People Break Down Which Behaviors Scream 'I'm Not That Smart'

One should never be fooled by a first impression.

Certain people might behave in a way that is less than indicative of what they are actually like, and might prove to be far more impressive, or much less friendly, once you get to know them a little better.

However, sometimes people will behave in a certain way which leaves one unable to avoid making assumptions about people.

Namely, their intelligence.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to hear what behavioral traits the Reddit community took as a sign of possessing a considerable lack of intelligence, leading them to ask:

"What are some behaviors that scream unintelligence?"


An unwillingness to learn

"I feel like the classic example is being unable to change your opinion or idea when you are presented with new information."

"You don’t have to set everything you believe in stone."- Rusty_of_Shackleford

"I think a key thing that separates the intelligent from the less intelligent is curiosity and how far you actually go to learn."- TuxedoWolf07

When even they don't know what they're talking about.

"Maybe not unintelligence but ignorance."

"People getting angry when I ask them to explain what they just meant as I want to understand them and not misunderstand."- smokinstuff·

"Getting angry when someone ask them to explain their point."- SuvenPan

It's never attractive to gloat

"Obsessively telling everybody how intelligent you are."- terribleUsername18

It's ok to admit defeat every now and then...

"Playing 'last word' in an argument you've lost."- LennonMcCartney65

"Being defensive when corrected instead of just accepting it."- Marthstewart123

"Claiming they are always right but not being able to argument why or have a serious debate about it."- GReatChinook

Are you sure about that?

"Constantly saying 'facts' that are extremely false."

"Gets on my nerves."- Sharkifish

Read the instructions!!!

"I just started driving for UberXL."

"The amount of people who think they can fit 8 people with all their luggage into a midsize SUV is astonishing."

"You can see which car comes to pick you up and it says fits 5 people."

"If you have a piece of luggage each then it's more like 3 people."

"I had one group sit there and stare me down like they didn't understand."

"I swear some people just have a mental limit for figuring things out and they all find each other and never get anywhere."- predict_irrational

One should always reserve judgment, as one never knows for sure what lurks beneath the surface.

Even if more often and not, you are left with little to nothing which encourages you to see what's there.


People Break Down Which Foods No Longer Taste As Good As They Used To

Like lots of kids growing up, I did love my candy and my sugar. Truth be told, I wasn't allowed to have as much as I would have liked, but that doesn't mean I didn't sneak some candies whenever I had the opportunity.

Now that I'm older though? My taste buds just aren't the same.

I can't stomach too much of anything super sweet and the idea of chowing down on candy and chocolate the way I see some kids do pretty much grosses me out.

My body thanks me, though!

"What food doesn't taste as good as it used to?"

It's really no secret that most children think their parents are super uncool.

Because of course they are.

Parents didn't have lives or dreams of their own before they had children, right? How could they possibly ever have been fun?

That's sarcasm, by the way. Most people grow out of this attitude, and it usually disappears by the time a kid gets through their teenage years, when pretty much anything their parents do turns their faces red with embarrassment.

But suppose you, the parents, wanted to embarrass your kids anyway, say by reviving a slang term or two?

People shared their thoughts after Redditor the-tinman asked the online community,

"What are some slang terms a 50 year old dad can say to his daughter to embarrass her?"

It's always sad when people don't have anything better to do than throw insults at people.

And yet it happens far too often, between people who see each other on a fairly regular basis, as well as complete strangers.

It's always a good idea to avoid sinking to their level when this happens, and just ignore them and walk on by.

That being said, there is very little more satisfying than coming back at them with just the right choice of words, and leaving them in stunned silence.

Being diagnosed with cancer is news no one ever wants to hear.

For some people, the diagnosis might come as a surprise, with no signs or warnings whatsoever.

Others, however might have detected some irregularities, or suffered from symptoms which led them to believe something wasn't quite right, leading them to run to a doctor.

Only to have their worst fears realized.
