"A smart person is like a smart fish, they know when to take the bait, and when the bait is going to get them 'took'!"
"however, a smart person is like a frog in water, in the sense that frogs are extremely senstitive to changes in temperature. As a third party observer, when you see the "frogs" jumping away from somebody, that's your first clue to what's going on."
"Conventional smart means that you can process information quickly. The smart person is like a combination James Bond and Sherlock Holmes: Smart in meetings, properly ingesting all relevant sales information and outputting perfect-fit solution presentations."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
