Since I can do most anything that comes along, I must be really dumb. It has been said, I am not smart enough to know I can't do it, so I go ahead and get it done.
Some people are educated well beyond their intelligence level.
Iddee, I feel the same way.
No ruffled pollen hairs intended.
I agree with G3.
Iddee, I know for a fact that you’re not a dummy. There is knowledge that is not found in books but is learned through hard work and time.
There is also a type of intelligence that I lot of people have forgot they have, the ability to thing logically through a problem and to learn from their mistakes.
The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think - rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.
You must learn day by day, year by year, to broaden your horizon. The more things you love, the more you are interested in, the more you enjoy, the more you are indignant about, the more you have left when anything happens.
