IF you need a definition a dictionary is your friend :)
God bless the dictionary!!. I bloody hate describing words.
intelligence is not just one fold; intelligence can be academical, emotional, spiritual, mental, scientific, professional. you can't determine IQ by one simple factor.
Intelligence is NOT knowledge, it's how you use it.
Lex Luthor once said " Some people can read War and Peace and come away thinking it's a simple adventure story. Others can read the ingredients on a chewing gum wrapper and unlock the secrets of the universe. " :)
i agree my umm.. friend is super smart he can just do just about anything but hes also a raging alcoholic whats that they say stupid is as stupid does
I think intelligence is almost always paired with knowledge. But it depends on what type of intelligence you're talking about and it sounds like you're referring to social intelligence?
Knowledge isn't just "knowing" things and memorizing facts. It's also about skill and understanding. :)
i would say the system in which education is implemented must change from " money mode " to " wisdom mode" ..it's that simple...once you know you have a need or purpose to acquire knowledge is more than a mere desire..that's when you walk forward to intelligence..
Don't confuse a good memory with intelligence,,lots of people do.
Intelligence is the except form of brainwashing for the time period.
10 Myths About Intelligence...http://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/curiosity/topics/myths-about-intelligence.htm
What planet do you live on.
It has nothing to do with facts...and logic alone doesn't cut it.....computers have lots of each and are not intelligent. Intelligence is the ability to understand things. To look at things and form your own judgements on them. To be able to figure out why. To be interested in asking why. To be creative.
I also agree about the importance of taking on different perspectives. Perspective is a major part of intelligence, but it is hardly brought up when someone talks about intelligence.
i don't know,, its always eluded me
That would be described as merely taking an interest in certain subjects. it's not because you don't know about 1 thing a lot or a lot of things a little bit, that you are intelligent. I'm guessing that would rather be having a good memory lol.
But I think the ability to apply it and demonstrate an understand of that area, is important too. Rather then just remembering it, for the sake of passing an exam.
Yes indeed, which is why I don't consider having a good memory always indicates a persons' intelligence =D
If I had to describe intelligence, I'd say it's the ability to apply a theory to solve problems =) Whether those are difficult calculations or simply things you need to obtain to get by , ... doesn't really matter. It requires a certain insight that not everyone has as much. What do you think?
Sounds good to me!. Its a bloody tricky question. I'm awful at describing words. Some bastard on here had a hue and cry, because I used a dictionary definition to describe something.
Awh I'm sure you're better than you think ;p
Hahah a dictionary definition? Charming =p
