    no amount of study can make a person intelligent or wise.
    it only increases his knowledge
    don't expect scholars to run a country well.

    Smart is me, work for PAP. Clever is PAP, give a drumstick take back whole chicken. Not smart not clever people, is what makes this all work.

    Smart indicates acquired knowledge ie we use the terms "street smart" and "book smart", so smart has more to do with experience...

    Clever is something you were born with, like the ability to solve problems fast.

    So clever is natural talent while smart is taught/learned.

    Kong Hee, Ng Boon Gay, Professor Tey Tsun Hang are all intelligent people but not smart enough when it comes to cheating.

    LKY and son are the experts.

    In my opinion.

    A clever person may not be smart.
    Example such as those who can flair in academy.

    A smart person may not be clever.
    Example such as those who make it as politicians

    Those who are both clever and smart is rare.
    Example such as those who can start up a business from scratch

    dun be stoopid to fall for such compliment, always remember that even if you think that you are smart, there is always a higher mountain. stay humble always...

    In some shameless third world countries, doing evil is called being smart. No wonder all the smart asses there still end up poor third world countries. Now I know why they are poor. These smart people only have smart ideas to harm others and so damn proud of it. They have no clever ideas that can bring improvement to themselves and others.

    Only some of the 70% are smart. The others are impressionable and easily manipulated.

    Didn't i say doing evil is called smart in some shameless third world countries? Here's one third world import - shameless number two - who just proved what I said by calling the victim smart alec aka stupid and clever fool. Doing evil behind while appearing kind in front is called smart. Being kind and doing things in front aboveboard is called stupid and fool. These people have very low morals, trust them at your own peril.
