Sometimes there comes a challenge or a task in life that proves far too hard for you tackle or solve. While trying to wrap your head around the tough facts that present themselves in front of you, you might actually start to question your intelligence or even doubt it all together.

This feeling of mental inadequacy tends to happen even to the best of us. There's a sage quote by Bertrand Russell that states "The fundamental cause of the trouble in the modern world today is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt". This could be what's happening to you at this particular moment.

Here is the list of some of the things that you might have ignored or even considered weird that indicate that you have a super bright mind:

#1 The realization of just how much you don't know

This sounds weird I know. However, as contradictory as it may sound a truly intelligent person will easily admit how much he doesn't know. This allows him to figure out a plan of knowing some of these unknown variables. Therefore, lack of surety is not necessarily a bad thing.

#2 Sticking to the same routine

This might manifest in your sense of fashion, eating habits or general characteristic. Psychologist Oliver Burkeman in a research of the lifestyle of the brightest men in the world, concluded that smart people tend to save up their creative abilities for more important things.

#3 Telepathic tendencies

By this, I mean that you can actually feel what others are thinking. When engaged in a conversation with a friend or a colleague and they stutter upon a word and somehow you always manage to finish the thought or find the right word that they were looking for. Then this could be a sign that you're an extremely intelligent person.

#4 Having a high level of self control

The ability to control our instincts is basically what sets us apart from the rest of the animal kingdom. So anyone who's exceptionally good at keeping their emotions in check and in a healthy way could be considered to be highly intelligent. These are people who set their minds to achieving a certain goal and manage to pull this off without giving in to the numerous distractions along the way.

#5 When you're upset you know what's bothering you

This could show that you actually have a high level of emotional intelligence. There are times when things don't seem quite right about our day, some call them bad days. These happens when a certain thought actually just ruins our whole day, some people actually can never figure out what it is that's giving them such a bad mood. An intelligent person can pinpoint the exact cause of their distress.

#6 The act of talking to yourself

This act is normally viewed as a sign of madness across various quarters, which sometimes might be true. However, it could also signal a genius. Highly intelligent people use this technique as a method of singling out important ideas from the junk of wild thoughts running around in their brains. Listening to your own voice helps you understand yourself better.

#7 Background noise irritates you

A genius hates any kind of background noise because it prevents them from concentrating on important issues. So if you find yourself feeling irritated by your noisy neighbors often, then this could be a sign that you're actually a very intelligent person.

#8 Jumbled scribblings

Having a messy handwriting could be a sign that you are a highly intelligent person. Ever noticed how doctors and some high level professionals jot down some of their writings? So next time someone doesn't understand what you're writing, just smile and kindly explain this sweet coincidence to them.
