Evolutionary psychologists Satoshia Kanazawa and Norma Li thinks that extremely intelligent people prefer to be alone.
Dr. Robert Sternberg, a professor of human development at Cornell University, says there is no exact psychological meaning of the phrase ‘highly intelligent.’
Washington Post says that Satoshia Kanazawa and Norma Li's theory depends on “the hunter-gatherer lifestyles of our ancient ancestors that form the foundation for what make us happy now."
