Cultural Aspects of Intelligence

 

Introduction

 

Your textbook discusses the challenges of constructing intelligence tests that are culturally fair

 

and not biased in favour of people from the dominant culture. This is very important, especially

 

in multi-cultural societies like Canada. However, let?s step back from the issue of testing and

 

examine the broader question about the universality of human intelligence. If intelligence, like

 

other aspects of the human body, evolved throughout evolutionary history by natural selection,

 

then we should expect that all humans possess the same design for intelligence. For example, we

 

all learn to use language, to do basic arithmetic, to perform basic logical reasoning, etcetera.

 

Clearly, there are individual differences in intellectual abilities in the same way that some people

 

run faster, grow taller, or have different-coloured hair. But the basic intellectual capacities that

 

humans possess have to work in an astoundingly diverse array of cultural and physical

 

environments. What may be genius in one environment may not provide the same advantages in

 

another.

 


 

Instructions

 

First, watch the video Battle of the Brains, at http://watchdocumentary.org/watch/battle-of-thebrains-video_825c90e78.html. It demonstrates different kinds of intelligence in a very

 

entertaining manner.

 


 

Note

 

If you do not have access to the website, then instead of watching the video, please refer to the

 

Hock (2013) reading ?Just how are you intelligent?? You will use either Battle of the Brains or

 

the Hock (2013) reading as the basis for comparing intelligence of different kinds in two

 

different environments. You may also want to search online for the video (for example, it is also

 

available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JmFS75Vx2k)

 

Your task in this assignment is to compare and contrast the kinds of intelligence that are needed

 

in two different environments. Environment A is one with which we are all familiar: any village,

 

town, or city. Environment B is one with which you may not be familiar: the !Kung San people

 

of the Kalahari desert. (The ! is pronounced as a tongue-click.)

 

The !Kung San lifestyle has changed very little over millennia until recent contact with the

 

outside world. Traditionally they are hunter-gatherers who follow the food supply for much of

 


 

the year. Without much interaction with other people, they have been dependent on themselves

 

for survival, and therefore cooperation, interdependence, mutual trust and helpfulness have been

 

vital to their existence. As nomads, they have had little need or opportunity to accumulate

 

possessions. The main sources of food are animals which can be hunted or trapped, and whatever

 

grows naturally; they traditionally have not practiced agriculture or animal husbandry. The group

 

size is up to about fifty individuals.

 

(If you are interested in optional further reading on the !Kung San, see http://socialshadow.tripod.com/index.html.)

 

Using either Battle of the Brains or the Hock (2013) reading as the basis for understanding

 

multiple types of intelligence, compare and contrast how each type of intelligence is important

 

and why, as it applies to familiar and unfamiliar environments.
