Top 10 Things That Make People Smart
The Top Ten
Hard to choose between this and personal experience. If you don't have an imagination, things like, writing and inventing would never take off in the first place. And with personal experience - you have to make mistakes in order to learn. A smart person learns not to repeat those mistakes... - Britgirl
It's actually a philosophical quote from Albert Einstein that imagination is more superior than knowledge and it's true - Kevinsidis
Being able to think of the most obscure things just in your mind is a very talented skill.
I have a very dark, weird imagination. I'm really not that smart. - RockFashionista
Meditation is key, in my opinion. If you argue, I don't care. I’ll prove that we Buddhists are good. It is used to calm the mind down and to comfortably melt all bad thoughts away from our minds, and to enhance the good ones. A few months ago, I was really depressed because I was brainwashed by this so-called Magic Club, which is sort of a religion of five young girls. I can't believe I listened. Then I discovered meditation from my grandparents. My life is a whole lot better. Now I think there is a bit of heaven/nirvana in everything. Peace is the way. As a Buddhist and a hippie, that was my opinion. What’s your opinion? I’d like to know.

I think philosophically about a lot of things, but "smart" doesn't fit my personal description. - RockFashionista
Haha yeah, one thing I'll never have. - RockFashionista
Without research, our greatest minds would be in a rut they can't jump from. - PositronWildhawk
I have ADHD, which makes it nearly impossible for me to pay attention to anything, especially in school. About 2/3 of everything I know I taught myself. I do not ever allow my ADHD to baracade, postpone, or cease being successful. I would not classify myself as a "genius" by any means, but intelligence is definitely my favorite quality about myself. - RockFashionista
No one has this anymore. I try to encourage people to use good grammar, they never listen! And when I try to help people by correcting their grammar, they get mad at me and call me stupid! Seriously?
Proper English is very important. I, too, encourage people to actually use it, but, of course, they don’t. Proper English shows that you CAN actually speak the correct way. Apparently, most people can’t. - Hermione_Granger220
Duh... - Hermione_Granger220
