I don’t know if any of you guys have noticed, but I’m a massive troll. Literally when people ask me “What does your job entail?” my answer is some variation of “I act like a jackass on the Internet, get money and then fuck bitches.” Only 2/3rds of that answer is even accurate and I’ll leave it up to you to decide which 2/3rds it is, but the fact that I spent four years in college writing about sexual imagery sprinkled throughout Shakespeare’s plays just to get paid to sit on Reddit all day goes to show that being mildly charismatic gets you way further in life than any intellect whatsoever.
Don’t believe me? Look at Rain Man, and then look at Forest Gump. Rain Man is a goddamn genius who lives in a mental institution, whereas Forest Gump is a lovable idiot who winds up swimmin’ in more money than he can count by the end of the movie. Granted, Forest Gump can only count to like, 5, but you get the idea.
If these wonderful pop culture references aren’t enough proof for you that charisma > brains, then here’s a guy on OkCupid who’s not only NOT charismatic but also an idiot. The following conversation is a perfect example of someone who’s painfully oblivious to social cues as well as a raging moron. If you’re the woman in this exchange, hit me up and we can troll Tinder for fools like this while chillin’ in the corner of a Starbucks drinking mocha frappa-whatevers. I don’t drink coffee, but I’m willing to sacrifice myself to our mighty caffeine overlords just for you.
