Today’s Principle to Follow:
Principle #7: Intelligence and Learning Habits Can Always be Improved.
   Intelligence and IQ are very misunderstood concepts. Intelligence is a complex human attribute that can’t be perfectly defined or perfectly measured. The problem with IQ s that it appears to be an authoritative measurement by psychologists. However, IQ is far from authoritative. It is really just one way to view intelligence. IQ is not a terrible measurement of intelligence, it is not just fully accurate. By presenting the intelligence of a person as one number, we run the risk of limiting our potential. A single number also implies permanence, leading to false views of intelligence. It used to be believed that intelligence was mostly genetic, but this is not the case. Intelligence can be improved, depending on how you choose to use your brain.
   The newer research emphasizes the plasticity of the brain. The means that the brain itself is a modifiable structure. The more you use it and challenge it, the more you can build on your intellect. If you give up and you believe you have a limited intelligence, then you won’t improve it.
   Stephen Hawking is commonly regarded as a genius for his work in physics and black holes. He was once asked what his IQ was. His reply was: “I have no idea. People who boast about their IQ are losers.” He clearly doesn’t puyt too much significance on the number. He doesn’t even know his own IQ. But the real takeaway message is that when you are a true genius and have true accomplishments, IQ becomes revealed for what it is. That is, just another number.
