6 What is Intelligence? Intelligence  (in all cultures) is the ability to learn  from experience, solve problems, and use our  knowledge to adapt to new situations.  In research studies,  intelligence  is whatever the  intelligence test measures. This tends to be “school  smarts.” Have you ever thought that since people’s mental abilities  are so diverse, it may not be justifiable to label those  abilities with only one word,  intelligence?

7 General Intelligence The idea that  general intelligence ( g )  exists comes  from the work of Charles Spearman (1863-1945)  who helped develop the  factor analysis  approach in  statistics. Athleticism, like intelligence, is many things

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
