A person that puts others down also shows lack of intellect.

Being emotionally intelligent I would say is one of them.

they know how and when to say no.

The-Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom-(the bible)

they have experienced failure.

they are great BS-ers.

they say con men and ponzi schemers are some of the smartest folk around-and most criminals have high intelligence-perhaps too lazy for their own good.

These are my guesses-

They 1)ask questions to gain better understanding, 2) repeat back what they've heard for confirmation, and 3) listen intently to process what they've heard and think before they speak.

She is already showing one lack of an intelligent person..there are no three main characteristics...the human is more with intelligence...what they do with it is the proper question..Intelligence is a figure that someone else assigned too another that didn't put a round peg into a square hole..and they are even wrong about that, because, believe me, with a good sledge hammer all things fit into something else..
