Intelligent People

If your parents scolded you for cursing when you were little, had to tell you at least twice a week to clean your room, and had to force you to bed each night, you might be in luck as this behavior has now been linked to people with high IQ.

Night Owls Are Not What They Seem

Having troubles falling asleep early each night? Don’t fret, this could mean you are smart.

Recent scientific research has linked night owls with higher IQ scores, so if you like to stay up late, you are likely to be in the company of the following people:

  • President Obama,
  • Charles Darwin,
  • Winston Churchill,
  • Keith Richards,
  • Elvis Presley…

All these famous people are known to be nocturnal animals and have high IQs.

Bad Language IS In fact Good

Do you swear a lot? No worries. You might be smart!

According to “ Recent study showed that people who could name the most swear words within a minute also tend to score higher on an IQ test.

The study concludes that a rich vocabulary of swear words is a sign of rhetorical strength rather than the attempt to hide verbal deficits.”


Embracing The Messiness

Add being messy to this list, and you are a lock for high intelligence.

A study conducted by the University of Minnesota suggests that messiness in people is a sign of high IQ. It seems that people who don’t like to spend much time cleaning and organizing everything around them, but instead tend to focus on creativity, are indeed potential geniuses.

The study shows that a messy environment leads to a more creative workflow.

Psychological scientist Kathleen Vohs had this to say: “Disorderly environments seem to inspire breaking free of tradition, which can produce fresh insights. Orderly environments, in contrast, encourage convention and playing it safe.”
