    [pseudointellectual] what we really need is a proper inter-rater reliable scale for the features and atributes that indicate pseudo and genuine intellectualism. [/pseudointellectual]

    What is a pseudo intellectual when it’s at home?

    Like any true pseudo intellectual, I’ll field that one utilising the power of Wiki…

    pseudo intellectual may be used as a general term of abuse for intellectuals one dislikes or disagrees with … a pseudo intellectual is someone dishonestly or insincerely using the language, style, or topics of an intellectual, but who lacks the goals, morals, or ability of a β€œgenuine” intellectual. It is someone who acts pretentiously and wishes to win an argument or impress, rather than modestly trying to find the truth – a focus on surface and rhetoric over content.

    I’m a pseudo pseudo intellectual, hanging out with pseudo intellectuals in the hope that some intellectualism will rub off on me, allowing me to increase my status in society get the girls ( I don’t really like the sort of girls that real intellectuals attract )

    How do you define an actual Intellectual? Is Mark the yardstick against who everyone else is measured?

    Define ‘Mark’.

    I have no idea what that means, except that it’s likely to get a frenzied mod trying to burn you out of your house shouting ‘PSEUDOS OUT’.

    I’d say that covers about 95% of STW posters…..

    I think you have to be a member of the Institute of Physics to be a pseudo intellectual

    I’m one. Being an actual intellectual requies work and reading. I pretend to be clever but I don’t have the background in classics, philosophy or literature that I ought to.

    I’ll totally fess up to that one, wwaswas. πŸ™

    I might also use it as a medical condition next time the family comes around and suggests Monopoly or some other hellish pastime.

    shoe size squared multiplied by the square root of the number of posts on STW in a month

    Having made a quick mental calculation (which I can do because I’m a proper pseudo intellectual and know how to use a calculator), I discover to my shame that I my interlectulism score is miserably low.

    Must post more. Or stretch feet.
