In your opinion, what makes a person intelligent?
I think they can be considered to be types of intelligence, but certainly are not the be all end all.I honestly consider "intelligent" to be a subjective term.
Critical thinking and reasoning is the main things I use to consider someone "intelligent". If someone can't take information and act on it they aren't "intelligent" in my eyes. You read about the Solar System, but if all you do is just spit out the information you read or just paraphrase it that doesn't show you actually know anything about the Solar System.
For the sake of it lets go over everything that SHOULD NOT be used to consider "intelligence."
Grades: It is really easy for people to just not do the work even if they are capable of doing it. Most school work nowadays is just regurgitating text book and lecture information instead of actually learning. Many practices in our school system don't benefit
I.Q.: It is only a measure of your ability to learn and process information. I really don't consider it a way to accurately "measure intelligence."
Grammar/Sentence Structure: Not everyone can convey their ideas eloquently. I have met many "intelligent" people who could barely spell. They did all their thinking and discussing through their words.
