What is smartness?

Is someone smarter than me just because he or she can count ‘2 + 2 = 4’ faster than me? Or if somebody else can build something far more advanced or superior in structure, complexity and objectivity than me that basically performs a simple daily habitual function which any normal sane human being easily can? Or is it when some mind perceives the world and its various shapes and colours in a distinct way different than mine in the level of imagination or creativity?

For me, smartness is the instinct of knowing as to when things have gone beyond getting fucked up and having the anger, passion and sense of self sacrifice required at fixing them.
