The first deals with relations between intelligence and experience; the second, with relations between intelligence and the external world; the third part with relations between intelligence and the internal world of the individual.
Sternberg begins by sketching the history of intelligence research. He then outlines the three parts of the theory and adduces supporting evidence, including evidence from studies of ‘practical’ as well as ‘academic’ intelligence. He considers the issues raised by exceptional intelligence and by intelligence testing.
His conclusions will be of interest to all those concerned with intelligence, its development and its measurement. Paperbackpages.

Sternberg’s spectacular research career in psychology had a rather inauspicious beginning. In elementary school he performed poorly on Beond tests, and his teachers’ actions conveyed their theoyr expectations for his future progress. Everything changed when his fourth grade teacher, Mrs.
Alexa, saw that he had potential and challenged him to do better. With her encouragement, he became a high- Robert J. With her encouragement, he became a high-achieving student, eventually graduating summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Yale University. In a gesture of gratitude, Dr. Sternberg dedicated his book, Successful Intelligence to Mrs. Sternberg’s personal intellligence with intelligence testing in elementary school lead him to create his own intelligence test for a 7 th grade science project.
He happened to find the Stanford-Binet scales in the local library, and with unintentional impertinence, began administering the test to his classmates; his own test, the Sternberg Test of Mental Abilities STOMA appeared shortly thereafter.
Beyond IQ: A Triarchic Theory Of Human Intelligence
In subsequent years he distinguished himself in many domains of psychology, having published influential theories relating to intelligence, creativity, wisdom, thinking styles, love and hate. Sternberg’s Triarchic Theory of Successful Intelligence contends that intelligent behavior arises from a balance between analytical, creative and practical abilities, and that these abilities function collectively to allow individuals to achieve success within particular sociocultural contexts.
Analytical abilities enable the individual to evaluate, analyze, compare and contrast information. Creative abilities generate invention, discovery, and other creative endeavors.
Practical abilities tie everything together by allowing individuals to apply what they have learned in the appropriate setting. To be successful in life the individual must make the best use of his or her analytical, creative and practical strengths, while at the same time compensating for weaknesses in any of these areas.
This might involve working on improving weak areas to become better adapted to the needs of a particular environment, or choosing to work in an environment that values the individual’s particular strengths. For example, a person with highly developed analytical and practical abilities, but with less neyond creative abilities, might choose to tfiarchic in a field that values technical expertise but does not require a great deal of imaginative thinking.
Conversely, if the chosen career does value creative abilities, the individual can use his or her analytical strengths to come up with strategies for improving this weakness.
Thus, a central feature of intelligrnce triarchic theory of successful intelligence is adaptability-both within the individual and within the individual’s sociocultural context. Books by Robert J. Trivia About Beyond IQ: No trivia or quizzes yet.
