    Raised and born.... You can raise a clever child by letting them read from a young age, teaching them the alphabet and to count when they are really really young like 2 or 3 years old maybe even 1? And for witty and outgoing it really just depends they can be born that way because each child is born unique, but i think a child can be raised to be witty and funny depending on the relationship you have with them, the shows they watch on tv and of course their friends.

    `Wit`, in in truth I believe, a safe amusing, cathartic,

    `cocking-a-snoot`, kindly or otherwise, at matters ~ the status quo, etc.,

    and that is often the socially-acceptable expression

    of disappointments & pain.

    Think of the brilliant Dorothy Parker, Oscar Wilde.

    Intelligence may (MAY) have a certain genetic predisposition, but upbringing is almost the exclusive cause for cleverness.

    There's reason to think they're born. But environment has its effect, too.

    Probably more ENVIRONMENT. Parents can't take credit for everything! It's our environment (EVERYTHING around us) that impacts who we are--both in and out of our households.
