I’ve heard a lot of people try and define intelligence. Never really bought into any of them. Just just now I heard a guy say his definition of intelligence was the ability to acquire new information and change your mind or opinion based on the new inputs.
How often have we shown someone a picture of A and had them say that’s not A? How many stop using their intelligence at age x?
Intelligence always adjusts, adapts to the new data environment. What’s the alternative? What happens when a species fails to adapt?
