may classmate ako dati huli na sa akto yung bf nya kasama yung ex nito sa loob ng bahay nung guy.. dapat yun pa lang na realize nya talaga na asshole yung guy.. nagawa pang ipaglaban nung girl yung bf nya.. geez.. dean's lister pa naman, but when it comes to real life situations, minsan sablay kung mag isip..
Simply put, high IQ doesn't necessarily mean high EQ (emotional intelligence). This isn't a shortcoming of any person but simply a reflection of how our brains are wired.
Emotions are seated in a more primal or primitive part of the brain while academic intelligence is a higher (and evolutionarily) newer ability. This disconnect is the root of many issues and heartaches, a good example of which is "you do not choose who you fall for
." You might know and recognize that falling for a married person is usually fruitless, or that a certain person will never love you back, but all this knowledge is useless in preventing you from falling for this person anyway. At the most, it might
prevent you from doing stupid things, but everybody knows how often this fails. That's why you see the brightest of people doing the stupidest of things for "love" or what they think is love. ;)
