The entity theory presents the belief that intelligence cannot be changed; whereas, the incremental theory demonstrates that gradual modifications of intelligence are possible.   Published in the first issue of Studies in Intelligence in September , this essay reveals why Sherman Kent believes that intelligence has become a profession and explains the kind of literature that this learned profession needs and deserves.. In most respects the intelligence calling has come of age. What has happened to it in the last fourteen years is extraordinary.

Intelligence is broken down into nine different types, also called the nine domains of intelligence. This categorization of intelligence was first theorized by developmental psychologist Howard Gardner in his book, Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences.. Since then, the Multiple Intelligences theory been used as one of the primary models for research that has gone on. As a person who loves the multiple intelligence theory, I loved reading this book. I do agree with this theory as I think general intelligence is not enough to represent a wide variety of people in this world. One of the more controversial opinions he had was if androgeny is a type of intelligence.4/5(93).

The concept of race itself is intensely debated in the social and behavioral sciences, with some subscribing to the notion that it represents a biological fact.

As with race, there is no universally accepted definition of intelligence. Admittedly, intelligence testing has come a long way in the past years. Sternberg’s Triarchic Theory of Intelligence was a revolutionary approach to human intelligence which took into account much more than empirical data.

Robert Sternberg developed his Triarchic Theory of Intelligence in the s as an attempt to understand human intelligent in terms of components rather than ability.

Multiple intelligences, theory of human intelligence first proposed by the psychologist Howard Gardner in his book Frames of Mind ().

At its core, it is the proposition that individuals have the potential to develop a combination of eight separate intelligences, or spheres of intelligence; that proposition is grounded on Gardner’s assertion that an individual’s cognitive capacity.

The triarchic theory of intelligence originated as an alternative to the concept of general intelligence factor, or g.; The theory, proposed by psychologist Robert J.

Similar to the so-called ‘personal’ intelligences proposed by Gardner, EI was said to include an awareness of. Piaget discussed several theories of intelligence and cognition. This book is a very good source for a comparison of the development of intelligence.
