So: The dictionary says,
is . . . . . . "The capacity to acquire and apply
say Intelligence is . . . . . . . . THE
ABILITY TO PERCEIVE, KEEP AND APPLY KNOWLEDGE
This is equivalent through related definitions.Actually, the first definition encompasses the concepts of
transmission, retention and application of knowledge.However, my definition shows the "building blocks"
of intelligence more precisely:
Ability – The degree
Perceive – The
reception of information through any of the senses
Keep – The storage of
information by the brain . . . . . . memory!!!It is clear that there is an indefinite time period
associated with this part of intelligence.
Apply – The rational
use of stored knowledge with reference to a particular thing or
Knowledge – That
which has been perceived.
Definition of Memory – "The mental faculty of retaining and
recalling past experience"
So, to be even more precise from a mechanistic point of view, we must
consider the processes of information "injection" and
"reclamation" from storage.
Therefore . . . . Intelligence is . . . .
ABILITY TO PERCEIVE, STORE, KEEP, RECALL AND APPLY KNOWLEDGE
Discipline to Memorize
Retention Capacity . . . . . Time
Use of Knowledge
I think we forgot one . . . . . . . apply implies the reasonable
application of knowledge.Therefore
our definition must include a term . . . . . say, evaluate!
So . . . . . . .Intelligence is:
ABILITY TO PERCEIVE, STORE, KEEP, RECALL EVALUATE AND APPLY
