Signs include being an avid reader and having the ability to learn from mistakes

Intelligent people can also argue from every single viewpoint

Thinking before you speak and not thinking about judgement are also signs  

You may think that a high IQ and bilingual tongue are sure signs of intellect but experts have shared the genuine signs of intelligence - and they're rather surprising.

From being an avid reader to having the ability to learn from your mistakes, psychologists share the clues of authentic intelligence.

My Domaine has rounded up the top signs, so how many do you possess?  

1. You learn from your mistakes

Psychological studies prove that smart people are the ones who can recognise and accept their failures - and, crucially, learn from them.

Rather than viewing mistakes as setbacks, intelligent people see them as learning curves and opportunities to grow. 

2. You read for fun

People who are avid readers and pour over a good book for pleasure rather than actively trying to seek out new knowledge are naturally more intelligent.

According to research, these avid readers have better memory function, communication skills, and focus.

3. You can argue against anyone 

Arguing is a sure-fire sign of intelligence - but it's the way in which you do it that sets you apart from others.

SIGNS OF REAL INTELLIGENCE  

You learn from mistakes

You read for fun

You can argue against anyone

You think before you speak

You don't care what others think 

Travis Bradberry, author of Emotional Intelligence 2.0, says those who argue articulately and convincingly - and can argue from every angle - are more gifted. 

It isn't just those who can argue from their point of view, but from everyone else's, that have genuine intelligence.  

4. You think before you speak

Truly intelligent people have a brain that is quicker than their mouth.

If you take your time to answer people's questions and think them through to provide a genuine answer that you've thought about, you're one step ahead. 

5. You don't care what others think 

Seriously intelligent people don't consider other people when making decisions.

They don't think about how others will feel as a result of their own actions and do things irregardless of other people's judgement.
