  1. IF the words SMART, ERUDITE are understood in a narrowly specific conventional sense, then such conventional names are quite legitimate.

    But these words often have a much broader interpretation-smart or erudite in many ways.

  2. Erudition is knowledge of a large amount of information about the surrounding world, culture, history, etc. A polymath is someone who knows a lot (respectively, reads a lot, watches a lot, etc.)

    A person who knows the exact sciences well can be called an intellectual. Intelligence is the ability to think, erudition is the knowledge of a large amount of information from different spheres of life.

    And the word “smart” is generally relative and evaluative. A cat can also be smart.

  3. No way! Your Honor!!! Since Mind, Smart meaning, smart manifestation, etc. are connected with a very correct format, hidden from most people.And very correctly…well, well-read to call well-read, erudite erudite.Smart exactly, not so soon is given,and even manifests itself even less often!

  4. The author doesn't even know what he's talking about.

    To begin with, mind and intellect are very different things.

    He talks about mathematics and physics, claiming that those who are well versed in these sciences are smart.

    But in reality, they can be absolutely stupid. Because the mind is not intelligence, but a more everyday quality, usually (but not always) associated with the ability to earn money and provide yourself with comfortable conditions. Well, anyway, that's what they mean when they say, ” If you're so smart, why aren't you so rich?”

    In general, the mind is not only intelligence, but also the ability to avoid difficulties, a balanced psyche that does not allow you to do sudden impulsive and harmful actions. In short, the mind is a set of properties of character and thinking that allows you to go to your goal in the most optimal way.

    But the goal is different for everyone. The funny thing is that people often don't understand their goal. An academician may be a genius in the field of science, but he may not understand his REAL goal – to get married and raise descendants (at least not consciously). And in the end, he remains a fool that everyone makes fun of.

    There are other silly things in the article, for example, that intelligence is not related to knowledge. The author clearly does not understand that the brain is not a computer, in which the memory is separate, and the processor is separate. It is knowledge that forms the process of perception and information processing. And the more knowledge, the more ways the brain finds to solve non-standard problems, using the method of analogy.

  5. Intelligence, erudition and erudition are not strictly defined terms, but rather subjective assessments of a person. But this does not mean that they can be applied in any way, it means that there is no strict division between when reading begins and when intelligence begins.

    Erudition is a deep knowledge in any field. Erudition is closely connected with a person's memory, with his ability to remember and reproduce information from memory. We are talking about a person with great knowledge – an expert, an erudite person. By reading a lot of books, it is quite possible to become an erudite person in the field of literature – to know the writers, the books they wrote, the plot and characters of the books. An example of using erudition is a quiz game. But the winner of the quiz can not be said to be a very smart person. Yes, remembering a lot, but that's not the mind yet.

    Reading is also associated with memory. Its differences from erudition are that reading gives side bonuses in the field of language proficiency – the so-called innate or acquired literacy, the ability to easily express your thoughts and a large vocabulary. But if you just swallow books without thinking about their content, then it will not add to the mind. Well-read and smart are not synonymous.

    Now I want to talk about thinking. Thinking is what helps a person solve problems. This is a simplified definition. The simplest example of using thinking without using memory is playing minesweeper. Or sokoban, if the level is unknown. A person who quickly copes with the solution of a new task is quick-witted. But smart is not smart yet.

    And the final touch to the picture of an intelligent person is perception. This is grasping what is happening around you in the form of images. It is closely related to attention, thinking, memory and mental state of a person. About a person who is doing well with perception, we say: “catches on the fly.” �

    The combination of perception, thinking and memory gives the intellectual level of a person. It can be high, then they say that the person is smart. High intelligence=intelligence.�

    You can read a lot of books and be a well-read person, but not be able to draw conclusions, i.e. not be able to think. A well-read person may not have a great mind. A person who knows physics and algebra can easily grasp on the fly, effectively solve problems based on knowledge from memory – be smart. And at the same time be well-read.Or not to be.) That is, erudition, erudition, and intelligence are not mutually exclusive concepts.
