brilliance does not excuse bad behavior

2:46 a.m. and I’m wondering why brilliant men behave like jerks.

>maybe they feel entitled.
>maybe they are merely impatient to get to the next brilliant thing. maybe they need to run over people to get there.
>maybe they’re irritable and impatient, as well as brilliant.
>maybe they’re having a bad day. week. month. or even a year.
>or maybe a jerk is a jerk. brilliant or not. and behaves thus.

which makes me appreciate, all the more, all the brilliant people who are beautifully behaved.
