Basic Reasons Why Intelligent People Are 'Lonely'

Intelligence can be burdensome and it can make you feel isolated from others. This is because intelligent people see the world differently and observe things that regular people don’t. Then how does intelligence adds to intellectual loneliness, emotional loneliness, physical loneliness etc?


1. New thoughts constantly.


Intelligent people process information quite efficiently and effortlessly which means they need a constant stream of new thoughts which is difficult for simple people to provide.


2. Love for solitude.


Intelligent people like spending time alone away from the disturbances and the distractions of their regular day to day lives. This means that, to some degree, they do impose themselves to a bit of loneliness.


3. Intelligence seeks intelligence.

Just a quick question. How many people do you know in your life who you can truly call intelligent?  It may not be a lot.  Like everyone, they need someone to be on the same page with hence the absence of someone with the same intellectual capacity pushes them to loneliness.


4. Intelligent people may not be that expressive.

Intelligent people don’t express themselves to everyone. Also, they may not be able to express their emotions in a way in which they would have liked to. Sometimes, their expressive inabilities, at times, may give the person the wrong idea.


5. Emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence is also a kind of intelligence and such people are known as empaths. They have this unique ability to feel things by putting themselves in other people’s shoes and understanding emotions from their perspective. Emotional intelligence leads to emotional loneliness. They, therefore, feel deep emotions but very few feel their emotions in turn, making them lonely, emotionally.
