Example text

Hierarchical models of intelligence The g-factor of intelligence could not alone account for the correlations between the different kinds of cognitive tests which participants had to complete. This triggered research following the notion that there are several factors of intelligence, perhaps on different levels of abstraction. , Burt, 1949; Vernon, 1950, 1965). There are specialised abilities at the very bottom of the hierarchical system, followed by minor group factors, and above those again major group factors.

This problem stems from SI’s “macro-character”. This means that a systems intelligent person acts over a certain time-span intelligently within a system. What is “intelligent” is then defined by the person × system characteristics rather than by absolute standards. SI can then only be inferred from dynamic aspects and is thus not clearly defined. In contrast, an intelligence test is more “absolute”: a task can be solved or not. In SI this view cannot be taken: there is no absolute standard to be systems intelligent and it cannot be defined nomothetically.
