    I see there being an underlying intelligence potential (g-factor) that can be harnessed to learn many if not all these multiple intelligences. That is why intelligences seem to correlate while there are still anecdotes of people not doing well in some areas of intelligence while doing well on others: because they haven't actually practiced some of these areas using their g-factor.
    This g-factor also needs to be trained somewhat at a very young age, though.

    Genius is the specialism into a particular intelligence, and I believe genius is particularly exclusive, where it's practitioners are very weak in other specialisms. Commonly university students are very poor in specialisms outside of their own, with some exceptions. So extreme intelligence doesn't follow G, in the majority of cases. General intelligence, if strived for, would hinder genius in any specialism. The human brain doesn't seem to function in that way.

    So what of twice exceptional people, how do they fit into any version of a single intelligence? I can not see that it would be possible.

    Tell the truth about intelligence you ass. Begin With the intellectually gifted born. Like myself. My natural state of mind, in other word's, my consciousnesses was from deep in my mind. Your layer . you people.

    I am building a space craft out of tin foil. I need you to send me jet fuel in jars. Also ketchup packets so I have something to eat.

    id have to go with the general intelligence model, but the way we measure it is incomplete, i mean, id think, there is one over arching intelligence, made out of several different aspects that all add up to your general intelligence. and dividing these aspects is pointless, since they are all intertwined and rely on eachother… but fuck do i kno… im just a bored stoner.

    Sampling Theory ?
    3D Model of Intelligence ?
    Multi Factor Theory – Throndike ?
    Three Factor Theory – Spearman ?
    GC-FC Model of Intelligence – Cattle ?

    I was really hoping there would be some mention of the difference between education and intelligence. There have often been sudo-science IQ test that measure education and call it intelligence. People often think just because they have advanced degrees they are intelligent when really it is more about memory, playing the game, and/or money. Having intelligence helps navigate these systems but if you have a poor memory or are lacking in motivation your status in academia will likely suffer.

    I would place intelligence more toward universal problem solver and an intuitive understanding of truth. If motivation, memory, and education in talents and abilities are equal then intelligence will rise to the top.

    An anecdote from my school:

    One time, our psychology professor had the entire class do IQ tests. Almost everyone could be considered pretty smart since it was the top tier public school. We turn in the tests and after multiple countings, it turned out no one in the room except the professor had less than 140. Why? Because it was a team effort. People were shouting wrong and correct answers left and right so much that even the people who didn't want to cheat overheard the most of it. As a rule, people who didn't help or accept help had the lowest scores.

    The moral of the story? People are social animals. We work best and are sometimes smartest in large groups. Sometimes, however, we can be stupid as a lamp post.

    What is maximum intelligence? I would say that it’s the ability to understand any problem in all its detail instantly and to instantly provide a complete solution. But that’s just one facet of intelligence. This is a level of intelligence that would understand all of the Universe and how to manipulate it to the extent of anything that’s possible. However, a complete intelligence would also understand whether any manipulation of its environment should be be done at all. Where human intelligence really falls short is in the latter aspect. We manipulate our world without regard to the ultimate consequences of what we’re doing. We tend towards doing things that can be done because they can be done and without consideration of whether it should be done at all. We are in a sense blinded by our impulses. We manipulate and then deal with the consequences rather than understanding the consequences before doing that manipulation.

    Okay, Spearman didn't only have a g factor. He also had a specific or s factor, well multiple s factors.So he believed there was one g factor and multiple s factors.
    Also spearman later admitted to the existence of numerical, spacial and verbal group factors

    Surprised you missed Gf and Gc theory and also one of the most important reasons for understanding intelligence, or individual differences. So that those who excel can be educated in a way that maximises their potential, and those who need assistance in some areas can also receive support that will help them get the most out life. Most developed countries employ a form of meritocracy where individual differences tend to predict outcomes for people in adulthood. By understanding these differences in an objective way relatively early in life, people can be offered pathways that give them better opportunities for success than chance alone, particularly those who didn't get lucky in the lottery of genetics.
