Smartness is a different concept from intelligence because it does not mean having a high level of intelligence but it generally refers to the efficient use of intelligence that a person has. There are diverse opinions on this issue. Some people believe that having a high level of IQ means being smart whereas others claim that acting right can be associated with being smart. However, since smartness differs from intelligence, it cannot be said that smartness is limited to one type of intelligence. That is to say, being smart is not equal to having and using only one type of intelligence, but having all types of intelligences which include practical, social and emotional intelligences as well as using them effectively.

Persons with a Realistic style expect that “Sometimes I am successful, sometimes not”. They attribute the reasons for success rather temporally unstable and situation-related. For persons with a Humble style, the explanation is “This time I was lucky”. They attribute success to external factors and experience only low levels of control when using computers
In American society, the white Americans used the basis of race to arrange people into various levels of classes. “Race was a useful mechanism for determining who should have access to wealth, privilege, respect, loyalty, and power, and who should not” . Each class represented the ranks, status, and wealth of an individual in society. Obviously, the white race sat on top, receiving the highest amount of privileges such as voting rights and affluence while the rest were below receiving less than what the white race receives such as poor education, low-paid jobs, and poor living conditions. During the colonial periods, colonies, such as America, “structured hierarchical societies in which Europeans stood at the top and the conquered and enslaved peoples had various positions below”.
He goes on to say in the second misperception, “college graduates are finding it harder to get good jobs with liberal arts degrees”, but “the recession has no differentiated among major fields of study in its impact” (192). Ungar believes students who focus on one particular field of study do not learn necessities such as writing and literary texts, and this puts them at a disadvantage when compared to a liberal arts graduate. While long-standing jobs, such as doctors and lawyers, will not become extinct soon, liberal arts graduates have a better chance of employment in most areas. 95% of employers surveyed would give hiring preference to graduates with skills to contribute in the workplace. 74% would recommend a liberal arts education to a young person they know today, so they will be prepared for success in today’s global economy.
Why is it that so many intelligent people are considered lower that those who have no intelligence book wise? Society had made the image that the intellectualists of this nation have no place in the social aspect. In “America Needs Its Nerds”, author Leonid Fridman asserts that the American attitude anti-intellectualism must end for America to remain being a competitive force with other countries. Fridman was right when he said that geeks do not play a significant role in the society. One of his examples was that many foreign countries revere their professors and scholars, but in America we revere our celebrities and ball players.
Cultural deprivation theorists would blame this on the lack of parental guidence and encouragment to succeed in education. This could of been developed from the results of an experiment A famous experiment was one carried out by Willis Douglas. He claimed that parental interest was the most important factor; he claimed that middle class parents had higher expectations than working class parents and they attatched higher values.

In defining intelligence, Galton proposed that higher races would continue to evolve as intelligence is an evolutionary trait however lower races would cease to develop. Consequently as intelligence is inherited he stated that races that were more intelligent should reproduce and those who were part of the ‘lower race’ should stop reproducing. Galton’s theory of eugenics had powerful consequences, Laughlin (1922) developed the ‘Model Eugenical Sterilization Law’ in which he postulated that people such as those who were feeble minded, insane, criminals should be sterilized. Laughlin collected research which supported his argument; for example, the Kullikak Family, where one feeble minded woman lead to generations of equally feeble minded and defective people (Goddard, 1913). Subsequently, the ‘Model Eugenical Sterilization Law’ and the ‘American Immigration Restriction Act’ were heavily praised by Hitler as it was considered a way to exclude ‘undesirables’ due to race and hereditary
Seems like the GOP does not understand that even though the average family can’t afford to send their kids to a top tier university does not mean they do not want to take advantage of early learning. Romney, the GOP nominee, was talking to students in Ohio and told them if you want to go to college to just borrow money from their parents. That statement along with the GOP opposing the Presidents student loan reform shows that the party is not connected with average American. Also part of the education cuts was to limit funding for public schoolteachers. Finding and keeping good teachers cost money.
Like Nixon, Clinton mislead the country about the affair, showing that politicians are not always honest and are deceptive. Conspiracy theories about 9/11 being conducted by the government in order to have rationale to declare war on Iraq, may also have caused low external efficacy. Essay 2: If America becomes more ethnic, the culture becomes more diverse but this comes with costs. The main cost would be having to fund education more in order to break the language barrier. Different teachers would have to hired to teach students to speak English.
