Anything pertaining to intelligence like using words like midwit or pseud. Every really smart person I’ve met has been pretty humble and not concerned with how they come off

>> No.21022388

midwit is the peak midwit word, in the original usage "midwits" were ones with slightly above average intelligence who were very concerned with appearing more intelligent than others, and the current usage it's "look at me, the big brain man, my intelligence is extremely high, so much so that I use average intelligence as an insult"

Midwit = slightly above average, trying to act like a big brain person.
The words you listed are just specific insults against certain groups of people, two of which (at bare minimum) you belong to.
Honestly that projection makes you appear like a midwit yourself. whereas those /pol/acks are just bitter incels that probably aren't even close to the average IQ to begin with.

However, since I failed to contribute to the discussion, let me add my two cents.
A midwith is in my opinion someone who is a try hard, but also a person unable to come up with original thoughts of his own and then to elaborate those thoughts to a wider audience, be it a small group of people or an online audience. These people still desire to have "intellectual" discussions and perhaps even debates, but since they have no original thoughts, they adapt the thoughts and ideas of other people who are actual thinkers. /lit/ is a perfect example of this, usually midwits will post bait titles and/or images with some snarky remarks to defend "their" ideas, which they totally didn't just pick up from somebody else. Often I see people debating whether Berserk (the manga) was influenced by Nietzsche philosophy and they probably do so after having watch some YouTube video on that topic and not after having read one and the other work, more often than not they've only read the manga and nothing from Nietzsche, but having their consumerism acknowledged as something profound makes them feel good about themselves and by extension more intelligent than others. Similarly in my society, people that work for the government and try to act profound, go to the theater where you can see low quality comedy enactments, worse than the average sitcom, but they go regardless, to show how cultured they are. So yeah in the end I'd summarize that a midwith is a try hard person, in need of attention and someone wanting to conform to social norms, but considering themselves superior to the lowest level plebs, whilst just consuming slightly more critically acclaimed content. A truly intelligent person, which I don't claim to be, I'd say that I am a midwit myself most likely, is someone who doesn't act upon emotions and does something for the rationale benefit of what that endeavor may bring, without the need to justify or mystify said act, for example:

Midwit:
>I go to the theater because I am a cultured individual and want to enjoy more profound entertainment

Smart and (ironically) dumb and honest people:
>I go to the theater because it's fun and I can meet new people sometimes.

Basically once you stop rationalizing you stop being an obvious midwit.

I agree, though I don't see that sentiment used while discussing literature, but music and video games get it rough. Now, sure, maybe some game from '98 won't have the technical ability to change every few minutes, but 90% of people just use these complaints to mask that they have no real points to make
