A New Theory of Human Intelligence | Scott Barry Kaufman | TEDxZumbroRiver

Posted by in category: business

Do standard tests (like I.Q.) lie about how smart you really are? Do they show what you can really achieve? In this paradigm-shifting talk, UPenn psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman presents a new theory of human intelligence.

Scott Barry Kaufman is deeply interested in using psychological science to help everyone– all kinds of minds— live a creative, fulfilling, and meaningful life. A main takeaway from his work is that everyone is capable of creativity, the key is finding the thing that will let them shine the most.

Scott is the Scientific Director of the Imagination Institute and conducts research in the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania. His writing has appeared in The Atlantic, Scientific American, Psychology Today, and Harvard Business Review. His latest book is Wired to Create: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
