So a question that has recently been on my mind is: are smart people born smart? Looking up this question in hope of finding an answer, has instead, drowned me in opinions of what people think is correct. According to articles, either a person is born smart or made themselves smart. Here’s my take, neuroscience: nature vs nurture.

Nature: It is widely accepted that intelligence comes from parents, that genes greatly contribute to why their child is so smart. Some say that smarter children have more learning potential and learn more quickly than other students.

Nurture: People also believe that to be smart you have to earn it. Some say that when we are born, we are blank slates and that we have to nurture our brain with knowledge to become smart.

In my opinion, it may be both. There is no way to test how smart a newborn is, so to say that a person is born smart is complete nonsense to me. A newborn is not born with the ability to read or write. Although, I think genes give a child the ability to learn quickly, but a child still has to nurture his/ her brain. Lots of things can contribute to being smart like effort and determination. A smart person can refuse to learn which would just make them less knowledgeable than someone who tries.
