Video: What is Intelligence?

My field of psychology focuses a lot on “intelligence”. I personally don’t believe there is a proper definition for intelligence, nor a test for it. I’m not talking about a spiritual cosmic hippy explanation where “everyone is intelligent and beautiful, maaaaan”, I’m referring to the ultra-​​Western way of testing intelligence. It’s biased and unfair to those who haven’t grown up in a white, Western society.

“If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” - Einstein1

How confident are you in a concrete definition of “intelligence”?

  1. Although it’s not clear Einstein ever said those words, it’s still a nice quote. []
