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.

Everyone has friends who you become less and less close to with each passing year.

This isn't always by choice, though, but simply by circumstance, when your lives both take different directions.

In some cases, however, we do find ourselves making a very conscious decision to stop spending time with certain friends.

Owing to the fact that these people might not be our friends after all.

In certain cases, the communication ends as the result of one specific moment.

We all have songs that we can't get out of our heads, resulting in our randomly humming them while walking down the street.

Among the most infectious songs are theme songs to TV shows.

Be it from tuning in every week to catch up with Friends who will always" be there for [us]", or being "stuck in the middle" of a Grace And Frankie binge, we often find ourselves humming the theme songs of our favorite shows more often than we find ourselves quoting the best lines.

Even if it means humming an infectious melody to a wordless piece of music (Will & Grace or Seinfeld anyone?)

Who hasn't had a moment when they learned what they thought was a revelatory piece of information, ran to share it with their friends, and were then greeted by a barrage of stone faces?

Owing to the fact that what we only just learned a few minutes ago, was apparently common knowledge.

These include your favorite movie star was in fact the offspring of another movie star, what gelatin is actually made of, or little tricks and strategies which make certain experiences so much more pleasurable.

For no particular reason, some people learn these things far later than just about everyone else.

I'm a simple person when it comes to video games.

I prefer to go with nostalgia.

All of these fancy deals put me on sensory overload.

But my goodness the technology really has come a long way.

And there are actual storylines and drama.

Good for y'all gamers.
