You might not even know it, but you could be a genius. Are you strange? A nonconformist? A loner? These are just a few sign you could be extremely intelligent.
We all have our quirks, but geniuses are known for their idiosyncrasies.
See if you have the following symptoms of supreme intellect. Perhaps, they describe someone you know?
1. Geniuses are Night Owls
Psychology Today states that intelligent people are more likely to be nocturnal than people with lower IQ scores.
The rates of sleep achieved in hours per night declines as the average IQ level raises. Geniuses come alive once the sun goes down and all the “distractions” go to sleep.
Then, they are free to work undisturbed for hours on end. Are they depressed and lonely all night alone? Hell no! They are filled with ideas and future creations.
2. Experimentation with Alcohol and Drugs.
Some buy over-the-counter pills and others go to their doctor for “the good shit”. That stuff will kill you.
Stephen King got high as hell on Xanax, Valium, cocaine, NyQuil, alcohol, and pot while he wrote.
Edgar Allan Poe was a brilliant drunkard.
Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs all enjoyed tripping on acid to further open their minds.
Highly intelligent people have let go of the religious stories. They are aware of what is going on around them and they see it doesn’t follow the ancient narration.
They can see that there aren’t angels floating above everyone… ever. They have flown in an airplane and saw that on top of the clouds there isn’t a “heaven”.
In fact, there aren’t any deities from any religion, no golden roads, gates or virgins! What a rip off!
Atheists have on average 6 to 7 more IQ points than religious people. Coincidence? Or maybe they know something the masses don’t?
4. Mental Illness.
You don’t have to be insane to be a genius, but it helps.
5. A Genius Enjoys Being Alone.
They need and enjoy alone time to gather their thoughts and dream up new ideas.
Time spent alone is good for the soul. In your alone time, you can meditate, read, write, paint, play an instrument… the list goes on.
Prodigies are famous for the many quirks that outcast them from their peers.
Tesla was afraid of human hair (maybe that’s why he “dated” a pigeon?). Da Vinci was a huge procrastinator with strong ADHD tendencies.
Being strange is just part of the territory.
7. Using “bad words”
I don’t believe in bad words (except for negative words regarding some one’s race or sexual preference). Words are just words, it’s the perspective you have on them that makes them “bad”.
We’ve all been taught that people who cuss are unintelligent and probably lack vocabulary. Au contraire! Scientists have found that the amount of swear words you know is linked to the expression of feelings and thoughts.
The number of cuss words one can name in under a minute correlates with high IQ.
You Can Unleash Your Genius!
Geniuses help others to gain valuable wisdom and creativity. Intelligence can be contagious (so can stupidity) so be aware of who you surround yourself with.
You will gain some free IQ points for having a real mastermind in your life to show you the way.
