DIANE CANFIELD: “Sociopathic Behavior And The Cure”

The Butterfly Effect

Since there is only LOVE — there is a separation with some that have not been loved and do not know what LOVE is.  This behavior when to the extreme can play out as what is termed sociopathic behavior.  What is really — lack of LOVE and separation from Source.

One of the attributes of a sociopath is to accuse others of what they themselves are doing.  This accomplishes two things for them, it takes the attention off of them and puts the victim in a defensive mode.

The victim then has to try to explain themselves when it is actually the sociopath that should be doing the explaining.  This is a common mechanism that is used by someone with no conscious and no connection to SOURCE.

They also feel they are above everyone else and untouchable.  They may also be charming and likable by many.  Yet few know the hidden secrets they carry and the way they manipulate others.

They do not operate on the same code of ethics that most of us do.  They operate on service to self, while making it look like they are service to others.

Empaths are especially vulnerable to this because we have a tendency to “care too much”.  We are the ULTIMATE nurturers and support for others.  This is the opposite of a sociopath that looks to use others for their own gain.

Energetically they feel chaotic and not peaceful.  They may seem to always be on edge waiting for someone to find them out.

We can see this in all walks of life, in business, family and all places where there are high profile people.

The answer to this is to LOVE ourselves enough to be able to spot this immediately when we see it.  We can not “care enough” to fix this person.  They have to at some point learn to love themselves enough to work on themselves and learn how to genuinely care for others without expecting anything in return.

The answer in the higher states is to have healing centers where they are shown what LOVE is and how to love others — just for the sake of LOVE

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “A Beginners Guide to Face Reading”

face-reading-for-beginners

 

Have you ever heard the expression- “it’s written all over your face?” Well, there may in fact be some truth to that.

Face Reading has been around for ages and has been used to make predictions about one’s past, present and future.

Just like palm reading, face reading takes into account subtle lines, contours and the overall appearance in order to determine the person’s fate, health and personality.

Face Readings have even been used by corporate companies to help determine whether an employee would be a good fit for a company.

There are many different types and styles of Face Reading, but this guide will help you to learn the basics.

The Anatomy of the Face

  • The left side of the face represents the person’s character and temperament
  • The right side of the face represents the person’s emotions and relationships
  • The upper part of the face (forehead) represents childhood, the past and the relationship with parents
  • The mid part of the face including the eyes, nose and cheeks represents the present and the middle years of life
  • The lower part of the face including the chin represents the future and later years of life, it also represents the person’s private life

The Shape of the Face

There are three main face shapes used in Face Reading. If you fit into multiple categories, you can blend the interpretation of both.

Face Type #1: Oval Face

Those with an oval face are intellectual but also dreamers. They may change ideas or goals frequently. They are often shy and self conscious. Can be manipulative or have a hard time feeling grounded. Often get into professions in music and writing.

Face Type #2: Square Face

Those with a square or athletic face are often strong willed and very determined. They can be quick to anger and feel easily frustrated when things don’t go their way. Indicates a lot of self confidence and a practical nature. Most often seen in political leaders or people in a position of power.

Face Type #3: Round/Heart Face

Those with a round face are adaptable, methodical and practical. They usually have a sophistication about them and love spending time with others. Are often interested in many topics and areas and have a fun loving personality. They can be aggressive or even untrustworthy. They love working with people.

The Forehead

  • High and wide foreheads are a sign of intelligence
  • Low and wide foreheads are a sign of patience and perseverance
  • High and narrow foreheads are a sign of being practical and analytical
  • Low and narrow foreheads are a sign of cunningness and dishonesty
  • Blemished foreheads are said to indicate a troubled childhood or repressed emotions
  • A mole near the eyebrow indicates financial luck
  • Eyebrows are associated with health and longevity- the thicker and fuller the eyebrows the healthier the person is and the more fertile

The Eyes

The eyes are definitely the window to the soul and can indicate the vitality, energy and personality of a person. Here is what to look for-

 

  • Size: large eyes indicate sensitivity, compassion and creativity; small eyes indicate a strong will, inner power and a practical mindset
  • Spacing: eyes that are close together indicate a high intuition but also a jealous personality; eyes far apart indicate a lack of motivation but excellent people skills
  • Corners: eye corners that turn up indicate sincerity and honesty; eye corners that turn down indicate good fortune; rounded corners indicate kindness and sharp eye corners indicate adaptability.

The Nose

The size and shape of the nose indicate the persons ability to prosper and take on life’s challenges. The nose also indicates intelligence and career. Here is what to look for-

  • Short Nose: indicates flexibility, dependability, open mindedness; can also indicate someone who spends too freely or has a hard time getting along with others
  • Long Nose: indicates strong sense of responsibility, love to learn/study and have a very practical mindset; can take things too seriously at times and may find it hard to love openly
  • Flat Nose: indicates loyalty and patience; has the stamina to go that extra mile and often succeeds in pursuit of career goals
  • Crooked Nose: indicates creative talents and success, can indicate an unstable mind or a mind that likes to wander from goal to goal
  • Pointed Nose: indicates strong intuition and femininity; often has an interest in arts and music

The Mouth

  • Large Mouth: A large, thick lipped mouth indicates success, a love of food and people and a very generous nature. These people are considered to have a good “appetite” for life and are very outgoing
  • Small Mouth: A small, thin lipped mouth indicates sensitivity, independence and self consciousness. These people are considered to be introverted, hard working and very in tune with their intuition
  • Thicker Upper Lip: when the upper lip is thicker than the lower lip it indicates an affectionate person with a love of life. Can also indicate multiple marriages or a very strong independence.
  • Thinner Upper Lip: when the upper lip is thinner than the lower lip it indicates someone who is eager to please or someone who worries a lot. Can also indicate someone who is very dependable.
  • Straight Lips: indicates someone who is very practical and analytical, usually someone who is reserved in their behaviour
  • Lips Curved Up: lips curved up in the corners indicates someone who needs a lot of self assurance. This person may find it hard to open up to people they have just met
  • Lips Curved Down: lips curved down in the corners indicates someone who is very warm and affectionate. May also indicate a homebody or someone who is very dedicated to their family

The Ears

  • Large Ears: indicates masculinity, courage and strong drive and determination
  • Small Ears: indicates strong creativity, may be a late bloomer in life
  • Large Upper Ear: people who have a larger upper ears are often very intelligent and have a good memory, they are very responsible and often achieve many things in life
  • Large Lower Ear: people who have large lower ears or large lobes are usually extremely kind and full of fun. They love being with people and may be natural entertainers.

The Cheeks

  • High Cheek Bones: indicates a very private person, may also hold empathic or intuitive gifts
  • Flat Cheeks: indicates a very polite person who may be shy or have a hard time expressing their true feelings
  • Plump Cheeks: indicates someone who is playful and light hearted, often a sign of a great sense of humor
  • Blemishes: blemishes on the cheeks can indicate poor digestive health or an inability to “digest” emotions

The Chin 

  • Very prominent chin/jawline: indicates someone who is very active and likes to take charge, often a leader of some kind. Can be very judgemental and strongly opinionated.
  • Rounded chin/Soft jawline: indicates someone who is very traditional and family focused. Pays great attention to detail and can be very conventional.
  • Blemishes: blemishes, spots or pimples on the chin can indicate a hormone imbalance or issues with your own masculinity/femininity

Once you understand the basics of face reading, you can then use this knowledge coupled with your own intuition to work out what a particular facial feature may mean. Of course, this is not an exact science so have fun with it!

DAILY VIBES: “5 Signs You Are An Extremely Strong Yet Highly Sensitive Person”

Sensitive and Strong.jpg

When we think of people with great strength of character who are able to come through difficult circumstances often seemingly unfazed, we don’t generally think of those same people being very sensitive as well.  It can and does occur though, that some incredibly strong people and personalities are also some of the most sensitive.

The two traits are not mutually exclusive, as society might have us think.  Below are 5 signs you just might be one of these rare people yourself.

1. You find yourself overwhelmed at times.

The world is wild and sometimes scary place, and life slows down for no one.  You may sometimes feel overcome by the rush and weight of it all, but you never give up.  You’re sensitive enough to feel those feelings deeply but strong enough not to be halted by them.  You know better than anyone that what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.

2. You call it like it is.

Your sensitivity allows you to be attuned to the details and hard truths of reality, and whether it’s the behavior of a friend or some small injustice that may go unnoticed by others, you aren’t afraid to bring it to the forefront of attention.  You’re in touch with the feelings of others, as most sensitive people are, but you don’t sugarcoat or gloss over things that need to be addressed.

3. You’re only interested in real romantic connections.

You’ve got a lot going on inside of you and you’re not interested in spending 5 dates talking about weather and local sports or favorite bands.  You want something honest and real from your partner and you’re not afraid to wait it out a little longer in order to get that.  You don’t like to be alone, but you know what your company is worth and you won’t settle for less.

4. You have standards for yourself and others.

You’re sensitive enough to know when something isn’t quite right but you’re also strong enough to know you shouldn’t take that crap lying down.  You wouldn’t expect anything from others that you don’t expect from yourself, so when something is unacceptable, it’s important to you to let the proper people know so that the situation can be remedied.  Basically you don’t take any bullshit and you don’t allow yourself to dish it out, either.

5. You are an excellent listener.

Your natural sensitivity gives you a unique talent for listening and being compassionate to the troubles of others, while your strength helps to make you a great shoulder to cry on in times of need.  Your presence is kind and warm but also firm and reassuring.  You’re able to empathize and sit through the pain with a friend, but you’re also there to help them stand back up and keep on moving forward.  This is why anyone who gets to call you a friend should consider themselves lucky.

LISA RENEE (Energetic Synthesis): “Stop Trusting Megalomaniacs”

multidimensionalt

I would like to expand on untrustworthy behaviors modeled in people with weak moral character, to better comprehend the relationship between low moral character and the Negative Ego, through its main filters; Egotism, Narcissism and Psychopathy.  The purpose of promoting egotism and narcissism as a positive traits in society is intended to maintain low moral character and unethical standards as acceptable characteristic behavior in human beings and the social structures we have been made dependent.  When low moral character or deviant type of behaviors that produce harm are fully accepted and normalized in society and then consistently reinforced by the people around us, we are being conditioned to a specific value system and a range of frequency.  Humans are desensitized to what is being unconsciously shaped as an anti-human value system that we are constantly mind controlled to accept and this conditioning acts as the ego filter in how we perceive the world around us.  Unconsciously, we may promote these anti-human values to people around us, which become a self-enforced enslaving reality that spreads like a viral infection.  This is the Archontic Deception (AD) Strategy to generate weak moral character through the promotion and glorification of narcissistic and psychopathic behavior which are mindsets that are easily used to enforce consciousness enslavement through the consistent reinforcement of externalized tyrannical and violent behaviors.  Narcissistic and psychopathic minds can be easily possessed by dark forces, and hence why they are intentionally manufactured in the people on the earth.  When we are informed to be able to see this psychological warfare strategy working in the mass consciousness and controller structures, we can stop feeding into its violence and psychopathy, and thus, we can change its course of direction from negative to positive.

Egotism – The First Stages

The conceit of egotism describes a person who acts to gain value for self-serving motivation and taking in an excessive amount of resources than that which he or she gives back to others.  Usually these are actions of taking in others energy, time and resources and is accompanied with very low ethical standards and displaying low moral character traits.  This is also called consumptive modeling or energetic vampirism from the Guardian Founder Races Cosmic Sovereign Law of One model.  Egotism may be fulfilled by exploiting the sympathy, trauma, emotion or ignorance of others, as well as utilizing coercive force, deception, manipulation, Mind Control and fraud.  The egotist has an overwhelming sense of the centrality of the ‘Me’ operating in their personal qualities and personal identity.  Without developing Self Awareness and ego discipline, the untamed Negative Ego is exploited by Mind Control and further develops itself into serious spiritual pathologies which lead to narcissism and psychopathy.

At the development stage of the first three layers of the mind, the Three Layers of Ego, a third dimensional human being is purely egoic and influenced towards being in Service to Self.  The 3rd Chakra or Solar Plexus is the Conscious Mind matrix to which the spiritual being may learn how to manifest via the projection of lower thought substance in order to navigate in the material realms.  However, what has happened on the planet earth during this last dark cycle is not merely a Service to Self negative polarization of free will. Through Negative Aliens invasion of the planet earth through the genetic alteration of human and planetary DNA, installation of Alien Machinery to install frequency fences and NET, the NAA to implant humanity with Mind Control Alien Implants is a bio-warfare strategy to control the planet, humanity and the soul through directing Holographic Inserts which alter, modify and damage DNA.  What has occurred to humanity is not a simple result of choices made to Service to Self. The NAA objective is an intended annihilation of the human species original DNA and obliteration from existence by erasing the hidden human historical record from this Universe.  This unhealed mental and emotional trauma can easily lead to narcissism, which most of the time is a cover up or façade for deep emotional and spiritual wounding.

Narcissism – The Secondary Stages

Narcissism is used to describe the pursuit of gratification from vanity, or egotistic admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes, that derive from arrogant pride.

The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism:

  • Shamelessness: Shame is the feeling that lurks beneath all unhealthy narcissism and the inability to process feelings of shame in healthy ways.
  • Magical thinking: Narcissists see themselves as perfect or have a delusional self-image, using distortion and illusion known as magical thinking.  They also use projection to dump shame onto others.
  • Arrogance: A narcissist who is feeling deflated may reinflate themselves by the impulsive need to diminish, debase, or degrade somebody else.
  • Envy: A narcissist may secure a sense of superiority in the face of another person’s ability by using contempt or even slander to minimize the other person.
  • Entitlement: Narcissists hold unreasonable expectations of particularly favorable treatment and automatic compliance because they consider themselves special. Failure to comply is considered an attack on their superiority, and the perpetrator is considered an awkward or difficult person.  Defiance of their will is a narcissistic injury that can trigger narcissistic rage.  Narcissistic rage directed at others usually involve demonic possessions manipulating the situation.
  • Exploitation: Can take many forms but always involves the exploitation of others without regard for their feelings or interests.  Often the other is in a subservient position where resistance would be difficult or made even impossible.  Sometimes the subservience is not so much real as assumed.
  • Bad boundaries: Narcissists do not recognize that they have boundaries and that others are people with feelings and are not extensions of themselves.  Others either exist to meet their needs or may as well not exist at all.  Those who provide narcissistic supply to the narcissist are treated as if they are part of the narcissist and are expected to live up to those expectations or the reality bubble that they have created.  In the mind of a narcissist there is no boundary between self and other, and their needs are the only thing that matters.

Narcissistic Personalities and Psychopaths have little to no capacity to feel remorse for the harm, destruction or killing they cause any person place or thing.  This is also described as a Lack of Empathy, which is characterized by the inability to feel, experience emotional states, or discern what another life form may be feeling.  Lack of Empathy has been generated in the human race from alien hybridization and is a harmful genetic mutation in the DNA of our species.  The process of losing the ability to feel and experience empathy defines a being that has been disconnected from its Soul-Spirit, and thus suffers from genetic damage and soul fragmentation.

Psychopathy – The Third and Final Stages of Insanity

Psychopathy as a personality disorder is characterized by enduring antisocial behavior, diminished empathy and remorse, and disinhibited or bold behavior, tendency towards cruelty and meanness.  In our research we have discovered many psychopathic personalities have demonic alters or alien possession problems.  However, behaviorialists suggest that different conceptions of psychopathy emphasize three main observable characteristics to varying degrees:

  1. Boldness.  Low fear including stress-tolerance, toleration of unfamiliarity and danger, and high self-confidence and social (alpha) assertiveness.  Fearless dominance.  May correspond to differences in the amygdala and other neurological systems associated with fear responses.
  2. Disinhibition: Poor impulse control including problems with planning and foresight, lacking affect and urge control, demand for immediate gratification, and poor behavioral restraints.  Impulsive antisociality. May correspond to impairments in frontal lobe systems that are involved in such control.
  3. Meanness: Lacking empathy and close attachments with others, disdain of close attachments, use of cruelty to gain empowerment, exploitative tendencies, defiance of authority, and destructive excitement seeking.  Coldheartedness (black hearted) and meanness may possibly be caused by either high boldness or high disinhibition (a lack of restraint) combined with an adverse environment.

Sociopathy and Psychopathy are often used interchangeably, but in some cases the term sociopathy is preferred because it is less likely than is psychopathy to be confused with psychosis, whereas in other cases the two terms may be used with different meanings that reflect the user’s views on the origins and determinants of the disorder.  Sociopaths are masters at influence, Emotional Manipulation, gaslighting and deception.  Very little of what they say actually checks out in terms of facts or reality, but they’re extremely skillful at making the things they say sound believable, even if they’re just making them up out of thin air.

In his book The Mask of Sanity, Hervey Cleckley described 16 common qualities he thought were characteristic of the individuals he termed psychopaths:

  • Superficial charm and good mental intelligence
  • Mental rigidity or thought addiction to rational thinking and materialism
  • Absence of nervousness or psychoneurotic manifestations
  • Unreliability, lack of responsibility
  • Untruthfulness and insincerity
  • Lack of remorse and shame
  • Inadequately motivated antisocial behavior, destructive
  • Poor judgment and failure to learn by experience
  • Pathologic egocentricity and incapacity for love or feelings
  • General poverty in major affective reactions (low responses to outward displays of emotions or feelings)
  • Specific loss of insight, lack of awareness of impact on others
  • Unresponsiveness in general interpersonal relations
  • Extreme types of uninviting behavior with drink and sometimes without
  • Suicide threats, sometimes used as control over others and rarely carried out
  • Sex life impersonal, trivial, and poorly integrated, disconnected
  • Failure to follow any life plan, live for the moment without considering consequences and taking all you can get

Stop Trusting Megalomaniacs

A serious consequence of psychopathy is no genuine feeling of remorse and no empathy for others, leading to an anti-human lifestyle.

We can apply this above checklist to ourselves to inquire on what may trigger our own Negative Ego to rear up from unhealed pain and trauma.  Or we may apply the checklist for better discernment when making choices of where we place our trust and what we value as a lifestyle model that we intend to follow in so that we may strengthen our character and develop our inner spirit.  If we observe a person acting out an excessive amount of these negative behaviors near to us, we may choose to not support them in their delusions.  As we build better and practical ways of discerning trustworthiness and competency, we also gain confidence to build stronger intuition in such matters, where the checklist is not required.  As is made clear here in these checklists, the more severe the Negative Ego dysfunction the more potentially disconnected the person is from their heart, intuition, self-awareness and spiritual source.  This immediately gives one a gauge to measure what level a person can be trusted, no matter what words they may be speaking or using seduction or manipulation tactics in order to forward their agenda.

In the severe stages of narcissism and psychopathy, the veneer of seduction, charisma and mimicry of empathic reactions that are geared for manipulation to serve one’s egocentric needs, and can be seen much more clearly over time.  It is very common for people that base their leadership or authority on controlling behaviors and tyrannical principles, to aggressively manipulate others by creating a façade of charisma from mimicking what they have found people want to hear from their wounded ego parts.  Many people do not want to hear or know the truth; they want to be lulled to sleep by fantasy delusions.  Megalomaniacs that thrive on taking power and having control over others, are master manipulators of telling people lies based on what they want to hear or believe.

This is the tough part.  We have to ask if we are able to seek the honest factual truth of behavioral interactions or have people feed us lies that are flattering or comfortable for our wounded ego parts.

Otherwise we reinforce the delusion in the person and circumstances and we become enablers, allowing them to continue to perpetrate deceptions in the group through their own self-deception.  Promoting and enabling delusions leads to pathological thinking and spreads a fabricated reality through false impressions.  This false impression is the spin on perceptions that are designed to serve the agenda of the ego, narcissistic or psychopath.  It is important to be able to identify abusers, liars, predators and psychopaths as people traumatized by terrible pain, soul fragmentation and spiritual disconnection.  When people are utterly controlled by negative ego dysfunction and have no impulse control and they live in self-deception.  A person who is deceiving themselves has no other alternative but to deceive others because they have little to no clarity.  Why would we trust resources and give value to the words spoken in the skewed theories of a person, group, family member, organization that is a repeatedly demonstrated as giving value to massive egos with behaviors that are abusive, predatorial or deceptive?

Control Oriented Tantrums

However, I have noted that we have to discern how much truth can be directed to people who do not want to hear the truth, and will react with aggression or narcissistic rages.  These tantrums are usually designed to suck your life force and exhaust your resources to limit your efficiency or effectiveness.  Unfortunately this happens a lot to those of us committed to work with Krystic values in our spiritual communities and is predictable around times of newly assigned gridwork or related projects.

It is generally wise to know that control-oriented people as described in the profiles above, expect to control the people and events around them.  Exposing or challenging their tactics could provoke their anger and result in severe and possibly dangerous types of retaliation.  When we assess who we are dealing with, we can expect that we will be a target of their backlash, usually with the help of some demonic or alien attachments.  This is why having a clear understanding that one must protect themselves and the others who could become targets, before challenging a control-oriented person infected with narcissistic rage.  If we comprehend their behavioral strategy, we can make better decisions which neutralize the overall impact to others, with less harm inflicted.  A person with narcissistic rage is oblivious to the harm he/she creates, and even more oblivious to the world of dark forces using them to generate more negative forces into the environment.

Clearly all of this type of negative behavior, egotism, narcissism and psychopathy massively breaks down trust between people and groups, and creates a fearful environment where people are darting away from the confrontation of a person exhibiting inner violence that has turned aggressive or rageful.  Building Trust is based on real actions of ethical conduct based in peaceful interactions and not flowery, flattering words being spoken to create false impression.  Trust is everything when it comes to real and authentic heart based mutual communication.  Here, we attempt to avoid promoting people that exhibit dominating alpha behavior (egotist), narcissistic behaviors, psychopathic behaviors and delusional behaviors, because all of these negative behaviors have violent and aggressive tendencies that are easily used to destroy all efforts towards unified cooperation.

Time and consistency will always reveal to you the truth in the matter, if you are willing to patiently seek the truth over remaining in denial, because it may feel more comfortable to avoid the truth.  As we learn improved skills to identify these harmful behaviors and stop feeding them, we can also connect the dots to see the direct relationship these behaviors were designed through the Archontic Deception strategies used to weaken and Mind Control human beings.  The Psychopath is the profile of the NAA extradimensional entity.  We can see the logic of their hive mentality being installed in the human collective to give value what they value, which is the tyrannical control and oppression of the perceived weaker person through militarized predatorial methods.

Stay spiritually strong and on course!

Love Lisa

DAILY VIBES: “10 Unexpected Traits You Will Only Find In Extremely Intelligent People”

a503c581dbc2c49ae05c4a2418940f27 (2).jpg

Intelligence or smarts can manifest in many different ways.  Sometimes it shows itself in seemingly totally spontaneous manners, things we don’t even connote with someone who is bright.  Often those who are very proficient in one area of intelligence are a little lacking in others.  A brilliant mathematician may lack an understanding of poetry or abstract art, while a leading physicist may be extremely socially challenged in a similar sense.

There are those lucky few however, that seem to somehow have tapped into many or all of the nuanced forms of intelligence and can function at a uniquely high level of ability in numerous opposing realms.  These people tend to share common traits which others might not even consider connected to their intellectual talents.  Listed below are 10 of these traits most commonly found among the subtly brilliant.

1. Fluidity of thought and opinion.

These people know that to take a staunch position on something is to limit yourself to that position.  While they are perfectly capable of forming strong opinions or beliefs, they prefer to stay away from rigid absolutes because they know that one must keep their mind open to new possibilities at all times.

2. They’re never hasty.

They will always take as much time and energy as they need to deeply and genuinely consider what they want to say before they say it.  They will take into account whether it is kind or socially acceptable, whether it is necessary or will add anything to the conversation, and whether or not they feel ready to confront the possible reactions to it.  It may seem like a lot of work, but this is usually a momentary process in the head that takes only a few extra seconds of thought.

3. Never contributing unless it will benefit the group.

Intelligent people don’t tend to be interested in small talk.  They don’t speak or do things just for the attention or to fill the awkward silence and spaces.  They will only become involved in a situation if they think they have something to bring to the table, something that will help or assist in a positive or necessary way.  Otherwise they simply won’t interject.

4. They march to their own drummer.

They aren’t worried about fitting in with the crowd because they know sometimes the crowd is boring or even downright wrong.  They base their thoughts and opinions on information and fact because they are acutely aware of the great potential human beings have for making mistakes.

This doesn’t mean they won’t consider other people’s feelings on things, but they will always want to form their own individual ideas about it once they’ve obtained as much information as they can.

5. They know that everyone is capable of being wrong. Including themselves.

Only the fool believes that men are infallible.  The truly intelligent person will always admit when they’re wrong or they’ve made a mistake.  You don’t grow to be wise or well-educated if you can’t accept being incorrect.  This also goes for those you might consider personal heroes.  You can respect someone greatly for many things and still believe it when they screw up.

6. They always strive to be objective.

Instead of being emotional about it and telling a person they’re just wrong, someone who is very intelligent will instead offer a different perspective.  It’s not about winning or losing the argument, it’s about helping the other person to understand things in a different, perhaps better or clearer way.  The smart man/woman would rather help someone else come to their own conclusion than force personal opinions on them.

7. They don’t let emotion get the best of them.

They will always do whatever they can to stay calm and clear-headed.  When you allow your emotions and personal bias to inform your speech and behavior, people suffer.  Communication just doesn’t happen the way it should and everyone ends up angry or upset.  Staying relaxed, trying not to take anything personally and relying on facts and logic are the best way to find a good solution or compromise to any difficult situation.

8. They often rely on intuition.

It may sound cliche, but sometimes the best thing you can do is trust your instincts.  Intelligent people know that human beings once relied entirely on their gut for survival, and though we’ve long since evolved past that, our physical feelings can still give us some useful hints for life now.  Never deny your instincts, they exist for a good reason.

9. They are people of action, not just words.

Too many of us will react to a troublesome issue by sitting around and trying to think our way out of it.  While I’m not suggesting that we remove thought from the equation entirely, I am telling you that the truly intelligent know better than to get paralyzed in thought.

At some point you’ve got to take the risk and act, or you’ll be immobilized permanently.  No good can come of sitting there and obsessing over your problem, you have to make a plan of action and follow through with it in order to have any hope of progressing.

10. They don’t need your validation.

Most of the time when someone is judging you harshly, what they’re really doing is revealing what type of person they are. Intelligent people don’t worry about judgment or what others are saying about them.  They do what feels right and important to them and they don’t bother letting others shame them for it.

They will take into consideration the thoughts of those they greatly admire and respect, and if they think they’re being called out on something they deserve to be called out on, they won’t deny it, but overall their validation comes from within.  They simply have more productive things to do than chase the approval of their peers.
