What is Intelligence?

A Professor in a Psychology class started on a very serious Topic. The moment he turned towards the White board, one of the students whistled, he turned, looked at the class and asked the Whistler’s name, and there was a wave of silence in the room that a sponge thrown on the floor could be heard.

The Professor peacefully kept the Pen in his pocket saying: “Lecture ends here. I’ll tell you a story to utilize the remaining time”.

And the whole class became interested. He started;

“Yesterday night I tried hard to sleep, but it was miles away from my eyes, so I thought I’d better get petrol in my car, which will save my time next morning and might induce sleep. After having my tank full, I started roaming in that area, enjoying the peace of a traffic free ride,

Suddenly, on the corner I saw a girl who was as young and beautiful as the clothes she was wearing. Must have been returning from a party. Out of courtesy, I turned my car towards her and asked if I may be of any help. She asked me if I could drop her to her home, she’ll be very obliged, to which I agreed.

She sat in the front seat with me. We started talking, and to my amazement she was very intelligent, had control on many topics which many youngsters don’t.

When we reached her address, she admitted my courteous nature and behavior and accepted that she had fallen in love with me.

I also admitted her intelligence and beauty and that I’ve also started liking her. I told her about my job as a professor in the university.

The girl asked my number, which I gave her willingly. Then she asked me a favor, to which i couldn’t have denied naturally.

She said that her brother is a student in the same university, and asked me to take care of him, since we’ll be in a long relationship now.

I asked the name of the student. She said that I’ll recognize him with one of his very prominent quality, he whistles a lot!​

All eyes in the classroom turned towards the boy who had whistled.

The professor said: “I didn’t buy my Ph. D in Psychology….. I earned it”

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination. The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change. Continuous effort not strength or intelligence is the key to unlocking our potential.
