Do you think it's grades, abilities, how hard they work/try, IQ, etc.

I didn't see anyone already having this topic posted.

being smart means a quick thinker, and you become a quick thinker on a certain field once you gain a lot of experience on that certain field
so for me being smart in other words is that your an efficient worker on certain task or tasks

You know that one really smart guy at your school that knows everything about everything?
Yeah, that guy is on a whole different level.

Every individual is different.
From birth, everything should be considered (How the brain developed, if your mom ever dropped in on the head, any traumatizing experiences throughout your life.)
Idk what I'm trying to say.

I guess...

Knowledge is power.

In all honesty someone who has an open mind but is also aware of the obvious.

FOR EXAMPLE: God this acclaimed higher being COULD exist but all logic would point to this not existing.

Also you must only drink Dr.Pepper.

Oh man, this is pretty much why I fuckin' hate the word smart. Too vague to be worth a fuck

well it depends on what you define as smart.
there's varying levels.

I'm not amongst any of them

depends on your definition of smart...

from my knowledge the smarter people in the world are those who have been willing to break away from conventional methods.

fuck common sense. try something no one else has ever tried on a daily basis.

at the worst you will just die which is something we all do eventually.

Brainwashing material that i hate but i still <3 you.

Being smart is one stops comparing everything and can be selfless and happy with what the world gives him.

And similarly, Socrates famously said “the only true knowledge lies in knowing that you know nothing”.

you'll have to be more specific, everyone has their strengths and weaknesses.

some may learn fast, some may remember longer, some might just know skills that can be useful in that one area. the only dumb people are the ones who want to remain ignorant because they believe they are smart enough. and the incredibly lazy that ask for money at traffic lights.
