Intellectual Vs Being Intellectual Analysis

The reason I think they value this more is because people today want to be able to do stuff like be able to play sports or be able do something without thinking. Most people don't want to be intellectual. There are some people today that want to be intellectual and be able to learn new things and being able to criticize and create new things.

Most of the people that want to be intellectual are intellectual because they know how to do these things instead of not thinking and going for it. But lots of people don't want to be that but want to be able to do stuff well like play sports or run fast. Most people turn out to be runners. racers, jumpers, and swimmers. Of course those people are ones that want to know how to do stuff.

Also most kids are becoming the people who want to know how to do something which in my mind is making them dumber or not as smart as they could be.

Finally in my opinion today's society is wanting to be more of a knowing how to do something than a intellectual person. More people are wanting to become jumpers, racers, and fliers than examiners, critics, know-ers, and creators. An in today's society we suffer for this in many ways such as not knowing how to be as smart as we can be or not knowing what to
