Signs Of Intelligence That You Possess, But You Probably Didn't Know

Are You A Genius ?

Have you ever wondered what geniuses have in common? A number of experiments have been conducted to find that out and some peculiar behaviors have been observed among people with high IQ. How anyone turns out to be is due to their genetics. So genetics of geniuses definitely differ from “not so genius” ordinary people, but these brainy people do have similarities in their genetics that leads most of them to possess similar qualities. How would you recognize a genius if you come across one?

Well, science answers to that. Read the list below and you will know if you or someone you know, have got more brains than average, because geniuses commonly have more than one of the following signs.

1. They Don’t Lose Their Virginity To Just Anybody!

A study conducted among students of top universities has found out that the number of sexual partners per students were lower as compared to the average control group – a group with which the results of an experiment are compared. Same results have been found in both U.K and the U.S. It is especially true for men. So you question how is having less sexual partners related to higher IQ?

One quality geniuses have is they don’t follow the rules, they tend to deviate from the path designed by evolution. Men tend to be polygamous, so they can pass on their genes to maximum offspring, but that is an evolutionary norm.  Men who go against that are more intelligent. Another reason that links monogamy and high intelligence in men is that the male hormone testosterone tends to inhibit intelligence and increases the libido, so when there is less testosterone, it will not only result in monogamy or even asexuality, but also a higher IQ.

By the way, do you know Newton never got married? And, neither did Nicola Tesla and Leonardo da Vinci! Darwin had an amazingly close relationship with his wife Emma, which is thought of as more like a ‘son-mother’ than ‘wife-husband’ closeness!

2. High Sex Drive

A sex toy retailer in U.K , Lovehoney, after analyzing their sales data found that the students from top universities buy more of their products than students from other universities. Cambridge and Oxford came first with students spending $14,600 on sex toys, compared to students of Surrey and Loughborough, who spent less than $4900.

The conclusion of this study is somewhat contradictory to the first one, but it can also explain why monogamy is preferred over polygamy by more intelligent men, compared to their intellectual and professional life, they don’t want to spend more time, resources or energy having kids (Another divergence from evolutionary trend, our ancestors spent less time on unnecessary activities like learning, investigating and discovering and more time reproducing), they satisfy their libido using personal pleasure products.

When such individuals who refrain from sexual interactions even with a high libido enter a relationship with someone who meets their both emotional and physical requirements, tend to form a strong bond with that person, thus leading to a monogamous relationship. Another correlation that shows relation between a high IQ and less sex is the difference in the number of offspring they have, both men and women with high IQ tend to have lesser number of kids than their less intelligent counterparts. It can also be seen in birth rates of different countries, poor countries with less health and education facilities (thus on average low IQ) have higher birth rate than the developed countries with on average higher IQ.

3. Sorry, We’re Not Social Type

More intelligent people don’t do well socially. Geniuses just don’t feel understood by people, so they withdraw themselves from society. Their interests and priorities are usually different from those of their peers, colleagues and even family members that makes them act distant. Sometimes, you will see a person talking absolute non-sense with confidence, on the other hand, you might meet a person, who talks once in a month, but when talks s/he talks you will be surprised at what an amazing thing s/he said. That’s the difference between a genius and an average person, genius thinks before speaking and most people don’t, but what does that have to do with being socially poor?

Geniuses probably think too much, s/he will consider all the effects and consequences of a thing s/he wants to say, like what will this person think if I say this?. Will this make sound stupid? This person might think I’m trying to act too smart and on and on and on. Besides, social interaction might just be too boring for them, as compared to their own activities. Some geniuses might even become arrogant, not interacting with people they think can’t reach their mental level and may even develop anti-social personality. Darwin probably suffered from social anxiety disorder and there were times when the famous physicist Galileo offended people.

4. Yay, This Is My Thing!

As geniuses like to experience new stuffs, they are more likely to plunge in an ocean of drugs and become addicts than less intelligent people. A study revealed that they are more likely to take illegal drugs like marijuana, ecstasy, amphetamines and heroin.

5. Sleep Is Too Boring

If you like to stay up all night because you cannot sleep without completing a Nicolas Spark’s novel, welcome to the genius club. Evolution has shaped us to work during the day and rest at night, but apparently it doesn’t matter to brainiac. People with bipolar disorder that’s associated with heightened creativity sleep less when in their manic phase. A research says that insomnia is associated with a higher IQ, the need to sleep per hour in night decreases as intelligent increases. No wonder why Nicola Tesla never slept more than 2 hours a night!

6. Even the Eye Color Matters!

Blue eyed people on average excel better at self-pacing activities like academics and are better strategic thinkers, but that doesn’t mean people with other eye colors are always less intelligent. Brown eyed people on average tend to do better at quick response based activities like sports. But don’t worry brown eyed people, as a research states you are perceived more trustworthy than your blue eyed counterparts.

7. Alcoholism – Just Feels Good

Just like drugs drinking alcohol is a novel task as our ancestors weren’t too fond of Alcohol. An experiment done in U.K. shows that brilliant students have more tendency to become alcoholic.

8. Artistic Abilities and Boundless Imagination

Whether it’s the magic world of Harry Potter that captured minds of thousands or Johnny Depp making you think Jack Sparrow really exists or incredible talent of Mozart or Da Vinci’s Eternal Mona Lisa, geniuses express themselves in way world can understand them. The ability of projecting your thoughts or expression into the world, requires a mind more developed than average. People with high IQs tend to share their thoughts in a way everyone finds understandable and pleasing like poetry, writing, music etc.

9. Atheism – We don’t confess

Researchers say that on average atheists are on average 6/7 points higher than non-atheists. Belief in God has been advantageous throughout evolution, so geniuses often break this trend too. The poorest countries with less education, less IQ (most of which follow rules our ancestors laid foundation of), tend to more religious. Among 137 countries in a study, only 23 had more than 20% atheists, which are all higher IQ countries.

10. Liberalism – Don’t Poke Your Nose in My Business

A research concludes that people who are very liberal in early adolescence have a mean IQ of 106.4 while those with very conservative views have a mean IQ of 94.8. This, as everything else in geniuses, is because they like to challenge evolution, our ancestors valued their own families or individual with more genetic, cultural and geographic similarities as them, while did not share their resources to genetically distinct individuals, interbreeding was not common, thus leading to a conservative approach to protect one’s norms, genes, resources etc. Liberalism is evolutionary novel, thus practiced more by more intelligent people.

11. Weird Hobbies

Geniuses are inclined to ‘weirdness’ or they just don’t follow what averages consider ‘normal’. A genius’ idea of fun is equally weird. Can you guess what Einstein’s hobby was? It was not reading about what researchers have said about electromagnetic rays, neither was it spending hours to derive a mathematical relation between physical quantities, Einstein loved to sail.

12. They Do Things Which Make Other People Ridicule Them

Everyone laughed at Wright brothers, did not they? Because no one had a goal quite like theirs. Darwin was criticized by the scientific community after he presented his theory of Evolution. Socrates had to take poison because Greeks believed he has corrupted youth by his radical concepts.

13. Mental Illness – There is not much difference between geniuses and mad, is there?

High IQ and mental disorders go hand in hand. OCD has been associated with above average IQ, bipolar with creativity, autism with music skills, there has not been a genius without ‘crazy’ in history.

14. Being the Oldest Child

Parents interact more emotionally and psychologically to their first child, thus causing the child to develop better intellectually. The oldest children on average have 3 points higher IQ than the closest sibling.

15. Breastfeeding and IQ

Breastfeeding increases IQ by 7-10 points if the child has a variant of FADS2 gene. Another study concluded that children breastfed for first 6 months had a verbal IQ of 10.48 points more.

16. Lefty 

It’s the right side of brain that controls the left side of the body and vice versa. In left-handed people, they can use both side of brain equally thus being able to process more incoming information. Researchers have observed that these people have more vocabulary and problem solving capacity, making them somewhat smarter than right handed people, usually with an IQ of 140 and above. But bad news lefties, research also says you tend to forget things easily.

17. Have you always been the tallest in class?

A study found that even before children start going to school taller kids perform better on cognitive tests.

18. Being Skinny

Obesity has been shown to decrease IQ over time. A research led by French scientists found that people with Body Mass Index of 20 or below do better in vocabulary test than people with BMI of 30 or more.

19. Being Smart Never Means You Have To Be Truthful

Because more intelligent people are aware of their ability, they lie more than average people when they think it can get them out of a tough situation. Lying requires the brain to reason and process, more efficiently, scientists have shown that parts of the brain involved in working memory with tend to be more developed in smart people are activated when they lie.

20. Smart as your Mom!

Genes decide how our brain will develop, so smartness determined  genes are more likely to run in families, smart parents have more chance than average parents to produce smart kids, it has been proved by studies of IQ in identical and fraternal twins.

21. Can’t Hear What I’m Thinking!

Once considered a sign of insanity, talking to yourself has shown to improve memory. When there is a storm of thoughts in your mind and you talk to yourself loudly, it will be easy to remember next time, because your mind will know it’s familiar.

22. Gift Me A Guitar Next Time

Part of brain that process the information received are more developed in musician than in an average person. Experiments have shown that learning an instrument can change your brain’s neurophysiology.

23. Don’t Underestimate a Listening Ear!

Geniuses listen more and that’s how they learn, complex auditory processes are involved in listening attentively and storing it in your mind, so obviously smart people are better at it.

So these are the signs of genius, have you found any resemblance in your character? If you do so, then probably you are a genius.

      • (N degrees/360 degrees) X N^2 = N of rotations around a 360 degree circle
        Also, it appears that if you were to take the values for all the divisible numbers for 360 and multiply all 24 values times 360, 18 of the 24 total divisible numbers for 360(360) are in pairs where one number in the pair 10X greater or less than the value of the second number in that pair (or a(360)X10= b (360) where a and b are both divisible by 360)…The 18 numbers or nine pairs that are X10 or /10 in value for 2 divisible numbers are: 360/3600 for 1 and 10 multipled by 360, 720/7200 for 2 and 20, 1080/10800 for 3 and 30, 1440/14400 for 4 and 40, 2160/21600 for 6 and 60, 3240/32400 for 9 and 90, 4320/43200 for 12 and 120, 6480/64800 for 18 and 180, 12960/129600 for 36 and 360. Interestingly enough, take the smallest number assigned to the first value in numerical order from smallest to largest values for numbers divisible by 360 and you get the following values for each number. smallest for the left column: then the middle values notated between ( ) is the value of that number X330, so you can see the matching factors of 10 for number values:
        #1=1, ———-(360)
        #2=2, ——————– (720)
        #3=3, ————————- (1080)
        #4=4, ———————————–(1440)
        #5=5,
        #6=6, ———————————————(2160)
        #7=8,
        #8=9, ——————————————————-(3240)
        ,#9=10, ———(3600)
        #10=12,————————————————————–(4320)
        #11=15,
        #12=18,———————————————————————–(6480)
        #13=20,—————–(7200)
        #14=24,
        #15=30,————————-(10800)
        #16=36,———————————————————————————-(12960)
        #17=40,———————————-(14400)
        #18=45
        #19=60——————————————–(21600)
        #20=72
        #21=90——————————————————(32400)
        #22=120————————————————————–(43200)
        #23=180————————————————————————(64800)
        #24=360——————————————————————————–(129600)

        So the 1st smallest and 9th smallest numbers divisible by 360 are 10X greater or less in value from eachother, 2nd and 13th values, 3rd and 15th, 4th and 17th, 6th and 19th, 8 and 21st, 10 and 22nd, 12 and 23rd, 16 and 24th values are the 9 pairs that are 10X in value from eachother for both numbers in a pair…or to put it in shorthand writing:
        1/9
        2/13
        3/15
        4/17
        6/19
        8/21
        10/22
        12/23
        16/24
        Now take the difference of the larger number in the pair – the smaller number in the pair and you get:
        9-1= 8
        13-2=11
        15-3=12
        17-4=13 *
        19-6=13 *
        21-8=13 *
        22-10=12
        23-12=11
        24-16=8

        Notice how the top and bottom values match for a difference of 8. second to top and bottom match with a value difference of 11. 3rd top and bottom difference values match=12. Then you have the middle 3 values that all match with a value of 13 for a difference…so out of the 9 values, the middle three are the same and the top three match up with or line up with the bottom three values in reverse order of smallest to greatest number to 3rd smallest to third greatest. Coolahoops, eh? Or am I just spinning in mad circles that scream DORK=( rotating whale penis going in mad circles in protest to dick in the box that is limited to linear movements within a box )… yeah, I might be a tish kooky.
        Divisible numbers of 360 and binary code patterns…David read my mind and beat me to posting something about converting the values to binary code for a circle… Very snazzy though; gotta love fellow geek ideas. :) Anyway, I converted the values to binary and noticed a pattern that divided the 24 numbers into 6 different sets of 4 values that correlate to the binary code values and multiplying each value by 10 or dividing by 10 for the next number up and down for the binary code sequence…For instance, 2^-1 or (.1) X10= 1 or 2^0 going up one value in binary code sequence. 2^0 or (1) X 10 = 10 which is 2^1 or 2 for another additional value in binary code sequence going up…so after making my list of circle binary codes for numbers divisible by 360, I noticed that four values out of the 24 values could be divided by 10 for each number added for the four numbers….So going from smallest value to the largest value, I’d have the first value as (N), the second value as (NX10), the third value as (N X 100), and the fourth value as (N X 1000). Then, going from largest to smallest value, I went in reverse with (1000N) as the first value, (100N) as the second value, (10N) as the third value, and N as the fourth value. This could be done in three different ways either going smallest to largest to correlate with the three additive light values for physics light primary colors, and going in reverse from largest to smallest are the 3 reverse ways for the subtractive physics light primary colors. Here are the binary code values for the 24 numbers with markings to note different sets of 4 numbers for 6 sets to correlate with the 6 colors used for physics light.

        1. (1)
        2. (10)
        3. 11 *
        4. (100)
        5. “101”
        6. 110 *
        8. (1000)
        “9.” 1001
        10. “1010”
        12. 1100 *
        *15. 1111
        “18.” 10010
        20. “10100”
        24. 11000 *
        *30.11110
        “36.” 100100
        40. “101000”
        (45) 101101
        *60. 111100
        “72.” 1001000
        (90.) 1011010
        *120. 1111000
        (180). 10110100
        (360.) 101101000

        The first and last set are: (1,2,4,8) and (360,180,90,45). Notice how they start with the first and last two values for divisible numbers of 360, skip one value and with the third value being 4th number up and down the sequence of 24 numbers, skip 2 values with the last of the four values being the 8th number going up and down the sequence of divisible numbers of 360.

        The second and second from last set are: *3,6,12,24* and *120,60,30,15*. The pattern for this set would be the first value being either third smallest or third largest number, skip 2 values with the second value being 6th from the top or bottom value,skip three values with the third value being the 10th from top or bottom, skip three values with the final value being 14th from the top or bottom of the sequence.

        The 3rd set and 3rd last set would be “5,10,20,40” and “72,36,18,9”. All four values are evenly spaced with three values inbetween each of the four numbers with the first value being 5th from the top of bottom of the sequence of 24 values divisible by 360. twee.
        There’s more patterns but that’s enough babblings of circle binary code twisted patterns of thought.

        That’s just a start…I’ve also connected numerical values for physics light colors for the three additive and subtractive primary colors to music note lengths to binary code values for points on a 3d cube for dimensions in space… How snazzy, eh?

        Thinking outside the cube

    • Haha, Yeah he does, but so do many people in real life, like if you read biographies of some great scientists, writers and artists of the past, you will find these signs in them, too. :)

  1. Very entertaining…Also relieved to know that it’s the storm in my brain causing me to talk out loud to myself. Aha! So glad it’s not insanity. (or is it? there I go, talking to myself again) Great list.

  2. One thing is for sure. Whatever preconceived notions I had on the matter were certainly altered when I started blogging. I can’t believe how many intelligent, creative and talented people are out there. But it makes me wonder if such is the case why isn’t the world a much better place.

    • Yes, Carl. There are lot of intelligent people around, but unfortunately, there number is not even half of that of average people. Besides intelligent, one has to be broad-minded and brave enough to do something good, which most of the people aren’t. That’s why the world is still the same as it was centuries ago.

      I recommend you read an essay “Bromides and Sulphites’ by Gelett Burgess, it will give you some insight on the matter. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. :)

    • Agreed, it was interesting. I hate to question studies, but I worked in a school for gifted and talented children (K-8) and have followed some of them into college via Facebook. Many are quite gregarious, have a great sense of humor, and enjoy a lot of social interaction.

      • Again these were on average stats, indicating that there do exist those that do not have social problems. Also it might be worth noting that you are not them and cannot attest to their mental state during or regarding social situations. Many of them may simply be intelligent enough to form special ways of socializing that make it easier for them, while at the same time it is still not an abundantly enjoyable task.

        I’m not saying I am a genius but, I know I have social problems and I alter my normal behavior in order to provide responses typically expected. I find talking to most people incredibly dull as they insist on talking about the most boring monotonous subjects and often repeat themselves without realizing it and most people are in-capable of debating a subject without turning it into a hostile argument in which personal feelings are brought in.

        There is also, I feel, a massive problem with human communication in general that makes any conversation difficult. Everyone has a different perspective and from that perspective comes different definitions or interpretations of things. Take the statement “I really love cheese”, this statement can be interpreted hundreds of different ways and unless everyone in the conversation can reach the exact same interpretation, you can’t be sure what they really said at all!

  3. Wow, Ghazal, this is a very interesting post! I’ve heard it somewhere, too, that the difference between a genius and a mad man is a hairline…What do you think?

    I wish you could give some examples of those geniuses who do drugs (#4). Someone so obsessed with becoming a genius might try this out and see if some hallucinations could do the trick. :-)

  4. I found the facts in this article very interesting! I have very light blue eyes, I hope I am not trusted less because of this. I also like number 12. I always argue with husband to take risks, even if he or no one else thinks they will work out!

    • Well, one doesn’t have to spend $14,000 on sex toys to be called a genius. Not all more intelligent people spend more than average IQ on sex toys, that’s just an average.

  7. I think the main point of being a genius is that you are different to the rest of us, so I don’t think they can be as quantifiable as this list seems to suggest. The link between genius and mental illness is just that they both think differently to most of us, so again, different can be many things, and there are many social, cultural and gender differences. There seem to be more geniuses in wealthy families because they allow them to be.

    • Well, you are right and you are not. First not all geniuses are apparently different than ordinary people ,they just blend in and act like everybody else and no the only difference is not about being different, every man and woman in history who did something great was a genius, whether or not they had all these properties.Yes, madness and genius are linked cause that makes those people think differently than rest.There seem to be more genius in rich families because a good nutrition, education and the way they are bought up counts a lot even if they aren’t genetically blessed with high IQ.

  8. This is fascinating stuff Ghazal. Found you through Jo’s reblog btw. My eldest son fits a fair bit of the above (not all) and is a MENSA member (although he never mentions it!), my younger son is a musician and my daughter has Asperger’s Syndrome which affects her socially but she, like the boys is extremely bright. Gosh, hope I don’t sound like one of those awful mums bragging endlessly about her ‘perfect’ children but I’m only replying like this because of the nature of your excellent post to give some feedback. So you can see why I found this so interesting, thank you! – Sherri :-)

    • Well, you are very lucky to have such intelligent children, I hope you encourage them to contribute to improvement of society and people in any possible way, because they can. Thank you for sharing! :)

    • Interesting question! You will be surprised to see that those people who attained something and we call them geniuses for that are really geniuses and have most of these signs e.g all the great poets, writers, scientists, etc, I have read about had some sort of mental illness or weird behavior, most were socially awful or anti social. Now, your other question is a bit tricky. From what I have found with my study, observation and research that mostly geniuses do attain a lot of things or at least whatever they want, I know most of people would think of it as silly or exaggeration but that’s just my view. Remember, geniuses don’t always become great discoverers or renowned poets but they do excel at something whether they are known for it or not. Besides, it’s not only an IQ of 145 and above that classifies you as genius but it is one of those factors that make someone a genius.I hope you get my point, thank you for visiting Sparkonit!

  15. Dang, here goes a long reply/post.
    · “…male hormone testosterone tends to inhibit intelligence.”
    LOL! I think the phrase “clouds the mind and good judgment” would be even better!
    · “Some geniuses might even become arrogant, not interacting with people they think can’t reach their mental level and may even develop anti-social personality. “
    I’ve noticed that even when a group of them get together they engage in “intellectual oneupsmanship.” “Herding cats” comes to mind.
    · “…they are more likely to plunge in an ocean of drugs and become addicts than less intelligent people.”
    That would describe my first (and “late”) husband. I finally decided it was the only way he could either bring his intellect down to their level, and/or slow it enough to stand to talk with them.
    · “…they like to challenge evolution”
    Which is a great way to get criticized. (Yes, I am interpreting that my way)
    · “Liberalism is…practiced more by more intelligent people.”
    No, just by people who think they are. Remember that part about being arrogant? ;-)
    · “They Do Things Which Make Other People Ridicule Them”
    Like challenging Evolution (see above) and believing in God.
    · Being the Oldest Child
    Interesting. I’ll have to see if Mensa or Intertel have any statistics on that.
    · “Lefty…somewhat smarter than right handed people, usually with an IQ of 140 and above. But bad news lefties, research also says you tend to forget things easily.”
    That explains some things.
    · “Have you always been the tallest in class?
    · Being Skinny”
    Hmm. I guess there’s hope for me, yet.
    · “Once considered a sign of insanity, talking to yourself has shown to improve memory.”
    Woo hoo! I’m on a roll!
    · “…learning an instrument can change your brain’s neurophysiology.”
    That’s it, I’m going back to my harmonica and bowed psaltry.
    · “…complex auditory processes are involved in listening attentively and storing it in your mind,”
    As an ASL interpreter I listen with my ears and my hands. I wonder how that factors in.

    Conclusion? I’m terrible at sports.

  17. Regarding point #1, have there been any studies done on women to see if there’s any correlation between IQ and monogamy? I ask both as a polycurious woman and as someone who takes an article more seriously if there are links to the referenced studies in the piece itself. Otherwise, I’m not buying any of this drivel. Even Cracked.com does a better job wit article-style inline citations.

  20. IQ and education are not linked. You can live in an extremely poor country and have the misfortune of not being educated and still have a very high IQ. It will just be expressed differently.

    • This is an almost true statement. IQ is actually a combination of intelligence and knowledge. IQ is like your score that says how effectively you can learn something, but IQ is a variant number that is dependent on both intelligence and knowledge.

      Intelligence is a finite ability of your brain to process information, this will never change and it has to do with the quality of the connections made in your brain, not the contents or quantity of those connections.

      Knowledge on the other hand is infinite and will change at a “real-time” constant rate as your brain takes in new (or old) data, as it takes in this data your brain forms more new connections which in turn create new pathways to connect information, making it easy for the information to be located no matter where you start from.

      IQ is derived from the effectiveness of the combination of these two things.. the quality of the connections (speed, consistency, etc..) coupled with new pathways in which to connect pieces of information to be processed. So knowledge is a factor of IQ but not of intelligence.

      To put it more simply… you can be ignorant and not stupid.
      Which is to say that you can be very smart and simply lack knowledge, making you appear stupid.

  21. Well, Ghazal, genius or not I have found your blog most interesting! I think you’ve found a fan ~ sorry, I mean a follower, lol! I am going to enjoy reading your posts backwards (is that also a sign?).

  22. I believe people whit blue eyes are stupid and have slower brains,,,,

    see how that sounds?

    please study about geniuses there have been worldwide ,, just google and then write an article about it ,,,, otherwise its not worth reading

    • I second this notion. If there were sources linked in this piece, it would certainly boost the author’s credibility. Otherwise, as Abdullah demonstrates, this looks like something ripped off of Buzzfeed.

      • Same reply goes to you. You need to study more about Geniuses throughout the world or history. It’s obvious you lack the knowledge of Basic Evolution and Biology. You need to get your facts straight.

    • That’s funny, did you bother to google it at all? If you are so “hurt” to hear that blue eyed people are (on average) more intelligent then you should just learn to face the truth. Just because you believe “white people with blue eyes are stupid and have slower brains”, does not make it a fact. BTW, I am neither white nor do I have blue eyes, which is obviously what you seem to think.

      Blue eyed people are more intelligent because evolution made them so, these are the people who had to cope with cold of North, had to built houses or coverings to protect them from harsh weathers, they had to produce means to gather food in 24 hours of snowing/raining, they had to ensure the survival of their off-spring, In other words, in order to live they had to overcome the extreme cold and to do that they had to be smart enough, that’s how they evolved to be smarter.

      And you know what you seem to miss the basic logic here, these statistics are taken ‘on average’. Means on average blue eyed individuals are more intelligent than brown eyed ones or the percentage of intelligence for blue eyed people is greater. It doesn’t mean all blue eyed people are more intelligent than all the brown eyed people. In fact, the statistics are taken on average for everything; e.g. not all tall people are more intelligent than all the short people but majority of them are, not all highly intelligent people are socially awkward but most of them are. Do you get it now?

      You don’t have to be offended just because you have brown eyes. And it’s you not me who needs to study more about Geniuses throughout the world or history. It’s obvious you lack the knowledge of Basic Evolution and Biology. You need to get your facts straight.

      Please do some research before criticizing the work of scientists who have way more knowledge,experience,intellect and means to prove something right or wrong.

  24. Extremely fascinating indeed but I too would kind of like to see proof. Kind of because knowing if I’m a genius will not help me to advance myself in any way that I truly need or want.

    If; however, this is all reliable, then I score a definite 11 points out of 23. I possibly could score 16/23 as there is potential that I have 5 other characteristics.

    So, a range of 48% to 70% is interesting.

  26. I don’t mean to sound condescending, I was reading the article and found it very interesting, but once I saw the “right handed people use this side of the brain, left handed people use both sides” your credibility fell tremendously. That’s a common misconception, an old wives tale, with no scientific backing. This seemed like a well-written article, so I advise that you maybe revise some of it.

  27. (N degrees/360 degrees) X N^2 = N of rotations around a 360 degree circle
    Also, it appears that if you were to take the values for all the divisible numbers for 360 and multiply all 24 values times 360, 18 of the 24 total divisible numbers for 360(360) are in pairs where one number in the pair 10X greater or less than the value of the second number in that pair (or a(360)X10= b (360) where a and b are both divisible by 360)…The 18 numbers or nine pairs that are X10 or /10 in value for 2 divisible numbers are: 360/3600 for 1 and 10 multipled by 360, 720/7200 for 2 and 20, 1080/10800 for 3 and 30, 1440/14400 for 4 and 40, 2160/21600 for 6 and 60, 3240/32400 for 9 and 90, 4320/43200 for 12 and 120, 6480/64800 for 18 and 180, 12960/129600 for 36 and 360. Interestingly enough, take the smallest number assigned to the first value in numerical order from smallest to largest values for numbers divisible by 360 and you get the following values for each number. smallest for the left column: then the middle values notated between ( ) is the value of that number X330, so you can see the matching factors of 10 for number values:
    #1=1, ———-(360)
    #2=2, ——————– (720)
    #3=3, ————————- (1080)
    #4=4, ———————————–(1440)
    #5=5,
    #6=6, ———————————————(2160)
    #7=8,
    #8=9, ——————————————————-(3240)
    ,#9=10, ———(3600)
    #10=12,————————————————————–(4320)
    #11=15,
    #12=18,———————————————————————–(6480)
    #13=20,—————–(7200)
    #14=24,
    #15=30,————————-(10800)
    #16=36,———————————————————————————-(12960)
    #17=40,———————————-(14400)
    #18=45
    #19=60——————————————–(21600)
    #20=72
    #21=90——————————————————(32400)
    #22=120————————————————————–(43200)
    #23=180————————————————————————(64800)
    #24=360——————————————————————————–(129600)

    So the 1st smallest and 9th smallest numbers divisible by 360 are 10X greater or less in value from eachother, 2nd and 13th values, 3rd and 15th, 4th and 17th, 6th and 19th, 8 and 21st, 10 and 22nd, 12 and 23rd, 16 and 24th values are the 9 pairs that are 10X in value from eachother for both numbers in a pair…or to put it in shorthand writing:
    1/9
    2/13
    3/15
    4/17
    6/19
    8/21
    10/22
    12/23
    16/24
    Now take the difference of the larger number in the pair – the smaller number in the pair and you get:
    9-1= 8
    13-2=11
    15-3=12
    17-4=13 *
    19-6=13 *
    21-8=13 *
    22-10=12
    23-12=11
    24-16=8

    Notice how the top and bottom values match for a difference of 8. second to top and bottom match with a value difference of 11. 3rd top and bottom difference values match=12. Then you have the middle 3 values that all match with a value of 13 for a difference…so out of the 9 values, the middle three are the same and the top three match up with or line up with the bottom three values in reverse order of smallest to greatest number to 3rd smallest to third greatest. Coolahoops, eh? Or am I just spinning in mad circles that scream DORK=( rotating whale penis going in mad circles in protest to dick in the box that is limited to linear movements within a box )… yeah, I might be a tish kooky.
    Divisible numbers of 360 and binary code patterns…David read my mind and beat me to posting something about converting the values to binary code for a circle… Very snazzy though; gotta love fellow geek ideas. :) Anyway, I converted the values to binary and noticed a pattern that divided the 24 numbers into 6 different sets of 4 values that correlate to the binary code values and multiplying each value by 10 or dividing by 10 for the next number up and down for the binary code sequence…For instance, 2^-1 or (.1) X10= 1 or 2^0 going up one value in binary code sequence. 2^0 or (1) X 10 = 10 which is 2^1 or 2 for another additional value in binary code sequence going up…so after making my list of circle binary codes for numbers divisible by 360, I noticed that four values out of the 24 values could be divided by 10 for each number added for the four numbers….So going from smallest value to the largest value, I’d have the first value as (N), the second value as (NX10), the third value as (N X 100), and the fourth value as (N X 1000). Then, going from largest to smallest value, I went in reverse with (1000N) as the first value, (100N) as the second value, (10N) as the third value, and N as the fourth value. This could be done in three different ways either going smallest to largest to correlate with the three additive light values for physics light primary colors, and going in reverse from largest to smallest are the 3 reverse ways for the subtractive physics light primary colors. Here are the binary code values for the 24 numbers with markings to note different sets of 4 numbers for 6 sets to correlate with the 6 colors used for physics light.

    1. (1)
    2. (10)
    3. 11 *
    4. (100)
    5. “101″
    6. 110 *
    8. (1000)
    “9.” 1001
    10. “1010″
    12. 1100 *
    *15. 1111
    “18.” 10010
    20. “10100″
    24. 11000 *
    *30.11110
    “36.” 100100
    40. “101000″
    (45) 101101
    *60. 111100
    “72.” 1001000
    (90.) 1011010
    *120. 1111000
    (180). 10110100
    (360.) 101101000

    The first and last set are: (1,2,4,8) and (360,180,90,45). Notice how they start with the first and last two values for divisible numbers of 360, skip one value and with the third value being 4th number up and down the sequence of 24 numbers, skip 2 values with the last of the four values being the 8th number going up and down the sequence of divisible numbers of 360.

    The second and second from last set are: *3,6,12,24* and *120,60,30,15*. The pattern for this set would be the first value being either third smallest or third largest number, skip 2 values with the second value being 6th from the top or bottom value,skip three values with the third value being the 10th from top or bottom, skip three values with the final value being 14th from the top or bottom of the sequence.

    The 3rd set and 3rd last set would be “5,10,20,40″ and “72,36,18,9″. All four values are evenly spaced with three values inbetween each of the four numbers with the first value being 5th from the top of bottom of the sequence of 24 values divisible by 360. twee.
    There’s more patterns but that’s enough babblings of circle binary code twisted patterns of thought.

    That’s just a start…I’ve also connected numerical values for physics light colors for the three additive and subtractive primary colors to music note lengths to binary code values for points on a 3d cube for dimensions in space… How snazzy, eh?

    Thinking outside the cube

  28. Some are true such as less social type, sleep late due to strong passions. But there are still many i disagree with like high sex drive because it doesn’t affects a person’s cleverness. Talking about well known universities students, you can say all of them are geniuses. There are many great people without degrees and even if they did, it wasn’t due to the schools taught them, it was their talents (born). If schools produces geniuses, then everyone can be geniuses. And yes, they tend to go against the actual way. Eye colors don’t judge a person’s IQ, I can bet with you. It is not that more clever people WILL sleep less, if a man sleeps too little every day, he will be in his coffin before he could be recognize as a genius. And height doesn’t matters, so stop going too far. Skinny doesnt means smart because can be dumb.

  29. I fit in to all categories except 9, 17, and 18. I am bit happy about that. It kind of makes me sad that I didn’t stay in my Science route that I had planned all my life. I guess I realized it was more that it was extremely easy rather than what I enjoyed. Easy doesn’t mean fun.

  30. I think I might be a genius. I’m anti-social when it comes to being on the internet. I’m one of the most famous people in school because I love to make people laugh. Though, in most games I play, I tend to use logical reasoning to figure out how to get better at it. I don’t just take things as it is. “OH, You’ll get better at it over time” Over time my behind. I take information from people and form my own opinion. My logical reasoning skill is primitive, which is why I do better in math than in science. I do believe in God and I have brown eyes.Observing how people react to what may be what I’ll do next. Also, I do lie quite often

    • What I’ve figured out in the past 8 years is that when I hear things to fast to count in my mind, I keep record of the noises. Example: I tap 30 times on the counter. I then slowly play the “Sound Track” I stored in my head, and figure out how many times I’ve tapped the counter.

  31. The bit about geniuses not sleeping with just anyone is total rubbish !!! Most of them don’t sleep around, anyway; but when they do, it’s with whoever’s to hand.
    Leonardo was VERY gay. Tesla thought sex would interfere with his genius. Who was the other one …?

  32. Loved this entry. Einstein’s relationship with his second wife was like Darwin’s. Having sex less often does not mean it is less valued or enjoyed less eh? Genius’s may be less social because they enjoy their own company. I can click several of these traits off but my husband is the smartest man I have ever known.
