Being lazy is a sign of high intelligence

New research seems to prove the theory that brainy people spend more time lazing around than their active counterparts.  Findings from a US-based study seem to support the idea that people with a high IQ get bored less easily, leading them to spend more time engaged in thought.  And active people may be more physical as they need to stimulate their minds with external activities, either to escape their thoughts or because they get bored quickly.

It seems like the concept of lazy needs to be considered in the context of the situation and not for every lazy person.

But how far is this theory true? We know for a fact that if you are lazy and does not want to study, you might need to put in extra effort to be successful. I am sure we have these sets of friends who just want to laze all day watching TV and play online games, within the comfort of their home. Same excuse that they always g...

My mom always used to tell that I was too lazy as a kid, and while other kids would play outside I would rather stay at home and sleep or read a book. Now I have an answer for her worries. I was super lazy because I was super intelligent! I wish this research was done 10 years back :D Apparently the level of mental activity or in other words, engagement in thoughts is inversely proportional to the level of physical activity. The brainy ones spend more time with their own thoughts while the less ...
