Personally, I would define intelligence as one’s own capability and learned skill to achieve success in their culture or community. Being intelligent means different things in different cultures, so I personally have a hard time thinking of a broad definition of the word. In my own life and growing up, I was raised to believe that in order to be intelligent I needed to exceed in my studies at school and then go on to college and receive a higher education. In order to be intelligent in my life meant to do well in school. This lesson on intelligence really got me thinking about what it means to be intelligent. I agree with the theory of successful intelligence which says, “intelligence is defined as one’s ability to achieve success in life in terms of one’s personal standard’s, within one’s socio-cultural context.” (R.J. Sternberg and E.L. Gringorenko p. 1428) Being intelligent means different things in different cultures, and so it is important to understand a person’s background when determining their intelligence. I see intelligence being viewed as an authentic quality one person possesses, and in the future everyone will be viewed as intelligent in his or her own different ways through their different strengths. In multicultural communities, we need to look at each person as an individual, and not compare them to other people and general standards to determine their intelligence. “When cultural context is taken into account, individuals are better recognized for and are better to make use for their talents.” (R.J Sternberg and E.L Gringorenko p. 1433) I think that it is important to see each person as intelligent in their own way, especially in multicultural communities. In the future, I think that people will steer away from using IQ tests to determine one’s intelligence, and come up with a more organic way of measuring intelligence that will better show an individual’s talent.
