I wouldn’t say polyglots are intelligent. They don’t master languages to native fluency. I believe anyone can learn languages as long as they have a good memory, which doesn’t have much to do with intelligence. Being knowledgeable in geography doesn’t take much intelligence because, again, it’s a basis of memory, not logical analysis. Anyone could do what Steve Jobs did. Suggesting changes in coding? That’s not difficult in the slightest. Actually changing the coding? That requires a lot of intelligence. In summary, I don’t believe that you are describing true intelligence. You’re more so describing the perceptions of intelligence from a normative perspective. The average person would probably find such people as very intelligence, but I don’t believe that that’s the case.
Being “stale” has nothing to do with intelligence. Intelligence is the ability to analyze things logically and within reason.
By stale I meant intellectually stale, as in not quick witted/lacking a capacity to understand things outside of their field/inability to grasp new concepts, which all boil down to lack of intelligence to some degree.Assuming you are a mathematician and know the answer to your own question, while continuing to think of yourself as intellectually superior to others, why even ask? Especially on girlsaskguys lol
I’m not a mathematician. I am horrible with math. Hence, why I don’t claim I’m intelligent. Most high IQ people are capable of understanding things outside of their fields.

Yes, pretty much. Anything that requires logical analysis and reasoning is what I consider intelligent.
Albert Einstein (i think) defined inteligence as the ability to quickly adept and solve a new problem.Intelligence would be how good you are solving problems.There is also the theory or 7 different types of intelligence, Math-logical is only one, the other are stuff like language, musical-artistic or social.
All other forms of intelligence are worthless. They are only coping mechanisms.
