On an individual level I don't think we are very intelligent. Where we have excelled is our collective intelligence and ability to share vasts amounts of data between generations and each other. You only have to be competent with knowledge collated by society in order to be considered intelligent by other humans.

For those of you naysaying this- you are doing the same thing as others- judging that intelligence is only to be measured by human standards. They have only just worked out simple tests to see if certain animals can recognise themselves in the mirror- there is no reason to think animals are not just as clever as us- but by their own standards.
