That's a theory in psychology actually.
The theory of multiple intelligences. I prefer that to this whole number mumbo-jumbo.

Life is fickle and ever-changing. You may have still been 3, but with being nearly 4 instead of 3, who knows what life events could have transpired to make it that much more different.

Plus if we're talking about qualifying for the Triple Nines and trying to prove our badassery, 3 and nearly 4 change everything as well.
You're right about differences between 3 and nearly 4 at least on the terms of brain development, etc, but in my opinion, there is very little difference between 3 and nearly 4 for the justifying of internet badassery.

knowledge and intelligence have nothing to do with each other.

Absolutely NOTHING.

intelligence = ability to solve new problems you have not encountered
knowledge = memorizing random **** in a book

nobody cares if you memorize all of wikipedia, and even if you did, it won't affect your IQ score at all.

The exercise of your brain would increase your IQ slightly, and it would say something about your intellectual attitude. But no, it wouldn't be able to make a genius out of an average person.

Curiosity is a usual indication of intelligence, but only because a mind that seeks knowledge does so in order to solve problems more efficiently.
