3 Main Reasons Why Intelligent People Can’t Be Truly Happy

June 9, 2017


If you are constantly feeling down and somehow unsatisfied with yourself and your life, don’t worry, it might just mean that you are highly intelligent.

The thing is that some of the most intelligent people and deep thinking individuals out there simply fail to be happy on so many levels.

Ernest Hemingway once said: “happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.”

Let’s see why this is the case.

1. Intelligent People Tend To Have High Standards

Educated personas and people with IQs know what they want in life and don’t ever want to settle for less than what they deserve. This goes for all areas of life:

In other words, they find it more difficult to be satisfied with their achievements, meaningful relationships and almost everything that has to do with the quality of life.

2. Intelligent People Like To Overanalyze Everything

Far too many intelligent people are also hardcore overthinkers. They tend to constantly analyze and over-analyze pretty much everything that is happening to them or people around them.

This can truly be exhausting and downright annoying at times, especially because overthinking is not something they choose. Overthinking chooses them.

3. Intelligent People Are Usually Misunderstood

This one might just be the most crucial one.

Sadly, intelligent people are rarely truly understood by others.

Most of them tend to feel alone and misunderstood, as if no one else is able to comprehend and appreciate their minds and the complexity of their personas.
