    Default Education vs Intellect

    It seems a lot of people have a deluded sense of what education is, and what intellect/intelligence truly is. So let's see how many of you can actually decipher the two, Because this world was built on one of the two, and it sure as hell wasn't education.

    Maybe if you phrase your question in a more inviting manner ...

    Try actually presenting some content for discussion.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    The teaching and passing down of things vs the way in which a person uses the things they *know*.

    ITS ALL ABOUT DA FINGS!!!



    *What someone knows does not necessarily have to come from education.

    I assume you meant to reply to me rather than yourself? The whole reason I used the word thing to define what it is you know is to cover the enormity of what intelligence can be applied to, the way in which someone uses what he or she is given can be a defining value of what intelligence is.

    But this is a completely subjective topic, your own personal idea of intelligence may not be the same as mine or even another person's. I suppose I might tentatively describe intelligence as the ability or quality of being able to do something different or inventive in a positive manner....but this could easily be incorrect based upon anothers view of intelligence.

    For some people wisdom IS intelligence. For others it is innovation and so on into infinity. Perhaps it is merely what people agree on as being evidence of quality in thought?

    As for education I did notice when younger that there were two types of tests: Those that tried to measure a capacity for retention of knowledge and those that tried to measure a capacity for application of knowledge.
