Intelligence tests commonly compute measures for only one type of intelligence, that is, analytical intelligence.
Others hardly mentioned are creative intelligence, psychic intelligence, or emotional intelligence, to name some. What is this preoccupation with analytical intelligence?
I offer an answer: the domination and influence that science and technology has had since the Dark Ages, which continues to overshadow everything else there is to know about the human psyche. Until humankind transcends the lure of power that analytical intelligence creates with science and technology, the umbra of its shadow over every other aspect of human intelligence will only deepen. Already science and technology, worthy studies, has given a stick of dynamite to children in the world, hopelessly, emotionally stunted.
How intelligent is the human race?..if all that is left on Earth is fauna and flora minus humankind.
