You already know that wearing glasses really does make you seem smarter, right? Well, here are four more tricks you can do to seem more intelligent to others.
1. According to Forbes, if you use a middle initial, or even several initials, it makes you seem smarter.
2. Use graphs and charts in your meetings or presentations. A study at Cornell had people read two versions of a report about a new cold medication. When the report didn’t have a graph, 67% of people said they believed the information. With a graph, it jumped to 96%!
3. Drink anything other than alcohol. There’s something called “imbibing idiot bias,” and according to Science Direct, just holding a cocktail makes you seem less intelligent, even if you’re completely sober.
4. Speak more expressively. This means don’t be boring and monotone when you speak. People tend to think you’re smarter when you can vary the speed, volume, and pitch of your voice.
