Experts: Laziness might be a sign of great intelligence
This is exactly the opposite of the active people who may be more physical as they need to stimulate their minds with external activities, either to escape their thoughts or because they get bored quickly.
Researchers from the Florida Gulf Coast University gave a classic test dating back three decades to a group of students, from which the results showed that the thinking group was far less active than the non-thinkers.
The British Psychological Society quoted the study, saying: "Ultimately, an important factor that may help more thoughtful individuals combat their lower average activity levels is awareness.
"Awareness of their tendency to be less active, coupled with an awareness of the cost associated with inactivity, more thoughtful people may then choose to become more active throughout the day."
Despite the stated results, people should be cautious in terms of generalizing the findings should be done with caution due to the small sample of participants, researchers added.
