Don't Feel Bad For Your High Sex Drive...It Probably Just Shows You're Intelligent
Try explaining this one to your parents.
Intelligent people are more likely to be nocturnal than people with lower IQ scores, according to Psychology Today. Sleeping patterns and IQ average are correlated regardless of age, and those with high IQs tend to go to sleep and wake up about half an hour later than those with lower IQs.
Research from the National Child Development Study concluded that intelligent children in the U.K. are more likely to consume psychoactive drugs in their adult years, than less intelligent children. Another study revealed that adults who scored high on IQ tests as children were more likely to experiment with illegal substances as adults
A study also conducted in the U.K. found that young people at top schools like Oxford and Cambridge spent more money on sex toys than students at "non-elite" universities. Researchers concluded that since sex is a natural stress reliever, intelligent students take advantage of it to lower stress levels.
This isn't to say that every intelligent person stays up late, does drugs and buys sex toys, but perhaps the studies have concluded that intelligent people tend to be more open and adaptable.
