Judging from the society that I so shamefully call myself apart of, no, it can't be a measure of intelligence.
Problem now is that I can't find anything to necessarily disagree with in your post, if only because you made me think that perhaps they do have a society, just alot different than ours. It all comes down to how you measure intelligence/achievements I guess. So this would be an incredibly roundabout argument.
I had something else to add to this, but it just slipped from my mind. Will post when it comes back.
Oh and I didn't understand your second post at all, I was saying that you can't use behavior in animals or humans as signs of intelligence, because you said that outward signs (behavior) are not accurate signs of intelligence, but then said that humans and animals have similar behavioral patterns. Just seemed like a sort of contradiction is all
