According to a recent study, one of our favourites thus far, being lazy is a sign of intelligence.
Research from the Journal of Health Psychology shows that people with higher IQ’s get bored less easily and like to sit around and just think!
People with lower IQ’s need to be more active to give their brain’s constant stimulation because they either want to think less and/or get bored easily.
In a study conducted by Florida Gulf Course University, participants were asked to choose statements they most agreed with like, “I only think as hard as I have to” or “I really enjoy a task that involves coming up with a solution to new problems”. Based on these answers they categorized people as “thinkers” or “non-thinkers” and then monitored them to see how active they were for a few weeks.
Apparently if you’re really messy, stay up late, and swear then you also have a high IQ. So that’s good news.
