In my Last Word column, I described David Perkins' division of intelligence into three segments: neural, experiential and reflective. This is central to his argument that intelligence is learnable. A gremlin changed the word experiential to experimental, which not only fails to do Perkins justice but also alters the meaning substantially.
I hope perhaps you will see this error as an opportunity to extend experiential intelligence and to stop being experimental with other people's work.
