  • 4. Who we are?· We are Humans.· Humans are characteristic for their mental capability.· Humans are uniquely to communication for self-expression, exchange ideas,…· The human body consists of a head, neck, torso, two arms and two legs.· In the human body are around 300 tirillion cells which are the basic unit of life.· The organ system of the body include the: musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, integumentar, urinary, lymphatic, immune, respiratory, and reproductive system.· The most important organ is the brain which is part of the nervous system.Robert Brunet Page 4 of 51
  • 5. Our brain · The adult human brain weighs on average about  1.5 kg with a volume of around 1130 cm3. · Anatomists divide each himusphere into four “lobes”,  the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, occipital lobe, and  temporal lobe.Robert Brunet Page 5 of 51
  • 6. What is to be intelligent?· Intellectual ability significantly higher than average. It is usuallybelieved to be an innate, personal aptitude for intellectual activities thatcannot be acquired through personal effort.· Intelligence includes abilities such as: abstract thought, understanding,self-awareness, communication, reasoning, learning, retaining, planning andproblem solving. More than 130Robert Brunet Page 6 of 51
  • 7. 2. Multiple IntelligencesRobert Brunet Page 7 of 51
  • 8. Multiple IntelligencesThe theory of multiple intelligences (TMI) was proposed by HowardGardner in 1983.TMI differentiates intelligence into various specific modalities, ratherthan seeing it as dominated by a single general ability. • Logical-mathematical • Spatial • Linguistic • Bodily-kinesthetic • Musical • Interpersonal • Intrapersonal • Naturalistic • ExistentialRobert Brunet Page 8 of 51
  • 9. 1. Logical-mathematical• This area has to do with logic, abstractions, reasoning andnumbers.• It is often assumed to: mathematics, chess, computerprogramming and other logical or numerical activities(mathematical ability).• Also reasoning capabilities, recognizing abstract patterns,scientific thinking and investigation and the ability to performcomplex calculations.• Logical reasoning is closely linked to fluid intelligence and togeneral ability.Robert Brunet Page 9 of 51
  • 10. 2. Spatial•This area deals with spatial judgment and the ability to visualizewith the minds eye.• Careers which suit those with this type of intelligence includeartists,designers and architects.• A spatial person is also good with puzzles. Spatial ability is one ofthe three factors beneath g in the hierarchical model of intelligence.Robert Brunet Page 10 of 51
  • 11. 3. Linguistic• This area has to do with words, spoken or written.• People with high verbal-linguistic intelligence display a facilitywith words and languages. They are typically good at reading,writing, telling stories and memorizing words along with dates.• They tend to learn best by reading, taking notes, listening tolectures, and by discussing and debating about what they havelearned.• Those with verbal-linguistic intelligence learn foreign languagesvery easily as they have high verbal memory and recall, and anability to understand and manipulate syntax and structure.Robert Brunet Page 11 of 51
  • 12. 4. Bodily-kinesthetic• The core elements of the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence are controlof ones bodily motions and the capacity to handle objects skillfully.• In  theory,  people  who  have  bodily-kinesthetic  intelligence  should  learn  better  by involving  muscular  movement,  and  are  generally  good  at  physical  activities  such  as sports or dance. •  Careers  that  suit  those  with  this  intelligence  include:  athletes,  pilots,  dancers, musicians, actors, surgeons and soldiers.Robert Brunet Page 12 of 51

  • 24. 4. How to memorize the infoWe can just memorize one thing “DATA”. The capital of France is Paris.Data: France capital ParisFocus: “France” & “Paris” France capital ParisRobert Brunet Page 24 of 51

  • 26. 6. Direction of the memorization· We have to memorize from more to less.· When are we studying we have to reason and understand theinformation, this is the way that the data will stay in hour mind for along time.· Repetition:- The repetition is one of the most used methodologies. But it is abad methodology.- We try to memorize pure data by repeting a lot of times.· Inverosimil association:- What happens when you see something amazing?- That this will be in your mind for a long time.- Then you have to do the same when you are trying to memorizeconvert flat data in something amazing that you cannot forget.Robert Brunet Page 26 of 51

  • 37. 3. Methods for SR• When we are reading we have to use the pen to remark important information.• When we are reading, we don’t have to talk or think in other things.• When we are reading, we have to be in a calm space and in a good position.•Read faster is possible because the mental velocity that we canabsorbe is 60.000 words/minute (movie) and the fastest reading is1.000 words/minute.Robert Brunet Page 37 of 51

Highlight the areas in your outline that were most troublesome.• Make flashcards:• Get help:• Sleep: You need at least seven hours of sleep a night to function. Tests are designed to make you think. If you are sleep-deprived, you won’t be able to remember any of the information you worked so hard to cram into your brain.• Stay calm: Do not panic at the exam! Even if at first glance the test is overwhelming, remember to breathe. If a question seems too hard, answer all the questions you know, then return to the ones you left blank. Remind yourself that you are prepared.• Don’t rush: You have spent at least two weeks studying, so what’s another couple of minutes? Work through the exam slowly and read all the questions before answering them.• Relax post-exam: Don’t let panic overwhelm you. Even if you think you bombed the exam, worrying will not change your score.Robert Brunet Page 47 of 51
