Another way to present the 9 types of intelligence as exemplified by my How Do We Measure Intelligence post.
The basic idea is that different people are good at different things. These 9 probably don’t cover the wide range of smarts we all possess, but it’s a start.
As Albert Einstein said, ”Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
Got all of them except the maths and the other humans.
This is my third time watching Divergent and while some people think it preaches feminism and equality, I don’t see that at all. What I see is a pronounced and disproportionate amount of graphic violence against young girls in a movie marketed to those same young girls. I’m tallying the number of face-hits (not head shots) these girls take compared to their male counterparts, for those of you who don’t believe me.
IIII IIII IIII
*not to mention, Tris is almost shot in the face three different times.I’m not using that data point directly for my argument because this is a comparison of women being hit in the face on camera only, but it’s worth noting.
*for reference, most of the hits men receive in this film are unclear and mostly out of the frame, and not directly to the face which compared to the graphic depiction of violence against women is sexist as fuck.
In Tris’s second fist fight, she’s hit FOUR TIMES in the face on camera by her opponent who isn’t hit in the face even once (points for the throat). For further comparison, in Four’s scene with Marcus the violence is only implied, leaving Four with his dignity by not allowing the audience to see him prostrated and defeated, as we are repeatedly forced to see the female characters in this film. And don’t you dare tell me that punching a girl twice as many times in a fight as you would a boy makes her an equal. It only makes her an equal if her male counterparts receive the same violence, which they did not in this film.
I don’t have a problem with women being trained the same way men are in a military environment, what with my sister being a USAFA cadet, she’s helped me understand the importance of cadets abandoning the idea of not hitting a girl in the name of survival. The problem I have is the graphic representation of violence perpetrated against girls in a movie that is considered “feminist.” If the wrong type of guy sees this, he may use “equality” as an excuse to beat the daylights out of innocent women.
Divergent was a step in the right direction in terms of Tris’s integrity, courage, fortitude, and quick-thinking. However, if I had a young teen child, boy or girl, I would not show them this film. I would encourage them to read the books perhaps, but I refuse to think that equality means hitting a woman in the face on camera and men in film are allowed dignity.
I hate when guys are like “oh you’re not one of those girls that’s going to order a salad for dinner are you?” MAYBE I AM. MAYBE I FUCKING LIKE SALADS. HAVE YOU EVEN TASTED RASPBERRY VINAIGRETTE.
When you rid of all your clothes,
I expected a bed of clouds,
A scatter of shooting stars.
You were a meteor shower.
You exploded and made galaxies around my room.
You fucked me as if space was going to cave in on itself.
I never knew matter could create something like you.
1. start off with slow kisses
2. when he’s least expecting it jam your tongue down his throat so no one can hear his screams
3. swallow him whole
4. slither away you fiesty anaconda

1. This looks like the weirdest movie ever.
2. Daniel Radcliffe sounds like a COMPLETELY different person with an American accent. His voice literally sounds lower.
3. Oh look, a movie where Daniel Radcliffe makes friends with a snake!
