Logic vs IntelligenceLogic is associated with formal systems for validating arguments and inferring new information from known facts. Intelligence is associated with the human mind and the ability to solve problems in dynamic ways.For a given problem, it is possible to come up with a large number of solutions that are logically valid. The process of determining the best solution typically requires intelligence. In other words, a logical argument isn't necessarily intelligent.
ExampleDesigners are planning a sidewalk. The first designer suggests that a straight line from the door to the sidewalk is the shortest path and is therefore the logical choice. The second designer suggests that the sidewalk should be on a diagonal leading slightly north. Although this requires a longer sidewalk, 97% of the people leaving the building go north meaning that it results in a shorter path for most people.Both of the arguments above are logical. The second argument might be more intelligent as it is rooted in human factors and usability as opposed to simple mathematical distances.
