Why do I live anchored out well away from the
stupid teeming lubberly masses?

Because, we highly intelligent people are
happier being independent.

"They concluded that, while people generally
feel happier when they spend time with others,
very smart people are an exception to this rule.

"The study said this could be because of evolution.

"Smarter people can more easily adapt to their
surroundings in the modern world, so they don’t
need close relationships to help them with food
and shelter, like our ancestors did. Or, in the
modern equivalent, the Wi-Fi password and a spare
phone charger.

"Their other theory is that smarter people are
more aspirational, and want to spend more time
working towards their goals, rather than
socialising.

"The study found that more intelligent people
actually had lower life satisfaction the more
frequently they socialised with friends -
spending time with friends actually made them
unhappy."

mince words, just to spare the sensibilities of
the thin-skinned or the ignorant."

I think there's some truth to that. Independence is a blessing, IMO.
People who NEED people, are the neediest people in the world.
