I asked him for clarification
Me: So you’re saying that the reason why I’ve been losing is that I’m too intelligent?
Eliot (him): Yes, that’s what I’m saying…no I’m not be sarcastic.
Toastmasters is the only portion of my life now where I can use my intelligence to my advantage. Or so I thought.
I’m beginning to understand now that it is attitude more than intelligence that wins debates.
