The Definition of Intelligence

The Definition of Intelligence

The dictionary has intelligence defined as:

1. capacity for learning, reasoning, understanding, and similar forms of mental activity; aptitude in grasping truths, relationships, facts, meanings, etc.

That definition is wrong. Why? Because it is not a capacity to learn. Why do I say that? The actual brain absorbs everything that goes on around it. There is no limitation for the brain to absorb something. If we had a machine that would replay what the brain has absorbed in a day, we'd get EVERYTHING the person has seen, felt, heard and smelled all day. So sitting in class, every student learns what is being taught.

So what is intelligence? Intelligence is the ability to put nearly everything absorbed in the brain and bring it to the forefront at a second's notice. What's 2 +2? The intelligent person can bring that up immediately. And, to the brain 2+2 is no more difficult a questioin than, "What was ratified at the treaty of Versaille?"

But, there's a new book out that goes even further to explain intelligence. It turns most concepts of what intelligence is, on its ear. Briefly it goes into the fact that intelligence is nothing more than chemicals in the brain. Also, that intelligence is nothing more than dog training, at a human level. Mozart learned whole concertos by the age of 6. Why? Because his father beat it into him. Dog training.

So, you want your kid to be "more intelligent"? or you yourself to be more intelligent, go get the worlds 100 most admired scholarly books and beat the information into you or your kid. It really is that simple.

Here's the real problem. People mischaracterize intelligence as being "smart". Smart is another word for wisdom. Nowhere has it ever been shown that an intelligent person is wise. There are plenty of nerds that would walk into a dark alley and get themselves murdered. There are plenty of nerds that would constantly inadvertently insult their girlfriends / wives and end up broken up / divorced.

Intelligence does not equal smart. Smart equals wisdom. But, hey, if you want to be intelligent, the road to it, is pretty damn simple.

I am not going to go into depth here, but the original idea to categorize IQ, intelligence quotient, was not born out of an objective wish to know, but it was another form to show that Black people were inferior to white people. When the world got smarter, people went back to look at the concept of intelligence and IQ and found that all the conclusions about race and intelligence were completely off base and patently false. Black students are no less intelligent than European or Asian students. In fact, the instance of "smart" students, or wise students are found in slightly higher quantities in Black students than the other 2 races.

It was later found that, given that the teacher knew the technique, he could "teach" any student. In fact, no racial group was found to learn at any differing speed, once the teacher was corrected.
