5 struggles that prove you are highly intelligent.
In the real world, spotting intelligent people isn’t quite simple. While we all like to believe that we possess high levels of intelligence, deciphering the competence of our brain power can be tricky. Most people regard highly intelligent people as super humans who have it all figured out simply because their brains can help them in any life situation. Sometimes, even you the intelligent cant understand what it is with you. In order to help you feel acknowledged and understood, here are some of your most common struggles.
1. It is hard for you to fall in love

If you are feeling uncomfortable during small talk, refrain from speaking if not sure, don’t get inspired by old and exhausted ideas, or if you feel more comfortable with ideas than execution, people tend to characterize you as socially awkward.
