Signs of high intelligence, There are some methods to assess your intelligence. The most known are IQ tests. However, while this has to do with default learning styles, it’s not sufficient. IQ tests describe your learning speed using conventional methods, thus following a very specific schedule based on predefined learning rules.
- An intelligent person will be logical in everything. He/she will think twice before speaking a single word.
- They write down their personal and professional goals to stay on track all the time. Written goals help a person to see how they are doing in life, where they are going. Goals are like a reminder; they keep telling you what you supposed to do, what you want from life.
- Intelligent people find what they love to do, what they want to be in life. They do not waste years living in someone else’s life. They figure out their strength, interest, and passion for making their experience enjoyable.
- Smart people make choices in their life. They choose love, health, wealth, and happiness because you got to choose what you want in life; those things will automatically attract you. Smart people become CEO of their life instead of going through as a passenger.
- They tend to have a small circle of friends, and they do not keep fake friends around them just for any reason, like for sex, money, and personal support when needed. The smarter you are, the more selective you become in choosing people around you.
- They try to avoid conflicts and understand that there is always a difference in opinions among people. Everyone thinks differently; that does not mean that they are wrong. Intelligent people listen to understand not to respond without understanding other people’s opinions. There is a famous quote from Mr. Jet Li, “Sometimes I just agree with people so that they can stop talking.”
- Intelligent people enjoy being alone, spend time with themselves, love to talk with themselves. They consistently give time to themselves to think about everything running around them, such as carrier, self-improvement, affairs, personal and professional life.
- They always find solutions when any problem comes in their life while others make excuses. There is a psychology that wherever you put your focus attracts towards you, that’s why they focus on solutions, not explanations and problems. They take troubles as blessings because people learn from bad experiences. Remember, there are no real failures in life only results, and there are no tragedies, just only lessons.
- Intelligent people never stop learning. They keep learning in their lives by reading, listening to other people’s experiences, and personal experiences. They try to learn from other people’s mistakes rather than making themselves because it is much cheaper that way. For example, Bill Gates reads 50 books a year, and Warren Buffet reads 500 pages a day, Mark Cuban reads 3 hours a day. 12 Signs
- Smart People never complain in any situation, no matter how problematic the case is because everything happens for a reason in life. People come to know years later about the real purpose of happening something wrong in life, such as ‘Steve Jobs was fired from his own company (Apple) at the age of 30, he was so pissed off how come one gets fired from his own made company. But he came to know the real reason behind that after a few years when he made another two different successful companies.

- Intelligent persons concentrate on what they do well, what they have done well and achieved rather than focus on what they do not do well.
- These people make good habits like eating a healthy diet, exercise about three days a week, reading daily, helping others as much as possible, keep looking at goals to stay on track. They practice an action habit because the path is made by walking, not thinking.
