People with higher intelligence have fewer friends than others. The smarter the person, the natural tendency will be to be surrounded by fewer people and only choose those relationships of higher quality, no matter the quantity. These are the main reasons why these people live in such a way. 

Smart people have fewer friends

People who are more intelligent tend to have a certain behavior that makes them different, they are often more isolated than others, and have stronger needs for solitude than other people, for them it is more important to find space for themselves than to find friendships to hang out, nothing more.

1. They are very deep in their thoughts

Intelligent people are involved in their own speeches, thoughts and actions, which can be contrary to those of their “friends”. His mind is not limited and he always has something to say. They think differently from others, but are not bothered by their opinions about it and prefer to give more free rein to their own thoughts.

2. They stay away from meaningless conversations

They don’t have time for forced fake adaptations or mindless conversations, trying to keep up with what everyone is doing. So they mostly spend time alone. He does not care about the latest trends or trendy music. He is not interested in materialistic things. They also have no FOMO (fear of missing something from social media or events), so they are quite happy to do their thing. Your world seems to flourish more on its own.

3. They know how to recognize stakeholders

They can see past people’s false appearances, and they know when to distance themselves from people who aren’t worth it. These opportunistic people are what can be called “social climbers.” They try to get involved with certain people simply because they are popular or simply to look good; but an intelligent person knows how to recognize and stay away from people like that, who are usually always surrounded by very superficial “friends”.

4. They talk less and listen more

They usually stay on the sidelines and without intervening. They sit back observing the norms of today: the constant publication on social networks, the masks and masks, the unfair partners and the disrespectful behavior. They are disappointed because they are much more mature and perceive the reality around them more deeply. They are humble and encouraging, but they do not give their time and trust to people who do not deserve it.

5. They don’t get involved in the drama

They do not prosper as others do. Family is more important to them, but it’s not just about family in the orthodox sense of the word, but about the people they consider to be their true family. They prefer to do things according to their own terms or will and prefer to have a good time without getting into unnecessary drama.

6. They don’t need to prove themselves to anyone

Very intelligent people are happy with themselves, independent and strong, they can support themselves and do not usually trust others very much. They don’t need to wake up to encouragement from others or social media approval of their thoughts or philosophy. They are grateful for the little things. They don’t feel the need to be accepted by anyone but themselves.

7. They recognize the true friend

You have already discovered who your true friends are, so they don’t feel the need to have any new ones. They are aware of who is curious and who is concerned. They are very cautious when they let someone into their lives. They choose people who share their same values, and with whom they can enrich the moments in company.

8. They are “old souls”

Very intelligent people are uncomfortable telling their dreams to closed-minded or superficial people. They work hard to achieve their goals and have no time for setbacks. The approach of a very intelligent person is different, they have more transcendent interests than just hanging out. Your time is being invested in growth. They don’t expect people to understand what they are doing. Eventually, they will be able to see it for themselves without arguing.
