Not really. Most of the people I personally know that would be considered exceptionally intelligent, are very universal. To me, the word smart is a very defined word. Implying that one who is smart is exceptionally knowledgeable. One who is smart, it not necessarily intelligent.Of course, do you think your definition of 'smart' is universal?
Thankyou Kurdt. This thread definitely taught me that there are many interpretations of the words smart and intelligence. I also now fully sympathize with my father for what he went through during my toddler years.Playing the definition card is useless. Most people get obscenely irritated when people ask them to define terms but it is only natural if a conversation is to remain coherent that everyone knows exactly what they're talking about. So much time is wasted over minutiae if terms are not defined. B. Elliot made his point and thats that. This thread is ancient so I doubt we'll get to see what the OP actually meant by smart.
You, I, and everyone else realizes that as well.Bill Gates, perhaps, because he is smart enough to realise you can make money out of this "microcomputer" thing.
The question is who is the smartest person alive today, not who is the richest person alive today.He is certainly the most successful in terms of getting rich, which is how success is normally measured in the modern, capitalist world.
