    Any type that's capable of intelligent thought and ability to express himself succinctly.

    Succinct expression is unnecessary, but yes. I never have witnessed it being type-related nor could I emphasize so far as to what is truly a deep thought from a shallow one. It really depends on the depth the individual assumes is there, since it's ultimately subjective. ie. I'm sure you could eventually form a deep realization using only three words over and over in a particular order, or equally form a deep realization using tacos as the main subject.
