some people are actually smart even if they suck at school. seriously there are just moments u go "aaaaaaaahhhh this guy is not as dumb as he looks" theres this guy in my class who barely shows up every other week and everyone makes fun of him for being such a smartmouth dumbass but he still manages to pass every other paper, and the end of years with actually some good results. cuz i actually checked up on his grades for "research purposes". now that is what i call talent.

Here is your answer. You cannot decide whether someone is smart or not. You can only decide if they act smartly or not.

If they do not end all of their sentences with the words 'bro', or 'c***t', among other things. If they do this though, it's as if they are wearing a neon sign reading 'I'M AN IDIOT' above their head.

a person shouldnt decide if someone is smart or not. said person you might categorize as "dumb" might be incredibly knowledgeable in a certain field but lacking in many others and the person you might categorize as "smart" might be lacking intelligence in certain areas as well. But mostly Why do YOU get to decide if someone is smart or not? HUUUUUUUH???

perhaps if he/she talks with sense.. and thinks broad in some aspects.. no one can says if he/she is smart.. it depends on the perception of others.. but i know everyone is smart..

By not being judgmental assholes. I look like a bimbo but am infact doing a degree in engineering. A degree doesn't define smart though, people are smart in different ways. People tend to make fun of artists because "Your kid could do a better painting" well no...actually they couldn't. Do you ever consider the technique/materials used, reason behind it? No. Same principle with other things. I could chant you the periodic table but I wouldn't know the first thing about Picasso or the renaissance period in art for example or anything else outside my studying field. Sorry I just got annoyed when some guys in my class were making fun of the art department -__- dicks. One guy in there has a calculator for a brain but he chose the art path because thats what he wanted to do.

People define 'stupid' differently..some might believe a stupid person is someone who's ideas are so farfetched that they should never be considered; someone who they feel who thinks TOO MUCH about "insignificant" things and too little about "things that really matter." Someone else might define a stupid person as someone who they feel doesn't think enough about anything and everything, as they are unable to talk to them about the topics they want them to talk about. : / Can a stupid person be someone who just judges too quickly? If you're judging all of the time, how can you possibly be moving beyond whatever mommy and daddy taught you?

There is no way to tell how if someone is smart. A person could present themselves as stupid yet they are actually pretty smart, a person attempting to look or be smart might actually be stupid.

I say put them through a mental game. and if they can figure out a hard puzzle or something then they are smart

If you sleep in class all the time and you fail all of your exams, then that is when you are really smart.

Look at them. Bahaha I'm kidding. That's being biased.

But, if they can't answer this riddle probably.

Rich people want it, poor people have it; It is greater than God but worse than Satan?

I think it's a lot easier deciding who is dumb.
