Patronising Intellect

Patronising those of a lesser (assumed) intellect than yourself can still be felt and 'understood' even though the action is possibly not recognised for what it is. What defines intelligence? A skilled artist may not be academically gifted, yet the work produced can be extraordinary. The intellect of the academic does not necessarily enable good artwork to be produced.

Philosophical (or any other) argument may require just cerebral input, but to produce art requires both intellect (to visualise) and mechanical dexterity. Neither the academic nor artist needs to be 'clever' as the appreciation of both is very subjective.
