Often it is seen or heard that some people are 'smarter' than others. It the smartness a result of genetic inheritance or is it something that a person acquires over time through knowledge, education and experiences? What does it really mean to be intelligent? It is when you know a whole bunch of content from the textbook? Or is it when you are able think in practical situations?
Take two people for an example. Let's say that they both live in the same environment, receive the same education through the same teachers and both try equally as hard to learn. But one of them is more 'intelligent' than the other in the sense that he/she gets higher mark in their exams. Now is that person's 'intelligence' inherited genetically or something that he/she learnt?
Thanx for commenting....
@urooj, yeah ur rite.....it does depend of the minds capability but wouldn't u also say that everyone is born with the same amount of potential. Its just how they develop and nurture that potential which then results in ur 'intelligence'.
