Does Reading makes us smarter ?

Modern societies have many opportunities to read varieties of books, which show to make people smarter. Today, many people can and have improved the way of thinking by just reading.

By saying reading, not only books are mentioned, but also newspapers, articles and magazines are included too. However, reading is a cognitive process of understanding a written linguistic message. Reading makes us smarter by improving analytic thinking and increasing vocabulary throughout your life.

Reading improves the way a person thinks. It improves your intellectual thinking. Intellectual thinking is a vital component of visual thinking that gives a person the ability to solve problems quickly and effectively. For example, when you read, you improve your general knowledge of the subject and things in particular, and more importantly you are able to spot patterns quicker.

If you can spot patterns quicker, your analytic or intellectual skills receive a boost. Intellectual thinking makes you smarter because it gives a new way to see problems.

Reading increases vocabulary. It’s no secret that reading increases your vocabulary and improves your spelling. But did you know that reading increases your vocabulary directly without being taught too? Reading forces us to look at words that we might not have seen or heard recently.

Every day, you’ll be surprised at the words you start incorporating into your mind, conversations and writings. Even when you get old, even when you have read lots of books, you’ll be impressed to see that you will always learn new words at the end of the day. Of course, this won’t happen if you don’t read.


Of no doubt, reading improves a person’s intelligence. It may take your time, but it improves your life by making you smarter. People, especially children may sometimes need to be pushed a little to read but in the end they will not be disappointed. If your definition of “smartness” is having a larger vocabulary and more knowledge and reasoning skills included within the concept of intelligence, then reading may make people smarter.

However, Charles William Eliot wrote “Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”
