crystallised
Explanation:
"Cristalizada" is actually a literal translation of "crystallised" here. The use of this particular term in the Spanish text is a clear indication that Raymond Cattell's concept of fluid versus crystallised intelligence is being invoked:

"What are fluid and crystallized intelligences? Psychologist Raymond Cattell first proposed the concepts of fluid and crystallized intelligence and further developed the theory with John Horn. The Cattell-Horn theory of fluid and crystallized intelligence suggests that intelligence is composed of different abilities that interact and work together to produce overall individual intelligence."

"En resumen, el psicólogo Cattell sugirió dos formas diferentes de inteligencia. La inteligencia fluida se define como la capacidad de resolver nuevos problemas, usar la lógica en situaciones nuevas e identificar patrones. Por el contrario, la inteligencia cristalizada se define como la capacidad de utilizar el conocimiento y la experiencia aprendidos."

So I think you'll have to go with the same term in the translation, because that must be the specific intellectual background of the text.
