12 Factors That Indicates You’re a Smart Person

Stupid people tend to overestimate their competence, while smart people tend to sell themselves short. As Shakespeare put it in “As You Like It“: “The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”

That conventional wisdom is backed up by a Cornell University study conducted by David Dunning and Justin Kruger. The phenomenon is now known as the Dunning-Kruger effect.

So, if you’re not too sure about your own intellect, it actually might be a indication that you’re pretty intelligent — thoughtful enough to realise your limitations, at least.

How will you know if someone’s smart or just average? Educationalists say it’s quite impossible to judge a person without an IQ Test, but psychologists say that there are yet some ways to find that out generally. As there’s no machine out there to scale the intelligence, some points have been noted by psychologists who can tell us in a fat round factor about the smartness of the person.

In other words, the smartest choice one ever makes is to seek out clever people in your work relationships. Just to be clear, I don’t mean those who think they’re intelligent but do dumb things. I mean the real deal. Since we don’t have smart meters built into our foreheads, here’s how to tell if someone’s clever person, starting with the obvious:

  1. A high confidence level indicates your smartness level.
  2. Taking precautions
  3. Learning from mistakes
  4. Right Decisions
  5. You prefer giving replies through work rather than words.
  6. You ignore stupid people and stupid thoughts around you
  7. You love people who criticize you.
  8. You dare to watch DREAMS !!
  9. You are punctual.
  10. You are humorous.
  11. You like to stay fit.
  12. You love to stay updated.
