    Then again Logic is a philosophy, Thinking AND Feeling the instruments to implement it

    Right... so instead, steal a word! Talk about intelligent acumen!

    And besides, dictionary.com definitions mention "logic" only once, so everything I just mentioned is pretty much a moot point.
    For what word? Intelligence or rationality? Let's not merge my clearly separate agendas.
    Talk about multiple intelligences is not 'euphemistic'; it's a perfectly appropriate use of a word.
    This coming from one of them.

    And I can think of ways that each one of the 8 psychological types could become intellectuals through thier dominant function. And each of the types could be just as much of an intellectual.
    Sure. It's possible. I don't disagree. Are you reading my post? I didn't say N > S, I said that it's worth considering that perhaps if you were born smart, you're more naturally inclined to develop intuitive tendencies. Intuition, being the result of, NOT CAUSE.

    The problem is that 'intelligence' is a nice word and everyone else wants a piece of the pie.

    There's a difference between 'intelligence' and 'talent'.

    We could also discuss the difference between 'intelligence' and 'wisdom'.

    Yes. They're quite different, too.

    But when we already have words in the language that can describe someone's innate sense towards a specialty, why don't we use them instead of having to label everything 'intelligence'?

    I personally like 'aptitude'. Makes more sense to me.

    This line deserves its own response.

    You might not care, but that's only because you lack understanding in the reasoning behind language. Definition is rigid for a reason. Look up definition.

    If you don't already understand the reason we have set meanings there's probably no hope for you.
    And I'd rather watch you squirm around in these arguments anyway, so I'm not going to offer to help you.

    So, pretending you have knowledge I'm certain you don't, I impose the following:

    The definition is not changed.
    The people who tried to change it failed. They suffered humiliating defeat.
    Using that word in that way is either euphemism, or misnomer, depending on what's being sanctioned.

    It's not just one word we'd have to reconstruct.
    It's an entire verse of words.
