Intelligence
Understanding depends on Intelligence. Making proper "sense" of the information supplied by Your Senses depends on Intelligence.

Is it inborn or developed?
Here are seven categories of intelligence known as the Primary Abilities of Intelligence.

Primary Abilities of Intelligence
Verbal Comprehension
Word Fluency
Number Computations
Spatial Recognition
Memory
Perceptual Speed
Reasoning/Concluding

No doubt there are limits to some of these categories in certain individuals. For example, Perceptual Speed is hampered by visual impairment, and excellent vision doesn't guarantee a timely response if Perceptual Speed is slow. Some people readily admit they're "not good at math!" ... or can't understand directions ... or sing flat. Still some of these Primary Abilities can be enhanced with practice.

Categories capable of enhancement include Comprehension, Memory and Reasoning/Concluding. In order to develop a Primary Ability of Intelligence, an Information Framework (NEXT) needs to be developed.

Ratings of intelligence (e.g., I.Q.) may fall short of determining an individual's ability to succeed and be happy in life. Newer lines of thought have provided insight to Emotional Intelligence*.

*About Emotional Intelligence.
Fascinating book, based on brain and behavioral research, Daniel Goleman argues that our IQ-idolizing view of intelligence is far too narrow. Instead, Goleman makes the case for "emotional intelligence" being the strongest indicator of human success.
