I am stupid.

I suppose I'm fairly successful but no where nearly as successful as a lot of people. I can only conclude it's because I am stupid.

I cannot utter inanities like an ex-boss of mine just did with his smarmy confidence and faux British accent: "If this were a subset of Agency Name, it wouldn't create focus for what's a collaborative model."

I don't get that.

I am also too stupid to understand an agency that trumpets this as a mission: "Agency Name to Produce Ideas for Brands and Manage Distribution Strategies."

I thought ideas needed to be created not just produced. But then, I don't work at that agency any more.

the problem with great minds is that it often takes another great mind to recognize it. Only after it's been recognized will other nod in unison.
I don't know that Einstein was a genius, I wouldn't get what he did if he tried to explain it to me as I'm too stupid for that. I am told he is a genius. By other geniuses. I believe them.
However, I think I can tell when I read a story written by a genius. Because, at least, I can read. And appreciate a good story. But what the heck the guy you describe said is either way above me, or the sort of non-speak that makes a person successful in the corporate world?
In which case it's an art i definitely will never learn.
