So. Do you believe in this old adage, that "with great age comes great wisdom"? Are people who are older than you really all that much smarter than you? Are people who are younger than you really dumber?
Personally, I get annoyed by this idea. Yeah, looking at my age over on the left there, one might think that on a forum such as this I'd think I know everything or something. As I've said in another thread, I still look and sound 17 or so, which presents many problems, especially concerning this quote. People randomly assume they're smarter than I am just because I look young. I prefer not to talk about my IQ cause then it sounds like I'm bragging, but suffice to say I'm smarter than the average person, and I really don't like my intelligence being underestimated for stupid reasons.
But it's not just my personal situation that influences my view on such things. I honestly think that the way one acts is more important than one's actual age. You could be 13 and I could still respect you for your ideas and points of view if they make sense to me or are presented in a mature manner, and doesn't necessarily have to be a view I agree with. On the flip side of the coin, you could be 70 and I could still think you're an idiot from the way you act (like when my dad yells at me because his computer isn't working properly...).
So... what do you think of this quote? Discuss.
