how can you be knowledgeable if you're not smart?


If you're not intellectually sharp but you know a lot of things because of, perhaps, experience. If I may put it in a situation analogous to computers, a smart person would be a computer with high processing power while a knowledgeable person would be a computer with a lot of information stored in its hard disk.

Consequently, many young people are smart but not knowledgeable ( I would like to put the special blame on this to a social phenomenon called "Dilution of Knowledge and Information" (Socrates + Faust)). In certain cases, gifted individuals are born with a capability to be very, very smart at a young age. These prodigies can be, for example, be exceptional in mathematics or logic, thus a very specialized field. But in comparison, a well-read or well-traveled average person of, say, age 40, would still be more knowledgeable than that young prodigy (but of course he also have the potential to be knowledgeable).

I would say, smartness comes with intelligence, which comes from one's capability or power to think. Major factor in intellect is most of the time genes or something that's innate. But there are many ways to develop one's intellectual power as well, like using your mind all the time i.e. play IQ games, solve puzzles, Rubik's cube, logic stuffs, strategical problems, etc. It's like practising your mind. (It has also been found that individuals who use their minds more have senile dementia delayed in their later years.) So its not completely unfair to us people who weren't born smart (:

On the other hand, knowledge is something you acquire as you know more, in contrast to that which is principally (but not completely) inborn.

Books = Knowledge = Power = Corruption = Crime
and Crime doesn't pay!

Therefore, reading will make you go broke!

The world says knowledge can be found in books and academics. But true wisdom means taking that knowledge and applying those facts to your life.
The word smart is not the same as being wise. It doesn't matter if you're grades are all A's. That may make you smart, but it doesn't make you wise. Being wise involves making good decisions with the knowledge you have.



well that is correct. you already answered your question
