Simple explanations never satisfy them. They enjoy reading, art, and exploring other languages and cultures.
They ask thoughtful questions that get to the heart of an issue, spend hours delving into the mines of the internet to explore a new interest, or take things apart simply to see how they work.
Highly intelligent people love to learn. Science backs this up. A recent study found that "how people invest their time and effort in their intellect" plays a huge role in cognitive growth.
But it's not just learning more that makes them smarter, it's wanting to learn more, which is a trait common in intelligent people.
Intelligent people tend to be curious. They know what killed the cat. They have an itch to know more, to drill down on details, just for the sake of knowing. Curiosity is an indicator of intelligence in other animals too.
Smart people don't need a large circle of friends to have a good time. A recent research showed that intelligent people enjoy spending time alone while socializing is more likely to tire them than give them pleasure.
Intelligent people also tend to talk out loud to themselves. This is a sign of advanced intelligence, not madness!
American scientists made a statistic study and found out that the people who live in pedestrian-oriented cities have higher intelligence rates than those who live in cities where transport prevails. The same results were achieved after researching the pedestrian districts of big cities.
A highly intelligent person is one who is flexible in their thinking and can adapt to changes, they think before they speak or act, and they're able to effectively manage their emotions.
Highly intelligent people will often refrain from speaking if they are accessing a situation. They will take some time to think about what was said and prepare an adequate response, and they find silence better than pointless small talk.
