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 Describe The Scariest Movies They've Ever Seen

You might say moviegoers who love horror films are sadists.

They derive pleasure from being spooked and terrified, and they somehow love crouching in their seats out of sheer fright watching supernatural entities scaring the daylights out of homeowners or serial killers stalking their prey.

It's all an adrenaline rush.

However, even gore and slasher fans have their limits.

In the recent Pride and Prejudice update Fire Island, Dex leads the main character Noah to believe that the stand-offish lawyer Will judges him for having an OnlyFans page.

A site that has become commonly used for amateur and professional porn performers and sex workers to directly profit from erotic and sexual content they upload themselves.

As is the case with their literary counterparts, Darcy and Wickham, Will's apathy towards Dex runs much deeper than his OnlyFans page.

But Will wouldn't be the first person to judge someone for utilizing the site as a means of income.

Several people might also stop their romantic pursuits of those who decide to upload x-rated content as a side (or primary) hustle.

Others, however, might not have a problem with it, and might even join them in their endeavors.

I know that many of you love the chili from a certain fast-food restaurant that rhymes with "Bendy's," but I'm here to tell you that that stuff is not fresh. Not one bit.

Okay, that statement might not hold true from franchise to franchise, but it's something worth thinking about.

Sorry to burst your bubble: This is a dark secret I've carried inside me for more than a decade.

Keep in mind: It was tasty. Quite. But it did sit out for a while. Didn't stop the customers from eating it though, and they were happy and I was paid for my work and that was that.

But there are other job secrets out there that you might not be aware of.

People shared the deets with us after Redditor You_are_a_dolt asked the online community,

"What’s a trade secret you know from working the industry?"

There are many cases where a company or product promises good quality or intentions.

But that isn't always the case as some companies fail to deliver and they make off with your hard-earned cash.

In an instantly gratifying world, consumers are quick to go after the things they want with the click of a button as long as they have the funds.

But they should keep a close eye on where their money is going toward.
