  1. This is a purely theoretical question. Therefore, the answer to it depends solely on understanding the concepts =))

    For example, there are people who define intelligence as the ability to make decisions. Make a choice. From the options suggested by the mind.

    That is, they distinguish between intelligence and intelligence. and you?..

    Others define intelligence as the ability to distinguish and compare. Solutions can't be squeezed in here.

    Still others distinguish between concrete-sensory and abstract-logical intelligence. And the fourth adds practical intelligence. Maybe it solves something?

    What is a “solution” in general? And decision-making? When this is a joint decision, it is clear. Discussed and agreed. Are you sure that anyone makes the decision alone?

    It's pretty hard to check =))

  2. To respond, you need to break down the decision-making process into its component parts.

    What happens when you make a decision? First, you can't make a decision if there are no options. That is, first you need to have a set of options from which you can choose. No matter how we understand intelligence, it seems clear that intelligence affects what options are available to you, because many of them need to be thought out.

    What happens when a set of options is formed? You need to choose from them. And that's where the problems start, because these options aren't just a passive item on the list. These options roar inside your head ” CHOOSE ME!!!”. And if the roar of one drowns out all the others, then you have no choice, you just listen to the only voice you hear. This is called the ” affect state.” What we call will is the ability to stifle that roar. Put affects on myut so that our intellect can choose an option in silence according to some other criteria than the volume of the scream. And when the decision is made, it is the will that we call our ability not just to think “well, it would be right to do so”, but to shut up everything inside that prevents us from doing so.

    From this scheme, it is obvious that intelligence only increases the range of choice and the quality of the decision made, while the will makes available the very possibility of making a decision. Without a will, a person becomes a hostage of emotions.

  3. ­čĹćAbsolutely two different concepts opposing each other..

    Intelligence is the ability to think, to think consciously, rationally, obeying the laws of logic. Intelligence is thinking with the formation of its own concepts, conclusions, and reasoning.. I would also add the ability to think abstractly!

    And the will is an irrational sphere of the psyche, adjacent to emotions, fantasies and imagination.

    I tend to think that a decision is a process that will be more or less rational for itself, and can be based on explicit and implicit knowledge. And if we make (as we think) a rational decision, then we turn on intelligence!

    something like that..

  4. Decision-making is a volitional act, active. It is accomplished even without intelligence, if you pay attention to the same animals that act in accordance with their desires and will to realize. The use of rational tools by the will to solve problems involves an additional regulatory behavior “due”. Not only in the sense of “desired as an attraction”, but-as “correct”, “solution”, “principle” and so on. To what extent this is derived from the rules of the environment and corresponds to the goals of the person himself is a separate question. If there is a clear conflict between what is desired and what is due, this can affect decision-making, not to mention internal dissatisfaction with the results obtained.

  5. Brains are subject to intelligence.

    Any decision is accepted,

    But if volya walks along the avenue,

    Leaving you to your own devices –

    Business will be left alone.

    The intellect makes a decision, and the decision is executed by volitional efforts.

  6. Intelligence chooses the best option (information part),

    the will is needed if there is a risk or difficulty in the chosen dangerous or time-consuming option (to overcome fear or laziness).

  7. I think that the concept of artificial intelligence is well known and understandable to everyone. No one wants their computer to live its own life, making decisions on its own that a person doesn't ask for.
    Accordingly, human intelligence is designed to solve the tasks that are assigned to it, and no more. But who is betting? That's another question.
    The intellect can show will, but within the scope of the task at hand. The intellect will never ask: why am I doing this? That is, why do I solve this problem, and who sets this task for me?Since this is beyond the scope of the solution.
    The question “why am I doing this?” it implies the presence of a higher intelligence, a higher Self, which can stop or continue solving the problem. But this is no longer intelligence.
