Intelligence is something we all describe and define differently. Many people believe that genetics and social environment play a big role in how intelligent you may become.
Other people believe that you may become intelligent if you just study hard enough, and it is going to take a long time. You can’t just become intelligent over the night. It is only your brain that can limit your abilities to become intelligent.
There is the emotional-, creative- and kinesthetic intelligence and many more. Most people think that if you are good at mathematics, biology, physics
or if you speak a foreign language, you are automatically an intelligent person. My thoughts on the matter are, that they are smart and not intelligent.
For many people, there is no difference between smart and intelligent, because the words seem to be interchangeable. However, there is a difference between the meanings and use of these words.
Smart is an earned status. When we study and learn, we become smarter in the subject matter. Whether we are book smart or street smart, we have to put effort into becoming smarter.
