Intelligence –Smart persons are always or tend to be quiet people. Reasons can vary depending on the side of the coin one is looking at this catchy question.
Asked about this, everybody has an answer to it depending on how they look at the glass-full and glass half-full analogy. However, the answer to this could be completely something else.
Travis Pumett – Philosopher and Liberal – considers that no one is giving the correct explanation on this question but goes a head to agree that smart persons are always less interactive or talkative.
Through a social discussion of August 28, Pummet argues that it’s because quiet people realize early in life that being too smart becomes a social obstacle so they downplay their intelligence to fit in with the rest.
He adds that highly-gifted children are known to struggle socially in their teens due to this situation and environment.
Smart people will often develop a habit of picking their battles with a lot of care because if they contribute to every conversation, they may outshine everyone else with their intelligence and could be seen as uppity and a know-it-all.
For many smart people, it’s hard to say anything at all without coming off as reminding everyone else of the disparity in intelligence.
“I believe there’s some research that does show that being mentally superior is a social liability in a way than being physically superior. In other words, it’s easier to be an athlete around non-athlete than it is to be a brainiac around non-brainiacs. Someone being too intelligent is instinctually felt as intimidating and stuck up,” Pumett further reasons.
For some smart people, they can’t really hide their intelligence very well. It’s built into how they speak and the way they structure their sentences, the cadence they use, their vocabulary etc.
In those cases, a smart person might choose to listen more and talk less so their intelligence is not dominating their social circles. This is done just to make sure their intelligence isn’t an elephant in the room.
