9 Signs That You are a Highly Intelligent Person.

Intelligence is not just about IQ scores. A single test can’t give a clear picture of intelligence. There are other factors to consider. Here are some signs that you might be a smart person:

1. You’re Creative

Creativity is the ability to come up with new and different ideas. And it is a definitive sign of intelligence because it requires thinking outside the box. Creativity is its own brand of smart.

2. You Value Solitude

Whether you're an introvert or extrovert person, intelligence typically involves spending time in your own head. That's why finding peace in your own company can suggest intelligence. Without great solitude, no serious work is possible.

3. You're Curious

Simple explanations never satisfy you. You enjoy reading and exploring. When you want answers to your questions, you go looking for them. So, you continue learning; if you love to learn, the more you'll learn and the smarter you'll get.

4. You Worry a lot

People tend to look at anxiety as a negative trait, but the essential function of anxiety is recognizing and responding to danger. This worry might involve brainstorming plans to handle the situation or thinking of ways to avoid trouble.

5. You Observe

Noticing what happens around you can suggest intelligence. Observing can relate to different types of intelligence: Naturalist intelligence, Spatial-visual intelligence and Verbal-linguistic intelligence.

6. You are Funny

Albert Einstein attributed his brilliant mind to having a child-like sense of humor. Researchers discovered that funny people have higher IQs than their less funny peers.

7. You have a Talent for Keeping the Peace

Getting along well with others and problems may not automatically translate to academic genius; however, most would agree it’s a useful form of intelligence. Robert Kiyosaki says, Intelligence is the ability to solve the problems.

8. You are Empathetic

You have the ability to experience things from someone else’s perspective. People with high emotional intelligence generally have a pretty good awareness of what others think and feel.

9. You are Open Minded.

Smart people don't close themselves off to new ideas or opportunities. Highly intelligent people tend to stay open-minded to others' points of view, making them confident about their opinion once formed and less likely to be manipulated.

The fool don't think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool. If you’re not too sure about your own intellect, it actually might be an indication that you’re pretty intelligent, thoughtful enough to realize your limitations.
