A truly intelligent person will be able to clearly convey their thoughts in the most concise manner possible.
that's an appropriate way to explain it. I know people like that too. Makes me wonder how they got hired in the first place.

Now handwriting... that's an interesting one. Doctors have the worst ever, while middle school girls have some of the cleanest and "prettiest". Is knowledge inversely proportional to handwriting legibility?
