Intelligence and thinking ability

Many highly intelligent people are poor thinkers. Many people of average intelligence are skilled thinkers. The power of the car is separate from the way the car is driven.
- Edward De Bono, consultant, writer, and speaker (1933- )

It's is also true that many people of average intelligence are stupid and many highly intelligent people are anti-social.

What is the difference between someone who can think and someone who cannot? A desire to learn and a will to think (practice), plus the courage to risk thinking thoughts that others have not.
