2 INTELLIGENCE AS A VIRTUE Abstract The researcher has established a new definition of what it means to be as intelligent as  we can is a moral obligation. She explains the moral obligation of acquiring intelligence  as a virtue and distinguishes the separation of being intelligent and being a good  person. Intelligence is needed to make moral decisions accurately. I support her claim  that intelligence is a moral obligation for psychologists because they are dealing with  ethical dilemmas.  Keywords:  intelligence, moral obligations, ethical dilemmas, psychologist

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
