    Intellect involves the mind, how it's used to make decisions, formulate ideas, etc. The apostle Paul reminded Christians that Jehovah views “the wisdom of the wise men” and the “intelligence of the intellectual men” of the day as foolish. (1 Corinthians 1:19)

    Perhaps you respond more with your thought than your emotion?

    Good grief!  Not to be insulting,  but the first thing that comes to mind, which to me is obvious, and also one that would immediately occur to an intellectual: why don't you ask them?

    Purely anecdotal, so we need some evidence of your intellectualness to make a judgement on your level of intellectualality and whether this is true or a wicked lie caused by yourself and the internet in cahoots.

    I don't know you, nor have I spoken to you - so I really couldn't say why someone might call you an intellectual..

    Is that commonly used word, how many people have called you that. Also, am I a dumbass for not knowing what that word means?

    Sound like it has nothing to do with you.  It's just that you hang around with very stupid people.
