Intelligence
Human intelligence is the intellectual prowess of humans, which is marked by complex cognitive feats and high levels of motivation and self-awareness. Through their intelligence, humans possess the cognitive abilities to learn, form concepts, understand, apply logic, and reason, including the capacities to recognize patterns, comprehend ideas, plan, solve problems, make decisions, retain information, and use language to communicate. Intelligence enables humans to experience and think.

There is evidence that ageing cause decline in cognitive functions. Psychologists have shown that the definition of human intelligence is unique to the culture that one is studying.

Intelligence appears to be at least partly dependent on brain structure and the genes shaping brain development.[1]

Intelligence Intelligenz
... But what I want to say briefly regarding intelligence is that it defines that which embodies the cognitive possibilities of a human being and the therewith connected capabilities of consciousness in their potential and dynamic meaning. A lack of intelligence or an inferior talent in terms of intelligence therefore means that the cognitive possibilities and consciousness-capabilities are impaired and inadequate, as well as that the development of intelligence has stagnated and that an incomplete development of the cognitive and consciousness-based abilities is present. An inferior intelligence corresponds to a manifesting decline of the cognitive possibilities and the consciousness-based abilities, which is also connected with a particular impairment of skills, such as the cognition and language as well as motor skills and social skills, which ought to contribute to the level of intelligence. ... Was ich nun aber noch kurz in bezug auf die Intelligenz sagen will, ist das, dass diese das definiert, was die knognitiven Möglichkeiten eines Menschen und die damit verbundenen Bewusstseinsfähigkeiten in ihrer potentiellen und dynamischen Bedeutung verkörpert. Ein Intelligenzmangel oder eine Intelligenzminder-begabung bedeutet also, dass die kognitiven Möglichkeiten und Bewusstseinsmöglichkeiten beeinträchtigt und mangelhaft sind, wie aber auch, dass die Intelligenzentwicklung stehengeblieben ist und dass eine unvollständige Entwicklung der kognitiven und bewusstseinsmässigen Fähigkeiten vorliegt. Eine Intelligenzminderung entspricht einem sich manifestierenden Nachlassen der kognitiven Möglichkeiten und der bewusstseinsmässigen Fähigkeiten, was auch mit einer besonderen Beeinträchtigung von Fertigkeiten verbunden ist, die zum Intelligenzniveau beitragen müssten, wie eben die Kognition und Sprache, wie auch die motorischen und sozialen Fähigkeiten.
