Book description
A high score on an IQ test is not the only way to determine our brainpower or how successful in life we will be. While IQ assesses important aptitudes such as our logical, verbal, numerical, and spatial reasoning skills, true practical intelligence -- the kind that we rely on in our everyday lives -- goes beyond these skills. Other more "hidden" talents like our creativity, intuition, emotional sensitivity, appreciation for the world around us, and physical ability are just as essential for solving problems and overcoming life's challenges. With 160 scientifically proven self-tests and tips for improvement, as well as lively color illustrations throughout, Are You Smarter Than You Think? is a revealing and fun guide that shows you how to build the innate and wide-ranging power of your mind.

Although each type ? musical, spatial, bodily-kinaesthetic, intrapersonal, interpersonal and an affinity with natural phenomena ? is present in different capacities, most children can become reasonably competent in each one, if given the necessary encouragement and instruction. The benefit is that rather than being stuck with a narrow intelligence profile, children can make use of various strengths to attain their full potential and succeed in school and later on in life. ? ?Back cover.… (more)
