Study: Smart People Need More Time Alone

A new study conducted by evolutionary psychologists from Singapore Management University and the London School of Economics and Political Science found that smart people need more time alone. I guess that means that, while all the smart people are off being hermits, all of us dumb bastards should get busy partying! big grin

Smarter people can more easily adapt to their surroundings in the modern world, so they don’t need close relationships to help them with food and shelter, like our ancestors did. Or, in the modern equivalent, the Wi-Fi password and a spare phone charger. Their other theory is that smarter people are more aspirational, and want to spend more time working towards their goals, rather than socialising.
