New Delhi: We usually correlate genius to the likes of Einstein, Newton, Aristotle or Stephen Hawking, whose breakthrough findings gave humankind a new direction. The kinds of Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs too have made it to the list.

However, science suggests that you can be a genius even if you aren’t as great as the people mentioned above. If all your life you have been worried for not being intelligent and intellectual enough for the world, we have some good news for you.

Here are 5 things which tell if you are a natural genius or not. If you do these things, mate you are a natural star.

You are curious:

They say curiosity killed the cat, only in case of genius people, it breathed new life to them. If you read up on a variety of subjects, follow a variety of blogs and find yourself frequently running to the Internet to look up answers to questions that pop into your head, then your mind is that of a genius.

You talk to yourself:

Every time a close one caught you speaking with yourself, you were left red faced. While your relatives and friends can’t understand why you talk to yourself and not to other people around you, science says it is because you are a genius. When your mind is constantly going, you often have problems, dialogue and ideas you are working through. The more intense it is, the better.

You have a dark past:

Now, we are not saying that everyone who has a traumatic past is a genius, but history has it that people who have had a checkered past use their genius mind to come out of situations. Many writers, musicians, artists, scientists and other creative geniuses have succumbed to or struggled with addiction. Now we are not saying, it is a healthy thing but science says it’s not an unusual thing for genius.

Over thinking is your favourite hobby:

Whether it is a text you receive, or a person you overhear chatting, you tend to think more and more about everything. The thing is, geniuses are often full of doubts. They know there are no black and white answers, that grey exists, and that truth and knowledge continuously evolves and grows.   

You are forgetful:

While one might think that geniuses remember every teeny weeny detail about everything, this is not the case. In fact, they filter what concerns them and dump the rest to a black hole in their mind. Since they stay preoccupied with their projects and ideas, they often forget things which are expected of them, like birthdays and anniversaries. Sometimes, smart people enter a room and forget what they are there for. In case of geniuses, it is all normal.
