Question description

Application:
Perception of Intelligence

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 Final Project 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.

I have not picked a culture of interest yet for my final project so just pick one yourself and I will use it for my final project that I will need help with. Thank you.

The Assignment (4–5
pages)

 

  • 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.

  • Support your responses using the
         Learning Resources and the current literature. (The Handbook of Culture
         and Psychology Edited by David Matsumoto (2001). APA format.
