How do smart people "find their level" in conversation?
I've noticed that ppl such as myself. Are very quiet. Not because we don't have a lot to say. But as you said ppl such as myself can't express our self in this era. I've tried very hard to converse with many ppl and most I can tell within in the first 10 secs have no idea what I'm talking about. Not to be stereotypical. But I live in Atlanta and because the population is heavily black the only thing I can relate myself to them is Obama. That is not every black person. But I can for the most part almost always tell by the look in their eye that I would either have an engaging conversation or a slow simple one. I don't think the average person....doesn't have to be american. The average person does not comprehend the technology that is coming right now. And when I try to engage in a conversation about bionanotechnology or robotics or quantum mechanics. I find myself wanting to talk to anyone about it. Even if they don't know about it. My mind is a 24/7 scrolling encyclopedia. My release is posting tech vids of world changing technology on youtube so that I can at least feel like I'm sharing. But for the most part is agonizing not being able to express my intelligence and dumbing it down so that ppl can pace with me. Ppl really don't get me. I can disect a person's joke and see it different way than they intended. For example : They could have made a statement which could be look from an intelligent person as a technical joke. It happen today in class. Everyone looked at me funny. I thought it was hilarious. I've tried in the past to break them down to show them how it's funny. And they'll either look at me like "how was that funny" or either " they just don't get it" or "it would take so long to explain it that its not even funny to me anymore. I hate not being able to express myself and my views and or to share views with others.

I was one of those gifted kids. From long ago. Maybe not in your screening. But I believe I was the first generation of autistic kids. I believe my autism differs from the ones of today. It makes me very empathetic to anyone. Most ppl say you can't be empathetic if you yourself know it but I deny that claim. When you notice as a kid you react to things as a kid and your emotions are different than most kids. Anyway, not trying to throw the topic off. But maybe because of my particular autism as I would call it. I analyze and see things really really differently. My mom took me to get screen because of my gifts and because I was very empathetic>>>>> which I didn't notice until I was like 13. When ppl are sad or angry I'm unable to show real sad emotion of any kind. I will in fact laugh for no apparent reason. Anyway....I've derailed this topic.

How do smart people "find their level" in conversation?
I'm probably both smart and intelligent. Because I rarely stumble but I absorb massive amounts of information that I'm sometimes not very familiar with. But I keep reading and associating with ppl that do. And I absorb their knowledge and incorporate it into mine. And analyze their theories with mine and the ones that I previously absorbed and come with a conclusion of a standpoint in knowledge. But also I stumble over my words sometimes when I've absorbed to much information in a given day and my mind is blank. And maybe 5 min after I talk with that person or we begin a totally different subject it comes to my mind. I'm smart, intelligent, and attentive, astute. I took a IQ test recently and it was inclusive. I didn't fail but didn't pass. Doctor said I had a average IQ but he wasn't really sure and he said so. He just gave me a estimate. But see I passed all the complex tests but didn't do so well on the simpler ones. And that probably is think lot. Sometimes over think. People tell me that a lot. All the complex shapes, pattern and memorization skills that they tested me on I aced. It was actually crazy. Cause I didn't really memorize them. He asked me for a word that was the opposite of the word he spoke and it had to be on the screen. I only looked at the screen for 2 secs. And I just figured out a system of decisive similar antonyms that would make sense. But what do I know. Maybe my IQ is 92. Anyway, later.

If you could teach the world 1 valuable thing you learned, what would it be and why?
Mine would be don't be so dependent on the words of others. Not saying the media is all bad or all scientists are wrong. But it seems that ppl are becoming lazy and depedent on others to find out the knowledge for them or that knowledge magically is transformed into a book and that the thought that created that book is just as magically as the creation of the pages and words that made the book possible. Never before has there been such a treasure trove of open source information available not only to a set number of ppl but to the whole world and ppl are not taking advantage of it but rather waiting for the news to be translated to them. They are not realizing and I find these horrendously shameful that ppl don't seem to understand how much information they put out amongst text , vids, post, comments and what have you.....along with the tech updates that are changing the world to rapidly for the news to report and even they were make a channel fixating on the mass info given within the past 4 years it would take a millenia or long to sift through 1% of said data. My advice is don't wait for the world to come to you but you go to the world. This planet was not civilized by sitting on our thumbs waiting for science to give us a hint. We had to look for them ourselves and find solutions to certain problems. But the solutions of yesterday's man has today's man stupid and tommorow's man will prolly be extinct. The human race must evolve or face to digress into primordial animalistic man with socialized internet linguistics in a post modern world.

How do smart people "find their level" in conversation?
There are not enough intelligent ppl my age. I'm 27 and I find myself among most of my friends having to dumb down my conversation. It is very hard to transition my intelligent output. I can transition with street conversational skills and how I would talk in a industry or business setting quite well. But I'm talking about pure sheerness of my peers actually being able to understand me. I find myself accidentally but unknowingly cracking technical jokes in pairs of 15 while mixing them with internet humor in a totally present or futuristic tense and not realizing that ppl don't understand me. Because I'm so interested in sharing my intelligence with others that I do recognize after the first 10 minutes that I lost them in the first 40 secs. Because they are not responding and given a blank look as to what I'm even talking about. I'm a african american male and I find quite a bit resentment among my peers sometimes and or other ppl. I find it interesting that I did not use to be like this or maybe I always was but did not apply myself for whatever reason. I have not finished college but I attend Le Cordon Bleu now. It may be my own cognitive abilities coming into play but maybe its the way I learn. I find myself adapting and learning at a staggering rate especially when I'm trying to learn and then my brain seems to grab more on maybe days later after I have viewed a particular subject. It will then I guess absorb knowledge and then I don't know I start to form theories around the theories of the said knowledge that I was trying to absorb. I've always been a thinker outside of the box and for that I've always been a sort of outcast. I am extroverted and introverted at the same time. I am very social but only to those I've grown accustomed to talking to. I sometimes keep quiet and shelter my intelligence either to shy away from making ppl feel insignificant.
