Sample Answer for IELTS Speaking Part 2 Topic: Describe an intelligent person you know
(Who is the person?) Everyone is born with intelligence, but only a few of them choose to use it. Out of all the intelligent persons I admire, the first place goes to my father. (What does he/she do?) My father is an Entrepreneur, and he has vast knowledge in his field. At a very young age, he set up his start-up and worked really hard. Though it took some years to build his company, he stood on his feet and proved his capabilities. (Why did you consider him an intelligent person?) In my opinion, he’s an intelligent person because he knows well about his profession, has excelled in his life, and has become a role model for other people. Whenever I feel low, he motivates me and boosts my self-confidence. He always remains up-to-date with current affairs. Recently, he was also awarded the title ‘Top 500 Entrepreneur.’ (How do you feel about him?) I am proud to be his daughter because he has vast general knowledge and is a great human being. I will try my best to follow his principles and make him proud one day.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Questions (Discussion)
Are most intelligent people happy? Why?
Not necessarily. Intelligent people have high hopes and expectations, and if they don’t fulfill those expectations, they may feel unhappy. But intelligent people also know that happiness is a state of mind, and so they may try their best to be consciously happy at all times.
Do you think intelligent people are selfish?
According to me, not all intelligent people are selfish because selfishness and intelligence are unrelated. It varies based on the individual too. An intelligent person who is successful may seem selfish because he looks after his interests and tries to achieve them. But a person cannot be branded “selfish” just because he concentrates more on his success.
Do you think intelligent people are helpful?
Well, helping tendency has nothing to do with intelligence. Character differs, and it does not depend on intelligence. I have seen intelligent people being selfish while I have also seen illiterate and dumb people being extremely helpful in certain situations. So, it mainly depends upon the person and their values.
