    Question Could any native speaker of English please edit my passage?

    An intelligent person can be considered the one, who is educated.

    Would you please look at the introduction below?

    Introduction:

    Many believe that educated people are intelligent; whereas, someone who has not studied yet, is not intelligent. To prove and to disprove this idea we need to study the lives of people around us; both educated and uneducated people.

    Many native speakers have the ability, the question is if they are willing. I believe that you are confused between intelligence and knowledge. People are born with intelligence - they acquire knowledge through study and instruction.
    Hi,
    Thank you for your guidance.

    Yes, but this is a title of TOEFL test in the area of writing skills. Of course, an Intelligence is general and an aptitude is specific.

    Best to you
