Intelligence and empathy

It would seem that many people at genius level I.Q. like to be alone. Not all, but a good many.
Have you ever thought that the solitude they require is a means to escape the energy from others assaulting them.
Einstein thought abstractly and often escaped into his mind to form and or discover new and innovative ideas. He was not only brilliant but eccentric.
Just saying.

Thinking, believe it or not, is hard work! Innovative thinking is even harder! I can see why geniuses might crave time alone just to be with their thoughts and in their own heads. Sometimes dealing with people who don’t think like you can be frustrating and talking with someone on your level is refreshing. Add to that people being frustrated because you’re speaking of ideas they can’t connect with and they ridicule you for being different… I can see it!

Thanks, @Garnet you made my day! :hugs: :heart:

But then again, I am an introvert and an empath!
Just saying…
