These Traits Are Typical For Intelligent people — And You?
Are you a hopeless slob? This could indicate your superior intelligence. In our society, these three characteristics are actually not particularly positive. But they could mean that you are particularly intelligent.
Do you also have these three qualities that are not always useful in society and at work and are sometimes even interpreted negatively? Don’t fret: many outstanding personalities also had these qualities. And it could mean you’re smarter than the rest.

Do you also live in your personal orderly chaos? A University of Minnesota study shows that cluttered desks can be a sign that a genius is at work. After all, if you have big and important things rolling around in your head, you don’t have time to try to get things in order.
However, clutter alone is far from being a sign of superior intelligence — there are two other characteristics as well.
Intelligent People Stay Up Late at Night
Psychology Today writes that people who are up late at night are the more intelligent. Are you a morning person, i.e. a lark, or does your energy only flow in the evening and at night, like an owl?
Elvis Presley, Winston Churchill, Barack Obama, Charles Darwin — all of them are known to have been or are nocturnal. So if you’re grumpy in the mornings and can work your best at night, that could be an indication of your intellect.
Intelligent People Curse Creatively
As a child, you were most likely taught not to put swear words in your mouth. In fact, a study shows that people who could name the most swear words in one minute also did better in the intelligence tests. A rich vocabulary of swear words is not a sign of stupidity, but rather of healthy verbal skills.
Many gifted people believe that they will not achieve anything and they are overly self-critical. They tend to downplay successes rather than be proud of them Do you find this true? Share in comments!
