Quite true. One minor point--for intelligent people, everything requires brain activity. Running isn't moving one foot in front of the other as fast as possible, it's finding the optimum efficiency of your own body. It's not punching someone as hard as you can, it's using as much of your body as you can to hit while leaving as little as possible vulnerable. It's not endless practice to improve your drawing abilities, it's learning the proportions of the human body sufficiently well.

so i can hardly see how a man that is good in history is intelligent
just because he is good in history.
if you are intelligent you must be good not in everything you do
(as rick said) but good in things that requires brain activity!
Heh. MENSA. I could pass the Mensa entrace exam(120 IQ, I think) blindfolded, double amputated, sleep deprived, and under the influence of illegal psychoactive drugs. And I'm modest, too... :)
so, i think that i can easily say if someone is intelligent or not if i talk with him, but i am not a racist!
i think that i am smart, smarter than the average
i am also a MENSA member (but usually people take this as a bad
thing to say)
