Intelligence / Wisdom

As you might know, I follow Paul Graham’s work. His essay ‘Is It Worth Being Wise?” was out today. You should read it. I was feeling bad about few things and he explained that it is okay to feel bad about those things. It makes better sense to me now.

This is primarily about the difference between being intelligent and being wise.

As a Reddit-comment for that essay, I left:

an intelligent man gets drunk and goes for any girl he can get. a wise man gets a hot girl drunk so she’ll go for him. [valentine’s day funk]

and by the way, let it be known that I am a foolish man who just blogs about these.
