Default Re: Belief and Intelligence

But the definition has to change when you test it. each word in the definition has to be represented objectively in experimentation. such as "capacity" "acquire" and "apply" an IQ test does this, but what it is really testing is how well a person takes an IQ test , it doesn't measure what is going on inside

So with an IQ test the definition of intelligence is:

"The capacity to acquire and apply knowledge in and on the given IQ test"

It has no idea, however, what is REALLY going on inside.

I'm not trying to argue, I'm just saying that the definitions mutate based upon the constructs they represent.
