Which Zodiac Sign Is The Smartest

Is there one zodiac sign that is the smartest of them all? It depends on what type of intelligence you are looking for.

How does one measure the intelligence of another person? Do you test their knowledge with standardized tests? Or do you test their primal instincts when they are placed in life or death situations?

Which zodiac sign is the smartest?

The answer is infinite and I do not think we will ever be able to determine a zodiac sign's intellect based on one test or dangerous circumstance.

But at the end of the day, Sagittarius rules them all.

Not only does the Sagittarius zodiac sign appreciate the world in its entirety, but the Sagittarius will do everything in their power to fight for the rights of those who are wrongly targeted.

Once a Sagittarius is fully developed and has a true sense of themself and the world, their spiritual world will also open up and they will know what is good and what is bad.

Intelligence is not only measured by one's capability of solving basic arithmetic but knowing that there are bigger issues than their own that needs to be accounted for.

Our hats go off to you, Sagittarius. You truly are a star!

But other zodiac signs are smart too, and they may not be a Sagittarius zodiac sign.

Whenever we think of the geniuses of our history and modern-day era, we think of greats like Albert Einstein, master of mathematics, Neil deGrasse Tyson, the most well-known astrophysicist, and many, many more!

Anyone who uses their logic to solve problems (ie equations, measurements, etc.) is intelligent.

Respectfully, anyone who is so emotionally in tune with the world and those living in it is just as intelligent.

The point is, we can't measure intelligence solely on solving difficult math problems.

According to Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences, he suggests there are other categories of learning than the original three we are familiar with— visual, auditory, kinesthetic.

Gardner has found that there are a total of nine intelligences and they are:

  • verbal-linguistic
  • logical-mathematical
  • spatial-visual
  • bodily-kinesthetic
  • musical, interpersonal
  • intrapersonal
  • naturalist, and
  • existential
