If you do not want to confine yourself to your area then browsing internet is the best option. There are many social networking websites where you can check members’ profiles, their likes, dislikes, mental aptitude etc. Though, there is a less possibility of face-to-face meeting through this method but it is still worth a try.
Create your own Intellectual group
Another way to socialise with intellectuals is to create your own group. This can not only be done on the internet but you can also start an art club or in any other area that interests you.
For that, you need a place for group meetings and discussions. You can seek help from your friends and hire a place otherwise you can organise meetings even at your house. It is better to make a schedule and ask every member to arrange some place for the session. This will reduce the financial burden and make it possible for you to socialise with intellectuals regularly.
Visit local library and book stores
Intellectuals are always good readers so local libraries and book stores can be places where you can meet the intelligentsia. Prominent book stores and libraries organise special events for their readers; you should keep the track and participate in these events regularly.
Participate in intellectual activities
You must spare some time and participate in intellectual activities. It can be anything like enactment of a literary play, a musical concert, a literary seminar, art exhibition etc. If not as an active member then participate as a visitor at least.
Get a relevant job
Another way to socialise with intellectuals is to work in the organisations that have some connection with the intelligentsia. You can run a book store, work in an art gallery or even establish a classy cafe for this purpose.
