Most of my friends, for instance, say they want an "intelligent" girlfriend. Now, I know this is a philosophical question and a matter of opinion, and there is a similar question on intelligence looking for a scientific or some other formulaic way to label someone as intelligent, what I'm interested in is the social psychology aspect of it: what do they mean? What do people in this day and age think "intelligent" means? Don't they just call that to whoever is counted as intelligent by what they see as social standards? Then what are the universal standards and why?
