The problem with equality in the world is always diversity. With diversity, there will be differences in appearance, actions, one of the most important, intelligence. The question is, what is real intelligence? Is it knowing the most out of everyone? Or is it the quickest learner?
The intelligence that most people really think about when they talk about intelligence and smarts are if they know something or they don’t. It makes sense because the smartest people have good grades and they get good grades because they know stuff. Right? The only thing is that some people are smart, not naturally, but from experience and that lightbulb after 23 years of age. Adding, if there was a definition of smart, then there should be a line saying what you need to be smart. There is no such thing. We need a definition that can fit the requirements well.
Maybe we have been thinking that intelligence is all about what you know when really, it should be how you learn it in the first place. This definition of smart is to be a quick learner. This kind of makes sense because being a quick learner means you can learn things quickly, which in turn allows you to process more information, and let you know more. This describes more because it helps make a bigger conclusion in the end.
Intelligence is the key to jobs and life, which means it’s important everywhere in life. If we can find real intelligence someday, maybe we won’t have to go to school and instead just get some vaccines and your school days are over. But being a quick learner is sublime too.
