prod/ce desirable res/lts' ;&esirable res/lts; by +hose standardsD &esirable res/lts in the eye o- the
beholder' My intelligence is *y ability to prod/ce desirable res/lts according to *y standards' And -
beca/se ! li2e in an interdependent +orld - i- nobody else thinks *y res/lts are desirable) then ! ha2e a

<ne +ay o- describing *y occ/pation is that !,* in the b/siness o- prod/cing and selling in-or*ation' A
desirable res/lt -or *e is that eno/gh people b/y *y in-or*ation so ! can li2e -ro* the proceeds'

Take another look at *y bold ne+ de:nition) ;intelligence is the ability to prod/ce desirable res/lts';
(hat,s +rong +ith this de:nitionD !,ll tell yo/' (hat /se is an ability i- it,s not being acti2ely applied to
prod/ce desirable res/ltsD Let *e propose a *ore po+er-/l de:nition? intelligence is the co*bination
o- actions that prod/ce desirable res/lts' Thinking is one o- these actions' !ntelligence) as ! de:ne it)
incl/des the co*bination o- all the other actions that act/ally prod/ce desirable res/lts'
And +hat is an ;intelligence testD; Li-e is an intelligence test' Eo/ are intelligent to the e1tent that yo/r
li-e consists o- desirable res/lts yo/ prod/ce' The rele2ance o- traditional ;!G; tests is 2ery li*ited'

The Most Powerful Intelligence Increaser
!n order to prod/ce *ore desirable res/lts) +e need to learn' !n general) +e li2e in a +orld in +hich

B/t there is a */ch *ore po+er-/l intelligence increaser' !*agine that e2ery +eek - or e2en e2ery day
