For example, Pisces’ are known as the kind, selfless friendly bunch. Leos are fiery and confident, and Scorpios are the sexy ones. But despite the different traits associated with each, have you ever wondered which sign is the most intelligent?

Well, according to new research one sign outshines them all when it comes to intellect and if you’re born between 21 May and 20 June, it’s you. That’s right, Gemini is the most intelligent sign according to a study carried out by GoCompare.

The price comparison website worked out the outcome by looking into how many Nobel Prize winners from each star sign have come out on top since the famous awards launched back in 1901. They found that Gemini was the most common sign among winners, with a whopping 97 born under it – including the legendary Bob Dylan. So, congratulations Geminis, you’re proven geniuses.

The sign was closely followed by Libra, who had 93 of its members win a Nobel Peace Prize, while Virgos were ranked third most intelligent star sign with 88 winners.

See the full list below: 

Gemini (May 21-Jun 20) – 97 winners
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22) – 93 winners
Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22) – 88 winners
Cancer (Jun 21-Jul 22) – 81 winners
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – 76 winners
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – 73 winners
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21) – 71 winners
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) – 66 winners
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) – 65 winners
Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22) – 64 winners
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21) – 64 winners
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19) – 57 winners

If you’re a Capricon, you might want to look away now. Turns out only 57 of you have won a Nobel Peace Prize placing last on the list which ultimately makes you the least intelligent star sign according to GoCompare‘s study. But don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time to change that.
