New Research Claims That People With Depression Are More Intelligent
Virginia.— A new study by the University of Virginia has concluded that people who are always depressed are more intelligent.
To perform the study, scientists took information from 6,666 people. Half of them were always depressed, whereas the other half were always smiling at everything. Then, they compared the IQ of the depressed people with the IQ of the people who were always happy. The result was shocking. Turns out depressed people are more intelligent.
“At least 66.6% of the depressed people had higher IQ than the ‘happy people'”, said Gary Cockburn, leader of the study. He kept going: “I mean, it’s not like correlation implies causation, but I think this time it’s obvious”, said the non-biased man who has been depressed for about 54 years, which is coincidentally his age.
