The perception of intelligence is extremely important in human evolution, and as a result, pretty important to your life. Psychology shows that in text, when a middle initial is used, there are positive evaluations of a person’s intellect and abilities. Middle initials are generally saved for more formal contexts like John F Kennedy. One study asked participants to choose academic team partners, and those with middle initials were more likely to be chosen. Middle initial equals increased perceived status. Hey!
