London, United Kingdom (Web Desk): A recent study claimed that the people who travel alone are more intelligent than the people who travel with others.
British media reported that the study was conducted by the British Psychological society.
The study also suggested that people living in rural areas are happier than the people living in urban areas. This study was actually based on ‘Savanna theory of happiness’, this theory suggests that people who socialize less are more intelligent and remain happy.
Psychologists compared more rural living to how ancestors once travelled in close-knit, smaller tribes. Basically the lifestyles of hunter-gatherer tribes have formed the evolutionary foundation for what makes people happy now.
They also observed that smarter people spend time alone and take days off for just travelling alone. They contemplate on life and come back with some new experiences.
