Are you one of the highly intelligent people?
Almost all of us want to be a genius. This is because we think that to be a highly intelligent person makes everything easy.
For instance, if you are a very smart student, you don’t have to study hard in school. Even without exerting too much effort, you’ll still be able to pass all of your subjects.
But intelligent people are not perfect. They too suffer difficulties that most of the average people experience. Albert Einstein, for example, experienced relationship conflict because he almost had no time with her wife and children.
The life of smart people can be harder than ordinary people. The following examples speak about the reality of being highly intelligent.
1. Highly intelligent people “don’t like small talk”.
Because they are intelligent, they like big ideas. As a result, they don’t like gossips. But most of the time such behavior may be misinterpreted by other people as uninterested.
2. Highly intelligent people “think more than they speak”.
Intelligent people are “deep thinker”. They love analyzing things than speaking about what is happening.
3. Highly intelligent people “get bored easily”.
Most intelligent people get bored easily. Albert Einstein wasn’t the best student in his younger years. Why? Because probably he was gotten bored easily. Imagine that you already knew what your teacher is talking in the class, would you still be interested in the lesson?
4. Highly intelligent people “suffer from paralysis by analysis”.
Smart people don’t just make an instant decision. Every move is calculated making sure that everything works perfectly. But this behavior can cause delays. As a result, smart people are sometimes regarded as lazy.
5. Highly intelligent people “find it hard to make friends”.
Because highly intelligent people don’t like small talk, they find it hard to connect with other people.
6. Highly intelligent people “have difficulty in finding love”.
Smart people are often misunderstood due to their unique characteristics. And because of their behavior, only a few people might be interested in them.
7. Highly intelligent people “don’t have fun”.
Because highly intelligent people are always looking for ideas that ignite their interest, they don’t find funny small things hilarious as what average people do.
8. Highly intelligent people’s “mistakes are more noticeable than others”.
In most cases, we believe that smart people don’t commit mistakes. But in reality, they too. The only difference is that their mistakes often draw attention which can cause them stress.
9. Highly intelligent people “are under pressure to succeed”.
Smart people believe that they can do almost anything. They tend to be a perfectionist. But when they failed, they may feel angry at themselves. So they are stressed trying to succeed at anything.
