Molwick
Free sample

This book develops the concept of intelligence as an ability to form relationships. An essential element of knowledge management is the degree of confidence associated with the response of relational intelligence to a problem or a system request.

Also, the following definitions and common usages of the word intelligence are studied: general intelligence, factor g, intelligence quotients (IQ), multiple intelligences, emotional, and human intelligence types - male and female.

Other important aspects of this essay are:
• Characteristics of logic, intuition and language
• Creativity as a set of complex brain functions
• Gifted children and Mendelian genetics
• Influence of heredity and environment, or nature vs. nurture
• Experimental research with twins and families

Finally, a metaphor is presented as a comparison between possible concepts and indicators of intelligence and cars. To mention a few: power, speed, cargo, passengers, safety, autonomy, skill of the driver.

About the author

José Tiberius is the author of all the Molwick publisher books. With over 40 million visitors and two million books in PDF format, he is surely one of the most widely read authors in Spanish of scientific essays in the current millennium.

There are more than 20000 quotes to Jose's scientific and literary works, where his 15 books on theoretical physics, theory of evolution, quantitative genetics, cognitive theory, the philosophy of science, metaphysics and children's stories have been translated into English, French, Italian and Portuguese. Many of these quotes - to all these different fields - come from universities, projects done by university students and blogs created by teaching professionals and educational specialists.

When a witch proposes theories that involve a paradigm shift, she should be judged neither by the Inquisition nor by her specific academic education, no matter How Big it might be, but for the logical consistency and empirical testing of the new ideas. Otherwise, we will be lead into the classic ad wominen, hominen or whominen fallacy.

“One of the most important books I’ve ever read—an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.” – Bill Gates

“Hans Rosling tells the story of ‘the secret silent miracle of human progress’ as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly.” —Melinda Gates

"Factfulness by Hans Rosling, an outstanding international public health expert, is a hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases." - Former U.S. President Barack Obama

Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts.

When asked simple questions about global trends—what percentage of the world’s population live in poverty; why the world’s population is increasing; how many girls finish school—we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.

In Factfulness, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon Hans Rosling, together with his two long-time collaborators, Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why this happens. They reveal the ten instincts that distort our perspective—from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of us and them) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse).

Our problem is that we don’t know what we don’t know, and even our guesses are informed by unconscious and predictable biases.

It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. That doesn’t mean there aren’t real concerns. But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a worldview based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most.

Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and moving stories, Factfulness is an urgent and essential book that will change the way you see the world and empower you to respond to the crises and opportunities of the future.

“This book is my last battle in my life-long mission to fight devastating ignorance...Previously I armed myself with huge data sets, eye-opening software, an energetic learning style and a Swedish bayonet for sword-swallowing. It wasn’t enough. But I hope this book will be.” Hans Rosling, February 2017.
