    As what I've seen; Extremely arrogant, lazy, could make you disappear in shame with just two words. And on the other side, you got the extremely awkward, anti-social and weird in any kind of way person. Many things are depending on the character anyway on how you use and deal with it.

    Could be connected to boredom w/what people tend to say (and not say).

    As I thought, people with a high iq are more reserved and sometimes see themselves strangely, which is why many scientists are considered insane.

    I feel as though arrogance is not a distinguishing mark of high intelligence. It is a ruse to present oneself as such. However, you can tell if someone has a high IQ by having a 10 minute conversation with them. Some people are just more clever than others, in social situations. However, the mask always falls away.


    Being erudite is different, it is what arrogant people falsely try to emulate. You can be intelligent without being a jerk, or socially inept.


    Being mean to others, and laziness is not necessarily being stupid. Though I would probably say there is a higher chance that the person is. Rather, it more indicates that this person is projecting some kind of internal emotional turbulence on others, and has no discipline.

    Also, some people who are smart in one subject, may be lacking in others. When I was in school, I often heard math and science majors denigrate people in other disciplines. I thought to myself, how empty and soulless are these people? Moreover, how dumb are they not to see that subjects like art, music, history, etc, are what makes life worth living! In recent years, I have spent a lot of time at the Met Opera, and Art museum. This is where all of the wealthy, successful, and intelligent people go and become patrons, to promote high culture. People who have the inability to appreciate or understand the importance of the arts, are either missing a piece of their humanity, or they are in fact stupid, imo. That, or they consume some low-brow derivative of higher culture, of which they are too ignorant to realize come from subjects they denigrate.

    High IQ people tend to be more well-rounded.

    For example, the ability to resist ill-wishers. Dealing with "difficult" people is annoying and exhausting. People with a high level of intelligence completely control the process of interacting with ill-wishers by analyzing their feelings. He does not allow emotions to take hold of him, does not fall into anger, and does not fuel conflict. He tries to understand the point of view of the interlocutor and find a solution that will satisfy everyone.

    Well, let me put it in a simple and a bit funny way, if I can contribute here:

    What characterizes high IQ people the most is usually an ignorance if not an alergy to EQ and SQ

    for these, of course, unveil the fact that the IQ is much more a cult of our short-sighted civilization than something realy important. We can all see where the Inteligence-cult lead us since last 2 centuries while the effect of IQ-emphasis on our relations (E) and the meaning (S) of our lives obviously caused an unprecedented exploitation and destruction humankind ever suffered. Now when this (Inteligence) is already "artificialized" to finally develop genetics-based weapons of mass destruction (patented as e.g. SARS family) to guarantee the profit of $1000+ per second we can say we finally know it is probably NOT the path we should and must further follow: Hopefully it is not too late. We as humankind can still disclose those (aaprox) 8 names (or some billions?) of fatally sick people to whom all this profit and "benefit" flows to start healing their Souls - else they will soon "heal" all the rest of us with some remaining E- an SQ.

    I am urging you to think about how you act around people who have significantly lower IQs than you.
