835. Meeting each other by speaking the same language

Here the text by H. D. Brown continues. The first part is on post #834.

The reason for this apparent contradiction is that IQ tests measure very specific verbal, mathematical, and logical abilities. Language learning requires other forms of intelligence, such as:

-         interpersonal communication ability (for perceiving and understanding other people)
-         self-knowlege (for developing your own unique pathway to success)
-         musical ability (for hearing intonation and rhythm of the language)
-         muscular coordination (for pronouncing the language)

All of these abilities are forms of intelligence that aren’t calculated into IQ tests. (Page 47 in his book) / Photo from: thefancarpet com. singin in the rain (1952)
