Perception of Intelligence

Different cultures conceptualize and measure components of intelligence in various ways. Some cultures value a person’s ability to quickly process and respond to information. Other cultures may value one’s ability to consult with members of the same culture who have more life experience in order to solve problems. Still, other cultures value creativity, formal education, and literacy as a basis of intelligence. With so many variations in cultural beliefs, how do researchers ensure accurate measurements of intelligence among different cultures? For example, can standardized tests of intellectual ability from a Western culture adequately and appropriately measure the intelligence valued by Kpelle farmers in Liberia?

For this Assignment, consider how cultures interpret intelligence differently. Reflect on how various cultures measure intelligence. Use your Final Project culture of interest and, in addition, select another culture that defines intelligence differently. Consider how you might test different cognitive abilities (e.g., memory, organization, and visualization) in each of these two different cultures.

The Assignment (4–5 pages)

  • Describe the two cultures (South African and Arabic Cultures please) you selected and compare how each culture perceives intelligence.
  • Explain three cultural factors that might influence how intelligence is perceived in each culture you selected.
  • Explain how you might measure intelligence in each culture and why you selected this method.
  • Support your responses using the Learning Resources and the current literature.

For purposes of this paper, imagine the following: As a Federal Public Defender you are assigned a case where your client, John Smith, an American citizen, is arrested and indicted for treason and sedition for supporting ISIS. Smith has demonstrated his support by flying an ISIS flag in front of his house, publicly endorsing and supporting ISIS, visiting ISIS websites to contribute money, expressing his hatred toward the United States and his desire to establish an Islamic caliphate in the U.S., and dressing like an ISIS soldier. As a Public Defender, you have no choice but to accept Mr. Smith as your client and defend him to the best of your ability even if you strongly disagree with him. How would you handle Mr. Smith’s case? Would it make a difference in your defense strategy if the government added a charge related to a violation of the Patriot Act?

nutrition label

Find a food label of a food you have tried or would like to try.  Include an active link to an image of that food label that includes the Ingredients List AND the Nutrition Facts Panel.   This must be a packaged food – not a fast food or restaurant item.  In 150 words or more answer the following questions:

  1. Why did you choose this particular food?  Is it one that you eat often? Did you include an active link to the label showing the nutrition facts and the ingredients?
  2. In which food group does this food fit into ChooseMyPlate.  Recall that this is a food group plan that groups foods according to their nutrient content.  Empty calorie foods (such as candy or chips), would NOT fit into a food group. They would be in the discretionary kcalorie category.  Likewise, cheddar flavored crackers do not have enough calcium to fit into the dairy food group – they would fit into grains.  If you are not sure where your food fits, make your best guess and then ask for help in your discussion posting.
  3. Look at the Nutrition Facts Label for your food.  List the % of the Daily Value (DV) for Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium and Iron. (or Vitamin D, iron, calcium, and potassium if your label is one of the new ones!)  Read the definition for the Label Claim ‘HIGH” in the “Glossary of terms on Food Labels” in chapter 2.  Is your food high in any of these 4 micronutrients?
  4. Does your food contain any food additives? If yes, tell us what type of food additive it is and present information on it’s safety rating from the Center for Science in the Public Interest found at:  Chemical Cuisine (use this active link)
  5. Now that you have looked closely at the food label, do you think this item is a part of a healthy diet? Why or why not?

Creating an Active Link:

If a link is ‘active’, when you click on it you will be taken directly to the website.

Even if your link was active in your word document, you will need to recreate that active link

in HTML. Follow these steps to make your link active:

  • Place your cursor where you want to insert your web address and click on the link icon (it is on the 2nd taskbar, third from left – it looks like the link of a chain).
  • When you click on the link icon you will see a new screen appear that will allow you to insert your website address.
  • Type your address in the box under URL radio button, click OK and your active link will be inserted wherever you placed your cursor in the text of the message.
  • If you would rather have text than the actual address, type the text you want into the box under “link text‟.
  • When you are finished, click “preview‟ and check your link to make sure it is active and takes you to the site.  Then you can click “Post”.
