    Hmmm I take a very practical approach to intelligence.

    1. How readily do they understand things regardless of the subject
    2. Problem solving skills.

    intelligence is the catalyst by which available resources are applied for effect

    the greater the intelligence, the more one is able to capitalize on, for instance, the time and knowledge available to them to their desired ends, even if they are not practical

    intelligence isnt synonymous with creativity, though, there are possibilities of refinement within the scope of what we already know, all of which can benefit the person who conceptualized it and possibly even the rest of our world

    Thanks, guys. Some very insightful answers here. I appreciate the thought you put into this.

    Except for FDG and that other guy, whose username is too complicated for me to apply myself to typing. But there's one or two on every forum. n_n (not to demean the subtle humor in their responses, but rather because I was a rabid feminist almost from the time I popped out, and I remain an ass on that subject).

    As for IQ tests, I also somewhat doubt their validity.... of course, I don't relly know much about them, so that's pretty much unfounded other than my own personal experience.
    Wait, what did you say again?

    Intelligence is a bunch of mental attributes combined into one (creativity, ability to learn and adapt, memory, etc.).

    7 Intelligences: What Does it Mean to be Smart? :Cathcart Institute

    All of your answers are right, but not wholistic, intelligence is the generalization of the different kinds of intellegences we possess. And having big boobs might fall under physical intelligence, there's even a boob workout machine. Most daily activities requires the use of multiple intelligences simultaneously though and they also added an 8th one in theory which is nature intelligence.

    There is no common agreement on what traits define intelligence. Wikipedia's definition.

    Intelligence is an umbrella term used to describe a property of the mind that encompasses many related abilities, such as the capacities to reason, to plan, to solve problems, to think abstractly, to comprehend ideas, to use language, and to learn. There are several ways to define intelligence. In some cases, intelligence may include traits such as creativity, personality, character, knowledge, or wisdom. However there is no agreement on which traits define the phenomenon of intelligence agreed upon by a majority across the various concerned disciplines.

    That's very cool. Thanks for the link~

    Also, I was asking not the working definition of intelligence but how users gauge intellect during social interaction. Maybe I should have just said that upfront to avoid confusion...
