What do you consider to be intelligence?
Posted 9/16/07
A lot of people consider grades to be the defining factor of intelligence, I think it shows your interest in your subject or your ability to focus.IMO, I think real intelligence lies in creativity and having the ability to solve problems.....
What do you think?Please discuss....

In the book "On Intelligence" Hawkins defines it as "the capacity of the brain to predict the future by analogy to the past."

Beats me.

Bump.

I think a persons intelligence is their understandings of things.Act and talk too is a understanding of how to speak,which i think counts as intelligence.

i agree that intelligence isn't only about good grades. i think it's about how you present yourself, act in different situations, and also how wise you are. one reason it's not always about grades is because some people *****like me***** have evil teachers that hate you for no apparent reason and give you ridiculous grades. i did nothing to my History teacher and this one time she gave me D- on something everyone else loved. i was like, what the heck? haha who else has this problem??

IMO Humans have a very narrow definition of intelligence. we have yet to benchmark ourselves with other races from other planets. animals for example have their own method of communicating, be it through auditive or chemical methods. yet we fail to acknowledge these traits as intelligence.

We are relatively young as a race. so I'll give ourselves another 500,000 years before we can truly say humans are intelligent.

intelligence...well, what most of the thigns you learn in school will not mostly help you in the future, so i'm guessing intelligence is the knowledge of the real world, like buisness, work, how to co-operate with people, and etc.

i think a person's intelligence is based on their decisions from the past and also grades since it affects you future
Posted 9/22/07
I really don't know. I guess it would depend on what you're doing and how u react to certain things in life. I think wisdom maybe would be the right word. Anyone can be intelligent if they are studious and hard-working. In my opinion anyways.

Nah grades don't have anything to do with intelligence (Perfect example: ME!!! ). Its more about how well you understand the world around you, how much you grasp. Its also about how well you communicate. If you can't express yourself coherently, no one will know what ideas are going through your head, rendering all your knowledge useless to the rest of humanity . Still who are we to judge, since there are tons of definitions to what intelligence is ...
