'People who get angry' turned out to be more intelligent than it is actually

People who suddenly get angry with trivial things or who casually touch boobies and the head boils instantaneously exists in the world for a long time. From the latest research that investigated the relationship between "anger ease" of a person and "goodness of the head" reality is revealed that "a person who is angry is thinking of himself as being smarter than it is" .

Angry people are more likely to overestimate their intelligence, study finds

This research was conducted by a research team such as Marcin Zajenkowski, a scientist at the University of Warsaw in Poland. Zajenkowski explains the relationship that connects the two perspectives of "anger ease" and "wisdom", Zajenkowski said, "In a recent project, I examined the relationship between anger and various cognitive functions" I am talking.

Mr. Zajenkowski said that he was confirmed that "anger" was different from negative emotions such as "sorrow", "anxiety", "mood stagnation", etc., while researching past literature. Zajenkowski's research concludes that anger is an "approach-oriented" oriented towards more opportunities, optimistic risk perception and overall optimistic bias .

In the subsequent study, 528 students participated in the experiment as subjects. First, the subject answered a questionnaire asking how often and how temperate she was. Next, after answering the questionnaire asking how much intelligence was equipped to myself, I received an actual intelligence test.

Together with these results, many of the people who answered "easily angry" in the first questionnaire found that there was a tendency to estimate their cognitive abilities at a higher level. On the other hand, it seems that people who tend to be nervous also tend to think that their cognitive ability is lower than the actual situation, even among people with a tendency to be angry.

The research team points out that the concept of "narcissism (self-love)" can be mentioned as a keyword explaining this trend. Mr. Zajenkowski says on this point, "The personality of temperamental temperament is related to 'narcissistic illusions' (self-loving illusion)'.

In this research, "It is easier for angry people to have self-love being stronger and to estimate their own intelligence at a higher degree", but on the other hand, that "anger" is related to actual intellectual level It is important to grasp the point that association is not recognized. From the research, the relation between the two elements "anger" and "self-love" was recognized, but it is still clear how the two elements interact with each other in practice It is a stage where detailed research in the future is awaited.

What I did not investigate in this research is that "the cognitive ability will be affected by the momentum of actual anger" can be cited. In this time, anger is evaluated as one of personal characteristics, but anger is often manifestation of temporary emotions. In the future, by investigating the point that "People with a temperament that does not get angry are actually angry when actually being angry, how they perceive their own intellectual ability", the relationship between anger easiness and intellectual ability It is said that research to understand multifaceted understanding will be required.
