Intelligence is a combination of the two, in my opinion. I've run into book nerds who couldn't change a tire and I've run into "street geniuses" (to coin a phrase) who couldn't write their name. :)
Who said I was intelligent....
I just get by on good looks. And I'm well hung.
Hard to say. God gave me a strong memory which allows me to retain a lot of what I read or am taught. However, I'm a "hands-on" person who learns from doing (most of my "skills" are self-taught - trial and error). Add this to being highly logically minded and that's where my intelligence comes from.
I was born intelligent so i don't have to read books and don't have to experience
I think I have a good balance of both formal education and life experience to draw from. Having said that I think that I have learned far more important lessons outside the classroom
Most certainly from experience. I have a graduate degree from the school of trial and error.
Thank you. The rate I'm going with my screw-ups I'll have my doctorate before you know it.
Both. Book smarts can only take you so far. The true test is putting what you know into practice in life.
And I know you have lived through many and are still standing. GIve yourself a high 5 and keep marching on proudly. :D
Books can give you knowledge,but life experience is the real test.Just my thought...
Idk lol. But i try to like take everything in.
Both. Books provide information that has gained me intelligence that experience cannot, and vice versa.
I'm a consummate reader. My thought is that a person who doesn't read and can, is no better off than a person who can't read. I think it was Wordsworth who said there is an implied contract between the author and the reader.
I completely agree with you on that. It is one of the many things that I have learned from reading, and also, from having put into practice.
I bit of both.. mainly experience though
both in balanced proportions
Both - I'm an avid reader but I try to learn as much from my experiences as I can - not saying I get it right all the time.....:P
I've read many books and experienced many things. It would seem that my failures in intelligence have led me to wisdom.
