I just wanna ask your opinions about this..
What do you think is the true intelligence?
Is it if you can memorize every formula on chemistry or physics or what ?

**Lock this if this is a dup. tnx!

'No... that is not true intelligence!'

True Intelligence is questioning everything, seeking out the evidence, than coming up with your Ideals using a mountain of evidence and facts.
True Intelligence is not accepting anything without testing it out and finding the facts for it.
True Intelligence is not accepting anything on Blind ignorance or also known as Faith. (its about seeking out the truth.)

'And yes this works with everything!'


Or is this more of Wisdom and Logic I am explaining?

@ Darkphoenix3450 - yeah, you're describing wisdom and logic.

Intelligence in and of itself is worthless. It's simply the ability to comprehend and retain given knowledge. Intelligence does not question or test. It simply knows what it is given to know. And the worth of that knowledge is subjective.

Well that isn't as worthless as you think. There are varying degrees of how well one can comprehend and retain knowledge much like how there are varying degrees of logic and wisdom. Without that part of intelligence, the latter two are rendered useless due to not having recieved information. Not only are there different levels of the three but there are different focuses as well, like some are better at using deductive logic and other inductive logic. In fact I believe all three of them make up what people consider intelligence overall.

I didn't say intelligence was worthless, I said that intelligence alone is worthless. Without logic to infer and guide reasoning or wisdom to utilize the knowledge you've accumulated intelligence can't help you.

It's basically exactly as you said. Intelligence is knowing a chemistry formula and being able to remember it. Logic will help you input the right numbers into the formula. Wisdom will help you use that formula when you need to.

true intelligence is the balance of two types of intelligence:

number one: the arithmetic intelligence (maths, arts, science in general, thirst for learning)
number two: the moral, and the level of maturity of each person

everybody have both but one more developed than the other.

some people have more developed the number one, some others only have developed the number two, some others have small and balance portions of two ( i think that´s the one that mostly ppl have)

i trully believe the true intelligence doesn´t exist.

true intelligence.
take an IQ test.

Intelligence is like how we define love. we have connotative and denotative meanings for it. Since, it is not a physical material, it is really hard to define. Many experts, who studied "intelligence," formulated their own meanings for it. Simply put, however, intelligence is the ability to learn about, learn from, understand, and interact with one’s environment.

Intelligence is a person's capacity to (1) acquire knowledge (i.e. learn and understand), (2) apply knowledge (solve problems), and (3) engage in abstract reasoning. It is the power of one's intellect, and as such is clearly a very important aspect of one's overall well-being.

Being able to cast Fireball, but I'm only at Int: 20. I only have 5 Wisdom too, so I'm fucked. I'm saving gold to buy that ring that gives me +3 Int.

intelligence is our capacity to analyze something and to find out how something happen thoroughly (IMO)

No sense im me blabbing about nonsense so i decided to give an educated answer. Intelligence is an umbrella term used to describe a property of the mind that encompasses many related abilities, such as the capacities to reason, to plan, to solve problems, to think abstractly, to comprehend ideas, to use language, and to learn. There are several ways to define intelligence. In some cases, intelligence may include traits such as creativity, personality, character, knowledge, or wisdom.
