It is so easy, or hard. What do this mean? How can something be intrinsically easy, or hard? For example, a math problem can be easy to a math professor, but hard to an engineer. Maybe it is a reflection of skills? Consider an IQ questions. These questions is suppose to be neutral with respect to specific knowledge. If so, then some questions might be easy, while others hard is depended on individual differences. If so, then it reflect something like one 's intellectual capacity.

@TuringEquivalent,
The math problem is just "there"
It is neither hard nor easy.

Those approaching the problem make it hard or easy, depending on how they see it.
