11 undeniable signs you’re a clever person

By | |

Intelligence is a highly valued trait in society. 

We see these in movies, books, and other media. The famous Sherlock Holmes has had different adaptations featuring his cleverness and brilliant deduction skills. 

But contrary to popular belief, clever people are usually in the shadows—unnoticed, unseen, and inconspicuous—and you might actually be one of them!

Here’s a list of ten undeniable signs you’re a clever person (and smarter than most people think)!

1) You make the people around you feel smarter

We commonly think that smart people make the people around them feel stupid, because they know so many things that a lot of people don’t know about.

And this might come as a surprise, because it’s actually quite the opposite. 

If you’re a smart person, you know not to gatekeep knowledge. More often than not, you actually willingly share it. 

You can explain big, complicated concepts and turn them into chunks of information that are easier to understand for everybody. Think: Hank Green and his science TikToks. 

This is something that can be a little hard to understand when you’re young. When your IQ is above a certain level, it’s easy to think that everybody else is stupid. 

But growing older also means that you’ve learned to grow out of this arrogance

2) You’re not arrogant

A lot of “smart” people are arrogant. 

However, these types of people are usually a lot less smart than they think they are—but you’re not one of them.

As a truly smart person, you don’t think you’re better than everyone else just because you happen to know more than them. In fact, you’re probably smart enough to know you’re not better than everyone. 

And, more importantly, you don’t pretend to know everything. 

You know that admitting your lack of knowledge is better than pretending you know something that you don’t; that the latter can actually make you look stupid.
