I have often hear and observe that intelligent people talk less and listen more. what is your take on this... Also, are introverts more intelligent than extroverts.

Stereotypes. Because a person is a good listener, it may seem like he/she learns a lot or that a person who talks too much is so busy yapping that they can't possibly learn anything. But that isn't necessarily the case. Some times us introverts only pretend to be listening. In reality we're sleeping with our eyes open.

@cupkitties Wise words! It's easy to appear intelligent if you don't say anything. As someone has already said, these are stereotypes.

I can write a lot if I want to after reading something, but as for actual talking, I am more of a listener.
