On the question of intelligence [Dec. 5th, 2004|01:14 pm]

One of the problems I have when thinking about people is the question of intelligence. Specifically, I value intelligence conceptually, but I'm not quite sure what that means. I'd also be curious to know what other people think it is? So, what is intelligence, and how does it manifest in people?

I think what I generally associate with intelligence is common sense. Being able to put two and two together in any situation to realize what's going on.

Intelligence = maturity. Read up on Kohlberg and Gilligan and their hierarchies of morals, and don't believe anything I say.
