I think intelligence can only be measured in the number of threads you make.

I came her to post something very similar to that, but definitely not as clever.

I tend to believe intelligence is mix of both. For instance, a dude can learn a ton of chemistry. However, if the dude doesn't know how to use it in a lab setting, then he just wasted hours and days learning something that he never learned how to apply.* So, he must have the memory skills to learn and the wisdom to apply.

*I know it's a very simplistic example, but the basic concept is presented.

Btw, I chose memory on the poll. There's no both option...

Memory because I've never met a really wise person who didn't have a substantial body of knowledge or experience from which to draw.

i don't think intelligence can REALLY be messured.everyone excels at certain things and ways of thinking.is the human who possesses more "common knowledge" smarter than the human who excels at something that allows him to live a very comfotable life?
#13
I wish I could be "street smart", but that seems like something that you just have to be born like. Being book smart, in my opinion, is useless because anybody can be book smart as long as you know how to read, and memorising things doesn't actually do shit.

/generic, self-absorbed slipknot5678 complaining.

That being said, I'm a pussy so I think both are important, but wisdom is something much better to have.

I did, technically. But honestly, as my above post said, I think it is both. What good is memory, if you never use what you remember? And how you use something if you lack the wisdom to use it properly? Conversely, what good is wisdom, if you're always forgetting things. Without a healthy does of both qualities, I tend to believe you end with the absent-minded professor "syndrome". (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absent-minded_professor)

Well, unless you're being a narcissist, I really don't get that option.

Edit: I'm sure you're making an actual point; it just isn't obvious to me. It's late. I'm tired. You might have to actually say what you mean.

How do you interpret it? With a western view, where it is mostly associated with memory, or an eastern view, where it is mostly associated with wisdom.

Wisdom: Experience
Knowledge: Book-smarts
Intelligence: Memory/ability to learn

I would say cognitive ability. The ability to solve problems, think things through, etc I don't know which choice that would be.

I agree with this.

Personally I think of the term intelligence being best represented as a theory-cluster term. It takes on various different, and equally valid, meanings depending on the situation it's in (the intelligence of a Stanford-Binet test is quite something else from the intelligence of common sense psychology).

I think trying to come up with one appropriate definition for intelligence is pretty futile at least whilst cognitive psychology is at the relatively early stage it is today.

Intelligence is being able to recognize when you're being an idiot.

Sort of related -- I think the term 'street-smart' is ridiculous. It's only ever used by dumb people to feign intelligence or marginalize actual intelligence. It's hard to explain, but generally 'book-smart' is actually being smart, whereas 'street-smart' is "common sense". And evidence points to common sense not actually existing.

The capacity to learn. Seems simple enough to me.

Intelligence is an interesting subject. We are all bundles of nerves. Our "intelligence" varies slightly... But not in any significant way. I will not lower myself to your poll, for it is rather non-germane.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

Neither. I associate it with the potential to gain wisdom or to rationalize.

Basically book smart vs street smart.


Those are very reductionist views of varying perceptions of intelligence in different cultures. I.e. pretty unsound.

This depends very much on what people intend by 'street smarts' but it could easily refer to either social or emotional intelligence. Both serious challenges to the idea of a single, generalised intelligence.

from the kids i went to school with at my first high school, it was based on grades and whether or not you looked and acted like them. thus, i was considered a moron.

since then, a lot of them have been arrested for doing seemingly stupid things, or managed to graduate so they could hang outside of WaWa with their pickup trucks while they listen to tobey keith and drink amp
