The question was never "how smart are you?" it was always "how are you smart?"
sir, can you make it more simple?
Intelligence isn't about the stuff a persons know, but how they obtained it. Like a really intelligent person (at least from my perspective) is someone who can adapt rapidly to new ideas and can catch on to new concepts very quickly.
Also, there were libraries before the internet. So technically, school wasn't the only place to obtain knowledge. And if you want to get even more technical about it, lots of places provide knowledge. Like public places where people can have discussions. Simply having conversations with other people can contribute towards a person's knowledge.
it does makes sense
I for example seem to have spacial and numerical intelligence. My wife has language, literary and contemporary intelligence. For example: I can solve a differential equation and remember driving directions after glancing at a map; but I cannot recognize a Beyoncé song on the radio. My wife gets lost on her way to her mothers house but can carry on an analytically astute conversation about the cultural references in a JK Rowling's novel. It can be argued that a figure skater, ballerina, or footballer has kinesthetic intelligence that I could never even imagine having. Depending on who you talk to there are 6 to upwards of 20 "types" of intelligence.
Here is a list of 9:
Few people (if any) have them all, and few if any have none.
How are you smart?
That was pretty deep. I thought that intelligence was all about common-sense.
I disagree, only because the internet is not a portal of knowledge, but of entertainment.
There is a lot more to life than just the internet when seeking knowledge. There are still books, other educated people and hands on experience that teaches you process.
it would be wrong to say so
because intelligence has several dimensions
Medical Definition of intelligence. 1a: the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situationsb: the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment or to think abstractly as measured by objective criteria.

The Internet and how well you can navigate through it has nothing to do with intelligence.
Given the amount of misinformation and outright garbage on the Internet, it can even reduce your knowledge level if you start to believe much of what you read and see there.
