Are you educated?
Yeah sure :bleh:
Uh... "Education" and "smart" have no relation to eachother. I'm extremely intelligent and attending post-secondary at the moment.
I mess up.... I meant educated, not smart!
Sorry for mistake. I'll try to fix it.
Wisdom and intelligence are not the same things and whether you get a good education or not is pretty much a lottery although those from wealthier backgrounds seem to get more tickets.:smile:
Yes, but in modern society almost everyone has the potential to become well-educated due to the mass of resources available to the population at large: the internet and libraries being obvious repositories of learning. If you have the will, there's usually a way.
Below average. I've learned more from reading the back of cereal boxes than almost any of the exam training camp sessions I've sat through.
Re: Are you educated?
I did. I'm dumber'n a post and don't give a shit. why should I :laugh:
lotta reading material on them boxes. I generally need a magnifier. I likes the
ones that list the ingredients as.... "cereal"
but there aint many o them.
well my education is only an associates degree, but I know I am smarter then most people
I think being smart comes from life experiences and trying to achieve a peace for yourself and trying to think for yourself
I dont believe just because you have a bachelors degree or a masters degree that makes you smart, there are alot of stupid doctors and lawyers out there(most of them if you ask me) just because they can read a book and memorize some things doesnt make them smart(as they are motivated by money), like I said thinking for yourself and feeling for yourself makes you smart, not studying to get a piece of paper
In terms of knowledge, I suppose so. In terms of being able to learn the way these schools try and teach material, no.
i'm educated and smart
I believe I'm very stupid.
I like the way you think, sir! I know a Consultant Psychiatrist who charges £300 an hour and he can barely write a fucking letter.
For education I voted Good. For Intelligence I think I'm above average, I'm no genius unfortunately. But I do have common sense, and seeing as how it's not so common nowadays, I'm proud of it. :biggrin:
I have a BS in Business Administration, a Master's of Science in Taxation and can put the letters CPA after my name. I'm a modern day mandarin, in other words. That's me skulin'.
As to something like Spearman's g, which is supposed to measure "general intelligence?" I suspect I fall somewhere between between pond scum and horseshoe crabs. Horseshoe crab on a good day, pond scum otherwise.
And in terms of evolutionary fitness? Somewhere between Steller's Sea Cow and Dodo birds. Only the most absurd of historical conditions could have vomited forth my ridiculous sub-species, what Mencken called the boobus Americanus and I have a vague awareness I suspect my time is rapidly passing. A vague awareness I hypothesize that is all too similar to that felt by dodos when Europeans introduced dogs, cats and rats to Mauritius.
Any intelligent person can see that "America as we know it", is going the way of the Dodo, and not just in terms of general intelligence. :wink:
my "education" is below average; very below actually. i stopped attending school in 9th grade. but despite, i believe i'm still "smart" and would condiser myself to really be above average in the intelligence department... agree or disagree... that's my opinion.
