Are depressive people less intelligent than non-depressive people because they can't correctly judge themselves and can't realize their true value is higher than they think?

@ggfy,
How long have you contemplated this less intelligent line of thinking? If pain persists consult a recreational pharmacologist.

@laughoutlood,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depressive_realism

In other words:
Depression is a higher state of consciousness in which your pleasant illusions are dispelled, leading you to realise your utter irrelevance and worthlessness. Comprehension of this higher truth inevitably leads you to the only acceptable solution. This state is incorrectly perceived by mainstream society as a medical condition, arguably because a depressed person tends to destabilise the pleasant illusions of others.

Depressed people display specific symptoms that include contemplating suicide, listening to **** music, and writing 10 entries a day on LiveJournal. If a friend or loved one tells you that they are depressed or suicidal, you can see if this is the case by teasing the **** out of them mercilessly, both online and in real life. If you drive them to suicide, then they were probably genuinely depressed, and the world is better off without them bringing down everyone's buzz. But if they don’t top themselves, you should kill them right where they stand, because they are lying posers and not worth listening to.

@cicibebe,

Who told you that?

If a friend or loved one tells you that they are depressed or suicidal, you can see if this is the case by teasing the **** out of them mercilessly, both online and in real life.

sort of unlikely, but possible.


If you drive them to suicide, then they were probably genuinely depressed, and the world is better off without them bringing down everyone's buzz.

why would you think that?

But if they don’t top themselves, you should kill them right where they stand, because they are lying posers and not worth listening to.

You need a hobby.

@cicibebe,
I get that you're being a troll, but my Dad has major depression, he was a science professor who only listened to classical music, and never kept a journal.
