Intelligence, in my opinion is rather easy too. It is a question of

Competence is the most difficult, as they are distributed on
transfinite lattice of incomparable degrees. Some can ask for
necessary long work, and can have negative feedback on intelligence.
That sounds like a quibble. Intelligence is usually just thought of
as the the ability to learn competence over a very general domain.
That's why I think that intelligence is simple, almost a mental
attitude, more akin to courage and humility, than anything else.
Competence asks for gift or work, and can often lead to the feeling
that we are more intelligent than others, which is the first basic
symptom of stupidity.
