Sure, intelligent people are intelligent but that does not mean they are faultless. Even the most intelligent people have a few bad habits.

We all act in some of the worst ways here and there, whether we intend to or not. This is just a part of life. A person can do shitty things and still be good just like a person can do a nice thing and still be shitty. We are all who we are and there is no changing that without making the changes within.

Intelligent people for those who may be a bit confused are people that have a good amount of mental ability. They can solve problems and work through most situations with ease whether they are book smart or not. Below I am going to go over some of the bad habits intelligent people tend to have. If you are an intelligent person facing any of these things, don’t assume it makes you any less intelligent. We all have our bad habits and they can all be worked through if we put our minds to it and work hard enough.

9 Bad Habits Intelligent People Tend to Have:

1. They tend to make some of the biggest messes.

Sometimes, the most intelligent people make the worst messes for themselves. This could be an actual mess or a mental mess. They tend to be plagued by drama more so than you’d think. While they are usually quite interesting their messes are much messier than they should be.

2. They tend to complain chronically.

Sometimes the most intelligent people complain the most. Sure, we all complain but they can really dish it out. Chronic complaining doesn’t get anyone anywhere and should be dealt with before it gets to this point.

3. They tend to be stubborn when it comes to asking for help.

Sometimes the most intelligent people just don’t know how to ask for help. Sure, they might need help but they won’t come to you for it. They are just too stubborn for their own good sometimes.

4. They tend to be procrastinators.

Sometimes the most intelligent people put things off till last minute time and time again. I know several people like this. They can get things done quickly and so they put things off until they are almost out of time to do them. This is all fine and dandy but what if something comes up and you miss your deadline?

5. They tend to set their expectations way too high.

Sometimes the most intelligent people expect too much from the people around them and the world in general. This place is not all it is cracked up to be. If you set your expectations too high you will end up falling much lower than you ever have before.

6. They tend to curse like a sailor.

Sometimes the most intelligent people have some of the worst potty mouths. While you might not assume this the more you get to know them the more they open up with this kind of thing and this means of speaking. The more you get to know them the more they will be willing to pop out those swear words.

7. They tend to take on too much.

Sometimes the most intelligent people tend to take on too much. They work too hard and let themselves fall through the cracks. When it comes to things like this they really need to ask for help but they also really suck at that as well.

8. They tend to spend too much time being overly serious.

Sometimes the most intelligent people tend to spend too much time being serious. They refuse to let their sensitive sides out and they don’t ever normally spend any time being funny or cutting up. Spending all your time being serious is only going to make you miserable.

9. They tend to be surprisingly impulsive.

Sometimes the most intelligent people tend to really be much more impulsive than you’d think they would be. They rely more on their instincts than they should and it sometimes bites them in the ass. They let their impulsiveness really get the best of them here and there.
