Unfortunately the society undervalues intelligence and the ability of critical thinking. This is being neglected due to those ones who are entertaining and distracting us from the reality. Highly intelligent people are not bothered with entertainment news instead they value deep reflection and contemplation since in that way they may gain new ideas and perspective.
Although the true intelligence is rare these days, due to the lack of its practical implementation, you can still adopt the following habits that highly intelligent people have and it that way contribute to increasing your intelligence as well.
Intelligent people do these things differently:
1. They question the predominant and widespread ideals
Intelligent people never take for granted everything they hear, on the contrary, they question every aspect of our existence, such as morals, beliefs, tradition, the system we are living in and so on. They are prone to critical thinking and never form an opinion before previously delving into issues deeply. They never accept everything they hear from the authority figures. Intelligent people are able to see trough lies and do not let others to push them back in a corner. They have their own opinions and beliefs and they always follow their path.
2. Highly intelligent people never worship idols
They strongly believe that no one can be their master or guru since the true knowledge lies within themselves. They also understand that they cannot possess all the knowledge in the world and they are able to learn from literally everyone. Since no one knows everything, intelligent people do not worship idols. The only one master they rely on lies within themselves.
3. Their thirst for knowledge never ends
Highly intelligent people are aware that there are so many things they can learn about and they desire to experience and learn more. They want to expand their knowledge and mind and really enjoy in intelligent conversations. Expanding their knowledge prevents them from becoming stagnant. They believe that knowledge is a real power and kind of mental ammunition.
4. Higher intelligence means turning your thoughts into action
Thoughts without action are meaningless. Highly intelligent people have realized that in order to accomplish their goals they must turn their thoughts into actions. They always look for a chance to implement and apply their knowledge since without that their thoughts cannot be useful for the world in any way. They also enjoy creating new plans in order to achieve their goals.
5. They consider quiet reflection as really valuable
Only highly intelligent people know the true value of quiet reflection. The world moves extremely fast and the term “being” became less meaningful for most people. It is due to our busy schedules which prevent us from devoting our time to our own “being”, since we all have to work, act, produce and earn. It means we have less time for living, feeling, loving, thinking and reflecting. Highly intelligent people know that all the answers we need lay deep within and that is why they spend more time reflecting.
Even if they do not get the answers immediately they still worship the necessity of being alone and detached from the noise in the world, since in that way they rejuvenate their body, mind and soul. They are aware of the fact that in order to form successful relationships with everything in their lives they need to have a harmonious relationship with themselves first.
