What makes an individual smart?
Posted 8/15/12
Observation and concentration skills.
If you can fully I mean FULLY concentrate on something you can accomplish it.

Some ppl are born with high concentration skills, they can use a huge part of their brain, of course that geniuses .. Others born .. Normal, have to work to unlock these part of the brain, them called smart.. Haha i dont kno if im making sense but i think they made a movie about this ..

honestly when it really comes down to it and i ask myself why is that person smart to me i say how the fuck should i know, because really i don't know what a makes a person smart. I mean after all being considered smart is a completely relative idea, because you can always be considered smarter than somebody else and dumber than somebody else, but in truth as i said, i don't know what it means to be smart, because it's a relative term. Meaning it can really only be identified and disclaimed when comparing two beings of equal capabilities.

A person could have the best grades and performance and still be ten times the fool.

On the flipside, one could have not even a pinch of education, and be wise beyond the ages.

It's all a variable. I feel what truly makes a person smart is what he or she can share to inspire others through guidance or instruction from academic to the everyday issues of life and of course...the way one would approach a myriad of situations/problems...smartness can come in many forms.

I'm not naturally bright I just worked hard in school.

However I'm smart in my own ways and quick witted with comebacks and I see things before others catch on if that makes sense.

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

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


Intelligence of both kinds, cerebral and emotional intelligence, is nothing more than a measure of the rate at which you can absorb and distill (process) information.

Some say you cannot be both uneducated and intelligent. This is wrong. You can be highly intelligent and uneducated, it's just that you're utterly worthless in such circumstance.

No matter how crafty you are, nothing can be accomplished without information. I think movies and television say a lot about how stupid people think, when they depict the "brainy" guy accomplishing tasks without any relevant data to calculate, or any information whatsoever on the machine he's trying to operate. Super computers are only super in that they're great at crunching numbers, super-smarts are no different.

It's too bad the word wisdom has been given over to moronic religious types whose only knowledge is how to bullshit people with their circular logic. If they hadn't co-opted our word, we could use it exclusively to define intelligent people who've absorbed a lot of information. As it stands now, there's nothing wise about the word wisdom if it can be applied to religious assholes who postulate a big bang without being able to do the relevant calculations, or postulate abiogenesis of life without an understanding of molecular chemistry.

I think my other head makes me stronger.

It gives me a sense of urgency and motivation. :)

I will not be a penis apologist!

Let me discuss this with my "colleague" to see if this title is appropriate.
