A lot of these are time rates because I’m trying to work up to definitions of intelligence and genius that can be reasonably measured. So I’m not really giving enough credit (yet) to problem factors like “difficulty”, “lateral thinking”, etc.
Sense impression: an easily digestible way of saying “noumena”.
Apperception: Time rate of sense impressions processed into memories.
Attention: Time rate of sense impressions processed by the brain divided by time rate of sense impressions sent to the brain.
Primary memory: a sense impression stored as a big chunk, without any distinction between the various component parts like emotions, smells, sights, or patterns.
Impressionability: Time rate of sense impressions processed into primary memories.
Types: Generalized similarities between primary memories. These types are what allow us to make sense of novel situations quickly and efficiently by analogy to previous situations. (They are also the working datatype used by the intuition function.)
Secondary memory: Information-compressed memory of a sense impression into reference symbols. To “remember” a secondary memory, the symbols are replaced by types.
Discernment: Time rate of type creation from drawing similarities from many different memories.
Exogenous cognitive function: A function that requires attention to external noumena.
Endogenous cognitive function: A function that requires attention to internal phenomena-as-noumena.
Focus: High attention. Like attention, focus can be exogenous or endogenous.
Creativity (?): Time rate of translation from discernment to a communicable format. This may only be internal (at this point).
