Summary-response #1: “What Is Intelligence, Anyway?”
“what Is Intelligence, Anyway?” is an article that was written by Isaac Asimov. Isaac Asimov is a Russian who grew up in America. With being well educated, he received his Ph.D. in chemistry from Columbia University. He is known as the writer for all types of readers from specialized to nonspecialized.

According to the article, he is a prideful man; he always think he is highly intelligent, and he expect other people to think so, too. Not only that, he also puts himself on the same level with the people who make up the intelligence tests.

Dr. Asimov told the readers about his auto repairman, who he always brings his car to when it has any problem, that his auto repairman would never pass the score of 80 on these intelligence test if he takes it. However, the car is always fixed every time Dr. Asimov brings to the auto repairman. In the middle of the article, Dr. Asimov said that he is an intelligent man wherever he could use his academic training and his verbal talents, but when it comes to do something intricate or hard, working with his hands then he would be a “moron.”
One thing that I like the most about Dr. Asimov is that he is not embarrass to tell people how he got tricked by an auto repairman who can not even pass the score of 80 in the intelligence test. The joke that the auto repairman told Dr. Asimov was that...
