The test was reconducted   five years later, obese subjects' cognitive recall dropped to 37.5 percent, whereas their thinner counterparts retained their level of recall.

This is to say thin people turn to be smarter than obese or fat ones,So if you don't fit amongs the thinnner people,you totally need to work out your BMI and get smart

5 You're a liberal or an atheist.

they have    shown to be more intelligent than conservatives or religious types, says Satoshi Kanazawa an evolutionary psychologist.
The reasoning goes that liberals and atheists tend to show superiority or elitism, which is linked with higher IQ. Aligning your values and beliefs to progressive and nonconformist ideals may be ways to express to others that you're smarter than the average bear.

4 You're tall.

Studies from Princeton University says   taller people earn more because they are smarter. 
This was backed by another study that says a 6-foot-tall person earns, on average, nearly $166,000 more during a 30-year career span than someone who is 5 feet 5 inches, regardless of gender, age, and weight.because tall people have  greater self esteem and a very social confidence as compare to shorter people.

3 You're a night owl rather early bird

2 You're left-handed.

In 2013,The New yorkers reported that psychiatrists from the University of Athens determined that lefties had faster and more accurate spatial skills, mental flexibility, and enhanced working memory.

They're   "divergent thinkers" a specific kind of creativity that gives lefties the ability to generate novel ideas on a whim.

1 You're curious.

Even Albert Einstein famously said, "I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious."

The Harvard Business Review reports that people with a higher "curiosity quotient" (CQ) tend to be more inquisitive and generate more original ideas, and this "thinking style" leads to higher levels of knowledge acquisition over time.
Curiosity quotient"is the ultimate tool to produce simple solutions for complex problems."

So if you posesses any of this   characteristics,you are probably smarter than you think you are!
