Overview

This book reviews psychological research on practical intelligence and describes its importance in everyday life. The authors reveal the importance of tacit knowledge - what we have learned from our own experience through action. Although it has been seen as an indispensable element of expertise, intelligence researchers have found it difficult to quantify. Based on years of research, Dr. Sternberg and his colleagues have found that tacit knowledge can be quantified and can be taught." "This volume thoroughly examines studies of practical intelligence in the United States, as well as in many other parts of the world, and for varied occupations, such as management, military leadership, teaching, research, and sales.

Editorial Reviews

Paul Chance, PhD
Do you know someone who is "book smart" , yet can't figure out how to change a light bulb? According to Practical Intelligence in Everyday Life people who excell in academics often lack the kind of brains needed in other settings. ..this book is intended primarily for scholars, but should prove interesting for most PT readers.
Psychology Today
From the Publisher

"...this book os intended primarily for scholars, but should prove accessible and interesting for most PT readers." Psychology Today
