Top 10 Things That Make People Smart


The Top Ten

1 Imagination

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

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

My imagination is crazy, mostly full of my OCs which include humans, dragons, etc. I base them off real issues I have for example I hate the dark web so I created an OC who is a good hacker and his job is to stop the pedophiles and illegal things on the dark web. Shame that my OCs aren't in reality, but in my imagination they are real, breathe and have emotions.

Imagination is one of the best things ever - Lunala

6 Philosophy

I think philosophically about a lot of things, but "smart" doesn't fit my personal description. - RockFashionista

7 Exploration
8 Analysis
9 Focus

One problem : My mind can't stop imagining random things so it's kinda hard to focus - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

Haha yeah, one thing I'll never have. - RockFashionista

10 Research

Without research, our greatest minds would be in a rut they can't jump from. - PositronWildhawk

The Contenders

11 Pay Attention In School

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

12 Knowledge
13 Education
14 Proper Grammar

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?
