Intelligence is goal-directed and purpose-driven, that means all intelligent activities are planned to reach a well-defined vision and self-determined goal.

Intelligence is defined as capacity for reasoning, understanding, and similar forms of mental activity; aptitude in grasping truths, relationships, facts, meanings, etc. 

Intelligence is a capability to solve problems based on information and logic. Intelligence is the capacity to understand and apply wisdom to the knowledge you are exposed to.

Have the right dose of “doubt”:
Intelligence is the ability to break any complex thought or problem to the most rudimentary parts whereas they either can be acted on or dismissed. Critical reasoning is an important aspect of being intelligent, logical reasoning is a crucial step in practicing intelligence.

Intelligence is a fundamental building block in making effective decisions. Especially in today’s business dynamic, with high velocity and uncertainty. To explore the breadth and depth of intelligence, have the right dose of doubt, really dig beneath the superficial layer, see around the corner and transcend the interdisciplinary knowledge, to get to the heart of the matter and challenge the conventional thoughts and answers.

Discover inter-relationship: Behind every problem is a relationship dynamic out of alignment, logic enables us to uncover patterns, intelligence allows us to perceive interconnectivity. Sometimes it is not possible to “see” the entire facts or truth because they exist in different planes and cross multiple knowledge disciplines, the patterns are not apparent. Just like you are searching for something, but fumble in the darkness. Until you deal with them from different sources that are related to the same matter, the real truth emerges and lightens the surrounding.

We live in a complex business environment with a high degree of unpredictability and ambiguity. An intellectual mind is contextual, with a high mental ability to discover the inter-relationship among different disciplines. It seems that a critical level of complexity is required for the intelligence to appear. The people with what being referred as highly intelligent have a strong aptitude to understand the "complexity" of the given problem, so they are able to solve the problems effectively.

Make sound judgment:
Misjudgment is often caused by lack of critical thinking or independent thinking skills, misinformation or unconscious bias. Being intelligent is not only about "being knowledgeable," but being able to expand the boundaries of knowledge, addressing ignorance and the assumptions, seeking out new knowledge to clarify issues and improve decision maturity.

Cognitive intelligence requires your ability to grasp or comprehend information; Judgmental intelligence enables you to make sound judgment consistently. The biggest challenge is knowing what you don't know, it is a reasonable moniker for decision making blind spots and biases. To improve the multitude of intelligence, the journey starts with the willingness to acquire additional information with an acceptance that you do not know enough to make conclusions, you recognize a gap in the knowledge you have and value in closing the gap in order to make sound judgments.

Intelligence is goal-directed and purpose-driven, that means all intelligent activities are planned to reach a well-defined vision and self-determined goal. Either individuals or organizations, contemporary intelligence is contextual and multidimensional. It goes beyond IQ and EQ only, there is strategic intelligence, creative intelligence, decision intelligence, judgmental intelligence, paradoxical intelligence, social intelligence, etc. Information answers the questions. Intelligence questions the answers.
