    Morty is Rick when he's young. Rick says he used to wear blue pants. Morty is obsessed with red heads which Rick expressly asks to have an orgy with only redheaded Unity women

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but "Emotional Intelligence" does not exist. You only have IQ. High IQ combined with a high score in the personallity traits like conscientiousness and honesty results in "emotional intelligence", but it's really just high IQ combined with the right personality.

    With out watching first. Morty has to exist or else rick will really just freak out planet people. They are both like each other so it is easy for people to comort around them. Whole aspect of it. Mentally/god has to do with this

    I truly appreciated this video. firstly, the narrator sounds very attractive and has a nice voice. secondly, it's nice to get insight into Rick and Morty's relationship. I liked that many important points were brought up relating to each character and that honestly, otherwise, might not have been put into such a grand perspective had it not been for this video. awesomeness at its finest

    I think this video is amazing, but if Rick would react, he would probably say something like this:
    "Wow.... Everything in this video is completely irrelevant and totally bullshit."

    But deepdown he would think this:
    "Oh my god they're f*cking right, how did I not see this?!"

  • Philoso-what?
    Philoso-what? Month ago

    Oh my god, you have it so wrong. Rick sees his love for morty and hates himself for being human and falling for the feeling of love. So he takes his hate for irrationally loving morty out on morty because he hates himself for it.

    I'd disagree that Morty is us. Not because I associate myself with Rick for being super smart, but because when you look at the world it's dominated by Rick's point of view. Rather we're both Rick and Morty. There are parts of us as humans capable of mistreating humanity as pure numbers, not just in terms of science but economics and self. Morty is the innocent part of us that we want to identify with while ignoring the heartless Rick part of us and surrounding us. There in lies the fantasy of why we watch entertainment. When we identify with Rick it's for understanding it all, taking on the cynicism that gives us the high ground. We feel smart yet we've not come up with anything better, we've acknowledged our futility but haven't resolved it. And that's where Rick is at. On the surface finding no meaning but underneath having connections and meaning we can't resolve into the super-understanding we have... For a start.

    FYI there is no such thing as emotional intelligence just because you add the word "intelligent" to something does that make it valid or some kind of science. This is still a great video on the inside of the TV show.

    Our society places less value on emotional intelligence because it is less valuable in almost every measurable way. That's not to say it's worthless (it's very enriching) but emotional intelligence didn't give us fire, the wheel, bronze/steel, writing, the compass, the printing press, radio, transistors, personal computers, the internet, real (evidence based) medicine, space travel... the list goes on.
    Granted we probably wouldn't have lived long enough to do anything with our inventions had we not enjoyed the unseen bastions of emotional intelligence (Morty) supporting the great minds of history (Rick)... but let's not get it twisted. Nostalgic pastoralism is not a way forward at this point and we'd all be better served by evidence based thinking than the, all too subjective, rationalizations of emotional 'genius'. That's just me though....

    Because morty's brainwaves cancel out rick's so the government doesn't come and find kill him. Rick has explains this many times. Extra things yes but morty is mainly just a shield. A toy.

    Rick has massive social intelligence. His lack of morals isn’t because he’s incapable of them, it’s because he doesn’t give a fuck. He’s really not deficient in anything. Anyone in ricks place would be the exact same. Morty has no good qualities over rick
