1.)     If you’re an average American, you think you’re smarter than the average American.    At least that’s what the results of a YouGov survey are indicating.   55% of American’s think they are smarter than the average American.    34% of people say they are about as smart as everyone else, while 4% of people in this survey said that they are less intelligent than most people.      And, men are much more likely to say they are "much more intelligent" than the average American than women.


2.)     If you want to live a long and healthy life, there’s good news - finding a sense of purpose may be just what you need. New research published in Psychological Science suggests that having a greater sense of purpose may lead to a longer life, regardless of how old you are.     The findings were based on a study of over 6,000 participants who were tracked during a 14-year period.    Researchers found that the correlation between having a purpose and living longer held true for younger, middle-aged and older study participants, alike.
