    You know, I was only referring to the multiple intelligences perspective: Theory of multiple intelligences - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia It's an intelligence theory, and I only sought to discuss the intelligence of Ns versus Ss in that framework. I am not really saying anything about what my personal thoughts on what the definition of intelligence should be.

    IQ tests favor intuitives by design because they're largely about pattern recall.

    do you understand how someone who doesnt favor intuition might actually be more adaptable and intelligent in the sense that they are processing new, accurate information instead of simply relating the current information to a past pattern?

I think that points to something more than the use of N functions that leads to the differences in IQ test scores.
    perhaps the above explains this variance...

    This is getting kind of annoying. Everything is all about how flawed IQ is all the time. I am not discussing that. I am simply saying that within the IQ framework, Ns are more intelligent than Ss. Some like that framework, you obviously don't. Then I also showed Ns are more intelligent than Ss within the multiple intelligences framework. And these two frameworks are the most popular to think within. You have your own theory it seems, but at least I have shown that Ns are more intelligent than Ss in standard intelligence perspectives.

    Intelligence is a heavily contextual concept. IQ tests relative skill within a peer group on skills that are needed to be successful in a certain environment. We tend to take certain premises about intelligence as givens, but many of these are tied into Western European culture and values. For example, defining those cognitive traits in which human differ from animals as being "intelligence" reveals a bias that places man against nature. There are plenty of assumptions to examine. In order to really understand intelligence, it requires being able to view it from outside these contexts and make comparisons. Intelligence is fluid, diverse, and contextually defined. Perhaps there should be a thread started to specifically explore the topic and relate it to current research and debate?

    I see what you're saying here, but I'm inclined to agree with Seanan...the aptitude that Ns or Ss have in a particular subject won't necessarily translate into being smarter all around.

    I think we have to figure interests into all this, too. People tend not to put much effort into things that they aren't interested in, which could lead others to believe that they are not capable of understanding a certain subject. In reality, they could be quite capable, but don't have the interest to put time and effort into it.

    perhaps the above explains this variance...
    The tests (not all of which are graphical) aren't particularly about "recall" but recognition. It was an effort to exclude apptitude to arrive at "pure" intelligence... again to see and apply patterns making learning exponential.

    The farmer who's never done anything but plow the field and speak in poor grammar may score highly on an IQ test because nothing is required except recognizing patterns. He's probably never done anything involved with the mentioned apptitudes. He may use his intelligence in learning to fix his wife's oven and apply it elsewhere to farm machinery never having to actually learn how to fix a particular machine. Simplistic I know but happens every day with highly intelligent people who never fit with an apptitude they're being judged by.

    agreed... this is why i think reality is the only real judge of intelligence, those who navigate it with ease have something in common.

    Oh I get it, you're teaching me about MBTI. Why did I even both researching and figuring for the last 2 years?
    S vs. N is a spectrum of favored approach, looking at a collection of new details <-> considering the implications of the summarized whole by comparing it to past pattern.
    No, sorry it's not that simple. Ne strings together all or many of the sensations that Se brings in. It might not remember each detail, but it does notice them at the start. That's because instead of only remembering the details so they can be analyzed, by feeling or thinking, it has another step. There's the connection between them, and if there are enough, then it turns into a pattern, and Ne can become aware of what might happen. It's not as if the user of Ne can't notice details, they're just not interested in laboring over them. It's got absolutely nothing to do with approach. In fact, judgement is what determines the favored approach. Usually there's a divide between thinking and feeling, but you could also draw a line between the two attitudes of either.


    ironically, it is people who want to look at MBTI letters alone and say "Ns are more intelligent than Ss" who are being simplistic here...
    ... and... you think that's what I'm doing?
    a type such as ISTP contains an Ni tertiary function that could easily be stronger than, say, an INTP's Ne secondary.
    That's not proven. It's my understanding that the four letter type code only indicates which two functions a person prefers at the front, and all the others swim in a nebula. I'm staunchly opposed to the notion of a rigid function order.
    nearly everyone uses both senses and intuition, and between any given XSXX vs XNXX, you are simply swapping the Nx and Sx functions... not removing them, and certainly not altering the quantitative effectiveness of the function.
    Well we certainly don't disagree here.

    Ineffective intuition is where we get people like Michael Scott from the office. NF symbology taken to an absurd tier makes him a true dumbass. Just like perhaps NT systematizing that tries to trump reality, with the thinking that if they can't analyze it, it must not exist.

    Perhaps the simplest thing to do would be to compare the average brain size (correlates about 0,4 with IQ) of Ns and Ss? Whichever group has the largest brain size on average is the most intelligent? It works in explaining racial IQ differences, although I must say I am somewhat sceptical of applying this approach here, but it would be fun to test.
