    If you accidentally insulted a girl’s intelligence, should you apologize or not?
    A girl I like was saying she struggled with school in the past.
    I tried to show I cared for her by saying
    "It must be difficult for you back then.
    It must have been hard and difficult for you.".

    She got angry with what I said and said she could definitely type faster than me.
    I am not entirely sure how by caring for her she could suddenly be angry at me.
    I assume I word my responses badly and made her think I thought she is not intelligent so struggled at school.

    Around few weeks have passed now.
    She would sometimes say things to hurt me (relating to my intelligence).

    Should I apologize to her?

    Or

    Would apologizing make the situation worst?

    I see nothing wrong with apologizing for a misunderstanding, but be aware she may not apologize back for taking it the wrong way. In that case I leave her alone. You can never tell where things lead or how they turn out unless you give it a try.

If so, does it mean that intelligence is inevitable? I.e. intelligence would be a late process. In that case, intelligence may not be a final process. What would a later process be? The idea that intelligence is an evolutionary fluke may be wrong: because if intelligence is a process invoked...
