@haileyhuber, okay, you clearly have unresolved beef with cheerleaders and are projecting that over society as a stereotype, a form of prejudice. There’s no reward for what you’re thinking unless you make it so, and it would feel just as unaccomplished unless you apply your power. There’s nothing wrong with wanting the simpler pleasures in life, but going to the extreme of avoiding any deep thought like the characters you describe do is pretty close to going to the other extreme of scoffing at anything or anyone somewhat unrelated to constant performace of deep analysis. Lots of scientists, artists, thinkers, philosophers, researchers have french manicures and are married. Lots of things would interfere with deep thought – its up to you to manage your time and values in life. And, it is up to you to choose what would make you happiest. “Normal” lifestyle is pursued because it is common things that make people feel fulfilled and there’s no need to eliminate the basics unless you feel you need to. Its kind of like good food makes you feel well, so people spend more time and effort on it, same with fulfilling employment or relationship, teaching a human mind from scratch, etc. It doesn’t necessarily make people less progressive at their deep thinking, and it has the very real possibility of enriching it.
