Intelligence is an essay by Isaac Asimov. He explains that his intelligence is not absolute but is afunction of the society  he lives in. In other words, just because youre educated doesnt mean youknow everything. He was very smart: for instance, Asimov scored 160 on an Army test compared to thenorm of 100. However, he wasnt smart compared to the intelligence of his mechanic in terms of knowing how to fix cars. The mechanic is street-smart, whereas Asimov is book smart. A
