Intelligence

 
   

Definition: Intelligence is a very general mental capability that, among other things, involves the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, learn quickly and learn from experience. It is not merely book learning, a narrow academic skill, or clever test-taking. Rather, it reflects a broader and deeper capability for comprehending our surroundings—"catching on," "making sense" of things, or "figuring out" what to do (Gottfredson c.s., 1997).
See also reasoning, problem solving, emotional intelligence, cultural intelligence, multiple intelligences, social intelligence, artificial intelligence, business intelligence, customer intelligence, and competitive intelligence.
