A scientific study has discovered that intelligent people have easily identifiable characteristics.
Do you or others notice that you swear more than other people?
Do people often complain about the mess you leave everywhere?
Do you always stay up late?
Well, scientists have found that there may be more to your behavior that just bad habits.
Intelligent people use more curse words.
You always hear that people who swear have a "limited vocabulary". But those who don't use any swear words are the ones who limit their own vocabulary because they intentionally use fewer words than others.
Psychologists Kristin Jay of Marist College and Timothy Jay of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts are the ones responsible for the recent study.
"People who use taboo words understand their general expressive content as well as nuanced distinctions that must be drawn out to use slurs appropriately. The ability to make nuanced distinctions indicates the presence of more rather than less linguistic knowledge."
Smart People Go to Bed Late.
President Obama, Charles Darwin, Winston Churchill, Keith Richards and Elvis Presley are all famous for nocturnal activities. If you tend to go to sleep rather late, you're definitely in good company.
Research studies have found that those people who have the highest IQs are usually those who are most active in the evening. The study found that many individuals with less than 75 would go to be around midnight while the higher IQ, over 125 would end up going to bed later at around 1 AM.
Smart People Are Messy People.
Next time somebody complains about your messy home or desk, what you have to do is keep in mind that it’s a characteristic of a smart individual.
A study by the University of Minnesota suggests, that the messy desk of individuals is actually linked to their intelligence. If you don't spend much time cleaning and organizing everything around you, your mind is obviously occupied with more important stuff.
So if you enjoy swearing in your messy room while staying up late, it's a sign of your higher IQ!
Being put on the spot makes it harder for us to define our boundaries. In our attempts to appease the person giving us their attention, we agree to things without meaning to.
But failure to have boundaries lets other people force us into situations that make us resent them. As long as you think having boundaries makes you rude, the wrong people will continue to put demands on you and you will end up resenting them.
You also need to stop equating having boundaries with lack of compassion. Instead, see it as a way to have self-respect. After all, you wouldn’t go around imposing responsibilities on people if it would make them uncomfortable.
Before anyone can respect you, you have to respect yourself first.
So, don’t be in a rush to give a response the next time someone asks you for a favor. Take your time and think it over and then give an answer you will not regret.
It’s okay to be honest about what’s not okay and what is.
