How Smart People Talk About Themselves

Good observations.  I will add ...

Brilliant people do a couple of things that average people rarely if ever do.  1) They can lock onto an idea with absolutely unshakeable force.  That hyperfocus is actually a change of brain state, sometimes called 'zone' or 'flow' in which a better quality and quantity of output is possible.  2) They can teleport from A to Q while everyone else is still looking for B.  So if you're listening to someone and they do either of those, chances are, they're smart.  And the smarter they are, the more they do that stuff, and the less average people understand them.  Anyone can have an occasional zone or leap of intuition.  A genius does it routinely.
