A person doesn't have to have a higher education to be intelligent. Curiosity, in my opinion is a sign of intelligence. A person curious to learn new things, curious about other people, new places, philosophies and concepts etc.. Knowledge and wisdom are not the same things. I also rate emotional intelligence very highly - the ability to navigate the vagaries of daily life with a mature, calm, reasoned and rational response that does not impact negatively on others or themselves.

It is unfortunate that we live in society where they put too much emphasize with degree in higher education for their barometer to determine the level of intelligence in evrybody. It would be a blessing to have you as a friend for one can exchange experiences or even learn through you. I would welcome such experience.

Very well put.

Reminds me of my brother and uncle, both have advanced degrees from well known colleges, and neither could hold a job for longer than 30 days because they couldn't get along with people.
