Does people is born smart? I think you are born with certain level of intelligence(IQ), but how you stimulate the child to learn it is going to make a big difference in his/her learning process and academical success through his/her whole life. Values like perseverance and honestly must be teach in order to the learning process is integral. But every once in a while you see some boy or girl extremelly intelligent, that learn by himself, that has never been stimulated by his parents to do anything, and it is brilliant, so the debate is, what is more important your IQ? the stimulation that your parents give you? or both?

People are born with God-given skills and talents. It is up to them how they will use and further improve on them.

Enveronment is key in determining weather a person will be smart or not. Parents are a key part of this factor. If a parent spends time with a child, and teaches them important values, chances are those values are more likely to fallow them through adulthood. Self-learners are those who chose to be that way, and its not something nessarly taught.

I believe everyone of us is born with some kind of intelligence in us. Yes, parents' role in stimulating a young child's developing mind is crucial to his future. I know there are kids who are born with high IQ. With the right kind of guidance from parents and teachers, these gifted kids will definitely be able to shine in life later on. Of course, kids with mediocre IQ levels can also be on par with those gifted kids, maybe with just a little bit more of hard work.

smartness of a person depends upon a lot of factors. Genetic- born to a intelligent father/mother or in a family of intellectuals is one factor. Environment- the place you live, institution in which you study, friends you have etc., influence your smartness. Prodigy is also a factor for being smart - a divine gift. It therefore, evolves, according to me that there is no one single factor which is totally attributable to smartness. The reasons are complex and multidimentional.

As far as I am concerned, I do not think peopleare born smart. For me, I think people have the nearly the same IQ which desides us the wiseness. But the the IQ is somehow the same. SO people are not the born smart. They just become smart because of their hardness in the daily life. They try their bestt to make a smart brain.

I agree that heredity does play a big role in one's wit or smartness, but environment is also important. One develops his smartness as he grows older and he picks up from peers and school a lot of stuff. The parents at home also help shape an individual's smartness. So it is an interplay of many forces.

People 's wisdom or not,from the view of the structure of the brain an neural circuits related. Determined by the a priori from genetic factors inherent in the intergenerational transmission of the number of nerve cells, nerve cells,axons extend to where,what kind of pass to use the material,when the produce myelin an so on, the day afer tomorrow can not be changed. However,neural circuits the synapsesin part by the birth an postnatal environmental change.If you continue to give incentives to continuously use the synapses,the number if synapses can be increased . However ,if malnutrition is not increase.Synaptic change is most likely to occur in the human after birth to 3 years old,older mote difficult to occur,bu doesn't occur doesn't mean that people living there will be changes in synaptic.Therefore,no matter how old, as long as wo want to bring a little wiser minds are not too late.

Mostly I think you're born with it. I myself and some people I know don't really have to study to do well in school and "get" things, whereas some people have to study really really hard just to stay at an "average" level of academia. Also, your grammar is horrible. Holy crap.

I believe that we are all smart and as we grow older and become mature, there are some things that we do that are not really very smart enough. And if we do these things, they tend to pull us from improving. I just think that there are so many ways no just about IQ but also when it comes to EQ.

I think that both are an integral part of being smart, but i think that how you stimulate some child, it helps to gets their maximum.

I believe people have some talent when they were born. but I think most intelligence come from the surroundings he live after born. I believe hard work and learing is the only way to be smart and clever. I have see so many kids said have talent when they were very young, but don't sucess at all. I think EQ is more important than IQ, just born baby can't even take IQ test yet!

I think there are people who are born smart. But you need both, IQ and the stimulation. Since IQ is like a weapon, it depends on the user on how to use it or improve it. That is why both is important for growth.

I guess it both. The given would not mean nothing if we do not learn from the environment. But most i guess it is been given by the god. sometimes i watch the news that a mother just eat like usually but she born a brilliant child.

As a general rule, I think our intelligence capacity is born in us. However, I think that we are very much shaped through our environment. I have seen very intelligent people who were "taught" that they were dumb and acted accordingly as they did not know anything else. There are those who are born not so smart but parents required more of them and they succeed. So although we are born with our intelligence our environment plays a key role...

There are few people who are born smart.I feel they are exception and they are gifted by god/nature.They do have amazing capacity to absorb knowledge or their genes carry it naturally.

God has created different kinds of intelligence. Hence it should be nurtured and trained. Some might be gifted with the 'smart' element in their way of thinking but there are more people becoming smart from their experience and how they are being raised by parents and environment.
