Last week I updated my status comment on Facebook. It was about smart vs. clever.
The status read: It's nice to be called "smart" but for some reason I really like it when I'm called "clever."
Some people may not see a difference between the two adjectives, but there is...at least for me.
Smart is intelligence, IQ matter. Seemingly black and white.
Clever goes a lot further, I believe. It adapts itself to creativity, problem solving, finding solutions. It deals more with gray matter, reading between the lines, sudden spurts of brilliance that are emitted.
One of my friends commented about my Facebook status. He said, "How 'bout beautiful and sexy?"
Believe it or not, I still think that "clever" can go a lot further than "beautiful and sexy."
But if you wish, you can call me, "beautiful, sexy, AND clever"!
