10 unusual habits that indicate a high level of intelligence

By | |

What comes to your mind when we talk about intelligent people? I’m pretty sure it’s an image of someone whose nose is always buried in books, right? Or maybe a professor speaking in front of a class? A scientist looking closely at test tubes?  

That’s perfectly understandable. But did you know that you can tell someone’s highly intelligent through some odd habits they might have? 

In this article, I’ll explore some of these unusual habits that psychologists have uncovered. You’ll see how intelligence shows up in so many interesting ways! 

1) Staying up late

All right, let’s start with the first one – being a night owl. 

Studies now show that people with higher IQs tend to be more nocturnal, preferring the peace and quiet of the nighttime to get their creative juices flowing. 

They do tend to wake up later, but that doesn’t mean they get less done. Not at all. They just get stuff done later – in the evenings, with their peak strength at 9 p.m. 

Apparently, it has something to do with a difference in brain chemistry, and whether you’re an early bird or a night owl is partially predetermined by your genes.  

So, the next time you find yourself wide awake in the wee hours, don’t stress. Just remember that it could be your brilliant brain at work!

2) Having a messy desk

Do you struggle with keeping your desk organized? Is your room a picture of chaos with clothes and books and thingamajigs all strewn around?
