Hello,

Can you give me your definition of intelligence/High IQ?

Furthermore, do you believe that our current educational system is indoctrinating, instead of educating?

I look forward to your responses.

Kind regards,
Chad

I think intelligence is the ability to process information quickly and give a sensible solution/ direction, which may or may not be conventional, in a new environment.
IQ is a measurement of how good one is in IQ test.
I think the current education system is ok, but I think the tests and exams is not good. It’s like you are testing if one is good at doing tests and answering repetitive questions, not really testing how info should be process and giving outputs. But our science and technology is not good enough for an educational system not depend on testing but individual ability. That’s why, yes, for now it’s indoctrinating.

I wouldn't describe our current sysyem as indoctrinating. It's definitely educating. But it's educating learners to pass a test. That's largely it. If you remove all the exams from thw curriculum, and remove all the subsequent lessons which is simply teaching exam and revision content, you aren't left with a great deal that can be called educating.

Depending on the school you can have a huge amount of emotional support. But is that education? I'm not sure.
