ive been reading a ton of books, and now my speech is far more sophisticated than any of my friends. im only 14 years old, and the fact that i use some advanced vocab turns them off.
so basically is it possible to read too much? i fear if i keep reading ill be too smart. i know that sounds so silly but, its simple true.
ive heard that people can only communicate with other people whose iq is within +-10 points. any validity to this?
I don't think there's ever such a thing as too smart. Perhaps you are more mature than they are and they put you down because you are educating yourself through reading. Most adolescents your age are more inclined to do other things than read and expand their vocabulary. That's not to say reading is a bad thing, on the contrary it's a wonderful activity. All of your reading and language skills will come in handy for taking the SATS's and for college.
As far as communication is concerned, I think that most often people who are intelligent can relate to others who are intelligent and not so much with those who do not think on the same "level". I hope this helps.
I'm also 14 and it did may of on the ACTs. I hardly studied it at all, because I wasn't taking it for a college. I just wanted to see what I can do. I've read many books, it evn makes my parents worried. Because they are afraid that i'll ruin my eyes. Anyways, back to what I was saying. I got a 29 on the reading test, which to me was awesome, since I was only in the 8th grade.
So keep on reading, it'll pay off. (Just don't go on about quantum physics and string theory to you're friends. lol happened to me with someone, he was like umm... ok. Even though I do have friends who also understand so that was cool. If you talk about normal stuff, i think it'll be ok)
read as much as you want just talk normal, don't say anything that you think they won't be able to comprihend.
Yeah I am kind in the same situation except I am reading the Anne Of Green Gables novels and some times they kind mess with me a little because since they are set in older times. They use weird phrases and hard words that sometimes I look up on the computer to figure out what they mean, but I think I agree with everyone else I don't think there's a such thing as to much reading.
Get new friends quickly, before you yourself to their level.
Absolutely. BobPursley is right. Just remember that school lasts for a very short time in your life, and those school friends will not be with you when your reading and intelligence and education pay off. There is no such thing as too much reading!
I agree with the other responders to your questions. It's impossible to read too much!
However, a really smart person knows when and where to use specific vocabulary. A far out example -- if you're fluent in both French and English, you don't speak French to people who only speak English. You also don't use teen slang when you're talking with a retired teacher. We all use different vocabulary and ways of speaking with different audiences.
I suggest that you talk with your friends with words they understand. Their vocabulary is just as meaningful as the vocabulary you've learned from books. The whole point is that you want to communicate with people -- and adjust your vocabulary to do so.
Your reference to communicating only with people with a similar IQ is not valid -- thank goodness! I've had great discussions with people whose IQs range from 50 to 160.
Don't be afraid of being too smart. And keep on reading!
