This post is less about the definition of intelligence or what is intelligence, and more about why have a different definition of intelligence in the first place. To put it simply, I think how we see intelligence and how we see ourselves can be limiting or enabling. And, I'm a fan of enabling and empowering you ... with skill. My dictionary says that intelligence is, "the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations: Reason, also: the skilled use of reason ... and the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment or to think abstractly as measured by objective criteria." In my view, that's interesting but limited.
Your Positive Intelligence Quotient, or "PQ", is a measure of what percentage of time your mind is on your side. Positive Intelligence might be one of the biggest factors for reaching your potential. When your mind is on your side, you flourish. When your mind works against you, you flounder.
If we drink from the steam of polluted thoughts, we can quickly disempower ourselves, put ourselves in a state of anxiety, and lose our motivation and drive.
