Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
How many of you out there are left-handed?
I am, and so is my wife. Did you know that being left-handed is one of the thirteen signs that you’re probably smart?
Not braggin’. Just sayin’.
If you happen to be right-handed, there’s still hope. Here are some of the other traits of smartfolk:
You took music lessons.
You’re the oldest sibling in your family.
You have a cat.
You were breastfed.
You’ve used recreational drugs. (What?)
You drink alcohol regularly. (What?)
You’re politically liberal.
You learned to read early.
You worry a lot.
These are backed up by actual and true scientific studies. If you don’t have any of them, you can blame the scientific method. Or start using drugs.
Now, I have several of these in my armamentarium, but other than being left-handed I won’t say which ones. Intelligence is a relative thing, and it’s also subject to specialization. For instance, I used to know a guy who wasn’t all that bright but he could take apart any machine and put it back together in better condition than it was in before — blindfolded. I can’t even figure out how a Thermos keeps things hot or cold!
So. Care to do an inventory? How many of these do you have in your deck of smarty-pants traits?
