To explain the relationship between intelligence and the internal and external world of the individual; the analytical, creative, and practical comprise each sub-theory category respectively.
Understanding the nature of the components of intelligence is not alone sufficient to understand the nature of intelligence because there is more to intelligence than a set of information processing components. Sternberg held that we could scarcely understand what makes one person more intelligent than another, by only understanding the components of processing based on an intelligence test.
For example, someone may be book smart but lack creativity and street smarts.
Another person may be creative, but lack analytical and practical skills; another may be quite practical but lack the creative and analytical abilities others have.
By incorporating analytical, critical, and practical intelligence you can achieve successful intelligence.
It’s little known that Einstein was an accomplished violinist, and even less known that had he not pursued science, he said he would have been a musician:
“I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” said Einstein.
Music can be thought of as a complex stimulus able to enrich the encoding of an event thus boosting its subsequent retrieval. However, several findings suggest that music can also interfere with memory performance. A better understanding of the behavioral and neural processes involved can substantially improve knowledge and shed new light on the most efficient music-based interventions.
Dr. Watson wrote in The Red Headed League: “Holmes was an enthusiastic musician, being himself not only a very capable performer of no ordinary merit.” The detective enjoyed music of all kinds, including opera, concert music, and obscure compositions. His special devotion to music was clear from the number of references in the stories.
Watson mentions Holmes’ violin playing several times.
Music enhances our prefrontal cortex.Mind, was thought of as the complex of faculties involved in perceiving, remembering, considering evaluating, and deciding. The mind is in some sense reflected in such occurrences as sensations, perceptions, emotions, memory, desires, various types of reasoning, motives, choices, traits of personality, and the unconscious.
Years ago there was little knowledge of the functions of the subregions of the human prefrontal cortex.
Most intelligent people fail due to: a lack of motivation, a lack of impulse control, a lack of perseverance, a fear of failure, procrastination, the inability to delay gratification, and due to having too little or too much self-confidence.
Being a bibliophile, loving knowledge, and having a chronic disease abliophobia I believe in esteemed Mr.Sherlock Holmes’ words,
“I consider that a man’s brain originally is like an empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things, so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it. Now the skilful workman is very careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain-attic. He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it there comes a time for every addition of knowledge you forget something you knew before. It is of highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.”
My mental states and processes are supposedly made up of a different sort of stuff and take place in a different sort of realm. I disregard the view of this prevalent tendency to equate mind with brain, and the accompanying assumptions about the spatial boundaries of the human cognitive realm. My brain is naturally adaptive and the natural plasticity and unique brain’s circuitry, partially busted makes it plastic par excellence and makes me endure anything and not be a victim but a Warrior ?? Princess.
I am very stimulated. My mind never stops.
