Describe an Intelligent Person you Know- IELTS Cue Card
Describe an intelligent person you know.You should say:
- Who is he/she?
- Why do you call him/her intelligent?
- How do you know him/her?
At times, in life, you tend to get sundry living examples and a slew of exemplary personalities that inspire you and, in a way, change your life to a great extent. I had a chance once to meet a guest faculty at a college who came to deliver his lectures on a subject. However, apart from being a seasoned teacher, he was a man of virtues and one of the most intellectual human beings I ever came across.
So, after the lecture, we all gathered around to clarify our doubts on the topic he taught us in the class and decided to go to the staffroom to ask our queries. However, suddenly, we found a ruckus going on among the students of various political groups, and the student leaders were creating a vociferous environment that, if ignited, could have created huge chaos on our college campus. The next moment we saw the teacher approaching the mob and trying to pacify the agitation. However, since the situation was getting aggravated with every passing moment, the conversation could not have been effectual and hence, it did not affect controlling the turbulence. The teacher then got meddled in the commotion and said the students of another college are proceeding towards our college to pick up a fight and thus, would require all of those students to be unified. We were amazed to see all of that and how everyone who was fighting a while ago was standing in unity and planning to fight off the students of another college. When everything got placated, the teacher told them about the power of unity and that it’s silly to stay scattered and get weak and wisdom lies in standing in solidarity.
Such intelligence and presence of mind are generally not found in people we come across in day-to-day life. Moreover, the promptness with which he handled it all was awe-striking. This incident earned him a lot of respect from all of us, and though he stayed in our college for a week, the impression he had on us would stay forever.

Part 3 Questions
Are most intelligent people happy? Why?
Well, it depends upon the personalities of people. Therefore, it is a highly subjective case as some people are ebullient in nature while some are quite solemn and serious and either of them could be intelligent.
Do you think intelligent people are selfish?
Selfishness is quite irrelevant to one’s intellect and mental potential. Although intelligent people could evaluate a situation better than a less intelligent person and make a better decision for themselves, one’s intelligence is not proportional to how selfish one is.
Do you think intelligent people are helpful?
Intelligent people could put forth a better decision or opinion as compared to the ones who are somewhat less intelligent. However, how helpful one solely depends upon how gentle and munificent a person’s heart is.
Eg.: My neighbours were very ebullient and welcoming.
Eg.: She was very solemn and hence, people didn’t approach her.
Meaning: not related to something.
Eg.: The context of the topic was highly irrelevant to its intent.
Eg.: I believe they have the potential to do great things.
Eg.: They all were very gentle and munificent and hence people loved them.
