Intelligence Abilities
Intelligence & Creativity
Is Intelligence Neurologically Measurable?
Recent studies using MRI scans reveal correlations of about +.40 between brain size and intelligence score
Highly educated people die with more synapses than uneducated people, indicating that the highly educated differ in neural plasticity
Firas Sheikh,Tiffany Wang, Meagan Chong
Being successful in life doesn't just depend on our
book smarts

Emotional Intelligence
ability to
, and
use your

Emotional intelligence determines how people
emotional int. involves people skills, but cognitive doesn't

also accounts for more happiness and success than cognitive int.
Self Awareness
What is it?
Emotional intelligence has
4 main components...

recognizing how we respond to others
(and situations)
and how they respond to us

to better understand ourselves
see our faults ways to improve

manages conflict, collaborating with a high-performing team (brings the best out of others)
works will with difficult groups by unifying
Relationship Management increases group progress & efficiency
Intelligence and creativity are
only related to a certain extent.

the ability to produce novel and valuable ideas
To what extent are creativity and intelligence related?
A certain level of aptitude is necessary for creativity, but past a certain point it becomes inconsequential.
Meaning more intelligent people can be more creative, but
past around 120, more intelligence won't lead to more creativity.
Intelligence is more related to convergent thinking that requires one answer & creativity is more related to divergent thinking, which requires multiple answers and connections
Frontal lobes are more creative and can be damaged without damage to intelligence and logical processes
There are five components of creativity
Creativity Component #1
a well-developed base of knowledge
Creativity Component #2
Imaginative Thinking Skills
provide ability to see things in new ways, recognize patterns, and make connections
Creativity Component #3
Venturesome Personality
tolerates ambiguity and risk, perseveres in overcoming obstacles, and seeks new experiences
Creativity Component #4
Intrinsic Motivation
motivation primarily by interest, enjoyment, satisfaction, and challenge
Creativity Component #5
Creative Environment
sparks, supports, and refines creative ideas
The more ideas, images, and phrases we have to work with, the more chances we have to combine these mental building blocks in novel & significant ways
Scientists first asked "does brain size relate to intelligence?" after measuring English poet Lord Byron's five-pound brain.
It can be difficult to think of solutions for age-old problems without creativity
Good leaders often have a venturesome personality. Because they stand out and don't follow stick to the status quo, they can get a group to work well together.
Use it to:
Extrinsic Motivators
objective, such as meeting deadlines, impressing people, or making money
Use it to:
Someone who manage relationships well:
It also depends on...
Emotional vs. Cognitive
Creative people focus on the intrinsic motivators and work they find more pleasurable
The best geniuses don't work alone; they are mentored, challenged, and supported by relationships with colleagues. People with emotional intelligence need to network with peers.
Brain Mass & Intelligence
Intelligence doesn't correlate directly with brain mass; some geniuses have small brains, and some dim-witted criminals have large brains.
Brain Anatomy Studies
• Richard Haier studied grey matter and concluded more grey matter equals more better memory, attention, and language skill.
• Sandra Witelson studied Einstein’s brain; found that his parietal lobe’s lower region was fifteen percent larger than the normal brain’s.

Brain Function
Do different parts of the brain function better than others?
John Duncan discovered the frontal lobe may be a “global workspace for organizing and coordinating information”
Earl Hunt found that verbal intelligence scores are predictable from the speed with which people retrieve information from memory.
Perceptual Speed
Correlation between intelligence scores and the speeds of taking in perceptual information tends to be about +.4 to +.5.
People who perceive quickly tend to score somewhat higher on intelligence tests based on perceptual rather than verbal problem solving
Neurological Speed
People with higher intelligence seem to have a faster brain response
Nathan Brody suspects people reflect one’s “core information processing ability”
Philip Vernon speculated that “faster cognitive processing may allow more information to be acquired"
