    True intelligence is the knowledge to do what is right...

    There's no such thing as true intelligence, that would be a farfetched term.

    In neurology there are many intelligences, depending on which "religious belive" in neurology there are about 9 major intelligence.

    Looking up cognitive abilities may also help you.

    If I were to come up with my own definition of what I considered "true intelligence" it would be simply this: The ability to look at the past of oneself and others, judge a reasonable course of action based upon it, then plan for the future and act upon said plan. One final piece of the puzzle, adaptability. The ability to come to the end of a line of logic, dismiss it completely, return to an earlier point, and attempt a new line of logic. Of course, there are plenty of humans that can't reasonably do that.

    For a satisfying explanation, that has made any philosophy book or religion sound like a product from a computer program which has written subjective B.S. due to knowing nothing about how it works on an algorithmic level, check out the book On Intelligence.

    what if the algorithmic is wrong ?

    True intelligence?

    Why do I think this has got to be like the "No True Scotsman" fallacy...
    Meh, I don't feel like arguing today. *Takes off stompy boots of stomping, pads away*

    True intelligence can reduce the complex to simplicity. This is useful for adaptation since it can reduce what appears to be a complex problem or set of circumstances, into a simple situation where the solution becomes obvious.

    E=MC2 was intelligent. If this relationship had ended up a complex series of equations, which only the grand masters of math could unravel, that would be impressive, but not intelligent, since it would reflect thin instead of dense.

    Intelligence is mainly just pattern recognition.

    The two hemispheres of the brain, left and right, process data differently. Intelligence o involve using both tools. The right brain does spatial or integral processing, while the left brain does differential processing. The right would notice common patterns within a group (asian) while the left sees very specific details (Bruce Lee).

    The left is better for differentiating the details for data collection, while the right is better for integrating data into simple patterns. The tough part is merging the two and translating the result into differential; simple result. This is processed in the corpus collosum.

    As an example, if a western person went to China for the first time, they would first notice how much everyone looks similar. This is integral processing. As you spend time the differential brain will begin to see differences. As these differences build, the integral brain will see integral patterns from this. The differential brain will then see even more detail from this subgroup, etc. Depending on where you stop, the goal is a simple or differential relationship that reflects the integration.

    The relationship E=MC2 is good for any differential matter/energy detail , while also reflecting the integration of all matter and energy. It is perfect.

    Intelligence implies to me an ability to integrate the knowledge of experience and to extrapolate from that a conjecture that one may employ to create new experiences with which to satisfy one's curiosity in regard to ever changing circumstances.

    not enough , thats practicle intelligence , nothing wrong with this just not enough

    Intelligence, as in the trait measured by I.Q. tests, is simply a measure of mental dexterity. It's true that the debate has been largely obscured by a plethora of derivatives recently created to make certain ethnic/gender groups feel more integrated and equal, but I think the traditional definition is still the most accurate and useful.

    still not good enough

    I.Q is about speed and knowledge

    As long as you are literate all the knowledge you need is on the test paper in front of you.

    Naturally, the better someone is at something, the faster they'll be relative to others.
