Intelligent people are really hard to find these days. In the 21st century, people hardly ever think before they speak, and it has become increasingly difficult to have a solid conversation without losing your mind.
It is natural, therefore, to be constantly on the lookout for people who stimulate your senses and creativity. Judging somebody on the go becomes a necessity when it’s a world of 7 billion people. You need to know which ones are your types:
You Need To Sound Intelligent
The entire beauty industry would have you believe that the secret lies in the face. They are selling you fairness creams and pimple-cleansing lotions, puncturing an already deflated self worth.
Studies have concluded that it is not actually a good face that passes you off as intelligent (thankfully). How you speak and present are two extremely important components in your representation.
This philosophy can be traced back to Darwin, actually. In the evolution of the organic species, your voice betrays keys to competence and ability. It is deeply ingrained in the human psyche, and is a subconscious choice.
1. Speaking Quick
Nobody has got time to listen to a thesis right now. Anybody who can put forward their thoughts in a precise and apt format gets attention. Irrespective of how long the issue may be, these people are able to club all the important facts into a short two or three sentence explanation. Who knew all those comprehension exercises in school would actually pay off someday?
If you speak quickly, without stuttering or stammering, and forgetting your points, then you are a genius. The greater majority cannot pull off that feat, which is exactly why it works to your advantage. A couple of ways that will help you overcome your speech impediment is: try mastering tongue-twister, start reading loudly at varying speeds, add prepositions to connecting words when you read aloud.
2. Don’t Fill Gaps With Random Words
If you keep using fillers like “so like”, “yeah”, “umm”, “and then like”, “you know”, it reflects on your incapability to arrange a speech. It just shows that you are completely unprepared. Using random fillers is a sign of a weak speaker. So, avoid it at all costs.
The best way to improve this is to constantly speak aloud, and practice in front of an audience. It could be your friend, mother, or anybody else; as long as there is a kind soul to bring you some feedback. Make sure they know you’re learning, and should not be too harsh on you. Better still, you could record yourself, and be your own critic. This is a safe and personal way to improve your speech capability.
3. Make Sure Your Voice Is Deep And Low
A baritone is the sexiest and most appealing thing there is. If you are hyper excited through out relating an incident, then people won’t pay much attention to it. You will be relegated as childish, and ignored. Do not do this. Keep a consistent spectrum through out your speech. Make sure that your emotions don’t get the better of you in carrying you off.
A pretty great paper reading session can go awry if the presenter cannot keep their tone dignified and restrained. Sophistry is a sure mark of the intelligent. All these catalogs and magazines might seem like baseless nonsense, but there is a truth to every stereotype. You cannot behave like a hooligan and expect to be treated as a king/queen. That is irrational and lazy. Remember that and act accordingly.
If you follow the rules to being shown as intelligent, you might end up being it too. Good luck!
