You have a prepensity to "hammer" and berate people who disagree with you.
And your assessment of "the people who disagree" with me, the ones I "hammer."

quote:
You posses critical thinking and intelligence that is probably off the charts.

So do not expect all people to measure up to your plateau.
I appreciate the compliment, though I don't believe I possess anything, intelligence or otherwise, that others do not. And I think your estimation of my expectations (which are, first and foremost, for people to be honest when presenting their views) is off.

To reiterate, I don't believe I possess anything in the way of critical thinking or knowledge that others don't possess.

You can educate the masses... without berating people, Nmaginate.
Been down this road... Not trying to be nobody's teacher but anyone who wants to learn must take the posture of a student. That require an attitude or approach change by someone other than me. When it comes time to share information or addressing a sincere question without non-student like baggage attached, I share liberally.

I think Kevin says it best when he notes how he treats people accordingly. One, I'm not that arrogant and, quite frankly, know I don't know that much to dare act like I'm suppose to "educate" grown people especilly when they're trying to assert grown-ness.

When I want information from someone more knowledgeable than me, I sure don't approach them in anything but a respectful manner.
