I love the fuck out of this answer.
@ManOnFire it's untrue...
@Sabretooth How so?
@ManOnFire i'm neither weak nor stupid. sometimes, such places and such situations are unavoidable. street smarts can also help you not be taken advantage of... i doubt book smarts do much situations where action is required or for cops and the like who deal with life-threatening situations daily.
@Sabretooth You can read my answer for clarification.
Yeah! Smart people are smart enough to avoid the trap of being born into poverty 🙄
Famous athletes, all kinds of businesses men, several politicians and innovative clever people in general are street smart, and are the exact opposite of book smart but they are inifitely more successful than the book smart nerds they employ. Being book smart doesn't mean jack shit if you are a beta bitch dork who doesn't know anything about how the world works.
@Grandsalamander trump has a certain degree of... street smarts. He's a poor example-but how many has he conned? He's dumb as a post-though I was smart enough to see him as the hateful, crazy and incompetent person that he is. Street smarts provides you insight.
@Grandsalamander I knew we were looking at massive problems... still hasn't kept me from being shocked or saddened by all this craziness

Book smart is nothing but BS memory retention
Actually if you define intelligence by ability to learn, far to many 10 year olds are far smarter than most adults will ever be.
@sensible27 nobody is really smarter than anybody because this world is a simulation everything you are taught is a bunch of BS you are taught from textbooks then the TV runs your life and people think they know everything there is to be known when really there are so many secrets out there and secret knowledge most people will never even know.
Depends on how you define smart really. Simulation hypothesis is a decent one but if I were you I wouldn't be that certain. If you know those 'secrets' great. The problem with people like you arguing there are 'secrets' is you wouldn't do well if you were away and far from civilization. But you are here and let's say there are 'secrets' (which there probably aren't), why and how are you entitled to them? Just because you are living? If there are secrets discover them yourself don't harrass other about it.
@sensible27 My point is some idiot goes to college for years and becomes a SJW completely brainwashed believes he knows everything about the world. Turns out most of what he thinks he knows is a complete lie. I can guarantee you that 99.9% of humans are morons but they are all know it alls who think they are smart.
@ItalianGuy2021 This basically. Studying for exams and getting an A or B doesn't mean you're smart nor special. That's not a skill nor talent. My parents used to emphasize too much on my school grades and nothing else. I'm not even working on my major. That's 4 years of college wasted.
@Vesuvius87 I made the honor roll in the past and it was nothing special it was memory retention and studying for tests. We live in a system where they want us to be dumbed down and that is what school does.
@ItalianGuy2021 Nowadays with google and youtube, anyone can study for exams and memorize things. I've noticed the more successful individuals were really the C students who didn't stress out over grades or sometimes didn't do some worthless homeworks/assignments.My friend was a C student. She ended up being not just a psychiatrist but has travelled to many places. She actually hated school and found many things they taught worthless.
The problem in todays schools at any level is that in my time common sense was used in the answers to the problems. Today schools use [ error of judgement ] as a principle of learning curve which by the way is [ artificial common sense ] . The answers are indoctrinated propaganda that involve agendas instead of accual interdevopment of resources available for deveopmental growth. Unless trade or carrer staged trading academy's , public schools are just abunch of courses of crap that dismantles and disrupts healthy relationships of learning processes.
This is accurate.
But those aren't street smarts. Those are just every day life smarts that are common sense. Street smarts is more like having sly knowledge of how to trick or use people, how to be whitty, insulting, and sarcastic as if you're still in highschool to try to bring people lower than you who you really feel like are better than you and you hate it, knowing who to go to to get this or that, and how to hookup with somebody on the same day.
Very well said!
@esova thanks😊 its a quote i heard somewhere, i didn't come up with it.
That's not street smarts, that's just life smarts.
Well maybe but a lot of drug dealers can make 2 million quicker than a doctor can even teenagers if they are selling coke or crack.
Just like with everything in life!
Really? I've always just got by being the pretty one in the corner 🤣 so no one will do anything cos I look so innocent 😏🤣

I can handle myself 😏 I got a good toe post sandal to balls kick
