Why Are Anti-Social People Usually Smart

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

Just been wondering.... why are the anti-social people usually the smart ones. I used to have a classmate and she doesn't really interact that much, but at the same time she's really really smart. And also when I read books the people who are anti-social usually really smart.

 

Is there a reason for this?

I don't think what you're suggesting is a proven theory. But a quick logical deduction may be that they spend more time studying than they do socialising?

well yeah... one could say, but i'm not talking about like "knowledgeable" i'm saying they're like wise, i guess... or resourceful would be a more appropriate word.
 

i noticed that people like them, anti-social, i guess would be a word, are smart, yes, knowledgeable, yes, but most importantly, they're resourceful. they can see things in different ways and perspectives, and use methods in a completely unique and creative way.

I talked about it with a friend of mine once, and what he said was that, "maybe it's because that their right brain is more active, making them more of a creative thinker." i agreed at that time, failing to notice that with the right brain also comes interpersonal skills; ergo, it might not be possible. but still, it's not something that i am sure of, and just a conclusion.
