Analyses showed that die ''intelligent student'' was a multicomponential concept including both thinking and expressive abilities. Furthermore, the definition of an intelligent student varied as a function of the undergraduates' academic major: more precisely, students tend to overvaluate die specific abilities linked to their own major.
