Let's keep it at the level of human intelligence for now...

Intelligence is the sum total of your experiences that can easily be consciously accessed... ie- not forgotten.

Then there is a step higher... Creativity.... Creativity makes things happen intelligently... ie- in a manner that can be understood. ( If one dosen't understand... it simply means that they lack the experience )

What next? THere must be some kind of link....

Creativity, is governed by Imagination.

Imagination is the link.

Here's my stab:

Intelligence is purposely predicting, understanding, and altering the environment in order to achieve benefit.

intelligence is an ability to understand ones environment from multiple viewpoints in a way that does not favor any of these distinct viewpoints, but rather, takes the best qualities from all these viewpoints and integrates them into a new viewpoint.

Good one. The new viewpoint must be beneficial; this evidentially follows as a result of the process of taking the best qualities of previous viewpoints.

We live in a world where we constantly try to prove ourselves to others that in the process it becomes our life.

Let it slide...

I think your expieriences are your knowledge, inteligence is how you use your knowledge. Knowledge= tools, Inteligence= handyman. Thus a man with little expierience can still be inteligent. Although you can't build a boat with just a hammer. I also agree with all the other opinions on this thread.

Intelligence is rated upon the ability to love and have compassion, as well as the ability to reason.

intelligence:

pattern recognition, spatialization, memory, math, lateral thinking (some creativity in there), deductive logic, abstraction, reading comprehension, logically structured hierarchy of stored knowledge.

1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21....

knowing what comes next is not intelligence unless you've never seen this before. That is why all IQ tests are somewhat inaccurate, they rely on testing what you know, instead of your ability to learn.

intelligence is subject to interpatation, but I'll give it a stab.

intelligence is the ability to use your accumulated memories of your past thoughts and experiences to stay alive and achieve balance within your envronment while constantly enhancing your abilities to do so.


--------------------
What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

Aptitude is a synonym of intellegence in my opinion...the ability to properly analyze and interpret data. This can apply toward any kind of data received by your brain. To take it a level further it is the ability to accurately communicate as well.

I forget where this comes from but I've read that intelligence is the ability to use what you already know to solve applications that you have no idea about.

Correction, that is the "highest order of thinking," which could be interpreted as "intelligence."

That is analogous to what you were saying, infidelGOD.

Nice to see nobody writing rambling posts, I like the speedyness.


Intelligence is creativity. A creative person breaks from habit. Habit's problem is that it makes people impose their will and experience on new things they experience ie: the mechanic says "The body is a just a complex machine." No, it's a BODY! The non-creative thinker doesn't take things for what they are, which impedes learning. The samurai learning to cut grass makes a comparison between war and grass cutting and deploys the cutting crew in battle formation which is less efficient than the normal grass-cutting formation. Likewise, the grass cutter struggling with learning to fight dies in battle because to understand swordplay he draws on his experience cutting grass instead of accepting swordfighting for what it is and swings too weakly. Or something.
