Shocking series of studies have come out showing that intelligent people stay up later and do more drugs. The people in our society who have the highest IQs are noctural and enjoy indulging in drugs.
The Study will completely change the way you think about intelligence and behavior.
Intelligent and Sleep
In a study published in Personality and Individual Differences, researchers proposed the hypothesis that people who are of high intelligence tend to sleep and wake up about half an hour later than those with lower IQ levels.
They found that intelligent people are not only more likely to be liberal and free thinkers, they are also more likely to have different circadian rhythms (sleep cycles). The higher the IQ, the later they tend to stay up. And these results were concluded from a sample of over 20,000 people.
Intelligent and Drugs
An even more surprising finding on intelligent people is the fact that they are more likely to experiment with drugs. According to a study conducted by the National Child Development, children with high IQs are more likely to consume psychoactive drugs in their adult years than those with lower IQs.
Another study published in 2012 came upon the exact same discovery that intelligent children were more likely to use cannabis, amphetamines, and magic mushrooms later in life.
Intelligent people turn out to have quite different habits and lifestyles. Studies like these are interesting already because they break common stereotypes and give us the opportunity to look at things from a different perspective.
