What is the difference? I think knowledgeable may be just on a given subject where intelligent is smart on a number of subjects. What do you think?

I can see that. I'm often surprised at how much my younger son knows about certain things. He's very knowledgeable on certain subjects and intelligent on many. I think we all are if we think about it long enough.

Knowledgable is someone who has learnt from experience and through deliberate teaching while Intelligent is someone who posseses a high intellectual ability that comes from his/her parents.

knowledgeable is something that you got from school/books or gained through experience while intelligent is natural you dont need to read a lot of books and get high grades to be intelligent

I think that being intelligent is inherent, and was dictated by your genes the day you were born.On the other hand being knowledgeable is learned and can be developed as we grow older.Someone could be knowledgeable but not intelligent, and someone could be intelligent but not knowledgeable in a particular subject.

That seems to make sense to me. I was watching a movie last night and it said something similar about intelligence and intellect.

i think intelligence is more about how you observe, think, analyze and apply things.
