Culture and Intelligence
This paper discusses the relationship between culture and intelligence. This paper mainly describes that intelligence cannot fully or even meaningfully be understood outside its cultural context. Behavior that is considered intelligent in one culture may be considered unintelligent in another culture, and so on. Moreover, people in different cultures have different implicit theories of intelligence, so may not even mean the same thing by the word. The relationships between different aspects of intelligence can vary across cultures, with correlations that are positive in one setting proving to be negative in another. The paper opens with a general discussion of issues regarding the relationship between the two concepts. It then describes the theory of successful intelligence, which also supports interface between culture and intelligence.
