I got into a discussion about “intelligence” on another thread .

There are all sorts of different kinds of intelligence. There’s “spiritual intelligence.” Wisdom. Probably the highest form of intelligence.

Then there’s “functional intelligence.” That’s the ability to get from Point A to Point B as quickly and cleanly as possible

Then there’s “cunning intelligence.” Hustlers and con-men that can run numbers on people who have less intelligence on this level.

There’s “intellectual intelligence” — that’s the ability to think in concepts.

Then there’s “emotional intelligence.” People who have a deep understanding of feelings.

Then there’s “instinctual intelligence.” My body instinctually knows how to digest food and breathe in air. My conscious mind doesn’t know how I do it. But my instinctual intelligence does.
