Stupid Hillbilly News - 4 Tricks To Make Seem Smarter

posted by Brian Taylor -

Studies have shown that wearing glasses really does make you seem  smarter.  Especially glasses with thick frames.  Here are five more  tricks you can use to make yourself seem more intelligent . . .

1.  Use a middle initial, or even MULTIPLE initials.  A study had  people rate a paper on Einstein where the name of the writer was either  listed as "David Clark" . . . "David F. Clark" . . . "David F.P. Clark" .  . . or "David F.P.R. Clark."  And when they looked at the results, the  name with the most initials got the best ratings.

2.  Use graphs at work, or at school.  A study at Cornell had people  read two versions of a report about a new cold medication.  When the  report didn't have a graph, 67% of people said they believed the information.  With a graph, it jumped to 96%.

3.  Drink anything other than alcohol.  There's something called  "imbibing idiot bias," where just holding a drink makes you seem less  intelligent, even if you're dead sober.

4.  Speak more expressively.  Meaning don't be boring and monotone.   People tend to think you're smarter when you can vary the speed, volume,  and pitch of your voice.  And your energy level should fluctuate too.
