What does it mean to be "smart"?

What does it mean to be smart? What are the common characteristics of people that are considered to be smart, intellectual, etc?

Can it be quantified in a mere Intellectual Quotient or a grade percentage? Should there be other methods to quantify it, or should it be quantified at all?

    Jul 15 2011: Does smart implied intellectual?
    People can be smart, not necessarily develop a intellectual attitude.
    Maybe it can be the capacity to question the things he or she experience in daily life circumstances, and from that questioning, develop a better way to resolve and create solutions to improve life.
    Best.
