KNOWLEDGE versus INTELLIGENCE.
Dear Intellectual Adventurers, Cranial Conquerors, TNNWC Members, Colleagues, Friends, Nerds, Geeks, M.E.N.S.A. Megalomaniacs, and curious readers (who might have gotten here by accident).
The news is indeed sobering. Someone who is extremely knowledgeable may have a terrific accumulated intellectual database of factual information, but he or she is not necessarily intelligent. A knowledge base, while very, very useful, is a function of exposure, memory and some other "photostorage skills."
Intelligence, on the other hand, is the ability to:Apply knowledge in making comparisons, seeing associations, generalizing, extrapolating, synthesizing and analyzing knowledge.
An intelligent person will make the most efficient use of knowledge, and will stand to benefit most by a greater knowledge base from which to draw comparisons, recognize patterns, and develop alternatives and solutions.
Your college pal who could recite the number Pi to 50 decimal places might have had a wonderful memory, but he was not necessarily intelligent.
I'm glad that we cleared that up.
