Different forms of intelligence...

Post by DRock82 on Tue May 24, 2016 9:48 pm

Which do you feel is more important?

- Overall Academic/Scholarly/Scientific Intelligence
- Business Intelligence
- Street Smarts

Obviously, everyone would LIKE to say all three, which is a given, but for debates sake, which ONE of the three do you feel is the most beneficial for success in life?

That's a good question. While I feel like all of them are necessary, I'd probably have to go with Business Skills. When you look at most successful people, the thing that usually separates them from the others is the fact that they know what they're going for. You can have all of the intelligence and street smarts in the world, but none of that matters if you lack a solid game-plan going in. To me, both go hand-in-hand with one another. That's how I see it, but things like this can vary.

Just goes to show how important financial stability and comfort is in this world. You can have all the academic intelligence and street smarts in the world, won't get you very far if you're livin' in a VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER!

Many would argue that academic intelligence and street smarts help with business skills/intelligence to get one even further, but, well now, that's not the point of this thread as I laid out in the first post.

For sure. You have many Ivy League graduates who've graduated at the top of their class and still have issues in the world.

I says Overall Academic/Scholarly/Scientific Intelligence. You have a mass variety of skills and knowledge. Which I feels is needed to be most successful in life.

Oh, dude, don't I know dat shit! If I had a nickel for every time I heard of an engineering or law graduate working at McDonald's.... Well...... I'd have enough for a Quarter Pounder, which is like 3-4 bucks!

Of course a lot of that has to do with the economic issues the U.S. has faced off and on again since 9/11, so yeah, not really the graduates fault...

I can see that as well... That choice seems to open the biggest avenues for improvement because if someone is truly educated in the academics, they will find a way to become successful in business and street smarts through academic research, and thus, life experiences.

Depending if their career choice is business, they would probably have only general knowledge on business as well with street smart. Which seems to be a good combination of the two.

@MysticGoku

Really!? I haaaaad...... no idea! Razz

STOP SELLING CRACK TO DEM KIDS, BOY!!!


Really though, this is supposed to be the serious talk forum, so I better add something of intelligent value here... lol

From what you have told me, MG, your style of business smarts has gotten you pretty far, and I mean that literally. All the countries you have visited in your business ventures is insane! You have definitely made it work for you, So, despite your lack of a full education and not having total street smarts, you are an example of how far business smarts can get you.

Business smarts are probably the best way to make money, while the other two forms are complimentary to help one get even further with it.
