Actually, we've dropped the subject.

But I'm curious: Why does everyone seem to think Minerva is "less intelliegent" than Artemis? Do you just assume that, or is there actual basis for your claims in the book? (Maybe on some psychological level we assume that no one can be more intelligent/equal to Artemis Fowl...)

I'v never liked to judge intelligence because I think it's impossible to measure any accurate intelligence quantity or the like. Therefore I would not say that eather Artemis nor Minerva is smarter than the other. I can say that they are smart since that's a very unspecific comment about them.

The reason why some people considers Artemis Smarter than Minerva might be because she was outsmarted by him in the only book she has appeared in so far. Another factor might be that Minerva seems to behave much like the old Artemis, and the progress Artemis have made through the books is supposed to make him stronger (more intelligent perhaps). But I'm just putting out hypothesises here. Perhaps it's just that the people who think Artemis is smarter than Minerva are the only ones who say anything about it, making it seem like many people believes Artemis to be smarter than Minerva.

That is my error. I made a rhetorical fallacy in stating that EVERYONE considers Minerva the less intelligent of the pair.

I agree. Nothing can measure intelligence because people can be intelligent in different ways. Getting a hign score on an IQ test does not necessarily mean you are a genius. A lot of people think that the grades a person gets in school tell whether or not they are intelligent. But I have known a lot of people who are very intelligent and don't get the best grades.

Yes, but she never thought faeries existed, she only knew that demons existed. She had no research on it, so couldn't come to an accurate conclusion. Before I said Minerva is less intelligent, I meant she seems less intelligent. She has a lot more emotion than Artemis did at her age, which helps Artemis manouver her easily. In the beggining of the book Minerva out manouvered Artemis several times, but in the end Artemis won, and Minerva kind of got in his way. It seems that Artemis is more intelligent, but I don't think he is that much more.
