something and build something. Tangible intelligence is also called practical
intelligence. The importance of behavior and action is in this.
The intangible intelligence which is inside the mind in the inner world is called inner intelligence.
Everything that happens in the inner world happens through
imagination and mind. Research, invention, writing, all these happen in the mind
through imagination which is created by the thoughts of the mind which is
actively generated. The knowledge of the doctor, the knowledge of the book, learning
something by reading is not of action but of mind and imagination. Such persons
are lonely, do not talk much to anyone, remain silent in themselves.
