Do you believe that people with high IQs are generally introverts?

Is it okay to make such a generalization? If so, is it because they are introverts that they possess high IQs or is it because they possess high IQs that makes them introverts? or is it just a lie told to make the introverts feel good about themselves? what do you think? 

yes

Yep. Highly intelligent people are more self aware and aware of threats, where an average to less intelligent person many times just mindlessly carries on and on and befriends anyone and everyone without any discernment. The only reason there appears to be any exceptions is that some highly intelligent people use said intelligence to figure out or learn how to interact with "normal people" and learn social skills to get an advantage in business or life. I got into social dynamics by looking at it like a science experiment.

Having Asperger's, I'm personally aware of the (by no means universal) connection between the two. It's entirely possible that the stereotype of the socially inept genius originated from the disease.

Did you ever have to work with the general public? If so, then you may have noticed how hard it is to deal with stupid people. Smart people realize this and avoid stupid people. For this, they are labeled as introverts. ;)

sure, it is tough to work with "stupid" people, but aren't the "smart" ones supposed to be able to deal with them? (since because they are "smart")

It is not only the case that you'd have to work with stupid people.

Smart people like to hang around smart people. But they are few and far in between. So they tend to lead a solitary life ;)

The intra conversations they have are more interesting than the useless conversations they would have with other people. Their minds are curious about a lot of things they see, and hear in this sophisticated yet again simple world. They would rather think about such useful possible discoveries than the usual

hello,

hi,

how are u,

good,

where are you going to,

just walking around for some fresh air,

oh really then let me come with you then,

hey did you notice that beautiful chic that just passed by?, .....on and on and on!!

No profit to society.

By the way i have a very IQ(lol just kidding , no proof).

i am an introvert.

Some people think i hate them.

My pastor white American been here for 3yrs and left three weeks ago thought i was racist(he didn't say it but it was written on his face) because a lot of people were always around him but i never was not even once.

i don't speak to people for two reasons.(just recently but wasn't the case when i was a kid)

1. I hear a lot of nonsense from mediocre minds and i do my best not to engage in any serious sense conversation with them. Preventing headache

2. I'm afraid of what might come out of my mouth when i hear nonsense, i don't wanna scare people so i just smile as if i agree.

The things i say on CD no one who knows will believe it came from me.

I need rehab to be extrovert.

I think to them it can be daunting to speak to a .....hm.....less educated person. If that makes sense. People tend to flock to others like themselves, they find comfort in it. Religion to religion, political belief to political belief. A person with a higher IQ usually can find clubs that cater to others like them but on the whole I think they tend to be more introverted and perspective then outgoing.

Side: yes

It depends how you define intelligent. One could call a psychologist or a politician intelligent and they are going to be less introverted than per say an engineer. Depends on the form of intelligence. Introverts make friends in their own way. They use the Internet and spend loads on time on forums. It's a different kind of socialization. Or they keep a few in person friends and get to know them really well.

Side: no
