The core energy for the dark intellectual lateral thinker is being arrogant about your intellect. Having a superior attitude when dealing with others and making them feel uncertain.
On the one hand, there is so much about being an intellectual that serves you – you are after all one of the world’s great minds – and on the other hand there is so much about being a dark intellectual that trips you up.
When you are experiencing your intellectual category from a place of collapsed energy, the overall negative attitude is arrogance and a feeling that everyone else is an idiot. You think that you are the only one who is right and you don’t mind making others feel stupid. You use your considerable intellect to tear down and criticize rather than to build up and create. Pity isn’t it?
You are good with words and instead of using language to make others feel good, you often take on a condescending tone. It takes you a while to realize that saying the same thing, but in a louder more irritated voice, doesn’t usually make what you are saying easier to understand. Seriously!
Yet, when you are experiencing your intellectual category from a place of expanded energy, you contribute to our world with your considerable intellect and your amazing ability to think things through.
