Do you consider yourself an intelligent person? Not quite sure? Luckily for you, there is a way to tell if you have a high IQ without taking any tests. While it is difficult to determine whether you are smart or not without measuring some important elements that describe brain function, there are some traits that can point out just how intelligent you are.

This video produced by BI Science explains how scientists have come to these conclusions and lists some of the signs that can predict how clever you are. The following 5 research-proven signs show that you are a smart individual:

  1. You come from a smart family.
  2. You are the oldest child in the family.
  3. You are a night owl.
  4. You are a musician.
  5. You take psychoactive drugs.

While the latter is strongly discouraged, there has been a recent study that showed highly intelligent students are more likely to take drugs in contrast to less intelligent students.

Overall, scientists support that genetics, the environment in which you are raised and your habits can determine whether you are an intelligent individual or not.

So, do you consider yourself as a smart individual? Check out the video and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below…
