I believe that smart people have hunter-gatherer minds (intuitive in Myers-Briggs), whereas most people have farmer minds and these two are often not very compatible.

Hunter-gatherer people often become deeply introverted in childhood already, because they understand that they are different from the vast majority of people (INs only make up about 10{65d74b771b6ceff07eaefc19ffed56e0ab6ea89ffc0f0b38516c35f1ac414386} of the population) and when they grow up they feel they are misunderstood and that they can’t make a change anyway.

Read “The Little Prince” and you get an idea of what it is like for a gifted kid to grow up: you see the elephant inside the boa where others see a hat (NB: this is a metaphor):

“Whenever I encountered a grown-up who seemed to be intelligent, I would experiment on him with my Drawing Number One, which I have always kept. I wanted to see if he really understood anything.

But he would always answer, “That’s a hat.” … So I lived by myself, with no one to talk to”

So, what is the point of talking about something other people can’t see??? 90% of the time we would be wasting our energy and that is why we keep quiet. People would think we are crazy.
