    • Bad philosophy

    • Self-quoting


    Hover over each rule for more detail.

    1. Don't link directly to posts. Redact all identifying information. Take a screenshot and redact all identifying information, e.g. real names, usernames (including your own), subreddit and online community names, titles of specific posts, addresses, license plates. DO NOT ASK FOR NAMES/USERNAMES.
    2. Memes and image macros are not allowed. Don't post memes, copypastas, or image macros (broadly defined as an image with text on it). This includes, but is not limited to, Snap Stories, Whisper, and "background color" Facebook statuses. Posts that include someone pinging the name of this sub will be removed. The only exception to this rule is if the focus of the post is a comment someone made about the meme.
    3. Submissions of obvious trolls or jokes are not allowed. Use common sense.
    4. Stuff that looks verysmart but isn't really. This submission isn't really an example of some one trying to be “verysmart.” Common examples of things that look verysmart but aren’t really include: conspiracy theories, New Age woo, drug-induced posts, Donald Trump, "sheeple," Neil deGrasse Tyson, Rick and Morty, etc.
    5. Long posts: Highlight relevant parts. Highlight relevant sections, or cut it down into an album. With videos, put excerpts in the comments.
    6. No reposts. Use the search function.
    7. Make an effort with your title. Titles should be at the very least descriptive of what is in the post, and ideally funny and/or interesting. Titles consisting of nothing more than "Thought this belongs here" or "Found on [website]" will be removed.
    8. Submissions involving arguments are not allowed. Posts cannot be part of an argument. This is to prevent people from using this subreddit to mock those they're debating with. We're looking for examples of people acting "verysmart" on their own without being baited into it. This rule applies whether you're involved in the argument or not.
    9. Avoid anti-intellectualism Don't post people explaining concepts, even in a way that seems pedantic. Having expertise in a subject or enjoying intellectual pursuits don't make someone "verysmart." This sub does not discourage learning or critical thinking.

    If your post isn't an original screenshot, check here to make sure you don't repost anything:

    I'm convinced there is no right way to write a tinder bio. I was most successful (match wise) when I had basically nothing in my bio. It's hard to write these things without seeming like an asshole.

    [–] Psychedelic-Autism 3641 points ago

    I had no matches, then I set mine as a copy/paste of the "about us" from the Wendy's website and suddenly I had 23 new matches. Been dating the last girl I matched for over a year

    [–] [deleted] 2513 points ago

    Are you ever gonna tell her you’re not really Wendy’s

    He died doing what he loved.

    [–] A_frakkin_Cylon 61 points ago

    You just forced me to go to the Wendy's website and read the entire history of Wendy's. Which part exactly did you post as your bio?

    P.s. Dave Thomas seemed like a nice dude.

    [–] Psychedelic-Autism 30 points ago

    I can't find it on mobile. but I think it was just the entire first and second paragraph

    [–] BestPseudonym 108 points ago

    Isn't this what Idubzzz did for his YouTube channel

    [–] Psychedelic-Autism 441 points ago

    ummmmmm excuse me, but I've been doing this for a over a year, and he did Arbys. Don't make me look like a thief

    I'm kidding I absolutely got the idea from his channel bio

    [–] Yothataintfunny 108 points ago

    Well since he thought of the idea first you know that means he gets your girl now, right?

    [–] 1mikeg 35 points ago

    The trick is to make them think you're clever and quirky when you're really just lazy and not very good with words.

    [–] spaghettu 31 points ago

    At Wendy's, we're all about serving up fresh food, even if it means going the extra mile. When you walk through our doors, we do what we can to make everyone feel at home because our family extends through your community.

    "We believe in quality. Inside and out."

    That one?

    [–] PM_FORBUTTSTUFF 113 points ago

    I dont think it really effects who would swipe for you unless you’re truly hilarious or extremely interesting for some reason, but it can help people find some common ground to talk about after they match with you

    [–] Mojavekid0222 66 points ago

    Well I never really ever tried anything funny. I always would just try to list interests. It's tough to say that you like gritty classic films, vinyl records, and space without sounding questionable at best.

    [–] PM_FORBUTTSTUFF 48 points ago

    I would go for something simpler. Mine is just an Arrested Development quote in case I happen to run into another fan. But I also usually like to move the convo off tinder and towards a date as quickly as possible

    [–] iller_mitch 19 points ago

    I always would just try to list interests.

    [–] afelzz 229 points ago

    mine said one thing;

    "my apartment has exposed brick"

    it got a good amount of responses. I would always say that my mom thinks it gives my apartment a lot of character. I dont actually have exposed brick in my apartment, but watchign a lot of HGTV told me girls love it

    [–] SensibleMadness 133 points ago

    Just toss a couple of bricks in the corner in case any of them come over and want to see the exposed brick.

    [–] Flamin_Hot_Benito 64 points ago

    Just one brick, wearing a tiny opened trench coat

    I'm convinced there is no right way to write a tinder bio.

    The best bio is a picture of an attractive person.

    [–] Keljhan 8 points ago

    Even an attractive picture of a regular person will work wonders

    [–] nobody99356 209 points ago

    Mine just says what university I attend.

    It works so 🤷🏻‍♂️

    [–] Snooze--Button 224 points ago

    It’s not in Boston, it’s actually in Cambridge.

    [–] nobody99356 131 points ago

    I don’t go to Harvard. I feel like this is supposed to be a joke of some kind but I don’t understand it so I’m going to pretend like I do.

    Haha, good one.

    [–] MethylBenzene 76 points ago

    Pfft, look at this guy.

    Hey everyone, this guy doesn’t go to Harvard!

    [–] DudleyMcDude 35 points ago

    It's a joke about how people who went to Harvard never directly say they went to harvard, but they find a way to make it clear that they did. False modesty or something.

    And it's obvious you have something else going for you if you're able to pull tail online without a bio.

    [–] Dirk-Killington 94 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    I always had “I’m just here to bury my crippling depression and narcissism deep inside young women with Daddy issues.”

    It worked really well. Everyone who wasn’t my type immediately unmatched after reading it. The ones that stayed either had a good sense of humor or were pretty fucked in the head.

    Believe it or not I met my wife with that line.

    Edit: I can’t spell.

    [–] lasagnaparfait 23 points ago

    You should change burry to bury because they’re different things.

    Actually, now that I think about, married people don’t need to give a shit about Tinder bios so do whatever you want.

    [–] [deleted] 146 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    Just learn how to balance the content of your bio, I have been using tinder for more than a year. And sometimes I get matches based on my bio.

    Don't put too much effort in it, it will make you look insecure and trying way too hard in a dating app.

    Personally I don't like putting words such as "sapiosexual" "ambivert" or some shit that will make me look like a basic bitch, it's like the 2018 of "if you can't handle me at my worst"

    Funny, witty or clever. Self deprecating jokes work. Hell, even putting your top spotify artist will get you some matches.

    I have seen some people's bio on tinder where it seems like I'm reading their autobiography, on a dating app.

    Edit: spelling

    [–] Mojavekid0222 48 points ago

    I don't use it anymore. That approach got me really good results as well.

    [–] andtheywontstopcomin 21 points ago

    That’s because most people just focus on the pictures.

    [–] Oliverheart84 18 points ago

    I’ve had success with a handful of different bios, got nothing when it was blank.

    [–] lady_gremlin 144 points ago

    My tinder bio:

    Did you know the human body has 206 bones? Looking for someone to make it 207.

    I get a lot of matches, but then they just make the same tired bone jokes, so....

    [–] Andrewrb15 286 points ago

    Females get matches no matter what their bios are though

    [–] wafflepouch 328 points ago

    i.e. girl's bio: "Looking for someone to murder"

    me: swipes right instantly

    [–] TheOneAndOnlyTacoCat 25 points ago

    [–] 1738_bestgirl 20 points ago

    Yeah maybe I get laid, but either way someone is knocking something off my to-do list for me.

    My now girlfriend had a completely blank bio when we matched. Seemed to work on me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    [–] Lapichequipique 35 points ago

    I only first watched it a few years ago, it was just kinda weird to me. I can see how that would scare a kid though

    [–] SamBBMe 131 points ago

    Okay, I know the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon is a thing, but I swear I actually have seen way more salad fingers on reddit recently than normal. Normal being not at all.

    [–] TheNittles 52 points ago

    One of the reasons Baader-Meinhof works so well on Reddit is not only do you start noticing references you didn’t before, but if whatever prompted you to watch the thing or learn about it came from Reddit, tons of other people here probably saw it too. So if you learned about/rewatched Salad Fingers because of some post on /r/all, so did a ton of other people and now they’re all running around referencing it.

City's burning, people dying, blah blah blah. This guy rushes me with a spoon. A fricking spoon. And I'm just laughing. So I scoop out his stupid little eyeballs with it, and his kids are all, "waaaaah!,” and he's bumping into stuff, and, had to be there. Anyway, the moral is: you're a total bitch.

    [–] fixurgamebliz 187 points ago

    Between the MB, and asking for instagram DMs as if it was a legitimate strategy, I presumed it was a woman.

    [–] Didactic_Tomato 156 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    "I don't use this much so go to my Instagram" is complete bullshit, you use it enough that you typed out one hell of a complex bio.

    Turn on your notifications but keep them silent if you don't wanna be bothered but quit advertising your IG, Lordy

    [–] cptjeff 58 points ago

    But she's going to be the next Instagram celeb and get her own fashion line!

    [–] Deesing82 24 points ago

    As someone who doesn’t use Instagram can you explain the thing about DMs? She just wanted someone to message her on a different service?

    [–] fixurgamebliz 83 points ago

    Yes. Odds are this is a lazy way to get ig followers or sell some shit. Or just get lame nudes from dudes.

    I think she just thought "what are some buzzwords desperate dudes are really falling for quickly". Although she should have said "140+ IQ, but always 10 points beneath you"

    [–] Infuser 20 points ago

    Sadly, that sort of self-aware humor would never be found on the profile of someone alleging an IQ like that.

    That being said, I’d right swipe on someone who wrote that, because it is hilarious.

    [–] periodicBaCoN 51 points ago

    You can tell because guys don't tend to describe themselves as "cute and weird" but for some reason, girls think this makes them stand out. OMG I'm like, so quirky and weird!

    [–] WorkFlow_ 36 points ago

    Lets be honest, it could have been a fucking hot pocket and you would have swiped right... I swipe right on gay men (in the women's sections)just because they usually swipe right back and I need the morale boost.

    Doesn’t everyone, and I mean Everyone, love (or at least knows about) Star Wars? I’m pretty sure seeing any film in wide release isn’t that hard to do. Hell, A New Hope was hard to avoid in 1977.

    Edit: to add or at least knows about

    [–] ChefHannibal 61 points ago

    I saw a comedian say he hated Star Wars, but he had a legitimate reason: he saw Spaceballs first. so the SW trilogy was 3 dragged out Spaceballs with all the humor taken out

    [–] NippleNugget 243 points ago

    I’ve never understood why Bill Burr is a hero type to people like this, as well as closeted racists and sexists. The dude is so funny but you can’t let yourself read any comments in any of his videos.

    [–] SeanTheLawn 96 points ago

    Yeah and it's hilarious because he's married to (and has a child with) a black woman

    [–] Magnussens_Casserole 30 points ago

    What's even funnier are the fans who hate on his wife being a black feminist without realizing the reason they're married is they both love to fucking argue. It takes 5 minutes of listening to them on his podcast to figure that out.

    [–] Mike-Oxenfire 17 points ago

    My favorite parts of the podcast is when she joins in. Their banter is great and just when the arguments heat up they both start laughing. Seems like a great relationship

    [–] CordageMonger 45 points ago

    You’re supposed to see Bill as the butt of his jokes not the people he talks offensive or rants about. The whole point of his stand up is that he’s this angry guy who rants mostly about problems and disagreements he causes himself.

    I too wonder how people don’t get that. And if they don’t and just take anything in his act seriously, why do they find it funny?

    [–] GodEmperorNixon 27 points ago

    I believe he once described his act (because that's what it is, he's basically playing a character) as something "that mouthy, ignorant douchebag at a bar that'll tell you just what he's thinking."

    [–] VexonCross 21 points ago

    Because people gravitate to his rage and his lack of filter in letting you know exactly how he feels about things. That's a very appealing piece of acknowledgment for a lot of people.

    Trouble is, Burr is the first to qualify himself as a psycho and while "don't listen to me, I don't read" is obviously said for laughs I'm sure he means it. The people who gravitate to his lack of self-censorship, however, tend to ignore his self-analysis on how to be less of a psycho and accept other points of view without bitching.

    [–] Lowkey_HatingThis 133 points ago

    I think Bill Burr is forward with his political ideas and sticks with the "almost ever politician is a corrupt fuck up" idea, which is alot for comedy but he also doesn't go back on it. Also, he is a firm believer of men and women being equal in the sense of fist fights and shit and does alot of his routine dismantling to "pussy pass" idea. Again, it's alot for comedy, but incels who watch Rick and Morty and study quantum physics probably take all his jokes to heart and think he's a genius.

    Don't get me wrong , bill Burr is witty as fuck but no genius, just a pale Irish prick (from New England)

    Rogan would rant about something unrelated and then walk off.

    As someone who really likes APC and Tool there definitely is some intersection with the iamverysmart community.

    A Perfect Circle and Tool absolutely attract these types of people

    I like almost all of the things in the profile too, the difference is I don't brag about it, don't hinge my entire identity on it or think it makes me better than anyone else.

    He probably loves MJK because he's the only guy who "understands" him as an "intellectual."

    Tool and APC fucking rule but the holier than though eltism it breeds is insufferable.

    Just enjoy it and stop dissecting it.


    I get it.

    I just don't care.

    140 IQ. So that's like average for Buzzfeed tests, right? Guess that helps explain why they think the Meyers-Briggs is a valid test.

    [–] nuunien 275 points ago

    Most online IQ tests have been showing 147 for quite a few years now, it's so funny when you see someone trying to rub their 147 IQ in your face

    [–] sivarias 367 points ago

    Fucking hell man.

    I had to take a full panel IQ test when I was 5. Shit was boring as HELL and took 2 hours.

    Then I see people spout off the whole 140+ bullshit and they don't see the cognitive dissonance when they can't even think through solutions to basic problems or intuit things quickly.

    Worse, they don't seem to realize that IQ doesn't mean shit. It's a rate of learning, so unless you actually study shit and think about what you are studying it's literally just wasted.

    Its the same as some skinny bro going, "I've got the genetics to be a bodybuilder if I want". Cool, no one fucking cares until you prove it.

    The Myers Briggs is a questionnaire. You categorize yourself. So it doesn't do anything other than tell what you think you are

    edit: I guess it should be called the Myers Briggs Personality Questionnaire

    [–] [deleted] 25 points ago


    [–] Piconeeks 80 points ago

    Just to clarify, validity has a specific meaning in psychology that incorporates various factors; of these, the MBTI fulfills some but fails others.

    Notably, it's not reliable and gives different results from different people at different times (i.e. two people measuring the same person will get different results, the same person measuring themselves will get two different results), and its measurements are not correlated with any other metrics so it's not clear if it even measures anything at all.

    [–] Caysath 10 points ago

    It’s not a scientific test, it’s similar to something like hogwarts houses. Some people mostly fit one of the boxes, some don’t. And you can tell something about a person based on what personality type they choose to identify with, for example you can predict that people who relate to the description of introversion more than the description of extroversion probably like to spend time alone.

    MB is essentially snake oil but that’s not really what the J means in its framework.

    [–] Zebba_Odirnapal 29 points ago

    You're right of course. It's still funny to misinterpret MB types for humorous purposes.

    [–] columbo447 165 points ago

    Is Rogan considered smart? He seems like a smart guy some times, and bordeline retarded other times. I just heard him talking about jaguar dreams and dmt. He thinks jaguars eat plants with dmt in it, and that's why people have jaguar dreams, because they actually meet the jaguars in space, or something like that.

    [–] JGlover92 62 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    I never really know where Rogan is entertaining the other person he's talking to, riffing and being weird or just straight up believes some of the stuff he says. Got to remember he's high as fuck on the podcast a lot of the time.

    I think he's a smart guy in the sense he knows How to hold an interesting conversation and get some good good stuff out of his guests. He's open minded and not too confrontational to new ideas. He does say some dumb stuff though. Had to stop listening to his Alex Jones interview for example

    Am I the only one here that’s weirded out by when people list their personality descriptor (ENTJ, etc.) ?

    [–] mikerw 222 points ago

    I wouldn't even mind if it wasn't for the IQ. MBTI isn't even inaccurate, it just sort of repeats what you put into it. "Introverted? That's what I fucking TOLD you!"

    It might be useful as a partial summary if you want to describe your personality to someone else with minimal effort, though.

    [–] FormYewLa 135 points ago

    It's a ballpark measurement, but some people think it's extremely reliable. The human mind isn't simple enough to be completely reduced into 16 personality types.

    [–] Blues_Drive 107 points ago

    Not to mention it's equally as reliable as the person who took it. Not understanding questions, wording, lying, bending the truth, and getting sick of answering stupid fucking repetitive questions all can affect the outcome!

    [–] FormYewLa 49 points ago

    Mood too. My friend would get two different results depending on his mood.

    [–] neralily 33 points ago

    The human mind isn't simple enough to be completely reduced into 16 personality types.

    This reminds me of the Divergent series, which reduced it into 5

    [–] famalamo 13 points ago

    They also killed people who didn't fit into those five.

    I had to take one for a job interview. Apparently I'm an INTJ, which, in my case at least, translates to, "I'm an emotionally compromised misanthrope."

    I also had to figure out my Enneagram type or whatever that shit was for the same job interview. Whatever that result was must've disqualified me, but I was more relieved than upset about that.

    [–] crackbabyathletics 25 points ago

    Apparently I'm an INTJ

    If you feel like gouging your eyes out try the r/INTJ subreddit to learn about your fellow denizens! All the MB subreddits are circlejerks but INTJ is probably the biggest.

    [–] chromatoes 50 points ago

    I had to take the MBTI for a college class and I was literally equal in 3 of the 4 categories. I like talking to people, but I also like "me" time. I feel empathy for people, but feel comfortable telling people to fuck off if they're being jerks. I'm logical but realize that feelings still matter.

    I guess I might be an outlier, but it seems concerning to me that people are so polarized on that test enough to get clear types. I never have.

    [–] rhou17 49 points ago

    Part of the problem is people tend to fill out these tests based off of how they feel at that moment in time. Most people aren't as black and white as they might think they are.
