Also about learning+64As a former language teacher, I submit that in order to insure a better foreign and second language learning. it is more fruitfull and rewarding to have an intrinsic motivation (love of foreign language, its sounds, its musicality,its rythm or its syntax, i,e, learning the language for its affective and intellectual value) than to have an instrumental motivation (learn a language to get a degree , a promotion or for multiple purposes external to the language itself, as a means for an extenal goal). Do you think that affectivity does play a major role in foreign or second language learning? amirite?
Also about intelligence+199Athletes often get stereotyped as having good bodies but low intelligence, but I actually think they don't get enough credit for their intelligence. If you put an average person's brain in Michael Jordan's body, he wouldn't suddenly be able to play basketball like a star. All good athletes have mental intelligence and stamina along with high fitness, amirite?

Also about intelligence+275Knowing a great deal is not the same as being smart; intelligence is not information alone but also judgment, the manner in which information is collected and used. You really cannot gain intelligence, you can gain knowledge but it's not the same. amirite?
