I'm sorry, I don't know what A.D.H.D is. If you could tell me what it stood for, I may able to assist you.

Gawsh. Even I knew it meant something like that.

And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

So you're trying to say my level of intelligence is low?

I thought it was obvious, since (if I may say so), I believe I am more mature than you.

Actually, the implications was that I knew that ADHD was something to do with attention. I have no doubts that your intelligence, measured in any way, I'm sure, is a high one indeed.

Important: Intelligence and knowing facts are two separate things.

An encycopedia has more facts than anyone could possess, but it is not intelligent.

I have taught accountants, engineers and managers how to use computers - they look pretty silly hitting the wrong keys and not knowing how to open a doucment, but I never think they are dumb. They just lack information about computers.

I agree. There isn't really any good way to measure intelligence.
I don't think that IQ is a good indication either, because it is measured with aptitude tests which only really test your logic.

I think IQ tests work fairly well. Testing a person's logical thinking can be equated to testing his intelligence. Logic relates to drawing inferences from available information. But logic can be funny too. This is syllogism.

The table is on the ground.
Therefore, the book is on the ground!

I think modern researches are saying there are different intelligences

A magazine had some "intelligence tests" in it, and a friend and I were doing all those "what is the next shape" puzzles. His wife said "I don't understand those at all". The next page had a test involving faces and names - you had 30 seconds to memorize them, his wife looked at them for a short while and said "go on, turn the page". She got every one right, and I and my friend hardly got any!

Aha, that proves something. What about natural, inherited talents, though? Could they be classed as different types of intelligence?
