Intelligent isn’t a talent that you are born with, it’s a long-lasting process that requires constant improvement on your skills and talents. Most of us move through life never knowing exactly how smart are we. Your intelligence or IQ is determent by the age of 25, so everything that you have learned up till this point will be with you for the rest of your life.

Researchers from the Singapore Managment University analyzed data from a large survey involving 10,000 people from age 18-28 which all underwent IQ tests. The results showed that people with low IQ’s are more likely to enjoy their time socializing but for people with high IQ’s frequent socializing is linked to unhappiness. People with high IQ’s enjoy spending time alone because it gives them the much-needed time to develop and work on their skills and talents.
You learn from previous mistakes
Many people who have huge ego’s don’t recognize their mistake and they miss the opportunity to learn from their previous mistakes. Michigan University researchers did an interesting study where they discovered that people who believe they can learn from previous mistakes are more likely to have a higher IQ level than the average human.
