Why is memory the primary measure of intelligence?


Seems people admire (and academia grades accordingly) a person's ability to store information, sort of like a computer processor, and this is used as the primary measure of intelligence. I believe this is backward because a computer will always information processing better than a human. I believe we should instead evaluate intelligence based on creativity, problem solving, and a person's ability to interpret value (non-linear/non-arithmetic math computers can't always do). What is your opinion?
