An Intelligent Woman Knows She Has No Limit

· February 3, 2017

For a long time, there were social beliefs about the role that a woman should play: caring for the children and her husband, taking over the housework, and taking care of the family elders. All of these is over, though, and today the intelligent, independent woman who knows that she has no limits stands out.

An intelligent woman lives her own life, takes on roles of professional responsibility, is independent, and does not base her happiness on getting married or having children because she knows that her happiness depends on herself and not on third parties. She has learned to value herself and grow as a person.

The intelligent woman and her partner

A study conducted by various British universities that was published in the daily Sunday Times concluded that intelligent women tend not to get married, while brilliant men have a 40% greater chance of marrying.

The study was performed with a group of 900 men and women. These voluntary participants underwent an IQ test at age 11 and 40 years later were interviewed to find out if who had gotten married and who had not.

It was discovered that the women who decided to continue their university studies had a 40% lower chance of getting married. Concerning the men, however, they have a 35% greater chance of getting married for each 16-point increase in their intelligence quotient.

The things an intelligent woman does

There are certain features that characterize an intelligent woman, that make her different from other women, and that provide an increase in attraction for men. However, according to varies studies done at the University of Buffalo, the Lutheran University of California, and the University of Texas (all in the United States), it was concluded that men feel intimidated by intelligent women.

“To achieve great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”

-Virginia Woolf-


From a biological standpoint, according to the study, men should seek a relationship with an intelligent woman for the genetic advantages that this brings with it. However, in practice, most men prefer not to go out with a woman who is brighter than they are.

The question that we must ask ourselves at this point is: What sets an intelligent woman apart from others? Let’s take a look.

She lives in the moment

She knows how to learn from the past and to patiently and calmly wait for the future. She lives in the moment, the here and now, enjoying each word, touch, look, smell, or taste. An intelligent woman looks you in the eyes and listens to you because she feels that she has to take advantage of that moment with you.

Like everyone else, she has gone through difficult moments in her life and she knew how to overcome them and take strength. She has learned not to make the same mistakes twice and she knows exactly what she wants to achieve in life.

She appreciates solitude

An intelligent woman does not feel alone just due to the fact that she doesn’t have a partner. Quite the contrary: she appreciates her solitude and her independence. She does not tie her happiness to other people, but rather, her rich inner life allows her to enjoy those moments of solitude.

“Solitude teaches more than any company.”

Those solitary moments are necessary for every intelligent woman because they allow her to get to know herself, to evaluate herself, to reflect on life, and to know what she has to improve. Through those reflections, she manages to overcome challenges, to gain motivation.

She is not afraid of change

Intelligent women are not afraid of stepping outside their comfort zones and facing changes. They are aware that changes imply opportunities and that they are also a way to learn new lessons and have original experiences.

“A wise girl knows her limits, a smart girl knows that she has none.”

-Marilyn Monroe-

They do not like a job that does not excite them, a partner that they do not share a life ideal with, or friends who do not support them in them decisions. Intelligent women react and look for ways to improve. They are active by nature.

She listens to her heart and knows how to say no

An intelligent woman knows that the voice of her heart and of her intuition is very important. Furthermore, she is aware that when she has to make difficult decisions, her body speaks and expresses the emotions that each option arouses in her. This is an important piece of information that she keeps in mind when it comes to making the right decision.

Furthermore, she is not afraid to say no and she knows that there are times when we must say no and put limits on other people so that they will respect our personal space and way of life. She is not a possessive person, nor does she let anyone be that way with her.

In short, she is a very intelligent woman!
