Intelligence is an inherent quality. Everyone is intelligent by very nature of consciousness.
Let me give you an example.
When you catch fever does your body treats it as everybody else ?
Can you feel pain, emotions like we all feel?
Do you enjoy as much with your senses as everyone else?
Intelligence is there for everyone as life is intelligent. For some it is unlocked since birth and for some it needs to be unlocked.
To unlock your intelligence following steps are needed.
- Quizzing : Challenge yourself. Take some quizzes, puzzles, write something (A great metacognition device).
- Communication : Talk to a lot of people. Mirror neurons work in this way. Whenever we talk to anyone our mirror neurons start to learn a lot just by observing.We used to learn things even when we were not communicating via language since per-historic ages.
- Meditation : Meditation is said to do wonders to mind. It just puts your mind to relaxed state which helps it grow.
- Faith : Having faith in yourself and in the growth mindset of brain is important. If you think you can, you can.
You are intelligent but you only need to discover it.
