Default What Determines Intelligence?

In your mind, what determines how intelligent someone is? How do you think one is to become intelligent or maintain their intelligence?

Just list the characteristics you think go with intelligence.

- Global knowledge (Knowledge about foreign countries, foreign economics and ways of life, foreign politics, etc. etc.)

- Mathematics (Any level above Algebra I or Geometry. I find those to be the actual base of everything.)

- Grammar and spelling (Self-explanatory?)

Notice nothing on Politics. I don't think that it is necessary for someone to know a lot about politics. Obviously, like I said earlier, a global knowledge of politics would be nice.

I really want to see NG and Erik post.

A broad mixture of all of the above elements paired with the ability to comprehend what you're reading and writing. Grammar is likely the most often false-positive. It doesn't take much effort to spell correctly.

I believe intelligence is defined by a mixture of being able to comprehend and the ability to relate things.

Intelligence is just as relative as anything else.

Agreed. Intelligence is always related to school, grades, subjects.

It really isn't at all but is really all about comprehension, being able to analyze, develop, and find solutions.

Their process of solving a problem, they have the ability to know what they're saying, being able to explain themselves, know their surroundings, and the ability to understand something.

I, honestly, don't think school work affects too much to someone's knowledge being most of it is responsibility rather than applying their knowledge.

I really believe school has nothing to do with it. Just a way of society using scare-tactics to get a result, as well as a loss in intelligence and basic understanding on their part.

It bothers me alot when people bring up irrelevant things pertaining to intelligence and then go on about how THAT is why they are intelligent...just urks me

It comes in to factions:

1. Potential intelligence
2. Realized intelligence.

Potential is the range that your biology can take you and realized is where you take that potential through education and experience.

I define intelligence as being able to learn things from the world around you, comprehend and learn from stuff you read, and being able to apply everything you've learned to your daily life to overcome problems.
