The traditional and somewhat narrow view of intelligence considered academic ability, or intelligence quotient (lQ), to be the main factor in determining who was "bright" or intelligent. More recently, this view has quite rightly been challenged, and it is now more commonly accepted that intelligence is in fact multi-faceted, and not a simply a matter of academic ability. There are different forms of intelligence e.g. ,physical, as in a top class football player, or an athlete. Just as top class athletes or footballers work to develop their abilities and skills, so you too can work to develop your learning capacity. It is important to find out where you’re strengths and your weaknesses as a learner lie.
