If it was hard to muster the energy to read this, then there may be great news for you. New research suggests that people who spend their time lazing about tend to be more intelligent than their busy-body companions. Researchers from Florida Gulf Coast University say the study's results may suggest that high-I.Q. individuals tend to get bored less easily, meaning they spend more time lost in thought. Meanwhile, their counterparts tend to get bored more easily and respond to that boredom with physical activity.
The study was published in the Journal of Health Psychology and, despite a somewhat small sample size, the results have been called "'highly significant' and 'robust' in statistical terms," according to The Independent. Lazy people didn't even have to get off the divan to achieve this moral victory.
