Can we measure how smart animals are?

Animals may be intelligent, but how we measure their intelligence is hard.  

Dorothy Hinshaw Patent, the author of “How Smart is Smart”, gives to us some examples for understanding easily.

Animals can do some things performed by humans. But those things are not necessarily a decision of intelligence.

For example, we read about Villa, the dog who saved a neighbor from the blizzard, beagles who sniff at luggage and signaling when they perceive drugs or illegal foods in the baggage, and Clever Hans, the horse who can solve arithmetic and identify colors. 

Though humans are impressed by these tasks, animal’s behavior may be signs of instinct or trainability, not intelligence. 

In the end, the author argues that we must develop different ideas for measuring level of intelligence to animals and we must test them depend on situations which have meaning for their lives, not just looks like how much they resemble us.


어떻게 하다 보니 엄청 만연체가 되어 버렸다.
한글을 쓸 때는 최대한 간결하고 명확하게 쓰려고 노력하는 편이다.
그런데 영어는.. 참 그게 힘들다. 생각을 아예 영어식으로 하려고 노력해보지만, 역시나 쉽지 않다.
