The personas of some of the world’s most popular characters have had to endure an increasing number of criticism for being too focused on their own personality traits.
A new survey of the personalities of celebrities reveals that the average person’s personality type is becoming more focused on one of the characteristics that most people think is important to have: intelligence.
It’s been a controversial topic in the social media era, with people questioning whether being a smart person makes you better or worse at interacting with people.
There are some clear positives to having an intelligent personality, though.
In a new survey conducted by the Institute for Research on Human Behavior, an academic research group, people said that they thought that being intelligent made them more likable, as well as less judgemental.
The researchers say that having the “right” intelligence type is one of a number of factors that influences how well you do in certain situations.
