  1. “the  ability  to  gather  and  process  information  so  as  to efficiently solve problems and exploit opportunities” (Heylighen, Distributed intelligence technologies, unpublished);
  2. “the continuous process of making sense of the surrounding environment” (I cannot remember where I have read this one, but it may be
    [Kegan, R. (1982). The evolving self: problem and process in human development. Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press.] or somebody from constructive – developmental school.

    In any case the idea is that intelligence is not a static property but a process.
