Are You Book Smart Or Street Smart?

Are you book smart or street smart? The answer to that question says much about who you are and what you want out of life. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly where the two kinds of smart differ. Naturally, a street smart person’s knowledge comes from experience whereas a book smart person’s knowledge comes from reading or otherwise researching a topic. Being book smart can be described as “exam smart” or “academically smart”, whereas being street smart means having good environmental or situational awareness, and the understanding of what’s going on around you.

The difference between streetwise and book smart goes deeper than just intelligence or knowledge, however. The kind of smarts you possess say much about what you value the most in life. It’s also not quite that straightforward to spot a book smart or street smart person as you might imagine.

To find out if you are book smart or street smart, take this quiz and we will let you know which kind of smart you really are.
