Intelligence is defined as the ability to excel at a variety of tasks, especially those related to academic success. Throughout
history there have been many theorists who study intelligence. The three main models of intelligence reviewed in this website
are Spearman's Model, Sternberg's Model, and Gardner's Multiple Intelligences. They are all different theories of intelligence
and they suggest that there may be more than one kind of intelligence.
Sternberg and Gardner both suggest that people should be evaluated on the basis of factors other than scores on standard
intelligence tests. Relying on these scores will cause us to overlook a person's other strenghts.
