Sternberg's cognitive theory

  1. 1. V.M.WESTERBERG'S SUPER BRIEF DEVELOPMENTAL THEORIES SERIES ROBERT STERNBERG’S TRIARCHIC THEORY OF INTELLIGENCE Sternberg’s triarchic theory of intelligence suggests that intelligence is made up of three components: 1. Components: Componential intelligence relates to the mental components involved in analyzing data, and in solving problems, especially problems involving rational behaviour. 2. Experience: Experiential intelligence refers to the relationship between intelligence, people's prior experience, and their ability to cope with new situations. 3. Context: Contextual intelligence involves analysing the situation, the degree of success people demonstrate in facing the demands of their everyday, real-world environments. Sternberg believed that success in a career requires this type of intelligence, also called PRACTICAL INTELLIGENCE, intelligence that is learned primarily by observing others and modelling their behaviour. Components: Screwdriver Experience: Mechanic Context: The Sahara desert Success in career: I’ve got the brains, I’ve got the experience, Where do l apply them?
