Top 10 Signs That You’re A GENIUS


Hey YouTube, Jim here! Welcome to Top10Archive! Have you ever felt that you’re the smartest
person in the room? That maybe nobody gets you because you’re
just too sophisticated? Well, there are a few ways for you to find
out and prove it to those that doubt you. Go through this list of ten items to see just
how much of a genius you are! If you can dumb yourself down to our level

You may have to put up with right-handed desks and other pitfalls of being left-handed, but
you also get the chance to gloat about how smart you are. A joint study performed by the University
of Liverpool, University of Milan, and Maastricht University found that left-handed people exhibit
a more developed right-brain hemisphere. That hemisphere is directly responsible for
processing spatial reasoning and rotating mental representations. Left-handed people also tend to have a greater
link between the two hemispheres, which assists in information processing. 9. Your Sense of Humor is Unparalleled
Have a problem where you tend to laugh at dark jokes? You may be a genius. A study in the Cognitive Processing journal
concluded that people who enjoy dark humor tend to have a higher IQ. To prove the correlation between an inappropriate
sense of humor and intelligence, 156 male and female subjects were read cartoons from
The Black Book by Uli Stein. Each participant indicated whether they’d
understood and appreciated the joke, then took a basic IQ test. In general, those that understood the joke
and found it funny also scored higher on the IQ test. 8. You Enjoy the Night
If this one’s true, everyone at Team Top 10 is as smart as they come. Psychology Today once reported that people
with higher intelligence are typically night owls. Young Americans were studied and it was determined
that those with a higher IQ enjoyed staying up later. Psychologist at the London School of Economics
and Political Science, Satoshi Kanazawa, followed this up with a report that claimed there is
a direct relation between IQs and sleeping patterns. According to Kanazawa, the average brain has
been conditioned to follow the same sleep patterns of primitive people, who rose and
fell with the sun. 7. You Enjoy a Challenge
If you’re a true genius, you aren’t going to be looking for the easy way out. You’ll want the challenge and you’ll want
to learn every step of the way. A true genius may find themselves sacrificing
sleep for the sake of a good riddle or solving an illusion or brain teaser. People of higher IQ and genius-level intellect
don’t find much joy in simplistic puzzles that even “commoners” could solve. 6. You Enjoy a Good Book
It’s not so much that “non-geniuses” don’t read, but someone who qualifies as a genius
or has a much higher IQ is more prone to spending a Saturday evening deep in a book. There is, however, believed to be a correlation
between reading more and an increase in levels of the three types of intelligence: Emotional
intelligence, crystallized intelligence, and book knowledge. It may also help if you start reading books
written by geniuses or biographies about geniuses, but that’s not an official study. 5. You’re a Worrywart
There’s nothing worse than spending your days worrying about everything. The end of the world? It’s always on your mind. Terrorism? Can’t quite stop thinking about it, right? Well, there’s a chance that overactive mind
of yours may mean you’re a genius. Dr. Adam Perkins, expert of Neurobiology of
Personality at King’s College in London believes he found a link between anxiety, overactive
imaginations, and very intelligent people. One argument in favor of the belief is that
this level of concerned imagination is a self-preservation. 4. You’re Addicted to Something
That may sound a little contradicting and you may immediately think that if someone
gets addicted to something, they’re already not smart for trying an addictive substance. If history says anything, though, people deemed
genius were known for their addictive habits. Consider Charles Dickens and his love for
opium or Edgar Allan Poe’s struggle with alcohol. Recluse Howard Hughes checked off many “genius”
boxes and topped it all off with his addiction to opiates. The list goes on and on and includes names
like Sigmund Freud, Vincent van Gogh, and even fictional geniuses like Dr. Gregory House
and Sherlock Holmes. (Although, personally, I think you’re smarter
if you don’t get involved at all with any of these abused substances.) 3. You Have a Curious Mind
It would make sense that a genius would be curious, right? It was Albert Einstein, who, by the way, was
thought to have an addiction to tobacco and cocaine, that said “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” Research in 2016 from Adrian Furnham and Helen
Cheng performed in London discussed the connection between childhood intelligence and the curiosity
they show as an adult. It was determined that 11-year-olds that scored
high on an IQ test were more open to life experiences at an older age. 2. You’re Reserved
The Gifted Development Center took a look at “gifted children” to determine what it
was like to be a sort of childhood genius. What they determined was that, sometimes,
the highly intelligent have a higher level of reservation. The study found that 60% of gifted and intelligent
kids had introverted personalities. It also showed that more than 75% of people
sporting an IQ of 160 or higher were also shy. 1. You Talk to Yourself
Genius or crazy? it’s a fun game to play in the subways of major cities. Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology
printed a study performed by psychologists Daniel Swigley and Gary Lupya that theorized
that talking to yourself was actually pretty beneficial. The study set 20 people off in search of an
object in a supermarket. First, they had to search for the item in
silence. The second go around, they could speak to
themselves and what was found was that those that spoke to themselves were able to complete
the tasks more easily. Thanks for watching! Smart move! Remember to subscribe, click the bell, like

  5. I was left handed at first but back then in school the teachers beat you until you switched hands. My teacher would slap me in the face hard in front of the class from time to time. They did not know better. I stay up at night and love it. I just stayed up all night just this night. I love learning and get bored at work but love it when things get a bit harder. My mind will not stay quiet and I have a wild imagination. And I talk to myself so much I have to try to hide it. Its just thinking out loud but folks think it nuts. I like comics and Star Trek and have star track dolls (action figures, ha-ha) and use to have a large collection of Sci-Fi books and star trek books along with an old Star Trek Manual. Highest IQ in my classes and what did it get me? I learned how to run real fast and fight when I had to fight. Even your own family will toss you aside because a young black girl is not supposed to be like that or like this and love hiking on weekends instead of doing….what ever it is they do in the hood on weekends but one thing was for sure, I hated drugs. So I was called dumb most of my life by people around me and family because there is only one way to behave in the hood and you must be cool when yo do it (never found out what cool means) but most of those people that called me dumb did not do well in life and as for the rest, I love my family more than they love me but I try to live at lest 1000 or more miles away from them now and let me tell you, thats smart! life now is good. Im 50 years old and finally happy!
