Did you know that if you’re a night owl, you may be highly intelligent?
No, really… you might. Staying up late is apparently a common trait of smart people.
Really, though… I wouldn’t take one trait and base my assessment of someone’s (or my own) intelligence on it. But there are more of these supposedly smart-people characteristics.
Being disorganized is also common. I’ve heard this before. I guess it makes me feel good about the number of areas in my home that really need some organization. Even though the clutter annoys me.
Procrastination is another one. Well… god knows I procrastinate. I sat down with my laptop to work on my A-to-Z posts… and I’m writing this. So… yeah.
I love this one! Highly intelligent people know there’s no such thing as luck. I’ve posted about this before and everything. Luck is not a thing. And you sure as fuck can’t ‘make your own luck’. That has got to be one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard in my life.
Confidence… I don’t have much. Or any. Apparently, smart people are not overly confident. They’re probably not as far in the other direction as I am, though.
In a better world, open-minded would apply to everyone, not just ‘highly intelligent‘ people. But for purposes of this post… yes. Open-minded.
Smarty-pants types also have a great sense of humor. I think I do. Others have told me I do. It must be true, right? I have to have a great sense of humor because I couldn’t survive without it. How else would I deal with all the shit that goes wrong in my life? I need humor… or I wouldn’t make it.
This last fact* is my favorite of them all. Are you ready for this? I wasn’t.
Highly intelligent people use curse words. I wonder if this a case of the more you do it, the smarter you are? I don’t know but I am sooo using this explanation the next time I slip in front of Mom.
Anyway… I don’t mean to brag, but I guess I am kind of bragging… because all of these do seem to apply to me…
I must be a fucking genius.
