Lol. Yeah, you are so right. You know what they say
Q] "what is an artist? "
A] " an artist is someone who actually does art"

Hey, that doesn't always work.

Q] "What is a thinker?"
A] "Someone who talks."

You seem to be under the impression that the words "think" and "talk" can be used synonymously.
Quite the opposite.
That's why I say the name "thinker" isn't very apropros
If the person is thinking of things that matter, they tend to do something with them that matters, as opposed to broadcasting them into the void or narrowcasting them to their followers.

I.e. Ayn Rand, armchair discordians, etc. are all "thinkers".
MLK was an activist
Chuck Tingle is an artist
and so on and so forth.

Or maybe I'm just talking too much to get it right

I think your error is in trying to assume a definition that nobody uses.

Or at least, that not everybody uses. I completely have no idea why anyone would define a thinker as someone who talks.

I was trying to make a shitty joke about intellectualism but I didn't think it through and committed to it too hard.

There's a Socrates joke there somewhere. Talking while you think is... an unpopular method.
You can't get out backward.  You have to go forward to go back.. better press on! - Willie Wonka, PBUH

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

"Ayn Rand never swung a hammer in her life and had serious dominance issues" - The Fountainhead

"World domination is such an ugly phrase. I prefer to call it world optimisation."

Are only "transformative thoughts" thought? What constitutes a "transformative thought"?

The man pitfall of trying to sound deep is that 99.9% of the time people come off sounding like Jack Handy without the funny.
