    In your opinion, how big of a factor is 'choice' when it comes to someone's level of intelligence? Can one choose their scope of intelligence, or is that something that is more innate?

    I suppose a person can chose not to use their brains but if they don't have any to start with there isn't much of a choice. "You live and learn or you don't live long."

    Intelligence is innate, education and using that intelligence is a choice.

    Prob. more the latter...but learning is a choice and everybody can do it. The more you learn, or willing to learn, the more intelligent you become.
