Philosophy: Too much Intelligence

the_dos_and_donts_of_hiring_for_attitude_v2I was my Toastmasters club last night after losing my 5 debate in a row I was talking with one of the senior members out of the blue stated that I was too intelligent.

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.
