Callum Vlex Posted over 2 years ago How do smart people "find their level" in conversation? I think that I (like almst everyone else here) don't intend to seek out intelligence in people, hoever it may present itself. What I do seek out is engaging conversation, and I think most intelligent people do, they'll look further into a topic to try and find out more interesting scenarios or conclusions. Because intelligent people want their conversations to be interesting for them they generally make the conversation more interesting for the other person. If you want something (and have a kind heart) you will give it. so simply put, "like attracts like" but due to the higher rate of interesting conversations to be had with more intelligent people they will generally coverge into a group, but due to the fact that it is just a higher rate, you will obviously find individual that don't match this generalisation. But what would I know I'm Just a kid.
