"Man becomes man only by his intelligence,
but he is man only by his heart.
~ Henri Frederic Amiel

All intelligence is active in the doing, not passive in the having.

First Order Intelligence examples - the Instinctual Intelligence
It is what you know how to do without having someone teach you -
it is part of your genetic inheritance -
it requires no self-consciousness.

bulletShift into flight/fight mode when startled
bulletSwat at and kill the mosquito biting your hand
bulletExperience arousal when you connect with someone who attracts you

Second Order Intelligence examples - the Programmed Intelligence
It is what you were trained or conditioned to do -
it is your mechanical mind or cultural conditioning -
self-consciousness is often helpful during training, then the behavior becomes automatic.

bulletStop at red lights when you are driving - go when it turns green
bulletSolve math problems accurately
bulletFollow the rules of grammar in your local language

Third Order Intelligence examples - the Integrated Intelligence
It is your integrated conscious awareness that has learned not to identify with its fragments -
it provides you the freedom to choose from your own reality tested individual framework -
requires ongoing presence and consciousness.

bulletIntegrity between what you say and what you do
bulletIntegrity between your thoughts and your feelings - and your behavior
bulletActing from an integrated sense of self - not the ego
