I recently had a brief conversation with a friend after some board games. Somehow it kept circling back to the idea of being "intelligent" enough, or "not intelligent" enough to manage certain type of games. This really rubbed me the wrong way, and I kept trying to change the word from intelligence to skilled, practiced, familiar, ... . anything but intelligent.
I was not satisfied with where the conversation ended, so I'd like to take up the topic again.
The gist of my stance is :
"Intelligence is just a mixed bag of experiences, confidence, affinities and practice. Recognition of intelligence is mostly fashion, not an innate truth."
