Intelligence or IQ actually means the pace at which a person adopts new information.
What are the most common characteristics of intelligent people?
Scientific studies have shown that IQ is formed at an early age, so — you are stuck with what you mastered in early childhood, writes “Business Insider”.
Although many studies have shown that IQ is not the only measure of success in life (on the contrary, as people say, college and work are not done by a smart head, but a butt sitting working or studying), high IQ is still something everyone would like to praise.
Research has shown that there are still some signs and characteristics that could indicate whether a person is above average intelligence.
Here are some of the features:
Psychiatrist Jeremy Coplan studied patients with anxiety disorders and found that those with the most severe symptoms scored more IQ than those with milder symptoms. Other studies have found that anxious people have better verbal skills and that their minds are more active.
Also, an experiment at the Israeli “Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya” showed that anxious people are more successful in solving complicated problems.
Research has shown that left-handedness is associated with divergent thinking (a creative way of solving a problem or multiple solutions to one problem).
Numerous studies have shown a connection between musicality and good verbal skills, as well as executive functions crucial for focusing and self-control. The experiment conducted by Silvain Moreno involved 48 children aged four to six.
Half of the students finished the music program, and the other half completed the art culture program. At the end of the experiment, 90% of children who underwent music training showed an improvement in verbal IQ.
Research shows a strong connection between a sense of humor and high verbal skills, as well as abstract thinking. Humor is mostly the result of high intelligence because it requires a specific type of thinking and manipulating words.
