Smart people tend to stand out from the rest at an early age, but that is not always the case. Of course, as many statistics show, people with a high IQ usually share certain characteristics.
Today, we'll unfold 10 signs that people with high IQs usually have in common.
10. You are the older sibling
A scientific study showed that older siblings were smarter than younger siblings and that's due to their role in the family and the expectations they seek to fulfill.
9. You're tall
Are you the tallest in your squad? Not only are you very tall, but probably also very intelligent. An investigation by Princeton University showed that children with a height above average also were cognitively more advanced.
8. You don't smoke
Smoking is harmful to your health, and one study analyzed the intellectual coefficients of 20,000 men and those who did not smoke averaged an IQ of 7 points higher than smokers.

Geniuses are usually good musicians and learning an instrument from a young age helps develop intelligence, according to scientific research.
6. You are left-handed
Lefties have a more complicated life, but these challenges help them cultivate divergent thinking, a form of creativity in which they develop original ideas to function in a world made for the right-handed.
5. You maintain a healthy weight
Research in France compared the verbal ability of people according to their weight. Those in good shape had a wider vocabulary than those who were overweight.
4. You've tried drugs
Drugs damage the brain and the lives of people, but it is common for smarter people to have tried a recreational drug once they reach adulthood for curiosity purposes. Also, the most intelligent people do not prolong the consumption of such substances.
3. You have a cat
Cat or dog? According to the science, those who have cats as pets usually have intellectual behaviors more stimulating than the dog owners.
2. You suffer from insomnia
The brain of intelligent people do not stop and always seek out new challenges which lead them to have high levels of stress and sleep problems.
1. Your hobbies are fairly calm
Very intelligent people get bored easier with everyday tasks that interrupt their brain, so they have different hobbies, especially relaxing ones that can help them think quietly and develop ideas.
Being intelligent is a virtue! What do you think?
