Science Says Intelligent People Have These 3 Bad Habits in Common

Bad habits

The following three bad habits – messiness, staying up late and swearing, often are considered to be signs of laziness, as well as bad manners and failure.

But, some recent studies have different findings. Who would have thought this?

If you identify yourself with these features, you should find out more on the following lines:

Staying Late

An article published in Psychology Today, claims that humans could ignore their biological clock as well as its rhythms. All animals have one thing which is called circadian rhythm, which tells you when to go to sleep and when to wake up. Humans also have it, but we can change the pace.

So, humans can practically choose whether they want to be morning people or night owls. Is it cool?

As stated in the same article, a significant probability exists that more intelligent children grow up to be nocturnal than less intelligent. This means that staying up late at night may not be such a bad sign.


There was also another study published in Huffington Post has proved that people who swear have a vaster vocabulary. They have examined participants from ages 18 – 22 and they have asked them to name taboo words with a particular letter in limited time, and then they were asked to name animals in the same way. It turned out that the ones that knew more swear words that had an overall better vocabulary.

They have even examined the effect of swearing, and it also turns out that it relieves pain and stress, both emotional and physical. So, if swearing can take the pain away, should it be considered as bad?

Tidy or Messy?

The next discovery may be the most important one of them all. A psychologist at the University of Minnesota has discovered that people that have messy rooms also have some more creative thoughts.

Messy room, according to them, is a sign that you are thinking out of the box. For instance, if your clothes should all be in the closet, but are actually on the floor and around the room,  means that you are thinking unconventionally and not like everybody else.

Now you can understand  Einstein’s quote:

“if a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, then what does an empty desk mean?”

So, you should forget thinking like everybody else, as well as leave your things lying around.

Laurel Thatcher Ulrich once said that “well – behaved women seldom make history.”

And she was right about this.

This quote can also be extended to men too. You should forget all that you have learned before about not swearing, as well as keep your room clean and do not stay up too late.

According to these new studies, those people that swear have messy rooms and also stay up late, so they are more intelligent than the ones that do not.
