• Good question. I'd say that, in normal practice, generally yes. Intelligence is defined as the ability to learn new information and develop new skills. But intelligence itself is typically measured by the application of skills developed and retained. But our brains only have a limited number of neurons in them and there is only so much time in a day and only so many days in a lifetime to demonstrate this. Also, from a testing standpoint, the tests are generally designed to interpret a person's thought process, which might not be accurate. Someone coming up with particularly novel solutions to intelligence test problems might be penalized if the test designers didn't think of those solution methods. Furthermore, there are only so many questions on a test, so there is an upper limit to the score. In a theoretical world, I suppose you could have someone live forever, have infinite brain capacity, and have perfect decision-making, but, in the real world, I don't see this ever being even close to the case.

      Being a little sure is fair enough. :)
  • Yes, I think there are certain limits to a person’s intelligence because each individual has their own intelligence and that people in general are at different levels of brain power. Whatever fits in the brain can differentiate among people.
