  1. Now it seems that trends in the West are moving towards the fact that the ability to solve a problem is not as important as the ability to find alternative solutions.

    High intelligence contributes not so much to solving the problem as to finding new ways to solve it.

    I immediately remembered the scientists who made discoveries by looking at a bagel, and coming up with a new method.

    Everyone can find one method, but not many, but 20-30 units.

  2. A high IQ score is a characteristic of readiness to solve the tasks of the corresponding test. If the test is significant, its value will affect your quotes/authority in the relevant environment. But it is not related to intelligence. The latter is said to characterize the ability to use heuristics. As a rule, it is not tested.

  3. Intelligence is primarily your ability to THINK. And this gives you a lot-the ability to get out of difficult life circumstances, first of all. Therefore, it is necessary for everyone to raise it, I think. By the way, intellectual games, razvivalochki of all sorts, a healthy lifestyle and supplements help very well for this (I personally take turmeric every day for 3g., theanin Evalarovsky-I order it in the online store Fitomarket, it's cheaper there+I also try to eat more fatty fish). All together and helps))Thanks to all these funds, I have already won a lot of competitions and Olympiads-and this means something)

  4. Intelligence is a kind of general ability to solve problems, any tasks and, mainly, life ones. A high IQ makes it easier and faster to achieve your goals, which are harder for people with lower IQs. But this is all a perfect model. In practice, intelligence tests (for example, the Wexler test) are relatively easy to identify mentally retarded and, simply, people with low intelligence, but there are many questions about high IQ. The main one is what is considered an objective criterion of intelligence. Let's say we take the income level as a reference point. But, after all, someone can graduate from a university and get a rather low-paying job, and someone, without finishing anything, can go to cut down the forest on a shift basis and get, as a result, more. Moreover, scientists all over the world earn a lot of money. Success in learning is also not a good criterion – we can't know the true motivation of students. If the only goal for a student is not to drop out of the university, then the best option (which requires the least effort) is to study for only three grades. At the same time, his intelligence may be potentially no lower than that of Einstein, but he spends it only on drinks and girls. The level of happiness is also not suitable: a homeless alcoholic may also be happy, and a Nobel laureate may suffer from depression.

    In addition, it is not a fact that you can, in general, talk about general intelligence. For example, our emigrated oligarchs (Berezovsky, Gusinsky, etc.) did not show much of their economic genius outside of their homeland. It can be said that their abilities corresponded to a specific historical moment and could only manifest themselves in certain conditions. The conditions have changed – and it's all over. This is a kind of”special intelligence”. The best example of special intelligence is musical success, success in painting, etc. For example, absolute musical hearing allows you to accurately determine a particular sounding note (the frequency of sound vibrations), of course, after familiarizing yourself with the musical notation. People without a musical ear can try to develop their hearing, but, firstly, they will never achieve the same success, and, secondly,a small pause in training will force all training to start over. It's probably the same for visual artists. In some part of the brain, there are more corresponding fields (and they have more neurons), and so a person sees or hears differently from others. Those tasks that will be given to him very easily, for many will not be able to do (for example, tuning the guitar).
