Difference Between Education and Intelligence

Quote:
Education vs Intelligence

There is a vast difference between education and intelligence. Both ideas involve knowledge; however, they are fundamentally different concepts.

Intelligence is an innate and natural ability that we are born with. It involves our natural abilities. Traditionally this was measured with an IQ or intelligence quotient quiz. Psychologists have in recent years come to consider the IQ test too limited to truly measure intelligence and Gardener’s multiple intelligences pedagogy has become more established.

from the OP's link-
The difference between education and intelligence is that intelligence is internal, they are skills and abilities that we have naturally in varying degrees and education is given to us externally through teachers, books, parents and so on. Intelligence is the material that teachers use to educate and shape us and develop our natural intelligence. Summary: 1. Intelligence is intrinsic and an internal force 2. Education is an extrinsic or external force provided by a third party 3. There are many different types of intelligence that are now recognized by psychologists 4. People can be intelligent, but uneducated and vice versa

unfortunately they forgot to point out that the more intelligent individuals learn more quickly, so that while one person may struggle to learn the alloted material in a class another person is also learning other things as well. they also neglected to mention that many types of training have intelligence thresholds, calculus being an easy example.

so it is simple to see that an intelligent person will likely learn more, and more complicated things, given the opportunity to become educated.

Also, one's schooling is no indication of one's wisdom, and intuition often transcends the limitations of reason.

Education does often seem to be training to be stupid in the approved manner.

Economists not suggesting something as simple as 700 year old double-entry accounting being mandatory in the schools is certainly curious. The schools are supposed to produce dumb worker-consumers.

Another aspect of this which is often overlooked is motivation. Having worked forever in a wide variety of roles I am always amazed that the average intelligent person who is self motivated can accomplish so much, while some very bright people fizzle out or are afraid to tackle tough situations. Lazy is not only a word.

"Educators for economic growth will do more than ignore the arts. They will fear them. For a cultivated and developed sympathy is a particularly dangerous enemy of obtuseness, and moral obtuseness is necessary to carry out programs of economic development that ignore inequality.

Difference Between Education and Intelligence

Education and Intelligence are completely different concept, Intelligence is gift of God and not any one can acquire it. But Education is something which any one can acquire.

A demonstration of intelligence can only come from someone being interested in the subject they are looking at, or involved in.

The difference is rather like owning an enormous piece of land (intelligence) versus farming a piece of land (education).

I do definitely agree that the common IQ that most of us think of as raw intelligence isn't a very good measure of overall intelligence, though.

And that is why, I suspect, so many of us (many here I'd wager) have above average IQs, but are not living above average lives.

The other inherent intelligences (interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical, spatial, as examples) ALSO have an enormous impact on life's outcomes.

Difference Between Education and Intelligence

The difference between Education and Intelligence.There is many confusion in the world about education and intelligence. Education is knowledge acquired in formal learning environments, such as school. Intelligence is that actual ability to learn, to acquire, assimilate, and use new knowledge.

Between education and intelligence have a huge difference. Both ideas involve knowledge, however, they are fundamentally different concepts.

Intelligence is an innate and natural ability, we are born. It relates to our natural ability. Traditionally, this is a measured IQ or IQ tests. Psychologists are too limited in recent years the true measure of intelligence and gardeners multiple intelligence teaching has become more mature consideration IQ tests.

Indeed. Makes me think of two of my best friends from college. Both are very bright guys who are doing very well for themselves. One of them is doing better though. He's not as smart as the other guy, but he's one of the hardest workers I know.

this line of thinking comes up over and over again. there are lots of human qualities that are necessary for success (however you want to define it). many, probably most, present in a normal distribution, AKA bell curve distribution. diligence, talent, ambition, intelligence, socialization, physicality etc all play a part. but the contribution of intelligence is much larger than those other factors and indeed the correlation of intelligence to any of the other factors is higher than the correlation of another factor to intelligence. intelligence is a basic necessity to get the most out of those other factors.

education is an opportunity to be exposed to mankind's collected knowledge, in a staged manner that goes from basic concepts to esoteric details, depending on the ability of the student and the length of time studying. most of us (2/3s) fall in the average category of +/- 1 STD in IQ tests. 85IQ to 115IQ. but even that small range is huge when you compare outcomes. the 85IQ student will have a hard time with harder subject matter and will need to have a high 'score' on some of the other traits like diligence (hard working) while the 115IQ student will absorb knowledge almost effortlessly whether he tries hard or not. if you go further out the differences are even more noticeable. a 70IQ student will probably never get past the 'learning to read/ reading to learn' stage, and things like calculus are unfathomable, tax forms only slightly less, and deciphering a bus schedule or reading a map is a chore. the 130IQ student can learn and understand just about any subject they are interested in, they break down information and re synthesize it in novel ways, day-to-day problems are solved in the time it takes to define them.

if you dont believe intelligence matters, a lot, then explain why the military puts a cutoff score of 90IQ on enlistment. they lowered the standards twice before (once on purpose and once by accident) and were so disappointed in the results that the previous higher standards were reinstated.

yes, other things besides intelligence matter, but in the overall picture nothing matters as much as intelligence.
