What is the difference between the two?

I think there is a huge difference, but I would also like to hear what you guys think.

Knowledge is what you know, intelligence is how you use it.

IQ your ability to utilise knowledge. Memory on it's own in recalling facts is useless if you don't use logic to interpret it.

You're talking about the intelligence of using knowledge, which is still part of knowledge.

Define knowledge first.

Again this is still, in the field of knowledge. I think, intelligence can work independently.

You may not know enough about your task to go purely on knowledge, thus you apply intelligence to create new knowledge.

But, knowledge can never be new, you see.

Knowledge is what you logically know. Intelligence is being able to apply this knowledge in the real world (this is very hard for the majority of people).

I knew you'd say that, which was why I was going to give an example such as the wheel.

Say it was invented by accident, Intelligence would be the point at which the accidental-inventor realises it's use. They weren't setting out to make a wheel, it just got away from them. From that point out it is knowledge that a wheel is a good idea.

intelligence is the how you apply the knowledge.
Two people can have the same amount of knowledge, yet one may seem more intelligent because of how he/she presents it.

Yes, but, I would say it is more like this. The intelligence came first (that is a very useful), then the knowledge came afterwards (I must remember it). What do you say?

Yes, the intelligence of knowledge of that. What about intelligence that works outside of knowledge.

That's exactly what I said in the example above.

Knowledge is learned and gained. It can be quantified. It can be expanded.

Intelligence requires the understanding and application of gained knowledge. It is more of a reflection of the nature of someone's thought process and the effectiveness of this process in a wide variety of situations and settings.

Isn't that called cleverly using knowledge (intelligence of knowledge).

whereas there is intelligence that works independently of knowledge.

So it's application of knowledge you didn't know you possessed in a way...

I'd say that intelligence encourages the pursuit of knowledge.

It could be the manipulation of your situation to gain a desirable outcome.
