It is not surprising, but interesting to know that there is a word for this. I can’t say that intellect is the sole deciding factor for my attraction to someone, but it is the primary one. But if your smart but have no compassion, no interest there. I have always found it important to be able to talk to someone about nothing and everything. I want to be able to analyze and really dig into topics. I don’t want to just read a book or watch a movie. I am one of those people who then want to pick it apart and dig around in it. There is always metaphor and layers at work. There is value at looking at and considering those things. I need people in my life who can have those kinds of conversations with me. I can’t imagine being with a partner who can’t do that. I am blessed that Monkey is in my life and can go there with me 🙂 Monkey, I love you! Thank you for following me down my strange rabbit holes!
