Higher IQ people are more apt to suffer from psychological paranoia – but why? Could it be that they have such large memories and memories which are so vivid that they pick up subtle nuances, patterns and anomalies easier and try to make meaning of it all? Over the years running a think tank, I’ve talked to a huge number of over-the-top intelligent folks, all of which seem to be carrying some quirks or psychological baggage with all that brilliance, so let’s talk shall we?
When explaining this theory to another high IQ individual he noted: “This is similar to how my brain works on a day to day basis, for someone who I assume has no mental condition your description of the thought process is uncannily similar to how I have attempted to explain things to my doctors (with little to no understanding from them).”
Well, since I use my brain so much, I’ve learned to use it in all different ways, and I practice those different types of thoughts. I have caught myself pondering coincidences which are seemingly random, but statistically improbable, and as I do this it triggers a notation, brainwave, release of chemicals, thus an imprintation into memory. So, I’ve noticed that and it appears that the spike in awareness imprints the memory so strongly, it’s like a photographic memory only “video memory” instead, which is requires the imprinting of lots more data than a mere picture of something, because it’s in motion and 3D. Also, it seems to reply later + dream defragging.
I find this interesting, and had postulated that if an individual brain enjoys this sort of chemical splash, brainwave sensation, they constantly look for connections in the deja vu realm, or coincidences that are unlikely yet have occurred, this becomes exciting, and although I don’t know, it appears that it could become an addiction, which might be good depending on one’s job.
Let’s say someone’s job was to protect the President, a prime minister, look for evil doers, terrorists, or a detective? Well, a brain that could do this would be well suited, looking for clues, things out of place, connections, etc. But if it became an internal natural brain chemical addiction, then it could run away with that brain whose new job is to find such clues to thus reward itself with that chemical flush.
A lawyer might like this type of brain, or someone who deals with complexity, computer programming etc. It is one way to think, still, there is a probability in the mathematical realm of improbability too, thus, there will be X amount of improbable events in life, not everything can be or appear to be in complete order.
Needless to say, a high IQ person needs to check their brains and realize that Occam’s Razor must rule the day, and that there will always be random events, and anomalies which they are more suited to find, but that can be a very good thing depending on their occupation. Think on this.
