You can take any test, and even the latest IQ test and fail, but that still doesn't mean that you're not a genius. In fact, there are all sorts of surprising indicators that could be alerting you and others around you that you're a freaking genius, and you don't even know it yet.
There are a number of ways for a person to exhibit signs that they are actually a lot smarter than they've been led to believe. Most of these clues come in the form of certain challenges or behaviors that could be attributed to intellectual pursuits. Who knows, you might know someone who's the next Einstein or you could be the next Stephen Hawkins yourself.
#1. You question everything rather than just take everyone's word for it.
If you’re curious about everything and doubt even the deepest facts of existence or the universe itself, you could be looking at subtle signs of higher intelligence.
#2. You're messy, because chaos often brings plenty of creativity.
Contrary to popular belief, being messy isn’t necessarily a sign of laziness. All that chaos in your own environment helps you to explore brand new creative venues.
#3. You doodle, but it's not because you're bored, but rather because you're creative.
Your hand seems to have a mind of its own, but in fact, it’s your own brain, conscious or otherwise expressing the inner creative form that’s hidden deep inside of you.
#4. Your brain is a little Swiss cheese. Oh hell, let's face it, you're a scatterbrain.
That’s fine though, because your brain is flooded with so much information that sometimes you can be overwhelmed and forget things. Just look at the absent minded professor from Disney. Sure, he was a genius, but he couldn’t remember a date if his life depended on it.
#5. You're socially awkward and isolated like Sheldon from the "Big Bang Theory."
You’re more of an information seeker and you tend to think too much, so the thought of actually developing social skills seems like a huge waste of time.
