Is it true that sarcastic people tend to be smarter than those who are not? According to Dr. Simone Shamay-Tsoory and her colleagues at the Rambam Medical Centre in Haifa, sarcasm "requires a carefully coordinated sequence of complex thoughts in parts of brains that handle higher functions." This only means that your brain has to work double-time just to keep up.

In her research paper entitled "The Neuroanatomical Basis of Understanding Sarcasm and Its Relationship to Social Cognition" published in Neuropsychology, Dr. Shamay-Tsoory also stated that sarcastic people usually comprehend others better because "understanding sarcasm requires both the ability to understand the listener’s belief and the ability to identify emotions."
