It is difficult to identify students who is actually intelligent now a days, as there is no much difference between them and other students. But even at this, there are still some blunt characters intelligent students exhibit, that are seldom exhibited by other kinds of students.

In this article, I will share with you some of the characters intelligent students exhibit, that are never found in other kinds of students. So, if you really want to know who an intelligent student is, I advise you read this article painstakingly.

Common characters of intelligent students


  • Intelligent students are never dogmatic

The most prominent character of people who are greatly endowed, is that they are never dogmatic. They are always open to critiques and correction. Apparently, one of the core attribute of a good student, is his/her open mindedness to obtain whatever is been thought. And this has also been shown to be one of the characters of students intellectually filled.

Anyone who is dogmatic and can never considers other peoples view, can not be said to be intelligent, because his intellects, is limited to his views alone.

  • Intelligent students are creative:

Another great attribute of intelligent students is creativeness. Most intelligent students tends to be much more creative than other kinds of student. However, the reason for this, I can't really tell. Maybe it is because they spend much time thinking. 

Intelligent students are inventive, and are always engaged in critical thinking, because they love it. 

  • Intelligent students often read books: 

Even without being told, you should know that no student can automatically become intelligent over night. He/she must have been engaged in several relentless reading and researching. The most prominent character of about 97% of intelligent students, is reading and researching. 

Intelligent students engage in intense reading and researching, in other to gain more knowledge, and to also retain the knowledge they already have.

  • Intelligent students listens closely in the classroom:

Students who are intelligent, are also good listeners in the classroom. They are always attentive to gain whatever is being said in the classroom. In some cases, they get engaged in note taking in the class room, all with the aim of getting a vivid understanding of what is thought by the teacher, mentor or lecturers. 

They make sure that they read through all what they noted in the class room and conjoin other materials (e.g Textbook or Note books) for better knowledge.

  • Intelligent students love solving problems:

Another character that will help you identify an intelligent student, is his love for solving problems. Intelligent students are never indolent. They are always ready to solve educational problems as long as it will contribute to their knowledge. 

Unlike every other student, an intelligent student is a problem solver. He/she does not run away from problems when they get too difficult. He will rather consult a superior to teach him the way to solve that problem.

  • Intelligent students never postponed learning:

Intelligent students never skip learning. They would prefer taking their food away from them to asking them to stop learning. They love learning very much and would circumvent anything that will deter them from getting more knowledge. 

I could remember those days, where we are told that there will be no classes in school, and majority of members of the class, will start celebrating. However, there are still some students who are not happy, just because the class was skipped.

  • Intelligent students are well organized:

This might put you aback, but it is just the truth. Intelligent students often do their things in an orderly and organized manner. They make sure their learning materials are kept properly to avoid looking for them later. 

It is very difficult to see an intelligent student who is not well organised. This is because they see orderliness as one of the values of learning. And this position is undoubtedly true.

  • Intelligent students are jealous of their superiors:

Another stricken attribute of an intelligent student is his/her jealously for others students who are intellectually superior to them. Jealousy in this sense, does not mean hatred or envy. It is a kind of love for the superior's intellectual ability or capacity.

 Intelligent students often aspire to be like such person, and to make that happen, they work more enthusiastically.  

The foregoing are some of the characters to help you identify an intelligent student. With this, I believe it will be more easy for you to point out an intelligent student through his character when you watch him/her
