Intelligence, a Relative Trait

Updated on May 19, 2013

What Intellect


Intelligence is quite the relative trait,

and often is a common inherited fate,

Depending upon just who is so asked,

Then perhaps wearing, a clever mask.


Dependent upon species, not of gender,

Often a falsehood, so it may surrender.

Never given, a certain factual account,

Nor the actual challenge, was to mount.


Intelligence, I suspect, to each his own,

How much knowledge, or how was grown.

Who would suspect one's scholarly torch,

Inferior, to a hound's rest, upon its porch?




I was inspired to write this by a recent question asked.

      There are now presumed to be about 9 different intelligences, according to the experts on education, so it is pretty certain we all have strengths in some of them! Nice poem!
