My name is Patrick Miller. I have been a lurker for some time now and
thought I would take the splash by ommenting here. I am not yet an
"official anthropologist" just a wanna-be (and will be in a few years, I am
starting to apply to graduate school this semester). I will try not to be
intimidated by all you Ph.d.s.

As far as a definition of "inteligence" is concerned, I have given it much
thought over the course of a few years and here is what I have come up with:
"The degree of ability that the individual has as pertains
to the use and regulation of the processual, storage,
and data acquisition capacities of their brain and the concomitant
ability to use this insight to manipulate the environment"-Me

I realize there is a lot that can be discussed here, so I do my best to
explain and defend my crack at defining intelligence.
That is, of course, if anyone is interested.

Your future colleague,
Patrick S. Miller
