While we were talking I boiled my definition down to a very precise one, which is:
"The ability to obtain additional knowledge without additional external input"
An example being, I drop a rock, I have gained the knowledge that if I drop a rock, it falls to the ground. That's simply absorbing knowledge, and possessing this knowledge, or ANY knowledge does not make me intelligent. I could know everything, and would not be intelligent, only knowledgeable. I have intelligence only if I've able to figure out "not only will this rock fall, all objects will fall when dropped" Which would be gaining additional knowledge, without any additional input (like testing everything else to see if it drops)
Intelligence isn't something you HAVE, it's something you DO. Knowledge is ONLY something you have, so to me they are completely different, albeit decent indicators of each other.
