• I think you mean “Are there different types of intelligence?”😏
  • ¶ Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

      If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
  • Intelligence is the ability to keep options open for one's self within a dynamic environment. The more intelligent a person is, the more adaptable to his or her surroundings. The human brain is essentially a computer, but not a binary computer like the kind we know best, but a deeply complex quantum computer with the ability to solve problems with a multitude of approaches. Think of two computers running a simulation: computer #1 has a more powerful processor and more RAM, so it outclasses #2, but computer #2 has a more streamlined set of instructions, so it can reach a more efficient solution more quickly. The human brain of a smart person doesn't typically have more processing power than that of an average person, but it is trained with more useful instructions.

  • I believe so, there is the intelligence where you learn a topic and can then repeat that topic or put it into practice, there is practical intelligence where some people can just do, and then there is common sense. You can have lots of knowhow, but none of the ability to apply it, and you can have lots of degrees but lack common sense. There is also emotional intelligence, ie the capability of individuals to recognize their own emotions and those of others, discern between different feelings and label them appropriately, use emotional information to guide thinking and behaviour, and manage and/or adjust emotions to adapt to environments or achieve one's goal(s), and social intelligence being able to judge a situation socially, some people are socially inept unable to judge and improvise interactions with people in an acceptable and normal manner.
  • I see you got a lot of bla bla bla! Here is a more direct answer. In 1983 an American developmental psychologist Howard Gardener described 9 types of intelligence [1]: Naturalist (nature smart) Musical (sound smart) Logical-mathematical (number/reasoning smart) Existential (life smart) Interpersonal (people smart) Bodily-kinesthetic (body smart) Linguistic (word smart) Intra-personal (self smart) Spatial (picture smart)😉

      Bla bla bla? Speak for yourself.

      I just did! Lol and I do a lot of bla bla bla myself, now that I think about it. Besides, one person's bla bla bla might be another person's interesting! I do love James 1:5-6

      Ahh, "the Theory of Multiple Intelligences," as it was called, but, in a more updated context, it is generally taught as a teaching aid, so it's more like multiple "pedagogies" than multiple "intelligences." Either way, good answer!
  • There’s artificial intelligence
  • Emotional intelligence which may or may not be the kind that an IQ can measures.
