New Study Reveals Why Intelligent People Are Usually Loners

Ah, it’s all starting to make sense now. I was wondering why everyone is always telling me that I’m a loner and that I like to fly solo, it’s because they picked up on the fact that I’m a genius.

Okay, maybe that’s not the case, but as it turns out, intelligent people usually are better off by themselves according to a recent study that was published in the British Journal of Psychology.

Evolutionary psychologists Kanazawa and Li conducted a study that focused on answering one question: what constitutes a life ‘well-lived’ and how do intelligence, population density and friendships affect one’s overall happiness?

Their study looked at 15,000 adults between the ages of 18 and 28, theorizing that the lifestyles of our ancient ancestors make up the basis for much of what makes the modern-day human happy.

They first discovered that people who lived in densely populated areas, like cities, were less satisfied overall when compared to those who live in less densely populated regions. Secondly, they found that people who were more social with their close friends had greater levels of happiness.

However, they also found that this correlation seemed to be counter-intuitive when looking at the results for intelligent people. Smart people tended to be less happy when spending time with their friends and family.

But why would that be the case?

Carol Graham, a researcher of the economics of happiness, offers one explanation: “The findings in here suggest (and it is no surprise) that those with more intelligence and the capacity to use it… are less likely to spend so much time socializing because they are focused on some other longer term objective.”

Basically, intelligent people are highly focused on their intelligent goals, and taking time away from those goals tends to make them less happy. According to Kanazawa and Li, there may be some imbalances in the brain and the body of modern humans, as our lifestyles have changed so dramatically in such a short amount of time, relatively speaking.

So, do you consider yourself an intelligent person? Do you feel that you’d rather spend time alone, or that spending time with friends and family makes you feel unhappy? Share and see what others have to say about these findings.

  1. I'm so happy to get a chance to find and read such post!! I'm also so excited about the painting class you are taking, you will have to send lots of pictures of what you create. Here and there, it is about the adaptability of words, a specialist can make use of. It is an inside work of master schools or courses to convey best essay writing for students.


  2. Perfect! A hard thing is to explain to the people why you do the things the way you do. In our mind it is clear that to expend time talking about the same subject everyday, nothing new, makes no sense.

  3. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
