Intelligence

How Smart Are We Really?

ARE WE GETTING DUMBER?

For the first time since intelligence has been measured on a large scale, the global IQ is falling. Jakob Pietschnig, intelligence researcher at the University of Vienna, was able to prove this. So, is everyone getting dumber? And what does the IQ actually signify? One thing is certain: This book will make us all smarter!

There are many ideas and myths surrounding the brain’s horsepower. Emotional intelligence is one of them. Does it really exist? Can it be measured? The answer: not really. Is someone who behaves outside the norm automatically highly gifted? Again: not really. Jakob Pietschnig dispels the legends surrounding intelligence and has some good news. You can train your abilities and improve your performance – at any age.
