Episode Notes

Does IQ matters? What is intelligence? How do you define if someone is intelligent? And if someone gets a high score on their IQ test, does that means they will be successful? 

In this episode, I was joined by Howard Gardner, an American developmental psychologist and the John H. and Elisabeth A. Hobbs Research Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education at Harvard University, to talk about all things intelligence!

We talked about how Howard get involve in the intelligence study, the different kinds of intelligence, and high IQ correlates to being successful, and we also talked about synthesizing intelligence!

We try to break down the "internet mogul", Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates, and see how they synthesize their mind!
