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.
Here is a list of signs you might have ignored or even considered weird. That indicates 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.
1. You wear the same clothes every day.
Have you ever noticed Steve Jobs of Apple used to appear in public in the same outfit all the time, we don't think he didn't have enough money to style up his wardrobe? A more likely explanation for sticking to the same fashion routine is being a genius. Psychologist Oliver Berkman has done some serious research on the lifestyle of the brightest minds in the world. He concluded that smart people tend to save up their mental abilities for more important things. Unless those smart people are fashion designers or Lady Gaga. So next time you see your geeky colleague, don't blame him for that grey turtleneck he is wearing every day.
2. You can feel what others are thinking.
Do you know that feeling, when you're talking to someone and they can't find the right word or just postponing finishing the sentence, and you do it for them? 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 Daniel Coleman, people who care a lot about others and can feel them well generally succeed in life. Feeling the pain of others helps you understand life better, so you can excel at living. You can even learn from the mistakes of others.
3. You can perfectly control yourself.
The ability to control instincts is what we know distinguishes humans from animals. Genius people go even further, they manage to overcome and control any impulses they have. A group of scientists from Yale Princeton and the University of Minnesota 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 who preferred waiting and getting more money later had better scores on intelligence, 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.
4. You talk to yourself.
You've got to be kidding me. I always thought they're talking to yourself as a sign of madness, not genius. It turns out it's just the opposite. Psychologists Daniel sweetly and Gary lumpia conducted a whole study on it. Good self-talk according to them, helps us sort the important thoughts from useless stuff going through our minds. It's a way of singling out ideas. Some of them might be a genius. listening to your voice helps you understand yourself better. Maybe it was speaking to oneself that helped Albert Einstein become one of the brightest minds of all time. Yes, it turns out mine Stein used to repeat his lines to himself.
5. Your handwriting is messy.
Well, next time somebody criticizes your handwriting you can defend yourself with this. Messy writing is one of the signs of a genius. The creative disorder is a concept that was established long ago. There is even research that claims that it serves as kind of a fuel for those with a creative nature. The result of this research carried out by Kathleen Bose and her team was published in a psychological science journal. Messy handwriting is also one of the signs of a creative person.
Did you recognize any of these signs in yourself?. Feel free to share it in the comment section.
