What is intelligence A person may be immensely knowledgeable in a certain academic field however completely inept in another Does this mean that the person is intelligent or simply unknowledgeable in certain areas Intelligence is having the capacity to apply knowledge There are many interpretations as to what intelligence is although to the person in the street it is generally associated with academic success This disregards areas such as common sense and practical skills despite the fact that they both use the brain to achieve their outcomes For example a professional chess player is generally perceived as more intelligent than a top class chef Although each has reached the top of their trade and therefore should be classed as intelligent the chefs job is seen as more practical than intellectual Many would agree that person lacking the ability to apply knowledge couldnt be considered intelligent For instance if an auto mechanic failed a physics exam that person is considered unintelligent because the person failed to or was incapable to apply knowledge However if a physicist were to take the examination the chance of failing would diminish because the physicist is intelligent in the field of physics Intelligence though cannot be anchored down to academic success For instance a star running back could not be productive if he did not have the intelligence to rapidly collect data process the data make a decision and act in accordance with that decision In fact the running back is going through the stages of this high level process so fast that people of lower intelligence dont realize what is taking place Because they cant see the stages of the process as they unfold they think what they see is all there is to the process One could argue that this type of thinking is typical of people whose intelligence is not as high as they think it is
