  Intelligence (trait) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Intelligence is the mental capacity to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend ideas and language, and learn.
Although nonscientists generally regard the concept of intelligence as having much broader scope, in psychology, the study of intelligence generally regards this trait as distinct from creativity, personality, character, or wisdom.
Despite the variety of concepts of intelligence, the most influential approach to understanding intelligence (i.e., the one that has generated the most systematic research) is based on psychometric testing.

 Intelligence (trait) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Intelligence is a general mental capability that involves the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend ideas and language, and learn.
In psychology, the study of intelligence is related to the study of personality but is not the same as creativity, personality, character, or wisdom.
When considering animal intelligence, a more general definition of intelligence might be applied: the "ability to adapt effectively to the environment, either by making a change in oneself or by changing the environment or finding a new one" (Encyclopædia Britannica).

 Molecular Biology - The Genetic Basis of Intelligence   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Intelligence can be divided into various subcategories such as reasoning, problem solving, and memory, and so creating a consistent scale by which one can measure intelligence is quite difficult.
By the 1960s genetic studies on intelligence resulted in declining interest in the environmental origins of intelligence in psychology, enhancing acceptance of a genetic influence on intellect [reviewed in 6].

 KV Petrides - Trait EI
The theory of trait emotional intelligence (trait emotional self-efficacy) emerged from the distinction between two EI constructs (ability EI and trait EI; Petrides, 2001; Petrides and Furnham, 2000, 2001; Petrides, Furnham, and Frederickson, 2004).
The trait emotional intelligence research program was launched at the Institute of Education, University of London in 2002.
"Trait emotional intelligence is a constellation of emotion-related self-perceptions and dispositions located at the lower levels of personality hierarchies" (Petrides and Furnham, 2001).

The traits of intelligence, dominance, self-confidence, high energy and activity level and task-relevant knowledge are most often mentioned and are commonly agreed upon across all leadership analyses.
Intelligence, as we have mentioned before, is one of the most researched traits pertaining to leadership.

Symonds (36) believes that since we are never sure of the existence of traits nor of their definition, we should center attention upon reliabilities and let even validities await their turn.
Traits become predictable to the extent that identities in stimulus situations are predictable.
The characteristics of type-trait are: (1) that a direct or indirect quantitative measure of it exists, (2) that in a given age group it exists in amounts which correlate to the extent zero with other measured traits, (3) that this zero correlation stamps the type-trait with a peculiar value in interpreting mental life.

 Re: Intelligence - Bad for Evolution?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
On an evolutionary point of view, a trait (such as learning abilities) will evolve under natural selection if: there is genetic diversity for this trait (and this was already shown long time ago in Drosophila) and if its fitness benefits outweigh its costs.
Intelligence, as humans define the term, is rarely a factor in the vast majority of evolutionary changes.
Encephalization (a term used for rapid increase in brain size and, presumably, intelligence by paleontologist and anthropologist) is not new to evolution.

 General Replicator Theory - Intelligence   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Selection of this "intelligence" trait will instigate an evolutionary drive to increase the "intelligence" of Intelligent Replicators to that limited by the physical constraints of the environment.
That is, although the genes initiated intelligence, once initiated, the advantage of being a Intelligent Replicator was such that it led to the conscious selection of better genes to further increases the abilities of such intelligence, essentially forming a positive feedback loop.
Since, the brain is an Intelligent Replicator instructed by its genes and memes, all artistic, musicianship, inventiveness, etc must be the result of a random process.

 The Ideal Human   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Therefore, by increasing the average intelligence, and thus decreasing the differences in intelligence between one individual and another, those who find themselves on the extremes of normal variation will not be so isolated due to a vast gulf between their intellectual capacities.
Multiply to this the benefits of increased intelligence, which shortens both the time necessary to learn and the output per individual, and there will be a massive, long term boost to the economy which can more than pay for the initial costs of even the most thoroughgoing and expensive eugenics program.
These traits are those which are important on an individual basis, and should definitely be improved with eugenics, but are not necessary to sustain civilization itself.

Liberal disgust with racist misuse of research into intelligence is understandable — especially given its long and miserable history — but in fighting it we have a tendency to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
Technical discussions of intelligence often revolve around whether there is a mental trait called "g" (for "general intelligence") that underlies all the factors that make up intelligence.

Though we often attribute high intelligence to someone capable of impressive verbal, visual, or musical behavior, it is not so clear whether the link between intelligence and fitness is consciously understood.
