People, did you know that intelligence or smarts can manifest in many different ways? The answer is YES, and sometimes it shows itself in seemingly totally spontaneous manners. And, sometimes, people that are very good in one area of intelligence are lacking in others. For example: a brilliant mathematician may lack an understanding of poetry or abstract art. Or a leading physicist may be extremely socially challenged in a similar sense. But, unfortunately, there are people who are lucky enough to be tapped into many or all of the nuanced forms of intelligence and can function at a uniquely high level of ability in numerous opposing realms. Well yes and these people usually share common traits which others might not even consider connected to their intellectual talents.
- These people are never hasty.
Yes, you got that right! These people will always take as much time and energy as they need to deeply and genuinely consider what they want to say before they say it. This is very important for you to remember – these people will also take into account whether it is kind or socially acceptable, whether it is necessary or will add anything to the conversation, and whether or not they feel ready to confront the possible reactions to it.
- These people are people of action (not words).
How we usually react to problems? Well, that’s easy to answer – by sitting around and trying to think our way out of it. But, you’ll be amazed when we tell you that highly intelligent people know better than to get paralyzed in thought. Their motto is – sometimes, you’ve got to take the risk and act, or you’ll be immobilized permanently. And remember – no good can come of sitting there and obsessing over your problem. Yes, you should make a plan of action and follow through with it in order to have any hope of progressing.
- These people don’t need your confirmation.
When someone is judging you, they just reveal what type of person they are. So, do you worry when someone is judging you? Yes?! No? You should know that highly intelligent people don’t worry about judgment or what others are saying about them. They do what feels right and important to them and they don’t bother letting others shame them for it. Yes, intelligent people will take into consideration the thoughts of those they greatly admire and respect, and if they think they’re being called out on something they deserve to be called out on, they won’t deny it, but overall their validation comes from within. They simply have more productive things to do than chase the approval of their peers.
- Everyone is capable of being wrong (including themselves)! Yes, they know that!
Yes, intelligent people know the fact that they can be wrong. They will always admit when they’re wrong or they’ve made a mistake. You don’t grow to be wise or well-educated if you can’t accept being incorrect. And remember – you can respect someone greatly for many things and still believe it when they mess up.
- These people are always objective!
Highly intelligent people always have a different perspective on things, instead of being emotional about it and telling a person they’re just wrong. It’s not about winning or losing the argument, it’s about helping the other person to understand things in a different, perhaps better or clearer way.
- They don’t let emotions control them.
Highly intelligent people will always do whatever they can to stay calm and clear-headed. Why – well, that’s easy to answer! It’s because when you allow their emotions and personal bias to inform their speech and behavior, they usually suffer. Communication just doesn’t happen the way it should and everyone ends up angry or upset. So, you should try and stay relaxed, try not to take anything personally and always rely on facts and logic. These are the best way to find a good solution or compromise to any difficult situation.
- Sometimes, these people rely on intuition.
Well, this may sound weird to you, but sometimes the best thing you can do is trust your instincts. Intelligent people know that human beings once relied entirely on their gut for survival, and though we’ve long since evolved past that, our physical feelings can still give us some useful hints for life now. And, one last thing – you should never deny your instincts. Your instincts are there for a good reason. Thank you for your time and share your thoughts in the comment section below.
