Which Zodiac Sign is the Smartest and most Intelligent?


There is no one way to gauge intelligence. While your Intelligence Quotient (IQ) is a great benchmark to arrive at the conclusion of the levels of smartness, Emotional Quotient (EQ) of a person also has a major role to play in understanding the higher frequency of the mind. Intelligence is reflective of the wit, material and even spiritual knowledge. So, how do you know if a person in the Zodiac is actually smart and intelligent? How do the stars of a Zodiac influence their decision making and analytical skills? Here are a few things you need to know about the Zodiac signs that display brilliance, smartness and intelligence like none others in the study of Astrology.

Aquarius (January 20th- February 18th)

This sign in the opinion on many tops the charts with their intelligence and wit. Quite the original thinker, ruled by Uranus and associated with the eleventh house, their means of expressions touches the pinnacle of knowledge. This sign goes beyond the conventional modes of thinking to establish ideas never thought of before. They rarely conform to the set patterns and look at newer ways of establishing the unconventional beyond the status quo. Anything they perceive as utter stupidity would be shunned at first sight and they wouldn’t fear a thing in seeking or speaking out the truth. They are visionaries par excellence who look into the future and make profound changes in the present for the betterment of all and sundry.

The high level of intelligence can make them quite arrogant and aloof, easily attracting criticism along the way. They think and act differently often to the benefit of the larger masses in general rather than harboring to individual, selfish thoughts. They are innovative people who perform beautifully in almost any field they set their hearts to. The ability to think of the box is a start trait which takes them far in life once determined to make a difference.

Scorpio (October 23rd- November 22nd)

This sign of the Zodiac is perhaps the most ambitious. They know what they want and would not have it any other way. They are super smart and are never shying away from heading all in to pursue what they like. They have a deeply analytical bent of mind with coupled with their patience is quite a remarkable combination for cultivating more knowledge and acting rationally. Their clarity of thought and amazing dominance over well researched facts makes it difficult to win any argument with them. They aren’t the ones beating their own drums but their meticulous ways of action will make them impossible to be ignored or cornered. Quite the mysterious characters, they are never quick at realising their smartness and intelligence. It is easy to get enchanted by their charm and wit.

You could rely on them for facts and figures which will rarely be tampered with because of their fierce loyalty to everything they are passionate about. Because of their clarity of thoughts, wishful thinking is not exactly how they want their lives to be, rather they would appreciate a headstrong approach to carving their own fate.

Cancer (June 21st- July 22nd)

This is a sign with a high level of Emotional Quotient (EQ). They are the most nurturing people in the Zodiac. They are in fine tune with their naturalist intelligence, moving mountains to take care of their near and dear ones. They are not just kind and compassionate towards people but also towards everything around them, nature in all its glory. They spend a lot of time understanding who they are, what they need and how they would want their lives to be. Their sensitivity to all they see and experience makes them attractive on the intelligence front. We could go to the extent of saying that this water sign is better attuned to dealing with an emotional crisis than that of the mind.

Emotional intelligence highlights not just personal awareness, needs or necessities but also being able to act with integrity with other lives involved. The skill to handle and process emotions creatively rather than acting rash when emotions are buried deep and unexpressed is a brilliant trait of this sun sign in astrology. The higher level of EQ in this Zodiac stems from the fact that they can do without seeking external validation and look inwards to derience peace in their consciousness of being present and comfortable in their soul and skin.

Gemini (May 21st- June 20th)

This air sign is multi faceted. The ability to quickly grasp knowledge and varied skills makes them quite the intelligent characters in the Zodiac. Excellent communication skills is the most attractive trait of a Gemini. Count on them to seamlessly converse of any topic that piques your interest. The twins can see both sides of the coin and hence, magnify or mirror issues that most neglect. Though countless options can confuse them, they can navigate through that quite well because of their amazing analytical, logical thinking.

This sign is ruled by Mercury which rules intelligence and ideation. As a result of high levels of understanding, this Zodiac sign can reduce the most complex ideas in the simplest fashion. They are highly adaptable, swiftly absorbing all that they see, feel and hear. The next level thinkers who rarely take note of the nitty gritties, those born under this Zodiac sign have a great level of survival skills under any situation or circumstance beyond their comfort zones. They are fast thinkers quickly processing information and dissemination of information at lightning speed. This sign is sure to blow your mind with their wit and humour, being quite the company that most people seek.

Capricorns (December 22nd- January 20th)

The men and women born under the Capricorn Zodiac sign are quite methodical and process oriented which makes them great decision makers. They seek clarity in everything that they do or is presented before them, away from all the impulsivity that creates confusion. They tend to be headstrong, having all the information at their disposal before they leap into the known or unknown. They possess a thirst for knowledge and will refrain from shying away from their mistakes and making amends. They are quite slow but steady in reaching their goals but that makes all their efforts and the success long lasting. Their patience and higher levels of organisational skills makes them quite efficient in managing and devising the smartest methods to finish a task.

However, their focus and self absorption in the quest for the best can drive them into seclusion. What characterizes them as highly intelligent and smart is this ability to look past the present problems and challenges and focus harder on their end goals. Their genius lies in their attention to detail and commitment to everything that they set their eyes upon. A much more mature and wiser sign of the Zodiac, this sun sign is a guiding light to those willing to follow them and get inspired.
