Scientists suspect that two relevant properties can provide an indication of intelligence.

A completely different IQ test?

Try it.

Do you fancy a different IQ test?

This one, unlike many other IQ tests, is not about thinking or knowledge questions.

Rather, it's about

personality

.

It is about those

characteristics

that, according to a study by the scientists Norman P. Li and Satoshi Kanazawa, published in the British Journal of Psychlogy, are a sign of high intelligence.

Two questions can be derived from this.

IQ test: two questions about personality

How would you answer these two questions?

1. Question

:

Do you find it depressing to live in a place where you are surrounded by many people?

Answer A: Yes.

Answer B: No.

2. Question: Do you like to meet your friends as often as possible - instead of just now and then?

Answer A: Yes.

Answer B: No.

IQ test: According to researchers, these are the answers

According to the scientists, these answers are a sign of intelligence:

They are entitled to

the first question

, the

answer B

is selected?

That would be entirely in the spirit of the study.

Because intelligent people, at least claim the authors, basically have no problem with living in cities with high population densities.

In other words: intelligent people would have adapted to modern life.

With

regard to

the

second question

, one may at least believe the scientists,

answer B

suggests special intelligence.

According to the tenor of the study, particularly intelligent people usually have fewer

friends

and would also like

to

spend

time alone

.

However, that doesn't say anything about the quality of friendships;

the few friendships could be all the more intimate.
