Hey lookie here ten signs that're more intelligent than you realize
We all have those moments we're feeling low and start doubting our abilities
It starts back at school when you just can't get math
Thumbs up if you can relate like me and might come back when you're an adult
Bright side has some good news
You are way more intelligent than you realize so here is a list of signs
That you might have ignored or even considered weird that indicate a super bright mind
They are all scientifically proved so if you feel like a few of them are true for you
You have every reason to call yourself a genius
Counting down from number 10 you realize how much you don't know
Contradictory as it may sound a true genius easily admits how much he still doesn't know
You can be naturally great at making words
Rhyme, or have a musical talent the size of a vaulting
but fail at physics more than that you must definitely have some concepts to explore
Professional field if you can honestly say I don't know instead of mumbling oh, yeah
I have an idea of how it functions and then googling the conversation topic like crazy
It shows you are an intelligent person this idea is backed up by science
Justin Kruger and David Denning worked with a group of Cornell University
undergrads and published the results in their research in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology in
1999 they asked students to predict their scores after being tested in humor logical reasoning and English grammar
Those who were 100 percent sure they did outstandingly well ended up with worse results than those who were more critical of themselves
Number nine you wear the same clothes every day
Have you ever noticed Mark Zuckerberg tends to appear in public in the same grade t-shirt all the time

It's not like you're psychic, but there are some signs of it
Do you know that feeling when you're talking to someone?

If you do you might be a genius
Empathy is a sign of exceptional mental intelligence. If you are emotionally intelligent you love meeting new people and learning new things
according to psychologist and author of focus the hidden drivers of excellence daniel coleman
People who care a lot about others and can feel them well generally succeed in life
Literally feeling the pain of others helps you understand life better
So you can excel at living it you can even learn from the mistakes of others not your own
Genius isn't it?
Number seven you can perfectly control yourself
The ability to control instincts is what we know distinguishes humans from animals
Genius people went even further they managed to overcome and control any impulses
They have if you can plan and achieve goals without being distracted by emotions. You are more intelligent than you might
You can even avoid getting in trouble by predicting the possible outcomes of this or that action a group of scientists from Yale
Princeton the University of Minnesota and other educational institutions tested a group of people in 2008
They offered the participants of the experiment to choose from being paid immediately or get money later
Those are preferred waiting and getting more money later had better scores on
Intelligence tests it showed that people who are not afraid and can control their actions including spending their money are more
Intelligent than those who find it hard to plan anything
Number 6 your eyes are blue
Blue eyes look deep and sincere and sometimes piercing just think of Elsa from frozen ah
Let it go. Will ya
There is more to them than that cold beauty and American scientists have been long interested in their nature
Many of them believe blue eyes are a sign of natural super intelligence
professor emeritus of the University of Louisville
Joanne Rowe has concluded light eyed humans and even animals are way better at activities requiring
self-pacing than the dark eyed creatures
The fact that you are better at self paced activities means that you like paying attention to every detail
Aren't those qualities important for work with words and numbers if you have dark eyes

Because your reaction is super developed plus. We still have a lot of genius signs you'll find yourself in
Like this one number five you are a chocolate. Lover. Yeah, that's me

consumed in certain countries
And he found it
Switzerland land of chocolate and cheese has not surprisingly taken a very high position in this rating
Sweden Denmark and Norway are not doing bad either even though many people find the results of this study very disputable
We still like to believe because we love chocolate so much more than that
Chocolate is known to stimulate your mental activity
And if you love it and have it in healthy amounts it will not do you any bad?
Hey, remember what Mae West said too much of a good thing can be wonderful. I'm sure she was talking about chocolate
Number four when you're upset you know what's bothering you
We all have those days when everything seems to upset us
Coffee doesn't taste that good the shining Sun is annoying and if people are asking you what's wrong
You only want to yell back at them even genius people get upset at times a lot in fact
But they know exactly what's bothering them
It gives them an opportunity to solve the problem and move on
Yes, genius people don't stick to the past and they don't blame everyone and everything around for their sadness

but also
recognizes emotions when he feels them and not ignores them a mind free of constantly bothering emotions and anger will more likely
generate something outstanding

It's just the opposite
