3 thoughts on “Clever vs. intelligent?”

  1. To be clever is to be quick witted, original, or bright.

    To be intelligent
    A) The capacity to acquire and apply knowledge.
    B) The faculty of thought and reason.

    I’m somewhat slow witted so I’m definitely not clever. When I have a dictionary to define the information that is presented to me I tend to do alright.

    I was once told that intelligence was like the processing power in a computer and wisdom was the information on the hard drive. I suppose cleverness is simply well written software.

    Any thoughts on this computer analogy?


  2. He makes reference to the Black Sabbath song “Paranoid” in the first paragraph. But Ritchie Blackmore was the guitarist in Deep Purple, not Black Sabbath. What a noob. Obviously not intelligent.
