    Being a loner does not make a person more intelligent, but being intelligent can increase the odds of becoming a loner. And actually, studies show that although most people feel happier and more satisfied with life when they spend a lot of time socializing with other people, highly intelligent people feel less satisfied with life when they spend a lot of time socializing.

    The reason for this discrepancy should be obvious if you think about it. If you are of average intelligence, you’re part of a majority population. It’s easy for you to find other people in your community who are of similar IQ, so it’s relatively easy for you to have fulfilling conversations with others and find others who share your interests. These relationships are easy and enjoyable, which helps you feel happy and satisfied with life.

    On the other hand, if you have an IQ at the very high end of the bell curve, you’re part of a minority population. It’s very difficult to meet others who match your intellect. Since the majority of the population can’t fully grasp the depth of understanding that you have in your topics of interest, you are not able to have fulfilling conversations in most of your relationships. The more time you spend socializing with others, the more you realize that they don’t really understand what you’re talking about. You also feel bored by the topics they enjoy talking about. Then you feel unhappy and less satisfied with life. But the more time you spend alone, reading, developing new theories and hypotheses, inventing new devices or ways of doing things, writing your thoughts down on paper, observing phenomena, and analyzing statistics, the happier and more satisfied you feel with life.

    This is precisely why highly intelligent people become loners. When an individual is not surrounded by intellectual equals by the sheer luck of falling in the middle of the bell curve, the individual must become a loner or else risk depression and dissatisfaction with life.
