Insights on the Nature of Intelligence from Ordinary Discourse.
Derr, Richard L.
Intelligence, v13 n2 p113-18 Apr-Jun 1989
The use of "intelligence" in ordinary discourse is analyzed to glean hypotheses that may resolve the debate among psychologists regarding the nature of intelligence. Intelligence is conceived as an innate intellectual capacity, and a sharp conceptual distinction is made between intelligence and intelligent behavior. (Author/TJH)
