Practical intelligence is the most underestimated word in the childhood of any children. Every child is special and every child has some ability to grasp something very unique. But in the starting phase of life their dream got crushed under the dreams of parents who want to see their child to become engineer, doctor or pilot.
It s rare that any parents could say these words to their childrens “Kid, you want to become photographer or do you want to become a sportsman or do you want to make a career in a field you are really interested in”.
According to Professor Robert J. Sternberg, an eminent psychologist at Yale University in the US defines Practical Intelligence as – It is the ability to adapt to, shape, and select everyday environments.
Practical intelligence means ability to grasp something during everyday activities. It’s rare that anyone can develop practical intelligence in school or college. There are lots of examples of people doing lots of hard work but they fail to get the taste of. And in the opposite lots of people fail to clear their academics and did very well in some particular field. Practical intelligence requires creativity to go beyond in certain field. The perfect example is technology industry which is the complete mixture of hard work, creativity and practical intelligence.
There are lots of legendary examples present in front of us where people fail in academic such as lots of college and school dropout who get success by their creative work and practical approach towards life. The perfect example are Ramanujan, Thomas Edison or Matt Mullenweg, the maker of WordPress who is a college drop out. There are lots of business man’s there who succeed after dropping out from their college.
