Science says people judge your intelligence on 3 key criteria
There was a study carried on how a person is considered as intelligent or less intelligent. Based on the study; there are 3 important criteria which prove that the person is intelligent. One can improve on all the 3 skills and be part of the intelligent group.
When a person passes the comment “You are smarter than you look”, it means that you are actually dumb by using the word affirmative word “Smart”. This clearly shows that the person is not intelligent. It is very important how one presents himself/herself. This kind of attitude might give you minus points in job interviews or promotion. If this is a part of your personality then it needs to be fixed on priority.
Simple Way to Look Intelligent
Look intelligent by not literary presenting yourself well but the way you speak. The University of Chicago did a study in which students were filmed for the job and was shown to the recruiters. They were then brought in presence of students and divided them into 3 groups: watched the video, listened to the audio and read the transcript. The results were obvious employers were least bothered about the look of students, everything boiled down to the way they spoke.
It is perceived that the person who speaks faster is far more intelligent because they are confident. So to improve the speed of your speech, follow 3 simple steps:
Practice more and more tongue twister; this will have good control over your mouth and tongue.
Read a passage loudly with different speed and shuffle between low and high speed. Along with this, try to read a passage backward. This will reduce the pause taken while thinking as you speak.
Use preposition like “the” or “and” in all the places when you read out loud. This will train your mind to read without thinking too much.
Filler is the Killer
Try to use less of the filler words “ah, so, um, like” while speaking. This will hinder your confidence eventually making you look less intelligent. Sometimes silent pause is better than filler. You can stop this by recording your conversation and listen to it repeatedly.
Vocal tone and Pitch
It is very important to have low tone and a deeper voice. This will portray your confidence well. High pitch and loud voice will sound immature and nervous. The sentence should have inflection rather than ending it on the high pitch. You will look childish and less intelligent.
Your intelligence depends on your voice. Go ahead and work on your speech and be intelligent.
