Intelligence

...Definition of Intelligence Intelligence can be defined in a variety of ways depending on one’s viewpoint or position. Defining this science is not confined to particular skill or test but can be identified through various approaches, models, or skill sets. In responding to a widely accepted fact that “only 50% of the population will have an IQ of average or above”, one must first briefly understand the origins of intelligence. There has been a debate among researchers and psychologists of whether intelligence is a unitary phenomenon or consists of various s skills and abilities. The two primary views of intelligence, global ability and specific talents, can be used to categorize individuals, as it relates to this science. Global consists of one’s ability to reason and acquire knowledge that manifests itself in a variety of ways, such as memorizing a long poem or solving a maze. Specific talent defines one’s ability to some areas but not in others. For example, a person may be able to compose a sonata but unable to solve a verbal reasoning problem. (Bukato, Daehler 2004 p.348) In order to further understand intelligence one must have a foundation for the various models’ and theories that are widely accepted and used to measure this field. One of the methods for understanding intelligence is the psychometric model (Binet-Simon 1905), which is based on testing large groups of individuals to quantify differences in abilities. The basic assumption......

...Multiple Intelligence and Personal Success Psy 300 April 10th, 2010 Dr. Theresa WattsMultiple Intelligence and Personal Success For years people have wondered what makes one intelligent. Humans have a desire to understand things and possess a high intelligence. It was often deemed that possessing strong mathematical and verbal skills were what made one intelligent. The very first formal testing of intelligence was developed in 1905 by Albert Binet and Théophile Simon called the Intelligence Quotient or IQ test (Wikepedia, 2010). As time has progressed researchers have studied the human mind and behavior allowing them to prove that intelligence is much more than being skilled at math, logic, and attaining strong verbal skills (Kowalski & Western, 2009). Intelligence implies understanding, knowing, and the ability of being skilled in certain tasks. Of the defining elements of intelligence can be displayed in everyday activities other than reading and writing, thus the IQ test is limited in its ability to assess one’s knowledge and capabilities. Individuals who are in fact skilled in reading may lack skills in math or another area (Kowalski & Western, 2009). Multiple Intelligence theory In 1983 a professor at Harvard University, Dr. Howard Gardner developed the multiple intelligence theory (Dr. Thomas Armstrong, 1998-2000). For centuries western society has focused solely on mathematical skills and verbal abilities (Dr. Thomas Armstrong, 1998-2000). The...

Intelligence

...Intelligence Intelligence is not being educated, successful, or even being smart. You don’t have to have endless knowledge to be intelligent. Intelligence is having the ability and being capable of acquiring and applying knowledge and skills. A person’s intelligence can be measured by an IQ (Intelligence Quotient) test. An IQ test measures a person’s mental performance in fluid intelligence, memory, processing speed, and quantitative reasoning. An Intelligence Quotient is a number representing a person’s reasoning ability compared to the statistical average for their age. The most common and most accurate IQ tests are the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale and the Stanford-Binet test. The Stanford-Binet test was the very first IQ test, designed by French psychologist, Alfred Binet, in the early 1900’s. The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale was developed soon after by David Wechsler, an American psychologist. Although there are many other online IQ tests available today, they are not as accurate as the official Wechsler and Stanford-Binet tests. Ninety-five percent of people have an IQ between seventy and one hundred thirty. A lot of people are either just above one hundred thirty or just below seventy. Only five percent of the population have either extremely high IQs, above one hundred forty, or extremely low IQs, below seventy. If you have an IQ of one hundred forty or above, you are considered a “genius” and are eligible to join Mensa, the largest......

What Is Intelligence

...Intelligence as we all know, is the key factor for preforming most of society's learning and daily functioning. However, if someone were to merely ask “What is Intelligence?” could most American's give an accurate answer? The definition for intelligence has long been a term of context for many decades with no individual really understanding the true meaning behind it. Many studies have been conducted to form the conclusion that intelligence encompasses three different sub-sets of Intelligence: I.Q., E.Q., and personality. One of the earliest people to study the literal measurement of an individual's intelligence was British psychologist Sir Francis Galton. Galton's early studies in hereditary improvement led him to believe that intelligence was something that was inherited and could not be changed. He was convinced that by selective parenthood he could create genius' at will, this theory came to be known as “Eugenics.” According to Galton's Eugenics intelligence encompassed things such as reaction time, eyesight, cognitive ability, etc (Psychology History). However, early studies failed to show any validity to Galton's findings and soon enough they fell out of favor. (What is Psychology? p.287) In the decades after Galton's research many psychologist's began to focus heavily on the cognitive aspects of intelligence instead of trying to link it with physical functions such as reaction time and eyesight. During this period researchers nearly debunked Galton's belief that......

Intelligences

...After taking the Multiple Intelligences Questionnaire I learned that my top three intelligences are; Musical, visual, and verbal. Each of those seems to fit my personality. I use each of them in everyday activities such as sitting in class, listening to someone at work, or even just studying at home alone. Music is in my life every day, whether I’m playing guitar or just listening to music. Listening to music while I study is very effective in helping me remember crucial details. I remember writing a song to study for finals, I would just sing it in my head when I forgot something and because of that I aced my final. Also I comprehend things better when I listen to music; it clears my head of anything else and allows me to focus. I cannot have the music too loud though that tends to distract me. Being musical may not help me professionally unless the work comes home with me mostly because it would be unprofessional to listen to music while working. I am also a visual learner; I have a photographic memory which really helps when you don’t have much time to study for a test. Graphs are great in lectures in my opinion, my science teacher always had them in his lectures and that’s where I began to love them they helped me understand everything better along with being easy to remember. When someone shows an example of how to do something I can follow it easier than trying to figure it on my own especially when it comes to piano. Having the option of watching someone do......

...Intelligence: Analyze Executive and Legislative Roles Mambiri Goldstein Affiliation Intelligence: Analyze Executive and Legislative Roles Compare and contrast the elements of Executive Order 12333: United States Intelligence Activities and the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004. The order and the act both serve to intensify security and intelligence extraction that intends to secure both national and homeland security (Jordan, 2009). They were both implemented under the executive designation of the sitting presidents as the leaders of the executive function. Executive order 12333 was biased towards empowering the Central Intelligence Agency in extracting information from national agencies, while Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 was biased on physical and identification screening of individuals at U.S. border points with emphasis on air travel (Jordan, 2009). The former was established with the sole aim of strengthening CIA’s covert actions that leaned on espionage, while the latter was largely triggered by the September 11th terrorist attack. How do these executive and congressional orders affect intelligence activities? Executive and congressional orders affect intelligence through extending the responsibility and powers of the United States Intelligence Agencies (Chauhan, 2004).

Emotional Intelligence

...Emotional Intelligence Global Leadership Emotional Intelligence Introduction: Emotional intelligence refers to the ability to identify, assess, control and evaluate one’s emotions and that of others. Some researchers propose that emotional intelligence can be conditioned and strengthened, while others argue it is an intrinsic characteristic. Since 1990, Peter Salovey and John D. Mayer were the principle researchers on emotional intelligence. In their influential article "Emotional Intelligence" in the journal: Imagination, Cognition, and Personality. They defined emotional intelligence as: "the subset of social intelligence that involves the ability to monitor one's own and others' feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them and to use this information to guide one's thinking and actions" (1990). They introduce a model that determines the four branches of emotional intelligence: the perception of emotion, the ability to reason using emotions, the ability to understand emotion and the ability to manage emotions. After becoming aware of Salovey and Mayer’s work, Daniel Goleman wrote his famous book, Emotional Intelligence, in which he defines it as: "managing feelings so that they are expressed appropriately and effectively, enabling people to work together smoothly toward their common goals." (1995). He states that emotional intelligence is made up of the following characteristics: Self-Awareness, Self......

... Professor Gelven General Psychology II 21 March 2015 Intelligence Research shows that individuals learn in different ways. This has lead to several studies, which have inferred the different characteristics associated with how people receive, process and utilize information. A keen interest in these individual differences, named "learning styles" saw an increase in the 1960s. Today, even as the field of psychology has made as shift to studying more in-depth behaviors of group, learning styles continues to play significant roles in how human beings learn. What seems to remain a constant in attempting to interpret how learning is done is the complexity of the human mind in terms. It is quite unique that one person is able to process information one way while another does so in a contrasting manner, yet both people receive, process and ultimately arrive at the same level of knowledge about what they are taught. Understanding learning styles, which are often simple, yet complex, allows educators and trainers to tailor their methods of teaching and materials to accommodate different styles of learning. Generally speaking, there are three types of learning styles. People receive process and retain information by using visual, auditory or kinesthetic methods. There has also been evidence that these learning styles often lead learners to develop characteristics that have led experts to properly gauge levels of intelligence (Ldpride.net). Those that learn by using their eyes,......

Environment includes a person’s immediate surroundings such as one's family, the workplace, or a classroom. Intelligence is one of the most talked about subjects within psychology. There is no one definition of what exactly intelligence is. Some researchers have suggested that intelligence is a single ability, while others believe that intelligence is a range of skills and abilities.

Intelligence

...Intelligence is a construct, not a thing (eysenck 1979; Humphreys), as a result it is difficult to arrive ar a definition of ability/intelligence. Rather it is defined based on the behaviour that indicates various levels of intelligence. It is quite easy to say what make a person intelligent rather than what is intelligence. The concept of intelligence refers to a systematic individual difference in the performance of tasks that involves the manipulation, retrieval, evaluation, or processing of information. Ability Testing – Individual Test Widgor and Garner 1982 States the measurement of ability represent one of the most widespread applications of psychology in everyday life. Ability test range from those that looks at the general mental ability we refer to as intelligence to those that tap specific abilities such as spatial visualization. Measures of general intelligence have the broadest application in that they are used in educational, clinical, and work setting as aid in making a wide variety of decisions. The role of the examiner Psychological testing involves standardization, however in an individual intelligence test standardization is difficult to achieve. • The psychologist presence is seen as a stimuli that will affect ones behaviour • Characteristic of the examiner such as age sex, race physical attractiveness, social and non verbal skills affects a subject’s response. • The behaviour may change based on a response by the......
