    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. :)

    Intelligence is one's ability to overcome one's education...

    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. :lol:

    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. It is easier to treat people as objects to be manipulated if you have never learned any other way to see them." Martha Nussbaum

    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.

    There is a vast difference between education and intelligence....Both involves knowledge but having different different Concepts...Intelligence is the natural ability that we have from our childhood....But education is the thing that is an artificial intelligence for us..This is not natural But we have to get it through our intelligence...
