In this article, traditional concepts of intelligence are challenged. It is proposed that IQ rests, which largely measure the functioning of the postrolandic cerebrum, are not a good measure of intelligence, which reflects the functioning of the prerolandic cerebrum, especially the prefrontal cortex. intelligence is defined as an active, transformational process in which sensory data are synthesized into the simplest possible representation for the purpose of maximizing behavioral efficiency. Quantum physics and Eastern psychology are discussed as they are related to intelligence. Intelligence is also investigated from a cultural and neuropsychological perspective. Culture and IQ tests are regarded as inseparable, making culture-free intelligence tests impossible. It is also proposed that intelligent behavior cannot be separated from the influence of paleocerebral functions such as emotions and compulsions.
