  9. 9. CONCLUSION: The concept of intelligence has been one of the most contentious in psychology, with controversy spanning the lifetime of the research area . The most controversial claims have come from certain scientists that intelligence varies between races , giving some races the right to govern over others . Regardless of the way in which intelligence is defined or measured, human beings have great intellectual abilities , to think, reason ,and understand the world in which we live, the way other people think and act, and to understand ourselves , As we advance in our development as individual and collectively as a species, recognizing and appreciating the diversity that is contained within this concept may be more valuable than trying to ascertain how to quantify it .
