Perception of intelligence | Psychology homework help
**ONLY FOR PSYCHOLOGY WRITERS ONLY**
Different cultures conceptualize and measure components of intelligence in various ways. Some cultures value a person’s ability to quickly process and respond to information. Other cultures may value one’s ability to consult with members of the same culture who have more life experience in order to solve problems. Still, other cultures value creativity, formal education, and literacy as a basis of intelligence. With so many variations in cultural beliefs, how do researchers ensure accurate measurements of intelligence among different cultures? For example, can standardized tests of intellectual ability from a Western culture adequately and appropriately measure the intelligence valued by Kpelle farmers in Liberia?
For this Assignment, consider how cultures interpret intelligence differently. Reflect on how various cultures measure intelligence. Use your culture of interest and, in addition, select another culture that defines intelligence differently. Consider how you might test different cognitive abilities (e.g., memory, organization, and visualization) in each of these two different cultures.
The Assignment (4 pages…does not include reference and title)
- Describe the two cultures you selected and compare how each culture perceives intelligence.
- Explain three cultural factors that might influence how intelligence is perceived in each culture you selected.
- Explain how you might measure intelligence in each culture and why you selected this method.
