You can't measure intelligence with anything like numbers. You can only compare and contrast the intelligence of one to another's. And, it also depends on culture, availability of education, and time period, on how you measure someone else's intelligence. Also, someone who's smart could look unintelligent because they're not wise (Wisdom is the ability to use intelligence).
There's just so many factors it's not worth the worry to wonder about.
Intelligence is relevant to the person, but it is not man-made. There are certainly those who are more or less intelligent than another, whether it be generally or specifically.
In my opinion, if you can learn and make use of whatever knowledge, this makes you intelligent. But if you can't learn or make use of it, then that would make you unintelligent. Not that I enjoy calling anyone unintelligent.
In my opinion the only real way to measure anyone's intelligence is through their experience's in life or their wisdom so to speak.
I do agree I.Q test don't really do anyone real justice just because you know what 2+2 means doesn't mean you know how to survive in the real world. (little extreme I know).
You don't measure it by the above post, that's for sure. Damn bots...
Ahem. I think you measure it with a mix of facts and common sense. I mean, one could be a supergenius, but lack any common sense whatsoever and thus is not truly intelligent. Likewise, someone with loads of common sense could be dumber than a brick.
True intelligence isn't one or the other, but a delicate balance of both.
I've always looked at "smartness" as being of several different forms...
- Dictionary: capacity for learning, reasoning, understanding, and similar forms of mental activity; aptitude in grasping truths, relationships, facts, meanings, etc.
- My View: total amount of brain power (useless without other forms of "smartness")
- Dictionary: acquaintance with facts, truths, or principles, as from study or investigation; general erudition: knowledge of many things.
- My View: What is known to you, Knowledge may be rare or common, Knowledge may also be focused or generalized in many areas
- Dictionary: the quality or state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action; sagacity, discernment, or insight.
- My View: the ability to look beyond what your own knowledge can offer
those are the main three anyway, I'm tired though so I may be forgetting something XD.... but it's almost impossible to measure "smartness" because it exists in different forms, you could have someone seriously lacking in intelligence who knows everything about cars for example, and you would say that they are "smart", and you could have someone with an abundance of intelligence with very little knowledge to offer on things
Like others have said, I believe intelligence can only be measured by how the person uses and applies their knowledge to things. I mean, someone could have memorized a ton of stuff in one area and never use it in their life. Come to think of it, it seems like a lot of things taught in school are like that. But also like the person above me said, I think it's also based on each individual's three areas of smartness or whatever. If someone is great at memorizing, they might not understand what they're learning, they're just remembering it. I don't believe that everyone is born with the same capability of learning, but what makes someone intelligent is how much of an effort they give to use what they learn to their advantage and in life.
But I crumble completely when you cry.

By Intellijoules, duh.
Hoe you behave in critical situation that describes your intelligence.
I will always measure somebody's intelligence by how keen they are to learn. You can know every single thing about a certain subject, but that's just knowledge. Actively and consciously understand and accepting that you have a thirst for fact, theory, discussion, exploration is much more indicative of intelligence than just listing off all the elements in the periodic table.
You define it by how you present knowledge, in a nutshell.

I believe intelligence is a capability, rather that a trait. It means that one is capable of learning, acquiring skills, and evolving as they age. The following is a simple test that should help you to tell if your intelligent, easy questions, simple test.
