J has a tested IQ above 150. (We were both working for a large scientific company where we were occasionally tested.) I find her intelligence incredibly stimulating. There is never a lack of meaningful conversation. I always have a sounding board for new ideas. With intelligence comes a vivid imagination and a sometimes warped sense of humor. She excels at grasping the meaning of current affairs and connecting to historical significance. There is no chance of winning an a debate unless I am very well versed and prepare my arguments carefully. I never have to look anything up, I just her. (As long as it's not math or engineering - that's what I'm good at.)
Life with a smart partner is a challenge but it's a lot of fun. But I do have to listen to BBC radio four, her favorite internet station.

I hardly think i'd grossly intelligent but sometimes her level frustrates me, If I didnt love her so much, i'd have to cull her as I hate having to explain myself too.
I like a partner that can relate to me and vice versa, although some guys don't like an intelligent woman and tend to bypass them.

Intelligence is a must for me to get turned on. If my partner can't stimulate my mind, how could they possibly stimulate me elsewhere? I agree with Alessandra in that sharing knowledge is very intimate.

I know what you mean Duchess haha. But I like intelligence in people and if I had a partner I would love that quality to have engaging conversations and etc.

Between my friends, all of us just use IQ as a "dick swinging" contest, nothing more, and we all know it is meaningless in our group. We all have our specialties where we can help the others and teach them, thus allowing for good discussions and debates. All of us also realize that our significant others will need to be able to keep up with us if they want to stay. It may seem egotistical, and it probably is a little bit, but that's just how we all feel.
