For many years, we have focused on proving just how superior human intelligence is. Sometimes, by doing so, we dumb animals down.
Through scientist-administered tests, we get a closer look at the things that animals are capable of doing. But are these valid? Because frankly speaking, it’s quite unfair to measure an animal’s intelligence against human intelligence. They don’t live like us.
Humans underestimate the intelligence of many animals. Here’s a great example from Mike Holman’s Instagram post.
“If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein
