Is there a link between instinct and intelligence?

My son is always winning in spelling bee's and geography bee's in his school. The crazy thing is that he says that he doesn't really know the answers. Sometimes he knows the answer, sometimes he puts two and two together (especially in geography) but other times he says it is just instinct. Is it just luck or is there a link between instinct and intelligence?

  • Some kids are just naturally smart. He probably abbsorbs & stores more information that he realizes. That's great tho! Keep encouraging his academic successes. :)
