    Of course! She wasn't reading it because she doesn't read books.

    She just writes them occasionally.

    Why do women feel they have to be intelligent to be respected?? If she doesn't read, so what? Not everbody reads. I doubt anyone would call her for not reading, not everyone enjoys it, but I don't see why she has to lie about it!

    Not everyone I respect has a 160 IQ, but I don't respect willfully stupid people either. In Victoria Beckham's case, I think she plays up her "I'm a dumbass" routine and I find it asinine and grating.

    As for women in general, I can think of worse things to try and earn respect with than intelligence.

    I know what you mean, complete bimbos have no excuse for being dumb but I don't think women should feel pressure to be up to date with current affairs or read the most popular books etc. I am not stupid but I know I can be ditsy, I don't do it purposely to seem cute I just slip up sometimes if I don't concentrate or something.

    I have a friend that goes to Uni, she doesn't know what she wants to do yet but whenever we meet up she purposely goes on about her Uni work and describes in great details how the human body and mind works, like Im interested, she knows I don't have a clue what she's talking about, she just does it to make me feel stupid. But at the end of the day, she's a struggling student with nothing that doesn't have a clue what to do with her life and I have a good job earning good money, a wealthy bf with a mortgage and a nice car and I have my own decent newish car! I could brag about how successful I am and how much money I haev to her, but I don't so why should she just because she is more intelligent?

    We both got the same in our GCSE results at school too which really pissed her off too coz she revised religeously non stop and I was just relaxed about it

    I have several friends who are very much like this. They are great people and I enjoy their company, but I don't discuss current affairs, politics, literature or art with them. I've tried before and I can tell they are simply uninterested. I don't do it to make them feel unintelligent at all. I do it because I like hearing about things I don't know anything about or hearing someone else's viewpoint on issues and sometimes I project that onto other people. I know not everyone is like that though, so the one's that don't respond to the discussion, I don't bring it up again. So, with them we stick to things I know we're both interested in.

    That said, I do think that not having even a cursory knowledge of current affairs and what's going on in the world is doing onesself a disservice. Just my 2 cents, though.

    How do you know she's doing it to make you feel stupid? She may think that her friend is interested in what she's up to. She doesn't have a job to talk about, so she talks about her school work instead. What's wrong with that?

    You don't know my friend. I am interested when she talks about school but she tells me exactly how everything works, I don't tell her how to build websites because its not fair to bore people with what you do when you know they don't understand it.

    She's always been the same anyway, she does it to everyone, even her bf. I've tried to join in with her biology lessons to be nice and seem interested but then she just corrects me and says 'I suppose you won't understand' it pisses me off, I don't think she should do it.

    Well...maybe she's just trying to share her life with you and isn't doing a good job of it. And maybe she uses her schooling to try to one-up you because she may feel intimidated that you're successful and she's still a poor student. That won't last long though; she'll finish eventually. It's never easy to see someone that you feel is your intellectual equal pulling ahead of you.

    Is that 'assistant' one of those creepy Scientologist klingon minders like Katie Holmes had? They follow you into the bathroom and generally control your life while you are making the 'transition' from reality to the wacky world of Scientology??

    I think she does it coz her older sister is really intelligent and successful effortlessly and she has always had to work really hard because she's not a natural genius like her sister. I feel quite sorry for her coz her parents are always comparing them. But she shouldn't belittle everyone else because she feels inferior at home. She may know more than me now because she's been to Uni but it was my choice to get a job instead of going to Uni so I don't see why she tries to compete. We were always pretty equel in school, in the same sets, got the same grades but I was never as in to school as she was, maybe thats why she feels she needs to prove herself.

    Im not the only one that says this, all her friends feel stupid when she talks to them about Uni, yet my brother does it all the time, but he's not smug about it he just likes to share what he's learned with me, its not like he's trying to show me how much knowledge he has!!

    Ah, it's becoming more clear now. She's not getting the approval she needs at home, so maybe she's seeking it from you. She's probably not doing it in the right way; she's definitely rubbing you the wrong way, but maybe she just wants you to tell her she's smart. It sounds maybe like she's fishing for compliments. She's probably insecure because of the way her parents treated her.

    Try not to take it personally; I know it's hard.

    because reading you learn about things. how are you going to learn then? from people that doesn't read either?

    reading opens your eyes for a bigger world than the one you live in. and there is no such thing as "i don't like to read". you just didn't find your genre yet.
