- Signs you’re highly intelligent without realising it
Intelligence isn’t determined by high marks or being an expert in Science. It goes far beyond just scoring a 100% in subjects or research. In fact, people who can think and act flexibly, manage their emotions and be mature in all kinds of situations can call themselves ‘intelligent.’ But surprisingly, such people rarely realize how intelligent they actually are. If you’re looking to figure out whether you fall into that category, here are some signs you’re highly intelligent even if you don’t feel like it.
- Empathy and compassion
The more empathetic a person is, the higher they will be able to communicate effectively. Good communication skills award you as a highly emotionally intelligent person who can discuss and even solve problems in any situation. If you analyse situations from a kind and compassionate perspective, you are more likely to lead with your heart and mind.
- Utmost curiosity
If you’re curious about everything that goes around you and in the world, you’re an intelligent buddy. Asking questions and wondering about how everything works around you isn’t being too inquisitive but observant and intelligent enough to learn more. Knowledge comes from eagerness to learn and know more and being curious is just a part of it.
Having a hold over your emotions or impulsive decisions radiate maturity. If you don’t react to situations quickly and take your time to analyse them before arriving at a decision is a sign you’re intelligent. It’s all because you think before you act.
- Good memory
A good working memory goes hand-in-hand with an intelligent mind. If you have a good memory, you should also be able to unlock your functioning, acute focus and attention skills which helps you gain flexibility in transitioning from one situation to another.
- Going with the flow
You aren’t in a rush to succeed, like everyone else. You would rather prefer taking your time and going with the flow. You like to embrace change with an open mind. In fact, you dislike rigidity in life because it restricts you from learning and growing. You are always ready to accept anything life throws at you. That marks your true intelligence.
