Go ahead and order that second beer. You deserve it. After all, you’re brilliant.

According to two studies conducted in the United States and United Kingdom, smarter people tend to drink “more frequently and in greater quantities” than their duller, drier peers, according to MSN.com.



In the studies, children’s intelligence was measured and categorized in five groups ranging from “very dull” to “very bright.”

When the participants were assessed later in life, the “brighter” kids were the ones who emptied more glasses more often, according to MSN.com.
