After reading Chapter 87 reviewing the unit’s content, and further researching the topic, post a two-paragraph response to the following:
- Take an IQ test; there are many available for free online (example). While you are taking it, try to notice the questions and how you are being tested. Share your results, if you feel comfortable. Do you believe it truly reflects your intelligence? What are some things you can do to improve your intelligence? Why do you believe these things will improve your intelligence?
- Many argue that IQ tests only measure analytical intelligence. But other researchers have argued that there is more than one type of intelligence. Sternberg proposed a triarchic theory of intelligence, and Gardner proposed 8 specific intelligences. What do you think is the best model for measuring intelligence, and why? Be specific.
