I’ve read some studies that says that smarter people are more likely to notice divergences in social norms because, well they are more cognitively alert, but at the same time I see people who are smart intellectually but who don’t abide by the social norms such as they way they socialise or the way they dress etc? Is this conversely because smart people are motivated by social interactions? So are the people who are more well versed in their social interactions smart and socially inclined or people who are just attentive and are willing to fine tune their body languages?
are not motivated by social interactions*
I wouldn't say there's any correlation. Sure, there are some smart people who don't conform to social norms, but there are just as many "simple" people who don't also.
What do you mean by smart
ye I don't think theres a correlation either. I don't see most famous scientists as being 'weird'. For every eccentric / weird smart person there are a bunch of 'normal' smart people lol

No there’s no correlation, I’ve seen poeple who are intelligent and quite socially inept and then I’ve met people who are intelligent and are social butterflies, no correlation, you can’t generalise all smart people into one category, honestly, where’s the common sense anymore, if you’re looking to categorise yourself I’d say you’re not intelligent, happy?
There is always expections, but yes I'd say so.
