I was talking to my hairdresser; she’s extremely smart and what used to be called, “quick on he uptake”.
Whatever subject I broach, she grasps the meaning almost immediately. Further, when she can’t, she’ll tell you. “I don’t understand.” Hearing this, I can clarify what I’m saying. Invariably, the problem is on my end. I’ve slipped and spoke in code.
Provided I speak English, this gal will to understand what I’m saying, two-thirds the way through. So much can be said to a person like this – quickly.
Compare this to someone who can’t understand anything you might tell them, ever, under any circumstances. I really like my hairdresser!
“What are you going to do, Elsa?” she asked.
“Nothing more,” I said. “What else can I do? If you take a person who is super-intelligent and they’re to be evaluated by a person who is moderately intelligent, the second person is not going to come up with a correct answer. The super-intelligent person is going run circles around the other every time. It will take an act of God for this to be figured out.”
I brought up this old post because Mercury is currently squaring Saturn. The mind has limits and the lines are in different places for different people.
