There are so many Norwegian words for smart and clever that i can't even remember them all. Just assuming that they are all used in different connotations is unsettling :/

We measure intelligence by how many synonyms you know for "intelligent".

It's the Norwegian way.

You have already smart and clever and intelligent and wise in English.

I do not agree. We're killing everything, destroying the planet. And what for? To accumulate things that we don't need, to impress people we don't care about. =/ not very wise, we are.

Is the difference between vis and klok purely stylistic, like with wise and sagacious in English?

Two wrongs do not make a right. Fornuftig /Rational would be the difference with the instinct.
