The Art and Science of Effective Intelligence: How to Develop and Manage Different Levels and Kinds of Intelligence with DBM®

Intelligence is broadly the ability to think, feel and do things well. As such there are different ways of doing, thinking, and feeling effectively. Gone are the days of thinking about intelligence only as a fixed intelligence quotient (IQ). Increasingly different types of intelligences have been identified as well as a recognition that intelligence can be increased, as well as decreased. The effectiveness of any intelligence is to enable us to be more effective in managing ourselves and the world around us.

We are born with practically no intelligences, and we must learn or create them. This ability to learn and create is uniquely human. How we do this learning and creating is central to our developing of our intelligences.

Since the work of the psychologist Binet, and others, intelligence had been considered as a fixed thing and measured through IQ tests. Tests do not measure a single activity though. When we model traditional intelligence testing, we can identify five levels of activity that will contribute or undermine the overall score. These are:1) Intelligence, 2) Skill, 3) Competence, 4) Performance, 5) Behaviour. All of these can be improved with practice and reduced through lack of practice.

The singularity of Intelligence itself has been questioned and the identification of many different types of intelligence have increased in recent times.

With the increased emphasis on different types of intelligences there have been arguments about which things to include. Should talents, aptitudes, and capabilities, for example, be included as types of intelligence? Howard Gardener is well known for popularising seven, then eight , and then nine, types of “Multiple Intelligences. They are: 1) Visual – Spatial, 2) Linguistic – Verbal, 3) Logical- Mathematical, 4) Body – Kinesthetic, 5) Musical, 6) Interpersonal, 7) Intra-personal, 8) Naturalistic (environmental), 9) Existentialist.

These intelligences, as outlined by Howard Gardener are “Content Behavioural Type Intelligences”. in DBM®. They are different content areas that we can develop abilities in. His nine types can useful be extended to include:  10) Emotional Intelligence, 11) Olfactory – Gustatory Intelligence, 11) Vestibular Intelligence, 12) Animal Intelligence, 13) Mechanical Intelligence, and other content type that people specialise in..All of these “Content Behavioural Type Intelligences” can be managed in different ways with different levels of Intelligence. Eastern spiritual practices have prioritised these for thousands of years though they were not included in the western ideas about IQ. The five are 1) Being Present; being connected to the here and now, 2) Being Intelligence, how we do things well (the traditional western intelligence fits here), 3) Being clever, how we do things, strategy, planning, 4) Being wise, wisdom, understanding why things are as they are, 5) Being enlightened, understanding the deeper nature of reality. These ways of being are behavioural being, not a static fixed being,

In DBM® five main levels of intelligence operate in the five levels of our self-managing.

DBM® Self-Managing Level DBM® Intelligence Level
Supervising Enlightened
Directing Wise
Managing Clever

Content Present

 

In this training John McWhirter will teach his integration of all the main types of intelligences as well as how they can be integrated effectively and further developed.

John will teach the 5 main intelligence levels and how they expand to 19 for modelling in DBM®. He will guide participants to explore the 13 “Content Behavioural Type Intelligences” listed above and how to identify other types as well as sub-types, and how to develop them.

John will also guide participants in how to help themselves and others develop and manage their many intelligences, how to be intelligent with intelligences.
