8 Signs You’re Really A Smart Person, Even Though You Might Not Think So

We live in a world that depends on technology more than ever before. We outsource our knowledge to technology and make less effort to reinvent ourselves and to discover our hidden talents. Before cell phones, we memorized all our emergency phone numbers and frequent contacts. Now with cell phones, some people don’t even know their own phone number; they always have to look it up when it is asked for.

We are all unique and smart in different areas but most people do not know how smart they are. They settle for less because they do not know their values. In his book The Time Warrior, Steve Chandler referred to this group as the unconscious competent; people who do the right thing without knowing. If the list below identifies you, then you’re really smart, even though you don’t think so.

3. You’re results oriented

You do not do things just to stay busy, you do the right thing right. You consider some opportunities as disruptions, so you focus only on those opportunities that create the best results in your life.

6. You’re reliable

If people always ask you for favors, chances are you are the most reliable person in their lives. Does your boss always call you for over-time, or have you ever got a raise that you didn’t ask for, or offered a promotion, or been the only person to whom a particular task is always assigned to, or are you always considered as the one who should know better? If you answered yes to any one of those questions, congratulations. You are reliable. Nobody would waste their time to rely on you if you aren’t reliable.

7. You’re constantly improving

“If you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse” – Brian Tracy.

The Japanese call constant improvement Kaizen. You love making new discoveries and you believe that making constant improvements in your life keeps you updated and prevents your best knowledge from becoming obsolete.

8. You’re healthy

Health is the most important characteristic of a smart person on this list. Without good health, all the above characteristics would be a eulogy. Your health is the most important thing in your life, taking good care of yourself is the only way you can live long enough to enjoy the rest of your life. You can accomplish anything you want in life, but you could lose it all if you don’t pay attention to your health. Staying healthy is your ultimate goal.
