I believe all intellect can be seen from two viewpoints. Some intellect is obtained through persistence while other intelligence cannot be explained by education, so it appears inherited.

Persistent Intelligence (Learned)

Most People Under the supervision of an instructor find it possible to master any given task.

Persistent Intelligence (Willed)

These are born with a will that drives them to become what is in their hearts to become. They are self motivated and purposed.

By persistence in doing any given task most people can reach a level of Mastery at that task.

There are however specialized tasks that require a different form of Intelligence.

Inherited Intelligence (specialists)

If you look past academics, the number grows quickly. A NASCAR crew chief, a professional athlete, and a Broadway Entertainer can all be considered inherited Intellects. The level that they have achieved has surpassed what can be learned through persistence. It is inherited simply because it can not be taught. For the Athlete and Entertainer we get to See thier inherited Intelligence. Everyone can play football but not everyone can make the NFL. Only a physical and mental Genius (in terms of football) can make the NFL.

Some have physical and mental abilities that exceeds what is common. Genetics might help us understand how, but I believe the why is the purpose it serves for humanity.

Inherited Intelligence (Genius)

A rare level of progressive intelligence. In terms of science and philosophy these are the prophets; Pythagarus, Plato, Einstein, Tesla... These are men who have been able to access knowledge that was revolutionary.

To those who are spiritual, I am a firm believer in the Akashic records. - Where thinkers go to find what they are thinking about.

If you were created by God can you be arrogant about your Intelligence?

No, mastery is gained through consistency...

Life is the teacher, and all knowledge comes from the same teacher... Ones ability to listen to that teacher, and learn is what determines intelligence"and ignorance

You say "it" cannot be taught
What this reveals is how narrow your perception of the dynamic relationship between student and teacher is...
I feel sorry for you, as this is not natural or healthy, and is the result of oppressive, fear based learning environments.

Some peoples will is not their own, but acquired from others. Manipulation, control, ambition, whatever, they imbue those traits on say their kids growing up to become something they aren't. The resistance to that might be because internally theres a 'different drummer ' that won't allow that preselected path to become dominant.

Sadly there seems to be more ambitious people than having accepted their training to perform, succeed, be ambitious. Part of whats wrong with the world today.

Intelligence, like beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Are you smart enough to not go along with the herd? Or do you measure your intelligence as compared to the rest of the sheep in the herd?

I believe the 2 types are intelligence (taught) and wisdom (learned) which does go kinda along with the OP . Just simplified.

Who taught Einstein?

Who taught Tesla?

Since no one claims to have tauht them they progressed past what could be taught. If you don't agree it is likely you don't understand what I am trying to say.

I agree, but there is wisdom that goes past what is taught.

Einstein and Tesla went past everything that could be taught.

We have two choices.

The evolution of knowledge is natural and random.

Or the evolution of knowledge is spitual as in the Akashic record and follows a plan.

Either viewpoint, or a mixed view should lead to a humble man, but man continues to be arrogant. How can we be arrogant about intellect when we have yet to understand where it comes from?

Most of the arrogant High IQ group fall into the persistent category, but they see themselves in the specialist and genius categories.

The spiritual debate was the reason to separate them in this way. Can arrogance be justified by the created?

So glad you used those 2 examples. Both are heroes of mine

How would that explain child prodigy's?

Or Savant syndrome?

True intelligence is also a form of clarity. Critical thinking, higher order thinking requires clarity. Genius level requires clarity. I see it as being on the right wavelength, for truth, where there is no interference, just clarity. Extra sensory perception is also a form of clarity. IMO true genius is also a form of extra sensory perception.

I agree with what you say.

Also
Be the teacher... and you will get a glimpse of what you talk about. You can learn lots when you become the teacher.

Having nothing left to learn would probly get kinda boring.

Or maybe it's donor intelligence!

I agree with you and add that clarity comes from the desire for see clearly so desire plays big role in the quality of ones intelligence and talents. And when you attain clarity of your inner desires nothing much can stop you from achieving them.

Intelligence can not be taught. The hardware needs to be present for vivication. Processing speed and power, coupled with memory capacity, manifest results. For these attributes to surface, there must be a physiological catalyst, either by genetic heir or deliberate modification through science.

You can not load a 50 calibre bullet into the chamber of a 22. If metaphysical devices, such as touted ideas like, Akashic records, Morphogenic Field, the Collective Unconscious, lend to reconstitution and corporeal amplitude, then this process would fall into physiological domain.

I know for a fact that inherited intelligence is stored in the epigenome of DNA. There is scientific research that shows evidence that what life experiences happened to your grand-father or father are transferred to the offspring. Especially traumatic experiences or addictions such as alcoholism. Also this is where insticts come in. Especially, when you are confronted by a dangerous situation.
I've seen and experienced "Persistent" intelligence in others and myself. I've seen people do complete career changes because they went back to college. I've seen it in myself as I learn new languages. Verbal and computer. Also, Persistent intelligence could mean current life experiences which leads to wisdom. The only way to transfer such intelligence is to record it on some media or explain it to others.
I think the Australian Aborigenise are the masters at persistent intelligence as all their knowledge is handed down verbally through each generation. It's tenous, it's fragile, but it still exists.

I've read a little about the genetics and it's quite intriguing what we are genetically transferring from one generation to the next. And we may actually have some control over this, without test tubes.

Fascinating.
