This is also the cornerstone of wisdom. You can be incredibly book-smart, but that isn't going to get you anywhere if you don't apply that intelligence in service of reality and common sense. A smart person with a broken pipe can easily find Plumbing DIY sites on the Internet. A wise person can determine whether it's worth attempting a fix, or cheaper in terms of time, money and effort to call a professional and get it done.

And somewhere in the interface between those two positions, ego gets to have a say. Intelligence + Ego says "I can do this myself. I don't need help." Wisdom says "It's Sunday night, the hardware store is closed, I have to be up for work at 6:00, and we have house guests flying in tomorrow evening," and dials the plumber.

Even someone with "book smart" with no experience or "street smarts" would show more self awareness when they communicate. It's kinda a hallmark of intellect.

Are you sure it's not a hallmark of intuition?

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

He doesn't believe half of the shit he spouts, his very username says troll. He can't be any clearer about his intentions (well, I guess he could if his username was "troll").
...
And how do I deduce the Angry Manboy is a "he" you might reasonably ask, very few women act like an angry manboy, that's how I know.
