Kourtney Kardashian at times doesn’t act like she fits with the rest of her family. Now, that’s not to say that Kourtney doesn’t love her family or that she’s trying to distance herself away from them. Instead, many fans and critics would agree that she’s simply different, and in a good way. In fact, many would go as far as saying that Kourtney Kardashian might be the smartest sibling out of the entire Kardashian bunch.
Of course, many critics could debate whether or not that statement is true all day and night, but one thing is for sure: Kourtney is not like the rest of Kris Jenner’s daughters. She’s not trying to establish her own brand in the same way that Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner have. She’s not dying to settle down with her own children and husband the same way Khloé Kardashian has. And she’s certainly not trying to use the Kardashian name to help boost an international modeling career like Kendall Jenner. Instead, she’s doing things her way, even when it doesn’t align with what the rest of her family is doing. With that being said, here are 15 reasons why Kourtney Kardashian might be the smarter sister.
15. SHE’S NOT HUNGRY FOR SUCCESS
Compared to her sisters, Kourtney Kardashian is not as hungry for success or for the public spotlight for that matter. Sure, she posts on social media just as often as Kim, Khloé and the rest of the Kardashians and Jenners do, but she has less of an agenda. When one of her sisters has something important to celebrate, she doesn’t try to steal their thunder like certain other members of her family (hint, hint, Kim).
Kourtney could easily fall of the map or end up in celebrity obscurity and no one would even notice. In fact, Kourtney has said that she has plenty of other projects in the pipeline that she would like to pursue one day instead.
Kourtney once said (via The Huffington Post): “Someday, if I have more time, that’s a passion I’d love to pursue ― fixing up another house, showing other people how it’s done. When I fill out a form at passport control I always struggle with what to say when it asks for my profession: businesswoman or TV personality or mum ― I mean, number one is always mum. I do become a recluse once in a while. It’s so nice to just be at home and to not have to deal with the outside world.”
14. SHE’S NOT IN A HURRY TO SETTLE DOWN
If there’s one thing that we’ve learned about Kourtney Kardashian over the years, is that she’s not in a hurry to settle down. She’s been on and off with her ex Scott Disick for years but she finally pulled the plug on their relationship last year. Even though she shares three children with him, she doesn’t feel the need to get married the same way her sisters Kim and Khloé do.
Plus, we’ve all seen Kourtney and Scott together and in front of the cameras, right? There’s a reason why their relationship seemed like such a train wreck all the time. Simply put, they are just too incompatible with one another.
Kourtney doesn’t want to go through all that noise of getting married just to divorce a few short years later. It wouldn’t be fair to her, to Scott, or their three children.
Scott once told US Weekly back in 2011, “There have been times where I wanted to get married more than she did, and maybe there were even times when she wanted to get married more than I did. But at this point, I just don’t think it really changes anything. We have what we need, so that’s enough.”
