#3. You tend to rationalize everything – even when you are getting hurt
Logical reasoning and rationalizing is a good tool, unless it is used to trivialize sensitive topics.
That’s what we have even been advised to do – to not show that we know a lot – even if we do know a lot.
This is not because of humility, but because people simply do not like know-it-alls.
Sometimes, even the intelligent need advice. Even they need help and support.
Sometimes, intelligence and being good, instead of being a privilege becomes a liability.
And that is when you really start thinking about how the society actually behaves.
