General notes and information about intelligence, especially as it can affect designing and education.
“Contrary to typical classifications, [Howard]- Gardner judges intelligence to entail 'much more than IQ because a high IQ in the absence of productivity does not equate to intelligence.'” [Gil01]
I disagree. I think it's important to separate intelligence from the drive to use it.
Gardner proposes seven kinds of intelligence.
Three other kinds were proposed in 1998: naturalist intelligence, spiritual intelligence, and existential intelligence.
These definitions – and the definition of naturalist intelligence most of all – seem to dwell on a natural affinity to things external to the self. This suggests to me that intelligence may be about connection to the other.
