Do you ever feel as if you are probably repeating yourself, but the idea feels semi-unused, so you write it anyways? No? Just me then...
People say that intelligence is sexy. I get it, intelligence can be an extremely attractive trait, especially when one has a low idiot tolerance. But I don't find intelligence itself to be inherently sexy--I have known some brilliant people who's minds I found not in the least bit attractive.
No, my weakness is competence.
Want to see the whore in me squirming under the surface? Drop me in the presence of a competent man with a Dominant personality. I avoid them as much as I can. You know, besides the obvious pitfalls of being married to one...
Stupidity turns me off. Incompetence really brings out the mean girl in me (as my husband likes to remind me). A mixture of stupidity and incompetence, and my worst traits come pouring forth in a nastily predatory manner. But uh, we don't have to talk about that since he's not here to promote the fact.
Luckily for me, I married a man who is both intelligent, and competent. Here's the thing though--sometimes his intelligence infuriates me. There are times when he thinks circles around me, and I really just want to kick him in the shins. What can I say, sometimes those baser instincts take over, leaving self-preservation in the wind.
It's his competence that really gets me going. Oh yes, competence is definitely one of the cornerstones of a beautiful mind. So totally sexy.
Competence is not necessarily how much you know about something, or how smart you are--it's about how you choose to handle yourself and the manner in which you deal with challenging situations.
It's important to know that one has put their well-being in capable hands, because really, not only is incompetence a turn off, it can be downright dangerous.
Did I mention that I find competence to be incredibly sexy?
*Sigh* He says I'm easy.
