Crystallized intelligence is the ability to use knowledge and experience. Fluid intelligence is the ability to solve new problems independently of knowledge or experience.Generally speaking, crystallized intelligence often results from fluid intelligence. For example, a child typically experiments with things in order to understand them. As a person gains experience, their crystallized intelligence grows. Abilities associated with intelligence such as mathematics or language are mostly crystallized abilities by the time a person becomes an adult.
