    5 Signs You're Much Smarter than Average  |  LinkedIn, Dr. Travis Bradberry                                05/01/2016
     Intelligence, or IQ, isn’t what you know, but rather the pace at which you acquire new
     information. Longitudinal studies have shown that IQ is fixed at an early age, so you’re
     stuck with what you’ve got. 
While IQ is far from being the only thing that determines
     success in life—research shows that it isn’t even the most important factor—a high IQ
     still isn’t a bad thing to have. In fact, I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t mind having one.

     8 Things Smart People Never Reveal About Themselves At Work

     At work, sharing the right aspects of yourself in the right ways is an art form.
     Disclosures that feel like relationship builders in the moment can wind up as obvious
     no-nos with hindsight.
     Trouble is, you can’t build a strong professional network if you don’t open up to your
     colleagues. Doing so is 
tricky, because revealing the wrong things can have a
     devastating effect on your career.

      9 Phrases Smart People NEVER Use in Conversation

We’ve all said things that people interpreted much differently than we thought they
    would. These seemingly benign comments lead to the awful feeling that only comes
    when you’ve planted your foot firmly into your mouth.
    Verbal slip-ups often occur because we say things without knowledge of the subtle
    implications they carry. Understanding these implications requires social awareness
    — the ability to pick up on the emotions and experiences of other people.

Everybody makes mistakes—that’s a given—but not everyone learns from them. Some
     people make the same mistakes over and over again, fail to make any real progress, and
     can’t figure out why.
