A subtle sign of low intelligence is an inability to understand or appreciate complexity. People with low intelligence may have difficulty understanding abstract concepts or thinking outside the box. They may also be more likely to believe simplistic explanations or conspiracy theories.

A user asked what’s a subtle sign of low intelligence? and here are 15 top traits 

1. Absence of Curiosity

2. Believing Anything on Social Media

4. Knowing Everything

“People who think they know everything are generally pretty stupid.

Smart(er) people will defer questions to qualified and experienced individuals because they are acutely aware of their limitations, which helps make them smart. They’re not scared to admit they lack knowledge in specific topics or fields. And they will learn from that more experienced person to add to their library of knowledge and experience.

Stupid people don’t know they’re stupid; they think they know everything, and won’t seek out more experienced people and admit to their limitations, admit they don’t know anything about certain things.”

5. Adamant on Their Opinion

“The inability, or unwillingness, to change one’s opinion when confronted with new information. No matter how much they’re proven wrong on a given topic if a person digs their heels in, they’re an idiot.”

“Not capable of understanding a nuanced point.”

6. Not Understanding the Basics of Finance

“Buying a new car when you’re broke.”

“Dude, yes…. I have a broke friend, already barely making ends meet; what did she do a few months ago? Buy a TRUCK. When gas is $5 a gallon. Now she can’t even afford to take her kid to the dentist when he has cavities so bad his teeth hurt.”

7. Calling Something Stupid
