The standard appreciation of intelligence involves the number of ways in which an individual can apply his/her intellect. The numeric result is only a reflection of these evidential capabilities. I don’t see what is wrong with quantifying intelligence on the basis of its own application: more applications of a successful nature should denote a higher intelligence. Why not? The number merely states how many times the individual has used his/her intellect appropriately. If this quantifiable reoccurrence is not a distinguishing feature of intelligence, then what is?
