A new definition of ‘intellect’ has been launched on Wikipedia to make sure it’s clear which terms are which, and which one is being used in everyday speech.
The new definition was launched on Thursday by Wikipedians who said they want to make Wikipedia a more inclusive place for people with intellectual disabilities.
The definition, which was made by Wikicommons staff, includes some new terms, but leaves some old ones out.
The term ‘intelligible person’ was dropped from the definition, meaning a person who has some kind of learning, cognitive or intellectual disability.
That’s because some terms have become increasingly problematic in the context of intellectual disabilities in the past, such as ‘introverted’, ‘sensitive’, ‘passive’, ‘intuitivist’, ‘attentive’, and ‘interactive’.
The new ‘introgressive’ definition is now listed in its place.
Wikipedia also says the term ‘smart person’ should be used instead of ‘smart individual’, ‘smart society’, ‘societal individual’, and the ‘individual with intellectual disability’ term, and the term “person with intellectual impairment” should be replaced with “person affected by intellectual disability”.
The new definitions aim to clarify which terms should be included in the articles of each article, and to show where the terms come from and how they’re used.
“Intellect is a subjective, intangible, and culturally contingent concept that is not reducible to biological, physical, and mental differences.
For this reason, many people who are intellectually disabled may not necessarily understand the concept of an intelligible person,” said Wikicomans general manager of user experience, Kate Poulson.”
This is why we want to keep the definition as open and accessible as possible so that people can understand the difference.”
A Wikipedian who wishes to remain anonymous said: “This is a great first step in making sure the new definition is clear and understandable for people who might be unfamiliar with the concept.”
As a result, it will also be easier for Wikipedias administrators to keep track of how many articles are currently in existence for any given term.
“The term “intelligent person” was dropped, meaning someone with some kind, intellectual, or intellectual ability.
This is because some people use the term in the sense of ‘having a specific set of skills or knowledge that a person with a disability lacks’, or ‘being an intelligent person’.
But the Wikicouns definition states the word ‘intrinsic’ can be used to describe something more inclusive than ‘intelligence’, meaning it can mean ‘knowledge, skill, or ability that can’t be measured or verified with words or numbers’.”
Intelligent persons are not necessarily intellectually disabled, nor do they necessarily have intellectual disabilities,” the Wikipedia website says.”
In the vast majority of cases, however, the person with intellectual deficits or intellectual disabilities does have intellectual impairments.
Therefore, an intelligent individual is a person whose capacity to understand and comprehend information is comparable to or greater than that of a person without intellectual disabilities.
“Wikipedia has previously explained that it is not the place for “intellectuals” or “intelligentsia” in the article on “intelligence”.
Wikipedia is not a Wikipedia.
The site is just a wiki.
Wikipedia’s current definition includes “intellect, knowledge, or abilities that are not specifically defined in the language or culture of the person or society”.
The current definition of “intrinsibility” is also not a standard definition.
Wikipedia says “intelligence is a collective term used to define a person’s intellectual capacity, general cognitive abilities, and abilities to reason, plan, solve problems, and solve problems competently”.”
Intellectual disability is a physical and mental condition that causes a person to have difficulties in acquiring, using, or perceiving information, and generally, has no physical or mental causes,” the Wikipedia website says, “although some people with disabilities may have difficulty with one or more of these abilities.
“The new wikicommans definition of intelligence includes people with “a range of cognitive impairments, including: cognitive impairment caused by a genetic or developmental disorder; mental impairment caused at birth; and other mental conditions.
“The Wikipedia definition of intellectual disability is not currently being updated.
