10 Reasons Why It’s Hard for a Smart Person to Be Happy



Did you know that the most intelligent people are usually the least happy individuals among us? If you can relate to most of the signs of a smart person we’ve put together, you must have a high IQ, but might be rather unhappy in life. Follow professional advice of leading experts in psychology to transform your life in a positive way.
People with a high IQ continuously analyze the events of their lives. Their findings are often full of fear and disappointment, with real dilemmas constantly popping up in their heads. The habit of constant overanalyzing leads to frequent reflections about life, death and the meaning of existence. All this, in most cases, leads to depression. Try to distract yourself from having negative thoughts and focus on the positive. You can also try keeping a diary and writing about the things you’re thankful for every single day. Anytime you’re feeling down, just open it, and it’ll put a smile on your face.
According to scientists, socializing for highly intelligent people is often a more painful experience than being alone. Find ways to make new acquaintances whose company you genuinely enjoy and appreciate family members who sincerely love you.
A recent study has shown that, in their daily life, intellectuals make just as many mistakes as everyone else! Scientist Igor Grossman of the University of Waterloo suggests that such people should talk about their problems in the third person in order to emotionally distance themselves. This reduces bias and allows them to reach the most logical conclusions.
The assumption that every smart person is successful couldn’t be more inaccurate. In fact, studies have shown that 85% of financial well-being depends things such as individuality and the ability to communicate and negotiate. No big brain or certain IQ number on that list.
