Someone (or several someones) who are messy, disorganized, addicted to Netflix and video games, and find it hard to get up in the morning ... and I suspect living in their mother's basements ... have found some "scientists" to hypothesize that these characteristics indicated they are hyper intelligent.

A Messy Environment:
Psychologist Kathleen Vohs explains, "Disorderly environments seem to inspire breaking free of tradition, which can produce fresh insights."

Or ... they could just be too lazy to clean their room.

Losing Things:
According to "experts", chaotic living spaces actually help highlight priorities, saying. "Losing your passport beneath a pile of clothes indicates you need to do your washing, whilst keys buried beneath mail is a sign you need to open your bills."

Or ... it could mean they are too lazy to put things away.

Addicted to Netflix:
The "experts" offer no reason as to why binge-watching Netflix is a sign of intelligence ... they simply state it as fact.

Or ... it could mean they have no self-control and want the immediate gratification rather without considering how tired they will be the next day. 

Snoozing the Alarm:
Experts say those who hit the snooze button are more intuitive, creative, and clever. I hit snooze on my alarm clock, and I like to think I'm intuitive, creative, and clever ... but it has nothing to do with me hitting snooze and everything to do with the fact that I am not a morning person. And, like watching Netflix, they offer no explanation as to how they came to this understanding ... we're just supposed to take their word for it.

Or ... it could mean, that like me, they're just not a morning person ... or stayed up to late binge-watching Netflix or playing video games.

Video Games:
According to PsychCentral, "People who are addicted to video games have better cognitive skills, social memory, power of reasoning and problem-solving."

Or ... it could mean they are addicted to video games and could benefit from getting a real life!

If these "experts" are to be believed, we owe a lot of slackers an apology!
