"Intellect is and always will be of high statue. At least it should be"
Intellect, in raw form, is the power of knowing. The intellect will
always agree upon that statement.
inˇtelˇlecˇtuˇal: having or showing a high degree of intellect. An
intellectual is apparently a bright or smart person. But a bright person is not
always an intellectual. Intellect is earned. Intellect is thought to be respected,
but a non-intellectual does not always respect the intellect. Intellect is often
thought to be "smartness". An intellectual is thought to be, in some minds,
an "academic genius". But in fact the essence of intellect is common sense. In
all everyone has common sense but the intellect has a plethora of it. Common
sense is intellect. Common sense is logic, reason, and judgment. Intellect is
logic, reason, and judgment. The power of knowing is logic, reason and
judgment. Intellect is the power of knowing, intellect is common sense.
logˇic: the science of correct reasoning; science which deals with the
criteria of valid thought. Intellect is logic. The intellect will always make
logical choices or decisions. Logic is the key point in intellect. To have
intellect one must have logic. The intellect has certain principals he or she
must attain to. They are all logical to the intellect\'s thought process. "A
logical decision is a wise decision"
reaˇson: the ability to think, form judgments, and draw conclusions.
Justification of an act or idea. Intellect is reasoning. The intellect will justify
all of his or her thoughts and actions. Justification of his or her morals is
very important to the intellect. The intellect will make assumptions and
conclusions that are very appropriate and reasoned in his or her own mind.
"Everything can be justified in life"
judgˇment: the ability to come to opinions of things; power of
comparing and deciding; understanding; good sense. Intellect is judgment.
The intellect obviously makes judgments, but intellectual judgments. The
intellect knows what he or she wants to do, and what is best for him or her,
and will make judgments or wise decisions that will he or she will benefit
from, weather it be immediate or in the future. The judgments that the
intellect makes are smart and resourceful. The intellect will not always make
the right decision or judgment but they will be reasoned and logical.
conˇceitˇed: having an exaggerated opinion of oneself or one\'s
merits. The intellect, if you will, is not perfect, no one is perfect nor could
they be. But the intellect knows. The intellect, in his or her mind, thinks that
they know more than "those people". The intellect can and will criticize. The
intellect will at times feel they are better than most people. To many people
the intellect may be wrong in his or her thinking, but the intellect knows.
mind: the intellect in its normal state; reason; sanity. The intellect will
make up his or her mind. The decision is the wise one. The judgment is the
right one. The reason is the justified one, and, if you will, in the intellects
mind, the perfect one.
"Intellect is in the mind. Intellect is in judgments. Intellect is in reason.
Intellect is in sanity. Intellect is in sense. Intellect is a way of life."
"Intellect is a way of life. Intellect is the way of life. Intellect is life."
"We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of
course, powerful muscles, but no personality" -Albert Einstein
inˇtelˇlect \'int-śl-,ect n [ L intellectus , fr. intellect-, intellegere to understand ] 1 a: common sense 2 a: reason b: logic 3 a: knowing - An intellects definition.
Intellect is uncommon, but it is common sense. Intellect is not only

a moral level that the intellect has to stand up to. The everyday person has
potential. The intellect is definite.
