Intelligence Between Intelligence And Intelligence

- Intelligence, as we know, is something many people would like to possess. Growing up, as children, we are constantly told that we need an education, so schools have become a competition of who can get the best grades. While this pushes some of us to get good grades, it also stresses those who do not. It is not fair to let children believe they are less intelligent just because their grades are not as high as their peers, because intelligence entails so much more. Most of us assume that with intelligence comes benefits such as a good career, money, and bragging rights....   [tags: Theory of multiple intelligences, Intelligence]

A Measure of Intelligence

- Why is it that certain people within our society are intellectually gifted while others are not. It would seem that since we as humans are of the same species, we would have a very comparable intelligence level, and yet IQ test scores for 99 percent of the population range clear from “barely functioning” fifty-five to “Einstein” 145 (based on the Wechsler IQ test). Perhaps our perception is a little skewed. Maybe everyone is more similar intellectually than limited IQ tests can discern.

Before I begin to analyse the elements of the Intelligence Cycle, I must begin with the definition of ‘Intelligence’. Throughout my research, it became apparent that the acceptance for an accurate definition of ‘Intelligence’ is still an issue to date. One reason could be because experts tend to view ‘intelligence’ through their own specialty, and would be fair to say that this could possibly be because officers within the intelligence community do not have strong bridges connecting them to each other or to policy makers, which would therefore enhance communication and sharing...   [tags: Intelligence]
