A person is smart, though I don’t mean this in a report card/IQ test sort of way. Those kinds of measurements are mostly irrelevant in the real world.
When I come across adults who reference the glory days of high school grades and offer to share their standardized test results, I cringe.
But what have you done lately?
Generally speaking, however, a person is smart. A person gets it done. A person thinks. A person cares about themselves, other people, and their environment.
A person listens.
A person is brave.
People, on the other hand, are a problem. People are not those things.
I’m not sure what to do about people.
