Intelligence — Robert J. Sternberg

Augmented Theory of Successful Intelligence The traditional view of intelligence is that it comprises a single general ability (g), under which are hierarchically arranged successively more specific levels of abilities, such as fluid ability (the ability to think flexibly and in novel ways) and crystallized ability (cumulative knowledge). The augmented theory of successful intelligence, in contrast, suggests that intelligence is more complex than this. Successful intelligence is defined as one’s ability to set and accomplish personally meaningful goals in one’s life, given one’s cultural context.

How can we define personal development and how does it relate to human potential?

Personal Development and Human Potential

Personal development is not measured by financial, social or external success. Instead it is determined by our efforts to develop our intellectual, physical and spiritual aspects in order to reach our full human potential. In the process of developing ourselves, we also strive to express our talents and abilities for the enrichment and benefit others. Unfortunately, in today's instant gratification culture there has been an unhealthy trend towards 'get rich quick' (substitute thin, beautiful, fit, etc.) schemes gaining ground. It implies that if you are rich enough, thin enough, or beautiful enough, you will be happy.
