PostSubject: The Good And Bad Habits Of Smart People   Sun 6 Jul - 12:55




The Habits of Smart People



When asked if they would rather be smart or dumb, surely everyone would answer smart! If you're looking to improve your mental capabilities you can start by following in the footsteps of some of the smartest people in the world.




A person's Intelligence Quotient indicates their mental abilities relative to others of approximately the same age.




   Average IQ= 100

   Above Average=115

   Genius= 140

   Extraordinary Genius=160




The Good Habits




They are persistent




Smart people don't let failure stop them.




   Albert Einstein (IQ=160) did not speak until he was 4

   Bill Gates' (IQ=160) first business failed

   Thomas Edison (IQ=145) tried to make a lightbulb over 1,000 times

   Benjamin Franklin (IQ=160) dropped out of school at age 10

   Ludwig Van Beethoven (IQ=165) was told he would never succeed




They set goals




Students were given 4 weeks to accomplish a goal...




   Students without written goals--->accomplish 43% of goals

   Students with written goals--->accomplish 64% of goals

   Students who share their goals with friends--> accomplish 76% of goals




They are avid readers




The benefits of reading include...




   Increases verbal skills

   Helps articulate thoughts

   Enhances problem solving skills

   Improved memory

   Increases concentration

   Improves writing skills

   Expands vocabulary




Just 15 minutes of reading a day exposes you to over 1,000,000 words a year.




They are self-disciplined




IQ level is a good indicator of rates of virginity amongst adolescents.




   Teens with IQ < 100 are 1.5-5 times more likely to have had sex than teens with 120 < IQ > 130

   Every additional IQ point increases odds of virginity 2.7% for males/ 1.7% for females




87% of all undergrads students have had sex. Undergrads at top schools that have had sex:




   Harvard= 59%

   Princeton=56%

   MIT=51%




This reflects a desire to safeguard educational and occupational plans by avoiding risk associated with adolescent sex.




They think about thinking




   Metacognition is the self-awareness of one's own knowledge, and affects critical thinking skills.

   Cognitive skills include comparing, analyzing, and inferring

   Metacognitive skills allow individuals to realize the best way to utilize their cognitive skills.




Being smart obviously has its' advantages, but there can be a downside...


The Bad Habits of Smart People






They are night owls




Effects of sleep deprivation:




   Increases risk of heart disease

   Increases risk of obesity

   3x more likely to suffer from depression

   Impairs judgement




They are anxious




In a 2012 study patients with generic anxiety disorder exhibited higher IQ scores than healthy volunteers. Although experts speculate worrisome people are more equipped to for see troublesome situations, anxiety has clear consequences.



Chronic anxiety can lead to:





   Smoking

   Depression

   Neuroticism




If you're looking to improve your success at home, school, or work, you can start by working the positive habits of smart people into your daily routine. Remember, while extreme intelligence has some negative associations, exhibiting these traits won't make you smarter!
