7 Signs that you are highly intelligent.

“There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder.”,Ronald Reagan was never mad when he shared his thought with humanity.

Human intelligence has received a blow from the advanced artificial intelligence.But remember the most intelligent humans came up with the AI,so how intelligent is intelligent.

A highly intelligent person is his own guru. They may be inspired by work of others, but one thing they do know well is the fact that by working hard, expanding the horizons of their knowledge and searching for answers, they will be able to find all of the knowledge they seek on their own.


While we all like to believe that we possess high levels of intelligence, deciphering the competence of our brain power can be tricky. Many people turn to IQ Tests, which use tasks to measure various areas of intelligence, including:

  • Short-term memory,
  • Analytical thinking,
  • Mathematical ability,
  • Spatial recognition.

However, there are other subtle qualities highly intelligent people tend to share that aren’t found in test results.

Here are some signs characterising highly intelligent people:

1. Socially awkward

One of the main struggles of being highly intelligent is learning how to behave in common social settings especially that people are quick to assume if somebody is socially awkward. Highly smart people start to overthink everything, from what topics they should bring up next to how people react to their conversation. This makes it impossible for them to relax and go with the flow.

2.Having an insatiable curiosity.

Those with a hungry mind generally have higher levels of intellectual investment and knowledge acquisition over time.

3.Very critical

People who are very intelligent are usually very critical of themselves. They expect criticism from others most of the time, and when it comes to self-reflection, they are extra hard on themselves when acknowledging their own faults.

4. Humor.

According to multiple studies, being inclined to comedy has been linked to having above-average intelligence

5.You tend to be modest.

This is called the Dunning-Kruger effect.

It describes how less competent people often rate their intelligence higher than it actually is, while more competent people rate theirs lower.

That’s why the ignorant people are often over confident, researchers say.

6.You are an older sibling.

Research in 2007 showed older siblings generally have higher IQ scores than their younger brothers and sisters.

Professor Petter Kristensen, from the National Institute of Occupational Health in Oslo, Norway, led the study.

‘We found that second born sons who grew up as eldest (because of death of elder sibling) scored on average similar to biologic first-born,’ Professor Kristensen told MailOnline.

7.Difficulty in falling in love.

Highly intelligent people find it extremely hard to fall in love with someone. They are very cautious and reserved when it comes to meeting new people, and they always think about the pros and cons in an analytical way that usually spells doom for their relationships. Because they are always overthinking situations which come across as being uninterested for their partner.

Intelligence is never genetically inherited,it about you as an individual.
