What is your definition of an intelligent person

If you are willing to debate about education systems and so on then you are willing to explain what you think a smart person is. Is your definition of a smart person someone who is street smart, Logically smart or someone who can read a 200 page book in a few hours?

please I would love to hear everyone's ideas
(I want to know what the social standard is for intelligence or at least the individual standards of people)
