The Societal View of Intelligence
Something I find very interesting is the way our society views intelligence. Tests like "Find out your IQ" and "How smart are you?" are spreading like wild fire on Facebook and other social platforms. I am of the impression that our society praises logical intelligence and the ability to count and understand difficult equations points that ability out as being "smart."
9 Types of Intelligence
Are you good at math and physics? Well, then society would say you're intelligent.But, and this is very important, scientist have finally agreed on the fact that there is more than one type of intelligence - 9, to be exact.
Think Before Speaking
So before you call someone dumb for not knowing what you know, remember that they are likely to possess some other kind of intelligence and ability, and it doesn't make them any less smart.
