other cults MLMs prey on emotionally vulnerable people. They’re often totally reasonable outside that one area, but have become indoctrinated to the point of brainwashing.

I’ll admit some are dumb, but I think a lot of people were either just desperate or in a low point in life.

[–]DonDraperItsToasted 6 points7 points  (0 children)

“Choose the job YOU WANT! Work YOUR OWN hours! That’s what I do… while I work 3 other jobs to support myself..”

[–]thatsnotmybutter 1744 points1745 points  (29 children)

An inability to admit when you're wrong. Or at the very least an inability to try to understand another person's point of view. Facts don't change just because you refuse to accept them.

[–]assH0LIER_than_thou 215 points216 points  (6 children)

Yeah worst is when they realize they were very wrong and very vocal about it and then switch to personal attacks.

[–]mjh49783 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Yup. Once they do that, it's game over. What their ego won't admit, their seething will.

[–]diox8tony 57 points58 points  (0 children)

I don't know.....everyone need to say those words more.

The world is too complex for anything to be certain. Even experts who gather in teams of 20, get tons of money,,,,even their results are effectively "we think" levels of certainty.

[–]ilikeeatingbrains 114 points115 points 232 (4 children)

We had a new machine in that day at the warehouse. I had to stay late to catch up, and when I came down from the office, she was just sitting there, resplendent. The forks had yet to be dulled from use and I stared at them, imagining what it would feel like to be a wood pallet, thrust into deliciously and carried wherever the forks saw fit to place me down. Everyone had gone home, and I felt myself shudder, thinking of the myriad number of hands at the controls.

Someone had left the keys in the ignition port. I went to take them out but...hesitated. Instead, with my face growing hot, I decided to hell with it and turned on the machine that already had me turned on. It thrummed to life and I started to caress the casing around the controls. The machine remained impassive, unwavering, making my loins weak. I had to press my pubic mound against the lift control and the forks rose with my turgid member.

not changing your opinion even when the other person shows factual evidence of you being wrong and still just saying your right with nothing to back that up

Friend does this all the time. She refuses to admit raisins were previously grapes.

Visible confusion she is so stupid my brain can't comprehend it

[–]im_really_that_dumb 168 points169 points  (18 children)

At this point she knows it’s correct but has refused too long so she can’t change her answer. She’s not brightest.

I saw "fresh prunes" recently in the fruit section of the grocery store.

Yes, they were plums. They were not dried.

[–]py_a_thon 41 points42 points  (6 children)

You should have told them that prunes are space grapes. We harvest them from asteroids and comets. They are a very healthy and magical food.

[–]Sabitking 498 points499 points  (17 children)

“You re right, thanks” would change the world

[–]CovetousLemon 58 points59 points  (4 children)

It kinda goes beyond intelligence. Being proven wrong causes what's called "Cognitive dissonance" which triggers the same parts of the brain that trigger when pain is felt. It's more of a sign of virtue and of being capable of rationalizing your own mind than pure intelligence. Some intelligent people don't own that virtue and lack the emotional prowess to respond in a logical way to their own mistakes

[–]Mirraco323 7 points8 points  (1 child)

As annoying as this situation is, I think it’s more of an indicator of narcissism than a lack of intelligence.

[–]pomonamike 129 points130 points  (5 children)

I had a coworker spouting off something stupid one day about Trump having already balanced the budget and actually eliminating the national debt. When I very politely pointed out that the national debt still exists and the current number was (read off the official ticker), she said very dismissively, “look there is nothing you can ever say to change my mind.” She said those words like that’s a good thing.

Last thing I ever said to her was, “if you give me evidence, you can change my mind about most things.”

[–]roboticon 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Last thing I ever said to her was, “if you give me evidence, you can change my mind about most things.”

Went to college with a large number of engineers. IQs came up a lot. Learned real quick that their bragging about intelligence dissapeared after the first few report cards.

My mom refuses to tell my my IQ test results. They’re probably pretty low not gonna lie.

[–]tech_puppet 345 points346 points  (11 children)

Lack of self awareness, being unable to put your head down when doing wrong, incapable of saying I'm sorry, among others.

[–]DreamMaster8 66 points67 points  (1 child)

Lack of self awareness is a big one. There's a direct correlation with high intelligence and social anxiety/ narcissism/ depression / indecision and lack of confidence.

Lack of imagination and empathy. No interest in ongoing learning or reading. Inability to admit when they are wrong or listen to someone else’s point of view. Not able to “think outside the box” / problem solving skills.

[–]DiggingCheese73 191 points192 points  (7 children)

When someone chastises you for speaking on a topic you're knowledgeable about. It's typically because they feel insecure.

They repeat shit over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again.

[–]h4terade 62 points63 points  (4 children)

Repeating mistakes to be specific. I've met a few of these people throughout my life, always seeming to run into the same problems over and over again, problems that are 100% avoidable but they just seem to keep walking right into them.

[–]Morphized 11 points12 points  (0 children)

That could just mean they're too lazy to fix the problem and consider making the mistake and alleviating it over and over to be an acceptable sacrifice.

Yo you could be right or that person is suffering from a mental illness that you don't know about. Today I learned about rumination to which I fit the bill in the description used to describe ruminating.

If I catch someone repeating something, I wouldn't assume they have low intelligence.

edit: It really fucking sucks seeing posts in this thread that talk about signs of low intelligence when it's likely that individual is probably suffering an unchecked mental illness. You're asking, "go get help then" when it is in fact, never that easy nor cheap. Also toss in the stigma STILL attached to seeking therapy and yeah, you got A LOT of people living day to day with some form of mental illness that just compounds overtime. Real depressing when the fake 'wokeness' is on display but fall short when it comes to recognizing and defending mental illness.

edit2: I appreciate everyone one of you who took the time to respond to share their similar struggles and experience. By opening dialogue you and I are sharing our experiences and knowledge on the matter. I honestly googled the feeling I had in me that I could had never successfully described until coming upon it. It was that curiosity where I began reading more about my mental health; it is as if a light clicked in my head ya know? Like you spent this much time feeling lost in the middle of the ocean and now you can see a lighthouse. The lighthouse is marvelously far away, But I can see it now. Fuck you I'm not crying lol

[–]Aggressive_Library97 63 points64 points  (5 children)

This right here. As someone with a mental illness who experiences mania and rapid speech, it doesn't mean I'm not smart. It means my brain has been traumatized and is working it out.

[–]AcrossTheMilkySeas 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Thank you for saying this. I have memory problems. I used to be whipcrack quick at doing things and recalling information, now i'm not. When I remember something, I am 100% reliable. Now it's 50/50, and spotty all over. But forgetting something doesn't mean I can't understand a concept anymore, it just means my brain hasn't recorded the information or the pathways can't join for me to recall it from my memory bank.

It is so sad for people to think memory = intelligence. Also sometimes this is the result even with help. Sometimes it's just a case of managing your life the way it is, instead of trying to get back something that is lost forever.

I worked for 2 self proclaimed geniuses. They didn’t listen to anyone 🙄

[–]proper_headspace 88 points89 points  (6 children)

Neither being a self proclaimed genius nor the inability/unwillingness to listen makes someone unintelligent. It may be that they’re very intelligent and an ass, or any number of other possible options.

[–]Kytescall 11 points12 points  (1 child)

There are probably much fewer geniuses who openly declare themselves as such than idiots who call themselves genius.

[–]MrSpindles 64 points65 points  (0 children)

This. The smartest people I know don't have to tell anyone they are smart, people are aware of this from the things that they say and do. The people I know who believe they are smart are thicker than treacle.

Some people have a bit of a big fish in a small pond thing going on, where their social group and work acquaintances lack intelligence and they've always felt like the smart one. In my experience the self belief then leads to them making fools of themselves outside of that group.

exactly what i came here to comment. i have some very intelligent friends with adhd who can talk their ass off, & their stories are super interesting too

[–]Intense_City 102 points103 points  (2 children)

Wild/outraged customer. I realize it is an atypical sign or low intelligence, but the few times I have witnessed an adult throw a tantrum in a place of business, it is because they are incapable of understanding the company policy which renders them unable to make the return, exchange their item, receive an accommodation…etc. It is a terrible combination of low intelligence and entitlement.

[–]TheSlickWilly 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Sometimes it's definitely low intelligence and entitlement but other times I believe it is pent up frustration directed at the wrong people. Kind of the straw that breaks the camel's back in a way. Some people never really learn how to deal with stress or have been beaten down a lot and are straight up tired.

The inability to laugh at yourself

[–]jellybeanfishboop 50 points51 points  (15 children)

My ex was so intensely afraid of people finding them stupid that they literally couldn’t laugh at themselves ever. Even about things that happened years prior. Made things very uncomfortable sometimes and I was made out to be a terrible person if I giggled at a little, silly mistake they made. I generally thought they were a smart person but since the breakup I’ve questioned their intelligence and how much of it was just a need to feel superior to other people.

[–]hotsoupcoldsoup 28 points29 points  (7 children)

It really depends. If I say, start teasing my partner about something deeply hurtful and personal in a public setting, I wouldn't expect them to "laugh at themselves". I would be the asshole for publicly humiliating someone I care for, not them because they can't laugh about something possibly traumatic.

[–]DenzelEd12 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Yeah that’s straight up abusing someone emotionally

[–]lehmx 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I don't really beleive intelligence is a sliding scale. People are usually good at some things and bad at others. I'm good at words but pretty shonky at maths.

I have an uncle that's very gifted with computer programming, brags about his kids doing well in STEM subjects but is also anti-vax, anti-mask, etc.

Um…no…and if you really believe that, then it’s too late for your brain!

Um... No. These masks were originally developed for use by surgeons. They are very interested in preserving their brains.

Yes, I work in a veterinary clinic. Masks are mandatory as soon as we step inside theatre and have been long before the pandemic kicked in. They stop pathogens from getting OUT, not getting in and help to keep the theatre sterile. It makes me laugh when people who know what I do for a living say things like “I’m not wearing one! They stop oxygen from getting to my brain!”. Do they really think we’d be able to perform delicate surgery on animals for hours on end if oxygen intake was an issue?
