The human brain is the most complex physical entity in the universe.[1][2][3]

Intelligence is the ability to understand from experience, acquire and retain knowledge, discern the difference between truth and error, right and wrong, and respond quickly and effectively to new situation.

At its basic physiological level intelligence correlates strongly with the speed that electrical impulses are transmitted by nerves. This speed of transmission is thought to form an overarching intelligence factor, often referred to as g or general mental ability (GMA). It is commonly accepted that there are many sub-types of intelligence which are strongly related to g but are still somewhat independent (e.g., verbal, numerical or computational intelligence). Disturbances and deformations of intelligence having a physiological cause are studied and treated with the combined resources of medicine and psychological counselling in psychiatry.

Military intelligence is knowledge of enemy forces, conditions in occupied territories, etc. See intelligence agency.

Abstract for the 2020 journal article We Can Boost IQ: Revisiting Kvashchev’s Experiment published in the Journal of Intelligence:

This paper examined the effects of training in creative problem-solving on intelligence. We revisited Stankov’s report on the outcomes of an experiment carried out by R. Kvashchev in former Yugoslavia that reported an IQ increase of seven points, on average, across 28 tests of intelligence. We argue that previous analyses were based on a conservative analytic approach and failed to take into account the reductions in the IQ test variances at the end of the three-years’ training. When standard deviations of the initial test and 2nd retest were pooled in the calculation of the effect sizes, the experimental group’s performance was 10 IQ points higher on average than that of the control group. Further, with the properly defined measures of fluid and crystallized intelligence, the experimental group showed a 15 IQ points higher increase than the control group. We concluded that prolonged intensive training in creative problem-solving can lead to substantial and positive effects on intelligence during late adolescence (ages 18–19).[4]
