Intelligence



May 1, 2012

Being bubbly does not inhibit intelligence. Being out going does not inhibit intelligence. Being goofy does not inhibit intelligence. Being carefree does not inhibit intelligence. Being bad at math does not inhibit intelligence. Being awful at science does not inhibit intelligence. Intelligence is based upon more than just grades. And simply because someone can act goofy and cheeky does not mean they lack the intelligence those around so seem to uphold. Intelligence is based upon having the ability to solve problems, to think logically but with a soft heart. To recognize right from wrong and to be cognizant of the decision to act maturely and to act upon that decision. Intelligence is being able to distinguish what is going to get you far in life from what is going to kill you. It’s more than just being able to solve a math problem or make a good grade on an exam. Intelligence and smartness evolves from knowledge of the world and how to make the most of it. Goofing around and cracking jokes as the center of attention does not make one a selfish ditz. It means that amongst the knowledge within one can still choose to live life in a way that brings a smile, and that too in intelligence.
