Indications of intelligence. Watch
Legal definition, really? Have you got a source, I've never heard that before.
It was always my opinion that it's simply defined as being well above average or out of the ordinary.
I took GCSE's. I will soon have 3 A-level qualifications and 1 AS qualification. I have earnt a grade 4 trumpet award at distinction level. I have a BTEC award in Aviation Studies and soon to have a BTEC certificate in Aviation Studies.
So what do these show? Do these show intelligence or do they show that I can simply work hard and dedicated to the subject? Or are these qualifications just a means to an end?
My main question is where do qualifications show intelligence and situational awareness, I don't think that qualifications show any intelligence whatsoever, until you get to degree level. I have earnt an A* and 7A's at GCSE, however I don't claim to be intelligent because of it, neither do I claim to be intelligent about receiving AABB at AS. In today's student population in my school I would be referred to as smart/intelligent however I would disagree as I have never been taught how to act in situations and nothing can prepare you for any situation.
I would like to know how you would test intelligence instead of recalling knowledge as I do during any exam I have sat.
You said a "degree of intelligence". I'm not sure what that means. To me, Mozart was one of the most intelligent people to ever have lived. Having a "degree of intelligence" is a far cry from that.
