I did some research on wikipedia.org about intellect. This was on the website http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intellect. What I discovered was that there are many different types of ways that person's intellectual level could be determined. And that IQ tests do not really prove how intellegant a person is. This is becuase not everyone is as smart as others in the same ways. A quote that I liked was "This led Gardner to break intelligence down into at least eight different components: logical, linguistic, spatial, musical, kinesthetic, naturalist, intrapersonal and interpersonal intelligences". This quote shows that everybody is smart, but in their own category.
Another quote that I liked was "He argues that psychometric tests address only linguistic and logical plus some aspects of spatial intelligence; other forms have been entirely ignored." this shows how an IQ test or tests like these, do not determine how smart you are. I think that this research really helped me becuse it gave me some good points to think about.
