What is “Intelligence”?
"Intelligence denotes the ability of an individual to adapt his thinking to new demands; it is the common mental adaptability to new tasks and conditions of life" (William Stern, 1912)
Being "intelligent" means to be able to cognitively grasp phenomena, being able to judge, to trade of between different possibilities, or to be able to learn.
An important aspect of "Intelligence" is the way and efficiency how humans are able to adapt to their environment or assimilate their environment for solving problems.
Intelligence manifests itself in logical thinking, computations, the memory capabilities of the brain, through the application of words and language rules or through the recognition of things and events.
The combination of information, creativity, and new problem solutions is crucial for acting "intelligent".
