    This achievement requires you to ask the computer to allow you to manually 'skip' when the time comes, instead of letting the computer do it for you.

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    However, the only way to unlock this dialogue option is to have a BELOW AVERAGE (or Minimum) Intelligence attribute, so as to unlock the 'Dumb' dialogue options. The only way to alter attributes is through character creation, flaws, and certain consumables/debuffs.

    **Edit: I have been informed that sleep deprivation in Supernova as well as drug withdrawal lowers all attributes, including the necessary attribute for this achievement, so it is possible to get this achievement with higher Intelligence as long as you've got the necessary requirements before you begin talking to A.D.A.
    Thanks to the commenters for pointing this out.

    The only ways to get this achievement are:
    -- Create a Character with Below Average Intelligence
    -- Create a Character with any other Intelligence and then, though the course of gameplay, perform as many of the following actions as necessary:
    ---- Accept the "Permanently Concussed" flaw, which lowers the mind attributes by 1
    ---- Suffer from drug withdrawal to lower all attributes by one (stacks)
    ---- If on Supernova difficulty, suffer from sleep deprivation

    so it is possible to get this achievement with higher Intelligence as long as you've got the necessary requirements before you begin talking to A.D.A.
    Umm, not sure where you got this from but I just went back to the Unreliable and spent 500 joy to redo all my stats... I maxed out science and I have the highest Intelegance... When talking to AVA it allowed me to manually skip the Hope. But it just successfully skipped to the correct destination. So it is NOT possible to get this achievement trying it this way.

    QwrtyMan You simply misread my sentence. If you have higher intelligence, you can get the achievement as long as you have the required items to lower your intelligence (Adrena-time, sleep deprivation, etc.). It is not required to make a dumb character from the start.

    Lvx Can confirm that just stacking Adrena-Time a few times until your intelligence is below average works.
