3 June 1996

Robert Sternberg is Professor of Psychology at Yale, and he thinks that intelligence tests are missing out on an important ability commonly known as common sense.
Robert Sternberg: I had a fourth-grade teacher who expected more of me than the mediocre work I'd been doing in the first three grades for whatever reason, and I wanted to make her happy, and I started doing A work.
Robert Sternberg: Well we found I think in the study you're referring to, that there was actually a negative relationship between the people who are perceived in business as being wise and those who were being perceived as creative.

 Weaving a tall tale about intelligence: how Robert J. Sternberg keeps trying to derail the science of mental abilities. ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Sternberg argued that conventional ability tests were rather narrow in scope when compared to laypersons' views of what constituted 'smart' or 'intelligent' behavior.
Sternberg admits that higher levels of intelligence leads to generally good outcomes, "Intelligence is correlated with many positive life outcomes, such as generalized socioeconomic status, being employed, income from employment, various kinds of evaluations of job success, prestige of job, marital stability, and freedom from criminal record….
Sternberg then tries to claim that Bill Clinton got into problems with his sexual escapades because intelligent people make "mistakes that characterize many individuals who are intelligent, even brilliant, but at the same time unwise and even foolish." I don't see it like that at all.

 Human Intelligence: Practical Intelligence
Sternberg argues not only that intelligence is a developing and context dependent notion, but also that traditional measures of intelligence such as IQ tests capture only a part of what it means to be intelligent, which he defines as the ability to adapt flexibly and effectively to the environment.
Sternberg has developed domain-specific tests of tacit knowledge that are based on situations that an individual might face in the real world.
Sternberg has argued that tacit knowledge tests are better predictors of career success than measures of g or at least the best secondary predictors of career success after taking g into account.

 Skeptic Interview with Robert Sternberg   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Sternberg: The commonplace understanding of heritability often doesn't realize that heritability is calculated within a range of environments, at a given time, for a given population.
Sternberg: No. And if you were to tell someone in physics that the final test is whether it works economically in the real world, they would tell you that that has nothing to do with truth at all.
Sternberg: There is no absolute, agreed-on definition of "intelligence." One of the battles in the field, arguably the battle, even more than the heredity-environment issue, is what you include under the definition of intelligence.

Robert J. Sternberg is IBM Professor of Psychology and Education at Yale University.
I agree, with Sternberg, that teachers could be more affective if they considered the different thinking styles of their students, that they should recognize their stylistic strengths and not try to force them to be something that they are not.

If you didn't know that Bob Sternberg was president-elect of the 100,000-strong American Psychological Association, author of 18 books and one of America's most prestigious and prolific commentators not only on the way people think but also of the way they love and hate, you might assume that he was a New Jersey cab-driver.
Sternberg's critics might point out that values are often relative, or that beyond the intellectual stratosphere - in the taxi-cab, for example - these ideas might not seem terribly new.

 What's wrong with college admissions
The idea, Sternberg explained, is to give college admissions officers a hard measure of creative and practical skills grounded in psychological theory--allowing them to tap a broader range of applicants' skills, better predict who will succeed in college and, therefore, admit students who otherwise might not have made the cut.
Those that are successfully intelligent, said Sternberg, recognize and capitalize on their strengths in the three areas of intelligence and correct or compensate for their weaknesses.
Sternberg and his colleagues gave a Web-based or paper-and-pencil version of the test to 793 students at 13 community colleges and universities around the country.

 Human Intelligence: Robert J. Sternberg
Robert Sternberg is best known for his innovative study of human intelligence.
Encouraged by the results of these early studies, Sternberg established a 'componential' theory of intelligence in which he associates the various stages of information processing with specific functions of the brain.
As Robert Glaser commented, "the over-all message in Beyond IQ is 'that a broader view must be taken to more accurately assess and measure the range of intellectual capabilities (Trosky, p.

 TIP: Theories
One of the most fundamental components according to Sternberg's research are the metacognition or "executive" processes that control the strategies and tactics used in intelligent behavior.
Sternberg has used the theory to explain exceptional intelligence (gifted and retardation) in children and also to critique existing intelligence tests.
For example, in a study that involved adults and children solving simple analogies, he found that the youngest children solved the problems differently and theorized that this was because they had not yet developed the ability to discern higher order relations.

Many theories-- of intelligence and of other constructs-- have eventually been consigned to the dustheaps of history because the theories were never followed up with measurements that met even the minimal psychometric criteria for a usable test.

 A review of "The Psychology of Hate," edited by Robert J. Sternberg.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
As Sternberg defines his "hate propaganda," foisted upon the unwary by demagogues using stories, he fails to recognize that this mechanism of indoctrination is used by every religion, political movement, advocacy group, governments, etc., and for a host of causes on both the Left and the Right.
Sternberg shows his contempt for science: "The risk in work such as this [IQ research] is that public-policy implications may come to be ideologically driven rather than data driven, and to drive the research rather than be driven by the data….
Sternberg seems to embrace hate as a conspiratorial phenomenon, one that is completely fabricated by evil demagogues to be spoon fed to the masses for nefarious goals.

The low scores Sternberg achieved as a child led later to his theory of practical intelligence--and a book by the same name--about the kind of smarts that matter in the real world.
